Islamabad, March 23 (KMS): President Dr Arif Alvi has said that the present situation of Muslims in India and in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir proves that the Muslim leadership of the sub-continent was justified in its demand for a separate homeland for the Muslims.
According to Kashmir Media Service, President Arif Alvi said this in his message to the nation on Pakistan Day, today.
He said the persecution of minorities, especially the Muslims in India, the rising wave of Hindutva and violence against Muslims, violation of human rights, and brutalities being committed by the Indian forces in IIOJK proved that the Muslim leadership of that time made a prudent decision.
He felicitated the entire Pakistani nation on the occasion of Pakistan Day and said it was on this day in 1940 that Muslims of the sub-continent passed the Pakistan Resolution and made the demand for a separate homeland where they could freely lead their lives in accordance with Islamic ideals.
“Today, we pay tribute to the founding fathers of our nation whose struggles and sacrifices led to the creation of Pakistan,” he said.
He expressed confidence that Pakistan has the ability to overcome the challenges it faced today and said that working with unity, faith, and discipline would make the country strong and prosperous.
