PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has congratulated the nation on the 73rd Independence Day of the country. He said that Pakistan came into being to stay forever and those wanting to see it undermined and weak will be disappointed in their nefarious designs. He said that 210 people are the guarantor of its power, prosperity, and protection. He prayed to Allah Almighty to enable Muslims to fight their challenges and overcome the hardships.
A very happy #IndependenceDay to the people of Pakistan. This country was made to live forever and the real strength it derives is from its people. On this day, I pray that may Allah Almighty protect our motherland and entire Muslim Ummah and make their trails easy on them.— Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri (@TahirulQadri) August 14, 2019
