LAHORE - One of the leading workers of the historic Pakistan Movement, Pakistan's Daily The Nation's Editor-in-Chief and Nazria Pakistan Trust (NPT) Chairman Majid Nizami has condemned the statement of PML-N leader Nawaz (not so) Sharif wherein he has termed the gods and culture of Indians the same as that of Pakistanis. He said Pakistan was achieved on the basis of Two-Nations Theory and questioned how the culture of two nations could be the same. “We worship one God and Indians believe in idols and their gods have five heads”. he added.
He was addressing a ceremony held in connection with 65th Independence Day of Pakistan at NPT on Sunday. The ceremony was also addressed by NPT Vice Chairman Dr Rafique Ahmad, grandson of Allama Muhammad Iqbal Walid Iqbal, Col (r) Amjad Hussain, and activists of Pakistan Movement. Mr Nizami in his address said that by issuing such statement, Nawaz has achieved nothing but only damaged his vote bank and it was very surprising for him (Nizami). He said that if Nawaz had such soft corner for Hindus he should shift his Jati Umrah residence to Amritsar and then he would be in better position to differentiate the Jati Umrah of Raiwind and Amritsar. He said Nawaz also mentioned line between the two countries, Mr Nizami questioned the PML-N leader whether he wanted to remove this division line. He said Nawaz was dreaming of being alternate leader of Pakistan and after issuance of such statement, one can pray for him that may Almighty Allah grant him wisdom.
Nizami said that once he was invited by Khawaja Saad Rafique to attend PML-N function where leaguers chanted slogans Quaid-e-Azam Saani Mian Nawaz Sharif. “I was also asked to speak on the occasion. I said in my speech that Nawaz first joined Tehreek-e-Istaqlal Party and now PML-N was his second Party, what to say of Quaid-e-Azam Saani. May Allah make Nawaz true follower of Quaid-e-Azam”. Earlier Dr Rafique Ahmad in his welcome address said that Majid Nizami was less recognised in the different circles due to Nawa-i-Waqt and more recognition was due to his role in promotion of objectives of Pakistan Movement. He led all his life confronting with dictators and never compromised on democracy in the country, he added. He said that after a successful completion of Aiwan-e-Iqbal, now Majid Nizami was struggling for the construction of Aiwan-e-Quaid-e-Azam. Ground-breaking ceremony of this Aiwan would be held on coming Friday. It would be a state-of-art centre with best facilities of education, research, and training.
Col (r) Amjad Hussain also paid rich tributes to Hameed Nizami and lauded the services of Majid Nizami rendered for the promotion of democracy in the country. He said Majid Nizami is a brave man who despite passing through three bypass operations was struggling for the promotion of Two-Nations Theory. Waleed Iqbal in his address said, we should promote the concepts of Quaid-e-Azam and also treat well minorities in our country. Activists of Pakistan Movement were also present on this occasion including Col (r) Ikran Ullah, Muhammad Yousaf Ghazi, Ghulam Jaffar Salaar and others. They were garlanded and also asked to share their experiences with the audience.
