Pakistan's 52nd year of independence


`The creation of the new state has placed a tremendous responsibility on the the citizens of Pakistan. It gives them an opportunity to demonstrate to the world how a nation containing many elements can live in peace and amity and work for the betterment of all its citizens, irrespective of caste or creed.'

- Mohammad Ali Jinnah,
founding father of Pakistan.

The National Anthem

Blessed be the sacred Land
Happy be the bounteous realm
Symbol of high resolve
Land of Pakistan
Blessed be thou citadel of faith

The order of this sacred land
Is the might of the brotherhood of the People
May the nation, the country, and the state
Shine in glory everlasting
Blessed be the goal of our ambition

This Flag of the Crescent and Star
Leads the way to progress and perfection

Interpreter of our past, glory of our present
Inspiration of our future
Symbol of Almighty's protection

This August 14th, 52 years would have passed since Pakistan emerged on the world map. It was the fruit of the continuous efforts and struggle of the Muslims in South-Asia for an area which could be called their homeland, a land which would be a living example of the Islamic system and way of life.

It is now 1999. Times have changed, people have changed, and so has Pakistan. We are on the verge of the beginning of a new century, and Pakistan is ready to face the challenges that will be presented in the 21st century. We have progressed from barren land to become the seventh nuclear power in the world, the only Muslim state in the world to indigenously produce nuclear weapons.

This site is a show of gratitude to what Pakistan has given us. It is not merely a nationality or identity we have gained, it is a way of life. It is the freedom of life which Pakistan has gifted us - the freedom that is in the air around us that we breathe, the freedom that is in the land we walk on, the freedom that can be felt when looking at the clouds hover in the skies above us.

Enjoy your stay.
