Prime Minister's Message

Imran Khan Prime Minister Islamic Republic of Pakistan

March 23, 1940, was a momentous occasion when the Muslims of the sub-continent decided to establish a separate homeland to free themselves from the shackles of oppression and slavery.

Today, we pay tribute to the Father of the Nation and all the leaders of the independence movement who united the Muslims of British India and struggled for the creation of a free and independent Muslim State. The struggle culminated with the emergence of Pakistan on the world map on August 14, 1947.

While commemorating this day, we need to adhere to the principles of Unity, Faith and Discipline given by Quid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Our vision is to transform Pakistan into a truly democratic welfare state, on the model of Riyasat-e-Madina.

Our great nation has successfully overcome challenges of immense magnitude in the past through unity and resilience. Today, we need to remain strong to face the pandemic that has engulfed the entire world. InshaAllah, we will succeed in these testing times.

Today, let us renew our commitment to make Pakistan a humane, progressive and prosperous state akin to Riasat-e-Madina based on rule of law, meritocracy, egalitarianism and compassion. May Almighty Allah grant us the strength to remain steadfast during all testing times.


Pakistan Paindabad!
