“If you didn’t stand up for your own country, no one can help you ever. Allah’s blessings do not shower upon the oppressor. We’ll have to fight against the tyranny and will have to side with the oppressed, the poor the uneducated and the deprived only then He’ll shower upon us,” he said while addressing a massive rally at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore, stronghold of the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PMLN).
Several PTI leaders including Murad Saeed, Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Arif Alvi addressed the rally.
Prompting deliberation over creation of Pakistan, PTI chief Imran Khan said everyone should ask himself why this country was founded.
“What was the need to create this country, I’ll explain it to you today why Quiaid-e-Azam who initially wanted to bring Hindus and Muslims together, later decided for a separate country for Pakistan.
“Quaid-e-Azam decided for a separate country because the Congress didn’t want to give equal rights to Muslims but wanted Hindu raj,” he said.
He said the Quaid had the foresight to see that Muslims will never be able to live with equal rights in India.
“Muslims were a minority in India. While In Pakistan, Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims were supposed to be equal and together based on the Islamic welfare state of Medina,” he said.
Imran said Muslims, who followed the principles of justice, ruled the world for centuries.
Responding to the ruling party’s propaganda about him that he was a laadla (blue-eyed boy) of the establishment, he said he was the only brother of his four sisters and he was his mother’s blue-eyed boy.
“The PML-N calls me blue-eyed boy, yes, but I was only my mother’s blue-eyed boy.”
