WHERE IS JINNAH’S PAKISTAN?

Jinnah envisaged a country that would foster human rights, women’s rights, minority rights and the rule of law. During the short period he was governor general of Pakistan he established the importance of showing extra consideration to minorities.

“You are free – You are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place of worship in this State of Pakistan.  You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the state…  We are starting in the days when there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another, no discrimination between one caste and creed. We are starting with this fundamental principle that we are all citizens and equal of one state.

“Now if we want to make this great state of Pakistan happy and prosperous we should wholly and solely concentrate on the well being of the people and especially of the masses and the poor. If you will work in co-operation, forgetting the past, burying the hatchet, you are bound to succeed.”
