In his Independence Day address, Hafiz Naeemur Rahman said: “Pakistan is destined to become an Islamic welfare state,” urging the nation to remain steadfast to help the cause succeed.
He said the country was founded after a long struggle on 1947 but the ruling elite of politicians, generals, bureaucrats and judges failed its purpose of creation.
