ISLAMABAD(Online)-President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani have reiterated that they will continue to struggle for the vision of Quaid-e-Azam for achieving the goal of a Federal and democratic polity that is based on egalitarianism and social justice for all. In his message on occasion of Quaid-e-Azams 62nd death anniversary, President said the best way to pay homage to the Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah is to strive for achieving the objectives for which Pakistan was created as a separate independent homeland for the Muslims of the Sub-Continent. 'Pakistan was to be a country where the principles of democracy, Constitutionalism and egalitarianism would reign supreme and where there would be social justice and economic opportunities for all as propounded by the Quaid throughout his life. The best way to pay homage to the Quaid therefore is to reiterate our adherence to these principles, Zardari added. 'For ensuring democracy we must defeat the militants who are seeking to impose their own political agenda on the people through gun and bullets, he said. For ensuring Constitutionalism we must ensure that Constitution is given only be the elected representatives of the people and not imposed on the people by anyone else, he added. 'For ensuring egalitarianism, social justice and opportunities of all we must immediately rehabilitate and reconstruct the millions of lives that have been devastated by the floods throughout the country, he said. Paying homage to the innumerable people who made huge sacrifices and to all the martyrs who laid their lives first for the creation of Pakistan and secondly for keeping it as a democratic polity, he also paid homage to the resilience and courage of the people with which they have endured and faced the vagaries of devastating floods. Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani in his message said nature had gifted Quaid-e-Azam with a giants strength so far as his determination was concerned to accomplish tasks that he set before him. His political acumen, his vision and will, his capacity to handle delicate and grave situations were put to the severest test, and his phenomenal success dazzled the eyes of friends and foe alike, he said. He said the best tribute which we can pay to the Father of the Nation is allegiance to principles which he espoused vigorously and the values which he promoted consistently in his career. His death anniversary calls for reappraisal of the situation and a solid commitment to complete Quaids mission of consolidating Pakistan and ensuring its stability, he added. He said: 'We have won the battle for Pakistans freedom but the grimmer battle for preservation of that freedom is still in progress. 'The Quaid stood for the rule of law, for freedom and democracy, for social justice, for discipline and orderly progress. He envisaged Pakistan as a welfare State. In his message on Eid-ul-Fitr on August27th, 1948, he wrote, 'It is only with united effort and faith in our destiny that we shall be able to translate the Pakistan of our dreams into reality. Our government is striving hard to restore peace in the country and put the economy back on rails to progress and prosperity. We have restored the Constitution in its original form and empowered the Parliament. We have harmonised inter-provincial relations and ensued reconciliatory politics in the country. The government is fighting the menace of terrorism through effective strategy, he added. Recent ravaging floods have caused colossal loss to our economy washed away one fifth of our agriculture and displaced 20 million people. However, I have complete faith in the resilience of our nation which has always braved such daunting challenges with courage, he said. 'I solemnly assure the flood affectees that their Government will not leave them in the lurch and will rehabilitate them in their home in the shortest possible time. He said that he was confident that on this day we would come upto the expectations of our great Quaid and pledge to extend all possible help to our brethren devastated by the ravaging floods. We shall, with the grace of Almighty Allah and with the support of our brave people, overcome the challenges confronting the nation and turn them into opportunity to make Pakistan a better place, he added.
