Pakistan is a compound word consisting of the words “Pak” and “Stan”. Pak means pious and Stan means homeland. On 14th August 1947, the world saw a new country named ‘’ ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF PAKISTAN’’ as an independent country on the map of the world. Freedom is a great blessing. It’s why Pakistanis feel this is the greatest day of their year.
On this day, the people of Pakistan pay tribute to the great leaders because of whom Muslims became free forever. Our leaders like Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Sir Ahmad Khan, Liquate Ali Khan, etc struggled a lot to unite Muslims at one aim. Allama Iqbal, our national poet raised the spirit of bravery, and many people overcame martyrdom to gain independence for Pakistan.
In addition, the entire nation enjoys a national holiday on 14th August every year. To commemorate this day, children participate in competitions, and people listen to the national songs. Pakistan is a part of heaven. All kinds of facilities are in Pakistan. Pakistan is geographically strong in the world.
India and Pakistan were the sub-continent before separation. Muslims and Hindu spend their lives together. Muslims controlled almost the entire Indian sub-continent. Mughal Empire controlled the country from the middle of the 1500s to the beginning of the 1700s. Mughal emperors of the Mughal Empire were:
- SHAH JAHAN and
They all six were very intelligent, brave, true Muslims, and great leaders. They changed the face of India with their political and intellectual mind.
The last emperor was BAHADUR SHAH. In his era, the bad day of the Mughal Empire started. British landed in India for the purpose of trade. British entered with the planning to capture the Mughal Empire. The negligence of the Mughal emperor gave the chance to the British. British exiled the BAHADUR SHAH in Rangoon under British control. Bahadur Shah took his last breath in Rangoon.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES OF PAKISTAN
- Setting up of Free Islamic Society
The main objective of the creation of Pakistan was to establish a free Islamic state having its own identity Govt., practicing its own social religious principles, and inviting the Muslims of the world, particularly and others generally to adopt the Islamic ways of life.
- Social & Political Development of Muslims
After the war of Independence in 1857, the social environment was totally changed. The Muslims were scared of the caste system and other discriminations. They could enjoy neither political nor social freedom.
Ideology of Pakistan
‘’ The ideology of Pakistan was the consciousness of the Muslims in the historical perspective of the South Asian sub-continent that they were a separate nation on the basis of Islamic ideology’’
The Ideology of Pakistan and Allama Iqbal
He was the person who for the first time gave the concept of a separate state for the Muslims. A llama made it clear that Muslims have their separate recognition from the Hindus on the basis of religion and culture. Muslims became united for the sake of Muslim society.
After the long struggle, we get PAKISTAN. May God bless our country.
