He noted that this year Quaid-e-Azam's birthday was celebrated (on December 25) in a befitting manner as fireworks were set off in Islamabad, presenting a feast of colors and light.”
The minister stressed that it was the vision of Quaid-e-Azam and the national poet Allama Mohammed Iqbal to establish an Islamic welfare state where Muslims and minorities could live freely and peacefully irrespective of their caste and creed.
The minister said Quaid-e-Azam made clear his vision of Pakistan in his three major speeches-- in the Constituent Assembly, in his addresses to the Army officers and the government officials.
He maintained that both Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal were modern, progressive and visionary leaders who realised in advance what would happen to Muslims and other minorities in the future.
Secretary Information and Broadcasting Shahera Shahid and senior officers of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and attached departments were also present on the occasion. The exhibition, which will continue for some days, showcases life of the Quaid-e-Azam and key moments of his life in pictures.
