LAHORE: Ameer Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq has said that the nation could never forget the sacrifices of the martyrs who laid down their lives while defending the national frontiers.
In a message on Defence Day, Sirajul Haq said that our ancestors had offered huge sacrifices for the establishment of this Muslim state and abandoned their homes and lands to migrate to Pakistan.
The JI chief said that thousands of people were martyred at the time of creation of Pakistan. He said that all those sacrificing their lives for the geographical and ideological frontiers of the country were the heroes of the nation and their heroic deeds could never be forgotten.
Sirajul Haq said the nation would have to defend the country’s ideology besides its geography because nations lived only on the basis of their ideology.
He said the sole objective of the creation of Pakistan was to establish the system given by ‘La Ilaha Illallah’, but unfortunately, during the last seventy years, those ruling the country had not only harmed the geography of the country but also betrayed its ideology due to which the country was facing numerous internal and external threats.
The JI chief said that the PTI government would have to pay special attention to revive the ideological character of the country and highlight its Islamic identity. He said that with the election of the President, the electoral process had been completed and the government should take solid steps to implement its promises to the nation. He said that the nation was keen to see when Prime Minister Imran Khan would start work on his promise to make Pakistan like the Madina state.
