LAHORE - In the conclusive sitting of the three-day annual Nazaria-i- Pakistan Conference held under the aegis of the Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust at the Aiwan-i- Karkunan-i- Tehreek-i-Pakistan on Sunday with Rafique Tarar in the chair, some resolutions mirroring the aspirations and ambitions of the participants of the conference were presented which were carried unanimously.

Paying glowing tribute to the former NPT chairman late Dr Majid Nizami for his glorious and elevated services during the Pakistan Movement and in the field of journalism through a resolution, the participants of the conference renewed their pledge to continue with zeal and zest the struggle to protect the ideological boundaries of the dear homeland in the light of the guidelines designed by the deceased.

Another resolution saluted the valour, courage and sacrifices offered by the officers and soldiers of the Pakistan Army during their war against terrorism, expressed complete solidarity with their families, and showed satisfaction on the successful progress of the operation “Zarb-i-Azb”.

Registering their vehement condemnation of the incident taking place at the Army Public School, the suicide attack on the Imamia Masjid, Peshawar and all the other terrorist acts, the participants condoled with the bereaved parents through one of the resolutions and demanded of the government to fully concentrate on the implementation of the National Action Plan and take the strictest possible steps against those involved in terrorism without making any distinctions.

A uniform education system throughout the country was also demanded through a resolution.

Terming the commencement of the “Pak-China Economic Corridor Plan” and the decision to mutually celebrate the year 2015 as the “Year of Friendly Exchanges” between the two countries extremely sagacious and wise in the perspective of the growing proximity of the USA to the eternal enemy of Pakistan, India, one of the resolutions commended the role that China has played in making Pakistan self-sufficient in the field of defence and a developed nation in the economic field. Hence, the relations with the loyal, tested and tried friend, China, are to be preferred to those with the enemy in the guise of a friend, America.

In yet another resolution, the participants highly eulogised the lucid and unequivocal stance taken by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on the Kashmir issue on the “Kashmir Solidarity Day” and demanded of the government to refrain from establishing any kind of relations whatsoever with India until a just and equitable resolution of the Kashmir issue.

In another resolution the government was called upon to blacklist those elements on the print and electronic media, who are trying to create mental, intellectual and ideological confusion in the masses, especially the younger generation, by distorting the founding father Quaid-i-Azam Ali Jinnah’s ideas and vision about Pakistan.

In still another resolution, the participants reminded the government of the importance of extending full protection to the minorities, quoting the Father of the Nation who had exhorted us to maintain an attitude reflecting justice, truth, generosity and kindness towards the minorities in the Islamic state. Hence, the government was called upon to leave no stone unturned to create a sense of protection of their religion, faith, life, property and culture.

Another resolution reminded the government that Quaid-i-Azam Ali Jinnah was desirous of seeing the women play an energetic role in national life. It is, therefore, incumbent on the government to give special attention to task of providing opportunities to women to participate in national progress and development.

In yet another resolution, the participants called upon all the political parties of the country to promote an environment of unity and solidarity and refrain from indulging in the personal matters of one another, for the broader interests of the country.

In view of the ongoing energy crisis in the country, the government was called upon through a resolution to complete the Neelam-Jhelum Hydropower Project as soon as possible and start the construction of the Kalabagh Dam forthwith in order to produce cheap electricity.

Another resolution called on the government to frame environment-friendly policies.

On the successful conclusion of the conference a communiqué was also issued.
