Pakistan- A name that alone can race the hearts of million Pakistanis. A home to 197 Million people, The beat of 197 Million hearts, and the love of everyone’s Life!
The love and the zeal we feel about our homeland is very natural, ever since we are born, this land Shelters us and then after we die this land cradles us inside!
As today’s date, 23rd March, is a little more special to us all because it is a remarkable day in the history, Pakistan Resolution was passed in 23rd March 1940. Pakistan was established as Islamic Republic in 23rd March 1956.
The struggle for a separate homeland started from 1857 which started with a rebellion and then turned into a war, the Muslims were ruled by tyrant and unjust heads, many of them were killed and punished everyday.
Leaders such as Sir Syed Ahmed Khan worked tirelessly for the political, social and economic uplifting of Muslims, Allama Muhammad Iqbal, a poet and philosopher, put forward the ideal of Muslims being a separate nation. Iqbal is accredited for weaving the Two-Nation theory, an ideology that eventually made the creation of Pakistan possible, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, also worked day and night for our independence and is the founder of Pakistan!
