Lahore - A delegation of officers from home and friendly countries undergoing training at the Pakistan Navy War College of Lahore visited Aiwan-i-Karkunan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan.

They saw the picture gallery showcasing the rare photographs of the Pakistan Movement workers and veterans.

Later, a special sitting was held to introduce the Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust to them. NPT Secretary Shahid Rasheed conducted the proceedings. Vice Chairman Prof. Dr Rafique Ahmad briefed the visiting dignitaries about the NPT, saying the trust defended the ideological frontiers of the country like the prestigious Pakistan Navy defended its sea-fronts.

Established in 1992, the trust publishes the journals “Nazaria-i-Pakistan” and “Honehar” besides 200 small publications, it was briefed.

Captain Suhail observed that it was reassuring to meet the people who participated in the independence struggle and witnessed the creation of Pakistan.

There are some fifth-columnists who question the establishment of Pakistan and the veracity of the two-nation theory. The relevance of the two-nation theory never came to an end. In fact, it has re-emerged with full force, Captain Suhail observed.

Shahid Rasheed referred to the confession of the Indian Prime Minister NarendraModi that the Mukti Bahini had been raised by India to influence the separation of East Pakistan.

He observed that the only way to forge ahead was to develop a national consensus and evolve a common outlook on past events. He extended an invitation to the Pak Navy authorities to send their representatives to acquaint the members of the new generation with their prestigious institution so that those with the requisite talent and faculties may serve the nation by joining the Pak Navy.
