Shibli Faraz said we have to take the country towards development and self-reliance if we want to attain a dignified place in the comity of nations. He said on the auspicious occasion of Independence Day, we should renew the pledge that we will not refrain from any sacrifice for the protection and progress of the country.

He said the atrocities unleashed against Muslims in India as well as Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir have vindicated Quaid-e-Azam’s vision of Pakistan.
