LAHORE - The Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust (NPT) and the Pakistan Movement Workers Trust on Tuesday organised a special sitting to remember Pakistan Movement worker and former Punjab Chief Minister Ghulam Haider Wyne on his 20th death anniversary at Aiwan-e-Karkunan-Tehreek-e-Paksitan.
The sitting was presided over by The Nation Editor-in-Chief and NPT Chairman Dr Majid Nizami while acting Punjab Governor Rana Iqbal was the chief guest on the occasion. The sitting was attended by a large number of people.
Speaking on the occasion, Majid Nizami said that Ghulam Haider Wyne was a simple man who did not care for comforts and luxuries. Even when he became the Punjab chief minister, he did not give up his simple way of life, he added. He was gifted with great administrative capabilities and reorganised the Muslim League to the grass-root level, he said.
“Had Pakistan been blessed with a few individuals like him, it would have been transformed into a country truly reflecting the vision of the Quaid-i-Azam and Allama Iqbal. His martyrdom has closed the chapter of sincerity, honesty and selfless service to humanity in the history of our politics,” Nizami held.
The Nation Editor-in-Chief said the killer(s) of Wyne was still at large and demanded of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif that the murderer(s) must be brought to book. He said the deceased had laid the foundation-stone of the “Baab-i-Pakistan” at Walton where hundreds and thousands of Muslim refugees, migrating from India, had stayed. It’s a pity, he said, that the project was still incomplete.
Acting Punjab Governor Rana Iqbal Khan said that Wyne was a source of inspiration for the political workers. He won the Muslim League a huge number of members, he said.
He said that the incumbent government would transform Pakistan into the country according to the vision of Quaid-i-Azam and Allama Iqbal. He also prayed for the departed soul.
Begum Majida Wyne thanked Nizami for organising sitting to remember Ghulam Haidar Wyne every year on his death anniversary. She said Wnye donated his life for service of the country. He was against hypocrisy, she added.
NPT Vice Chairman Prof Rafique Ahmad remarked that the deceased was a sincere leader of the Muslim League. He established many institutions to enhance the position and status of the country amongst the comity of nations like the Punjab Education Foundation, Punjab Health Foundation, Lahore Press Club, NPT and Aiwan-i-Karkunaan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan as well as many hospitals, schools, colleges and welfare centers. Every politician must follow in his footsteps, he said.
Other speakers including Dastgir Khan, former MNA Bushra Rehman, MPA Rana Arshad, Ch Naeem Hussain Chattha and Aslam Zar Advocate also paid rich tribute to Ghulam Haidar Wyne.
Meanwhile, the students of Government Boys High School Kot Kamboh on Tuesday visited the Aiwan-i-Karkunan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan to attend Aghi programme of Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust (NPT). They also visited the Pakistan Movement Gallery on the occasion.
Also, mobile ideological units led by their coordinators visited Apwa College for Women, Government Diyal Singh College Nisbat Road, Ahmad Public School Walton Road, Descent Public School Walton Road, Arqam House Public High School Mughalpura, CDG Boys High School Mughalpura, The Muslim Scientific High School Rachna Town and Rachna Executive High School Rachna Town respectively.
The institution heads presided over the ceremonies in the said institutions. In their lectures, they lauded the NPT’s role in disseminating the Two-Nation Theory to the new generation.
