PM Imran's Message
Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Pakistanis could achieve high distinction in comity of the nations by understanding the concept of ‘Shaheen’ and philosophy of ‘Khudi’ of Dr Allama Muhammad Iqbal and adopting it in practical life.
To understand Iqbal’s vision, one should go through his address to Annual Session of All-India Muslim League on Nov 29, 1930 when he first time presented Two-Nation Theory. He had dreamt of a separate homeland for the Muslims of the sub-continent, and his dream was converted into reality by Quaid-i-Azam who had spearheaded the Pakistan movement.
