LAHORE - PML-N chief Nawaz Sharifs statement on the eve of Pakistans 65th Independence Day pronouncing the Indian gods and culture similar as that of Pakistan is not only a sinister move to undermine the two-nation theory but also a deliberate attempt to nullify the sacrifices of countless Muslims for the creation of Pakistan, remarked PML-Q leader Moonis Elahi.
He expressed these views through an open letter issued on Monday addressing all Pakistanis.
It is a great historical fact and an undeniable reality that Pakistan was created in the name of Islam. The Muslims of the Sub-continent struggled for independence under the leadership of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah to live in a society that believed in one God unlike the Hindus who worshipped several gods and goddesses, Moonis Elahi said.
He added, But today, a Pakistani politician who claims to head a faction of Muslim League (the very party which founded Pakistan) has the audacity to challenge the very ethos of Pakistan.
Moonis said he did not have words to condemn this most fickle exercise at finding commonalities between the two most diverse faiths and nations. If 'aalu gosht is what Nawaz Sharif considers as a binding force between India and Pakistan then he should have kept in his mind that the meat Indians relish the most is that of the innocent Kashmiri Muslims, he further maintained.
PML-Q leader conclude his open letter saying, I will end my statement with words of a senior Pakistani journalist known for his patriotic views who said, If Nawaz Sharif has such soft corner for Hindus then he should shift his Jaati Umra residence to Amritsar.
