LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that it is unfortunate that we cannot establish institutions to promote the Pakistan Ideology. We have built bridges, roads and airports in the name of Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal but no institution has been made yet to advance their thoughts and teachings. He expressed these views while addressing the foundation stone laying ceremony of Aiwan-e-Quaid-e-Azam held under the auspices of Nazria-e-Pakistan Trust here on Saturday. The ceremony was presided over by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani. The chief minister said Majid Nizami is considered among the most revered personalities of Pakistan. In the days of dictatorship, he upheld the banner of freedom of media and promoted Quaid and Iqbals thought through Nazria Pakistan Trust. Shahbaz also remembered Shaheed Ghulam Haider Wyne who initiated the Nazria Pakistan Trust for the promotion of Pakistan ideology. He said Shaheeds soul would be happy in paradise on this day. Shahbaz said the turmoil Pakistan was facing today could be overcome by the Quaids thought - good character, objectivity, faith and hard work. The solution lies in self-reliance, he said, adding that we have to protect our integrity and freedom, give respect to the Parliament, and shun dictatorship and work for strengthening democracy. He said without strengthening democracy and democratic institutions, the demands of independence of Pakistan cannot be fulfilled. He said dictatorship and one-person rule had gone away, adding that the people had to make a number of sacrifices for restoration of democracy and if we did not fulfill our responsibilities and did not play our effective role for the strengthening of democracy then God forbid the sacrifices made for the democracy can go waste. He said that the success of nations lies in the bold character of the people instead of resources. He said that billions of dollars were received during the eight years of dictatorship in Pakistan, but only a special segment benefited from it and these dollars failed to bring happiness in the lives of poor and destitute of the country. He said that we would have to bury our differences to close all doors to the dictatorship and have to restore the prestige of Parliament. He said that we would have to hold accountable those who violated both the constitution and their oath for the accomplishment of their personal gains. While referring to his recent visit to Iran, the chief minister said that by facing international sanctions in a manly and dignified manner, the people of Iran have proved that they are the true followers of Allama Iqbal. He said that today was a historic day in the sense that we had gathered to lay the foundation stone of such an institution of national importance the aim of which was to build the ideology of coming generations in the light of ideology of Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal. Shahbaz said that we had to get rid of foreign aid for protection of our independence, adding that our politics cannot become independent till our economy is dependent upon others. Majid Nizami and Dr Javed Iqbal awarded Gold Medal to Yousuf Raza Gilani named after Syed Alamdar Hussain Gilani, father of the prime minister and close associate of the Quaid and Pakistan Movement worker. Shields were also given to the Punjab governor and chief minister as well as to Jamaat-i-Islami Amir Syed Munawar Hassan. The ceremony was rounded off with the prayers led by Syed Munawar Hassan. A large number of Pakistan Movement workers, gold medalists, ministers, MNAs, MPAs and elite of the City attended the ceremony. Prof Sajid Mir of Jamiat Ahle Hadith was also present.
