Quaid-i-Azam’s State-concept stands for transparency, Islamic socio-eco Justice and democracy – Muhammad Farooq Rehmani
Islamabad 13 Aug, 2012: Chairman of the Jammu and Kashmir People’s Freedom League, Muhammad Farooq Rehmani, while congratulating the government and the people of Pakistan on the 65th independence day anniversary, has paid glowing tributes to millions of Muslims, who achieved martyrdom for a separate homeland of Muslims, or suffered migration for the newly-created state, to live a life of honor and dignity according to their culture and moral and social values. He eulogized the dynamic leadership of Quaid-i-Azam, Muhammad Ali Jinnah who sailed the ship of Pakistan movement with his firm belief in Allah and His guidance, through hostile winds and storms, successfully to the destination. Quaid’s unmatched statesmanship in India led millions of people to the “promised land”, where in his own words, “People may say what they like and talk as they like.”
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani admired intellectual endeavors and sacrifices of great Muslim thinkers, politicians, Islamic Jurists and scholars, who were torch-bearers of the ideology of Pakistan in 1940s, and had advanced support to the ideology of a separate home land for Muslims of the sub-continent.
He said, “But, Pakistan in the 21st century is in turmoil on all fronts and its borders are not safe; and the present generation has inherited conflicts, political instability and economic exploitation. But Pakistan can overcome all these problems and conflicts by ensuring democracy, rule of law, freedom from exploitation and creation of a just economic and social order, and an independent and nation-backed foreign policy, as envisioned by Quaid-i-Azam.”
Muhammad Farooq Rehmani said, “Kashmir is a core issue of the state, and the right of self-determination shouldn’t be compromised for simply trade with India. It is a utopian thought of some politicians and academicians that Pakistan could be safe and secure by withdrawing support to Kashmir. In fact, the leadership of the country should keep in mind the geo-political importance of Kashmir, besides the last words of Quaid-i-Azam about the UN Commission on Kashmir.”
