LAHORE - Country needs educated mothers as they can impart proper education and training to our coming generations and ensure Pakistan a prestigious place among the comity of nations.
These views were expressed by The Nation Editor-in-Chief Dr Majid Nizami while addressing an internship programme for the girl students at the Aiwan-i-Karkunaan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan. The event is jointly organised by the Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust and Tehreek-i-Pakistan Workers Trust.
Dr Sameeha Raheel Qazi, Professor Dr Parveen Khan and NPT Secretary Shahid Rasheed were also present.
Nizami remarked that the Sub-continent Muslims participated in the historic struggle for independence on the basis of ideology of Pakistan. Allama Iqbal presented the concept and persuaded Quaid-e-Azam to return from England in order lead the struggle for freedom.
“Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah devoted her life to ensure all the comforts for her ailing brother,” Nizami added.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Sameeh Raheel Qazi paid a tribute to Dr Majid Nizami’s national and journalistic services. She said Islam had put an end to all the evil practices including burying the girl-infants alive and allotted an elevated status to women in the society. “Mother is the heart of the family and women are an important pillar of the civilization,” she added.
Professor Dr Parveen Khan said that we must learn to value the blessing of freedom as the Muslims had offered supreme sacrifices to gain a separate and sovereign state.
A sitting will be held at Aiwan-i-Karkunan-i-Tehreek-i-Pakistan under the auspices of Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust on Tuesday with title ‘The Provocations of India and our Responsibilities’.
The sitting will be chaired by Dr Majeed Nizami, a zealous worker of the Pakistan Movement, an eminent journalist and Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust Chairman whereas Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, Jamat-ud-Dawah Chief will be the guest of honour.
Other speakers include Professor Dr Rafique Ahmad, Brig (r) Farooq Hameed Khan, Hafiz Saif Ullah Mansoor and Qari Sheikh Muhammad Yaqoob. This sitting is being organised with the collaboration of the Tehreek-i-Pakistan Workers Trust.
