Freedom leads to enhanced expressions of creativity and original thought, increased productivity and an overall high quality of life. The word ‘freedom’ has great depth of meaning. Freedom is a great motive which became the cause of Tahreek-e-Pakistan it made the Allama Iqbal and Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah to get freedom.
The bones of our forefathers are buried in its soil; people sacrificed their lives, wealth and property for the cause of freedom. The Muslims wanted to establish an Islamic State where their posterity could live in an independent atmosphere.
But alas! after 69 years of freedom, we are still slaves – slaves of the feudal system and ignorant customs and traditions. Unfortunately, our present day leaders are taking the nation away from the cherished destination envisioned by the freedom fighters.
Now it’s the time to be united, discarding all sectarian differences, all caste differences and so on. Bring Pakistan out of the darkness of ignorance, social ills, corruption and divide and bring peace and love on this sacred land.
