Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri’s message on Pakistan Day
In his message on the Pakistan Day being celebrated across the country today, Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that we have transitioned from the struggle for accomplishment of objectives for which Pakistan was created to the one aimed at protecting the motherland because the Pakistan’s Ideology had progressively been rendered weak. He said that the ideology was under severe attacks by the forces of extremism, terrorism, corruption and elitist democracy due to incompetence and compromised character of political class. He said that dangers were posed to territorial and ideological frontiers of the country. He said that the sense of deprivation felt by the smaller provinces was on the increase and the country was raging in the fires of terrorism, inflation, inflation, unemployment and energy deficits.
Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the nation suffered from insecurity and despondency because the unreal and unrepresentative leaders that came after the demise of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah deviated from his vision and violated the spirit of Pakistan’s Ideology. He said that long-term policies were not formulated. He said that it was unfortunate that the nuclear status of the country, a matter of pride otherwise, had become its weakness and posed a threat due to weak political system and collapsing economy. He said that this sorry state of affairs in which the country was stuck up was owed to incompetence of political leaderships and lack of compliance with law and the Constitution. He said that Pakistan needed a leadership that worked tirelessly to implement the vision of the Quaid and fulfill the dream of Allama Dr Muhammad Iqbal.
Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that Quaid-e-Azam declared the Holy Quran as the basis of Pakistan’s Constitution but added in the same breath that it was regrettable that the worst human rights violations were being committed in the country never witnessed before in history of 65 years.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that saving Pakistan from breaking down and handing over a stronger and prosperous country to the next generation was his mission and his commitment to this mission was unwavering. He said that there was a clash between his vision and traditional politics. He said that it explained why he launched a peaceful struggle against exploitative and corrupt political system, which was in vogue for last 65 years. He said that the struggle would surely reach its destination and achieve its objectives.
Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that a politician planned for perpetuating his politics while a leader and a statesman planned for the succeeding generations and their bright future. He said that elections under the current obsolete electoral system would be meaningless and PAT decided to boycott them, for it did not see change happening through this process. He said that PAT would stage peaceful sit-ins as per democratic traditions near polling stations on the polling day to register its disapproval of the electoral system.
