In their separate messages on the occasion, they said it is an occasion to recall and pledge for the nation to follow his message of self-awareness and self-esteem.

They said that Muslims of the Sub-continent would always remain indebted to the great visionary leader for his invaluable services.

The President and Prime Minister urged the nation to pledge on this day to make even greater efforts for the fulfilment of the dream of our forefathers and move forward according to the teachings of Allama Iqbal for the greater good of our society and our beloved homeland.
