ISLAMABAD   -   Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday said that the entire nation paid tribute to the Founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muham­mad Ali Jinnah for his untiring struggle, sagacity and leadership qualities which led to securing of Muslims’ rights in the sub-continent.

In a series of tweets, the prime minister said to­day, the nation was observing 74th death anniver­sary of the Father of the Nation. Without his dy­namic leadership, the dream of a sovereign state for the Muslims of India would not have come true.

The prime minister said today, there was a need for the nation to emulate the Father of Pakistan’s everlasting principles of faith, unity and disci­pline to face the current challenges. The country gripped with financial difficulties was also braving the natural calamity in form of floods, he added.

The prime minister expressed his firm confi­dence that with infusing the power of faith, unity and brotherhood among their ranks, they would achieve such kind of discipline that would not only lead them to overcome the financial and post-flood challenges, but also help them achieve the destination of Quaid’s great Pakistan.
