I would like to express my deepest gratitude to those who envisioned, which inspired and called for the creation of a separate nation for the Muslims of South Asia that vision: Ambassador Munir Akram

If we witness the travails and suffering of our Kashmiri brothers and sisters, and of the Muslims of India we left behind in India.

If we see the repression, If we see the hate, which is emanating from New Delhi, in the form of the latest legislation that is abusive, of the independence of Pakistan. I think we should all understand why we created our nation, and why we must defend it: Ambassador Munir Akram

It is for this reason we commemorate this occasion. And I believe that all of you will continue to contribute to the glory and the development of Pakistan unstintingly and the full force of your being: Ambassador Munir Akram

I hope, Inshallah, that we will overcome the many challenges we continue to face today, on the economic side, We have to combat the pandemic and defeat the virus.

We have to recover our economy from the effects of the pandemic, and to care for the poor and vulnerable, for the women and children of Pakistan, who are facing the brunt of the pandemic and the economic crisis, that it has unleashed.—PR
