Pakistan came in to being on August 14 after the constant hard work of Quaid-e-Azam Mhammad Ali Jinnah. August 14 is considered as blessed day for all Pakistanis. We adorn our houses, streets, shops, schools, colleges, universities and offices with flags, posters, lights and other decorative materials. Every patriotic Pakistani wears green and white dresses that represent the colours of our flag. But sadly, the trend of one-wheeling has been started in many parts of Pakistan. Every year, several riders lose their lives whiledoing this. Is this the way to give respect to our flag?
I humbly request the young generation of my beloved country to learn respect for their country and nation. Celebrating August 14 is enough. We have to deliver the actual lesson behind our independence.
Karachi, August 13.
