Chairman of the Nazriya Pakistan Council (NPC) Mian Muhammad Javed, Ambassador of Yemen Mohammed Motahar Alashabi, Kazakhstan’s envoy Yerzhan Kistafin, diplomats, dignitaries and a large number of the faithful participated in Dua and Fateha Khawani ceremony held at the Faisal Majsid in connection with the 74th death anniversary of the Founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (d. September 11, 2022).

The Dua & Fateha Khawani ceremony was organized by the NPC.

Executive Editor of the Pakistan Observer and Executive Secretary of the NPC, Gauhar Zahid Malik, family members of the Founder Chairman of the NPC and former Editor-in-Chief of Pakistan Observer Zahid Malik (late) also participated in the Dua ceremony and offered prayers for the blessings of Quaid-e-Azam’s soul.

They paid rich tributes to the Father of the Nation and called him a great leader of the subcontinent under whose leadership, the Muslims of the sub-continent achieved a separate country of their own.

Khateeb of the Faisal Masjid, Dr Zia-ur-Rehman led prayers and highlighted the achievements of the great leader of the Pakistan Movement. We should remember his services for Pakistan in general and for the Ummah in particular, he said.

The learned Khateeb said freedom was a great gift of God and only those nations can value this gift that have been under occupation or are waging a freedom struggle for independence.

He asked the congregation that had gathered in the illuminating prayer hall of the mosque to remember Quaid-e-Azam in their prayers as it was because of him that we are able to live a peaceful, free life according to our choices.

Dr Zia was of the view that Muslims in Myanmar, Palestine and Indian Illegally Occupied Kashmir (IIOK) were facing the worst kind of oppression, persecution and threat to their lives and properties.

He prayed that one day they too get their freedom and be liberated from oppressors.

Talking to Pakistan Observer on this occasion, Chairman of the NPC Mian Muhammad Javed said, highlighted qualities of Quaid-e-Azam’s head and heart and quoted the renowned religious scholar of Quaid’s times, Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani who once replying to a question as why he was standing with Quaid, had said, “I have found Quaid-e-Azam a true and trustworthy man.”

“Quaid-e-Azam he said, gave us independence and now it is our duty to protect it and transfer it to our future generation as a golden legacy left by Quaid and his companions of the Pakistan Movement.”

He asked the audience not only to pray for Quaid-e-Azam but also for his companions and followers.
