KARACHI (PPI) - Politics should not be a source of making money for politicians, but a medium to serve people, said speakers of a Hamdard Naunehal Assembly Karachi Chapter. The moot was held here to commemorate the death anniversaries of Liaquat Ali Khan and Hakim Mohammad Said who were martyred, respectively, on 16th October 1951 and 17th October 1998. The function comprised of recitation from Holy Quran, Naat Speeches, Poetic Tributes, Tableau and Dua-e-Saeed. Speaking on the occasion, the chief guest and prominent social worker Javed Jabbar said that politics could be a best way of service to the nation and humanity. Liaquat Ali Khan, Hakim Said and Jinnah proved it so by their actions and deeds. When Liaquat Ali Khan died he had only Rs350 in his bank account. Politics should not be a source of making money, he added. He said that Hakim had dedicated whatever he had to the welfare of people, if he wanted he could give some money for the welfare work as a business man. I learnt the lesson of human equality from Hakim Said who did not hesitate for a moment to accept my invitation to come to a poor and remote area of Sindh, he said, adding that Hakim Said always gave importance to the minorities according to the teachings of Islam that rights of non-Muslims be respected like rights of Muslims. Paying great tribute to Liaquat Ali Khan and Hakim Said he said that both were unusual and amazing personalities, although they were related with different periods of time, but they have somehow same character and many common qualities of sincerity, national thinking and sincere services to the nation. They looked like twin brothers and both rendered great services to the country and sacrificed their lives for the sake of Pakistan, he added. He said that Liaquat Ali Khan had supported and took care of Pakistan in a very difficult phase of its history. He said that we should not be disappointed over the situation of the country and be hopeful and optimistic as these two great persons. Liaquat Ali Khan and Hakim Said never wanted us to become disappointed. Instead of looking at our leaders every one among us should try to do something good for the betterment of the nation. No Masiha (emancipator) and no other Jinnah will now come, therefore, we should have to change our condition ourselves as God has bestowed us with abilities and qualities, he said. Praising the forum of Hamdard Naunehal Assembly he said that these children are the hope for the better future of Pakistan. He congratulated Ms Sadia Rashid for running such a good and useful forum for the children. Ms Sadia Rashid, President Hamdard Foundation Pakistan, while addressing the gathering of children said that homeland was not only the name of the land but the people who made it a great land and country by working together with unity and harmony. She lamented that we as a nation did not come up to this standard of nation building. Freedom and development of a nation need sacrifices and everyone has to render them as our elders gave tremendous sacrifices for attaining and preserving the freedom, she added. She said that the month of October is a sign of sacrifice when Liaquat Ali Khan and Hakim Said sacrificed their lives for the country. Hakim Said was born to serve the people and the country. He spoke truth at the peril of his life for the sake of the country. There were many bright examples of struggle in his life and if they were followed by us, we could be able to build a strong and prosperous Pakistan, she added. Hakim Said had done a lot of work for the development of the children. For this purpose he established schools, colleges and Hamdard villages. He also wrote books and travelogues for children and brought a children magazine, Hamdard Naunehal for their mental training and development, she mentioned. Child speakers Osama Aijaz, Kehkashan Anjum, Qirat Abdul Majid, Shahbaz Ali, Mohammad Mairaj Hassan, Ghinwa Shahid and Mohammad Khizar Khan also spoke and paid great tribute to Liaquat Ali Khan and Hakim Said.
