Waving Flags On Independence Day Won’t Help Us Grow!By Syed Hassam Ahmed • Aug 4th, 2012 • Category: Politics • 6 Comments
The enthusiasm and interest begins to grow among the youth and the children as the date 14th August, the Independence Day of Pakistan comes closer. The business of making National flags and the trend of waving these flags on the roofs, roads and streets is a common practice these days.
However, we as a Nation have forgotten the actual motto behind the creation of Pakistan which was solely and unquestionably the implementation of Islamic laws and establishing a true Islamic state in this part of land, for which hundreds and thousands of immigrants gave their lives.
The goal behind its creation is still evasive and we have to move for that now or the water will surpass the maximum level.
Till today, we have been celebrating Independence Day as a lost holiday. In order to make it worthy, we ought to initiate some rational and practical steps instead of waving and decorating the houses with flags. Posting greeting messages on Facebook and Twitter surely won’t do anything for us.
