Lahore: Former Chief Justice(r) of the Federal Shariah Court Mian Mehboob Ahmad expressed that the two-nation theory was the foundation of Pakistan and the survival of the country depends upon it. Referring to the Quaid-i-Azam he remarked that we must beware of Hindus and shun the error of regarding them as friends.
While addressing a ceremony at the Aiwan-i-Karkunaan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan in connection with the Independence Day Celebrations Chief Justice(r) Mian Mehboob Ahmad observed that the celebrations held on the first Independence Day combined emotions with purposefulness. Now the second ingredient i.e., purposefulness is vanishing, which is not a good omen for the future of the country. He said that by purposefulness he meant the remembrance of the two-nation theory that goes to make the rationale of Pakistan. By making East Pakistan seceded from West Pakistan, the Hindus failed to defeat this theory, which is evident from the fact that Bangladesh has very much retained its Islamic identity.
He highlighted the supreme importance of tolerance and humility in the Islamic teachings. The Quaid-i-Azam, following in the footsteps of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), time and again brought out the importance of knowledge. It is tragic to see it being neglected so mercilessly. Media must play its role in mobilizing the nation, he remarked.
