Minority rights and religious freedom is exactly according to teachings of Islam. Quaid-i-Azam wanted for Islamic system in Pakistan in which all citizens are given equal rights and for this purpose the Medina Charter was role model for him. He further said that in history Pakistan is second Islamic ideological state after Medina and there exist similarities between two in many ways.

In his 11 August speech he renewed the Medina Charter. Today our enemy has entangled us in internal anarchy but our youth is aware of it and Insha Allah Pakistan will exist till end.

There is no change possible in the constitution of Allah described in Holly Quran. To implement it practically we needed a state and Iqbal saw dream for it while Quaid with courage and faith fulfilled. Allah Almighty finally bestowed upon us Pakistan. When enemy powers planned to destroy us, we got atomic power by the efforts of Dr. A Q Khan. Our enemy cannot destroy us because Pakistan came into being with Allah Almighty’s orders and people looking to harm Pakistan will face crushing humiliation.

Relation between Pakistan and Lailat-ul-Qadr is not without reason but full of Hikmat that Pakistan came into being on that day on which Allah Almighty sent the constitution. Freedom is blessing and to attain it we have given great sacrifices. To save it from destruction we must follow Holly Quran strongly. Ramadan and Lailat-ul-Qadr create Taqwa which if come in public and leadership, our problems can be solved and angels can come for our assistance.

Allah Almighty accepts prayers on the night of 27th Ramadan and we were bestowed with Pakistan on this occasion which is result of prayers of Muslims of subcontinent. Pride, anger and revenge are not liked by Allah Almighty and we lost half gift just after 24 years due to these facts whereas Allah said that enter in Islam completely. At that time Indra Gandhi said that we have taken revenge of 1000 years rule of Muslims in subcontinent. Have we learnt lesson from that incident? We have to do accountability of ourselves and take proper care of Allah’s gift i. e. Pakistan.

He commended Sahibzada Sultan Ahmad Ali for promoting ideology of Pakistan and for strengthening foundation of Pakistan. He said that at the time of formation of Pakistan there was only one shop of Muslim in center of Lahore Anarkali. After formation of Pakistan we also got economic freedom. Today we are facing problems despite of being Atomic Power. It is due to division among us. By eliminating linguistic, regional and sectarian distinctions we can strengthen Pakistan. We have to tell non-Muslims and Jews that our Atomic Bomb is not for aggression but for defense purpose. We have to strengthen Pakistan by evolving brotherhood and love among ourselves.

Chairman MUSLIM Institute

Concerns are shown regarding minority rights in Pakistan at international level. Detractors of the same need to study 11th August speech of Quaid and Medina Charter. Medina Charter was first written charter of Islam and Quaid’s 11th August speech was first speech regarding legislation and both ensure complete rights of minorities. Rightists call Quaid as Islamic and leftists consider him secular. It is in fact balance of Quaid’s personality. He said that one cannot talk against holocaust in Europe; we should work against blasphemous actions on similar lines. All atomic powers in world should eliminate atomic bombs but if they do not do it, we should also not do it. Our bomb is for balance of power and our nuclear technology is for power generation. He said that our conflict with Zionists is not due to religion but for illegal status of Israel that is due to their wrong and cruel stance. Most of the Jews in America are against the existence of Israel. We have removed name of Junagarh from maps of occupied parts. The people who have given sacrifice for Pakistan should be given respect and remembered. He further said that the 27 Ramadan should be celebrated as Pakistan day on national level.
