History apprises us that the nations who go through evolution, progress and prosperity, were consistent in their hard work, courageous in the face of hardships and persistent in the pursuit of peace. The Pakistan Nation is one of them. How brave, resilient and stalwart the Pakistani nation is! Whether it is war, terrorism, sectarian violence, religious extremism, killing, instability, disorder, unrest or whether it happens to be the ravages of Nature - flood, earthquake, etc. The Nation’s inhabitants will survive, their resolve is still strengthened and will not surrender their unending services to the cause of stability, peace, law and order and national interests of this majestic land.
