Former PM Nawaz Sharif has reminded the Pakistanis of Fall of Dhaka while talking to media outside the mausoleum of national poet Allama Muhammad Iqbal on Monday to offer Fateha there.
Talking to newsmen outside the mausoleum Nawaz Sharif said the independence of Pakistan cannot be celebrated with fervour as the country is detached from an essential part that belonged to it.
He said Pakistan would have been moving towards development at a faster pace had Bangladesh still been part of the country.
He maintained that Pakistan came into existence through the power of the vote and we were celebrating its 70th Independence Day.
Sharif expressed that if we wanted to make Pakistan, a country envisioned by Allama Muhammad Iqbal and Quaid e Azam then the mandate of masses should be respected.
‘Democracy, in essence, lies in the supremacy of constitution’ Nawaz Sharif said.
