With Sultan Tipu Sultan as our hero, Pakistani Nation would never surrender before enemy, says PM Khan
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said the Pakistani nation, inspired by the Sub-continent’s valiant ruler Tipu Sultan, would never surrender to the enemy or compromise its dignity.
“As a dignified nation, we will fight till our last breath if forced to choose between freedom and slavery,” he said in his policy statement at the joint sitting of parliament.
The prime minister made a comparison between the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar who chose to surrender and Tipu Sultan, the Ruler of Maysore, who fought till his death.
“We’d heard about the two kings. But our hero is Tipu Sultan,” Imran Khan referred to the brave Ruler of Maysore, who used to say: ‘A lion’s life for a day is better than that of hundred years of a jackal.’
