Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Sunday released a special song to pay tribute to Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah as nation observed his 146th birth anniversary. The video of patriotic song features a message of the founder of Pakistan about the importance of air force. “A country without a strong Air Force is at the mercy of any aggressor. Pakistan must build up its own Air Force as quickly as possible. It must be an efficient Air Force, Second to None,” reads the Quaid’s message.
Earlier in the day, a spectacular change of guard ceremony was held at the Mazar-e-Quaid where Pakistan Military Academy Kakul assumed the ceremonial guard duty from Pakistan Air Force cadet guards. Major General Umar Aziz was the chief guest on the occasion. Meanwhile, President Dr Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in their separate messages in connection with birth anniversary of Quaid-e-Azam, have urged the nation to follow the guiding principles of the father of the nation to ensure progress and prosperity of the country. They expressed gratitude to Quaid-e-Azam for carving out a separate homeland for Muslims of the sub-continent where they are free to realize their dreams.—INP
