Here I am going to write a detailed Independence Day Essay. As all of us know that we Pakistani are going to celebrate independence day on 14 August.
Independence Day Essay is as under:
Pakistan came into being in 1947 after a long struggle. The India Muslims had been fighting against the English and the Hindus for centuries to have an Islamic State where they could have a full growth of their culture.
Sindh was annexed in AD 712 by Muhammad din Qasim who advance as far as Multan. Although the Muslims withdrew from Sindh Makran continued to remain under Muslims rule for many years. In AD 1001, the Muslims entered the sub-continent from the north-west, this time under the leadership of Mahmud Ghaznavi- with the passage of time, Muslims began to rule over a large area termed as “sub-continent”. This Muslim power was ended at Bahadur shah Zafar the last Mughal Empire, when British came into sub-continent-
Arrival of Britishers
The British entered the politics of the indo-Pakistan sub-continent through their trading concern, the East India Company, which was founded on 31 December 1600. Eventually, they displaced the local Muslim rulers, who had been in power for 650 years. Before the Muslims, the Hindus and earlier still, the aboriginal tribes and Dravidians, were master of this region. It is important, therefore to understand the history of the sub- continent in order to appreciate how and why Pakistan was created.
Ideology of Pakistan
Islam, as a complete code of life, can guide the Muslims in private as well as public matters. The Holy Quran and the Sunnah can guide us in framing our private and public laws in all important matters. The laws of the country should, therefore, be based on the Holy Quran and the sunnah.
The people know and feel that Islam promises them a bright future in this world as well as in the next. If they perform their religious and social duties regularly according to their religion, society will prosper. Therefore, we should not only have Islamic laws but their enforcement in effective way. We should not permit anything in society that goes against Islam and its principles. We should, firstly, try to repeal (cancel) all such laws as are in conflict with Islam.
Secondly, we should start a powerful campaign (movement) to train the minds of the people in favour of their ideology. We should tell them, through the press, the radio, TV and speeches, all that is Islamic and not Islamic. Our progress depends on social justice and equality. Justice means equality before the law and equal rewards and punishments.
However highly placed a person may be, he should be answerable for his bad deeds. All the people, rich and poor alike, should have equal chances of making progress in any field they like. For example, intelligent and able poor students should be admitted to the best educational institutions.
We need to teach the Pakistan ideology correctly and completely. Our education, form the school to the university level, should have a regular pattern of ideological studies. The courses related to these studies should be interesting. All the people, whether they are Muslims or not, should have freedom to progress in all fields of national life. The law should guarantee the rights of every religious community.
We can become truly great if we follow our ideology in the true spirit. Surely, we can avoid all the dangerous developments that took ideology states like Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy and Lenin’s Soviet Union to disintegration or destruction.
Though they managed to become world powers within a short period, their downfall was no less quick. We should avoid their inflexibility and dictatorial ways. We, with a more meaningful and flexible ideology, can reach the pinnacle of success, this worldly as well as otherworldly.
14 August 1947 was Pakistan’s date with destiny. A seven-year old struggle came triumphantly to and end and a long cherished dream stood translated into reality.
