The whole nation and its leadership have reiterated firm resolve to transform the country into a true Islamic welfare state in line with the vision of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
March 23, the Pakistan Day, has a special significance not only in the history of Pakistan but also in the Islamic world when the Muslims of the subcontinent began their struggle by passing a historic resolution for establishment of a separate homeland based on a single ideology.
As a result of the seven-year’s unprecedented struggle and invaluable sacrifices, Pakistan came into being on August 14, 1947 after the passage of Lahore Resolution, commonly known the Pakistan Resolution, on March 23, 1940.
This was the day when the Muslims living in the subcontinent decided to have an independent state – the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Since the creation of Pakistan, under the ideology of ‘one-nation one-destination,’ the entire nation celebrates this day with zeal and fervor to achieve the goals of a strong and prosperous Pakistan. —APP
