President's Message

Filed on March 23, 2021
Dr Arif Alvi President Islamic Republic of Pakistan

On this Pakistan Day, we pay homage to the founding fathers of Pakistan whose services and sacrifices led to the creation of a separate homeland for the Muslims of the sub-continent. Today, we reaffirm our resolve to make Pakistan an economically stronger and prosperous country.

On this historic day, we vow to continue our struggle to make our society humane, inclusive and tolerant to other minorities residing in Pakistan. We also pledge to uphold democratic values, rule of law and the Islamic way of life in our country as envisioned by our founding fathers.

On this day, we must also remember our Kashmiri brethren who have been subjugated for over seven decades. We pledge our commitment to continue to support Kashmiris in their just struggle for their right to self-determination. The key to durable peace in South Asia is the resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant United Nations Security Council Resolutions.

Today, we also salute our heroes, particularly the health workers and other concerned agencies, who played a great role in containing Covid-19 and providing healthcare to the people in the hour of need. We laud our health professionals for their untiring efforts who selflessly served the nation during the crisis. I urge my fellow countrymen to follow all Standard Operating Procedures concerning Covid-19 so as to overcome the third wave of the pandemic. I am sure that with unity, faith and discipline we can overcome any challenge that comes our way. May Allah be with us all.

 

Pakistan Paindabad!
