LAHORE: The Pakistan of today is not what Quaid-e-Azam had envisioned, says PTI chief Imran Khan .
“The Pakistan that Quaid-e-Azam wanted was the one where everyone had rights,” he said. “Muslims were minorities in the sub-continent hence Jinnah wanted a country where the rights of Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and everyone else had freedom.”
Imran said that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was the most inspirational leader that the world had ever seen and he the Madina state was an example for all to see.
“He said that seeking education was the duty of every person, even though he/she had to go to China,” said Imran.
