The association of Pakistan with the countries lying to its West has a long history, reminiscences of which can still be seen in Pakistan’s national life today. Due to these influences, it so happened that a distinct nation emerged within the sub-continent that continued to live without a name for centuries, and took to be referred as a religious minority. Hence, when the name of ‘Pakistan’1 was
allotted to this un-named nation (the areas where Muslims were in majority) and when after the process of self-discovery and self-realization the Muslims realized that they were indeed a ‘nation according to any definition’ belonging to a ‘different religious philosophies, social customs, literatures and civilization’. Then, the reserve formed due to lack of name, deceptive phrases like minority, and the unjust attitude during atrocious Congress2 rule 3,4 ceased to be a reserve anymore, and the nation envisaged
the possibility of creating a country for themselves where they could ‘develop to the fullest their spiritual, cultural, economic, social and political life’. So, triggered by the Islamic morals and led by their ‘Quaid-e-Azam’5 Mohammad Ali Jinnah,6 Muslims of India marched to their destiny of sovereign status and won the battle for Pakistan not with an army but with the power of words written with their determination.
