14th August is the most valuable day in the history of Pakistan. This was the day when as a
nation we got out separate identity. Muslim ruled the subcontinent before the British
penetration and suffered due to the 1857 uprising against the British East India Company.
The Indian National Congress was formed in 1885, which later on became British India’s
largest political party. Major Muslim political leaders, including Muhammad Ali Jinnah, were
members of the Indian National Congress and worked towards Hindu-Muslim unity and
India’s independence. Strong Hindu nationalism gave birth to the Two Nation Theory, an
ideology that become the basis for Pakistan’s creation. In 1940 the Pakistan Resolution was
passed in Lahore demanding greater Muslim autonomy in British India.
The Pakistan Movement, leaded by Muhammad Ali Jinnah, resulted in creating a Muslim
state. Pakistan gained independence from the British rule on August 14, 1947. At its birth,
Pakistan had two parts commonly referred to as East and West Pakistan. In 1971 East
Pakistan parted from West Pakistan and became Bangladesh.
Being a Pakistani every year we celebrate this day with great zeal. It was the day when

Muslim of subcontinent got the blessing of the independence and Pakistan was created as a
separate nation on the world map. The struggle for separate nation was not that easy as
millions of Muslims scarified their life and wealth for creation of Pakistan.
“With faith, discipline and selfless” devotion to duty there is nothing worthwhile you can’t
achieve. “Quaid-e-Azam At this day we got our own identity and our own values we got our name and respect as free nation. On this auspicious day we should never forget the sacrifices of our hero’s. Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Allama Iqbal, Sir Syed Ahmed Khan and Syed Ameer Ali who work diligently for the sake of Independent state.
At this Independence Day we should make a pledge with our selves that we will work whole
heartedly and with complete devolution for the development of our country and always keep this question in mind, how and why we attained this separate state? And we should remember our Kashmiris brothers and sisters who are fighting to achieve the right of self-determination. We want to give the world message that Kashmiris are not alone and we will fight with till our last breath.
