She said that the entire system of Pakistan should be run in Urdu, the national language of Pakistan, as the Quaid-e-Azam had said, and under Article 251 of the Constitution of Pakistan, Urdu should be used in 25 years. It was guaranteed to be made the official language.

Director of Arts Council Waqar Ahmed said that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, under the philosophy of Allama Iqbal’s self-reliance, the Muslims of India were spared the blessing of freedom in a very short period of time.
