Mustafa Ali Hamdani announces at the Lahore Radio Station, “This is Pakistan Broadcasting Service. Now you’ll hear recitation from the Holy Quran”
Many people across the sub-continent cried wth joy as they heard those words…
“Do not be overwhelmed by the enormity of the task. There are many examples, in the history, of young nations building themselves up by sheer determination and force of character. You have to develop the spirit of mujahids, you are a nation whose history is full with tales of heroism and bravery. Live up to your traditions and add to another chapter of glory.”
—Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Happy 14th August!
May Pakistan rise and prosper…
