Ay Quaid Bohat Sharminda Hain
The great legend we have forgotten completely. To utter disappointment we are also getting rid of even his presence in our state buildings. Here found the speech given by QUAID on the inauguration of Pakistan assembly
Speech on the inauguration of the Pakistan Constituent Assembly at Karachi: August 14, 1947
Your Excellency. I thank His Majesty the King on behalf of the Pakistan Constituent Assembly and myself for his gracious message. I know great responsibilities lie ahead, and I naturally reciprocate his sentiments and we are grateful for his assurance of sympathy and support, and I hope that you will communicate to His Majesty our assurance of goodwill and friendship for the British nation and himself as the Crown head of the British.
I thank you for your expressions of goodwill and good wishes for the future of Pakistan. It will be our constant endeavor to work for the welfare and well-being of all the communities in Pakistan, and I hope that everyone would be inspired by the idea of public service, and they will be imbued with the spirit of co-operation and will excel in their political and civic virtues which go to make a great nation and help to advance its greatness.
I once more thank you and Lady Mountbatten for your kindness and good wishes. Yes, we are parting as friends and sincerely hope that we shall remain friends.
I wish to emphasize that we appreciate the spirit in which those in the Government service at present and in the Armed Forces and others have so willingly and ungrudgingly volunteered themselves provisionally to serve Pakistan. As servants of Pakistan we shall make them happy and they will be treated equally with our nationals. The tolerance and goodwill that great Emperor Akbar showed to all the non-Muslims is not of recent origin. It dates back thirteen centuries ago when our Prophet (Peace be upon him) not only by words but by deeds treated the Jews and Christians, after he had conquered them, with the utmost tolerance and regard and respect for their faith and beliefs. The whole history of Muslims, wherever they ruled, is replete with those humane and great principles which should be followed and practiced.
Finally, I thank you for your good wishes for Pakistan, and I assure you that we shall not be wanting in friendly spirit with our neighbors and with all nations of the world.
Dear Quaid, hum bohat sharminda hain. I feel ashamed of whatever negligence I have committed and made my homeland ill-place to live. I am sorry that I was not able to make your Pakistan, my Pakistan. I was not able to work like you want me to work. I was not able to love Pakistan like you wanted me to. At the end, I request ALLAH and his MESSENGER that please we want 1948 ka Pakistan. Give us back the same level of dignity, enthusiasm and faithfulness of 1948. Please please ……..
