Sat 23 Mar 2024 | 01:47 PM

On the occasion of Pakistan Day, Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif extends heartfelt greetings to Pakistanis worldwide, marking the significant day of March 23, 1940, when the Lahore Resolution set the foundation for the creation of Pakistan. This historic day celebrated the demand for a separate homeland for Muslims in South Asia, leading to the establishment of Pakistan on August 14, 1947.

Reflecting on the sacrifices of the nation's forefathers and the migration of millions of Muslims to the newly formed state, Prime Minister Sharif acknowledges the unprecedented challenges faced by Pakistan at its inception. Despite these hurdles, under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Pakistan overcame obstacles to lay down the foundations of an independent democratic state.

In the recent general elections held on February 8, the Pakistani people elected their representatives, forming new governments at both federal and provincial levels. Prime Minister Sharif admits the nation currently faces several challenges, including inflation, unemployment, and terrorism. However, he remains optimistic about Pakistan's resilience and is committed to implementing policy reforms aimed at economic recovery and prosperity.

On this momentous day, the Prime Minister urges all Pakistanis to embody the spirit of their founding fathers and strive towards making Pakistan a beacon of peace, progress, and stability. He emphasizes the importance of unity and shared values in overcoming differences and shaping a promising future for the nation.

As Pakistan commemorates this historic day, the call for economic stability and the resolve to face challenges head-on reflects the nation's enduring spirit and dedication to progress.
