ISLAMABAD, July 9 (TNS): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has urged the young generation of Pakistan, particularly Pakistani women, to rekindle the spirit of comradeship, dedication and reinforcement for the development of Pakistan as manifested through the life-long struggle of Madr-e-Millat Fatima Jinnah.
“Today’s Pakistan provides women with equal opportunities of all sorts and an enabling environment to serve the motherland in every field. Let’s recommit ourselves, men and women, to achieving a Pakistan, envisioned by our founding father,” PM office media wing in a press release on Sunday quoted the prime minister as saying.
The prime minister said today, as they commemorate the 50th anniversary of Madr-e-Millat Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah, they must reflect on the great struggle the Muslim women of the Indian subcontinent undertook. The way Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah stood beside her brother Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah during the entire freedom movement, was a great example of perseverance and steadfastness, he added.
He said from her struggle, lessons of sacrifice, unconditional support for a noble cause and most important of all, courage to face odds, could be drawn.
