Pakistan displays some of Asia’s most magnificent landscapes as it stretches from the Arabian Sea, its southern border, to some of the world’s most spectacular mountain ranges in the north. Pakistan is also home to sites that date back to word’s earliest settlements rivaling those of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia . When Pakistan emerged on the map of the world as a sovereign and independent state in August 1947, it was like a baby in ICU with hardly any prospect of survival, on account of its extremely vulnerable defence and fragile economy.
However, despite numerous setbacks, crises and turmoils of gigantic magnitude, it has so far been able to survive and make some progress due to several factors, perhaps the most important of which is its strategic geographical location and its particular ideology. Pakistan’s geo-strategic importance can be best understood in the regional and global perspective. In geographical terms, it is surrounded by four countries: Afghanistan, Iran, India and China, each of which is a major player in international politics. In one way or the other, Pakistan is vital for these countries and this raises its international stature. years before I went to America via Dubai, it was my first trip to aboard and to be very honest I felt as if I am going to heaven.
I reached Dubai and after that New york international airport. The first thing American emigration officer asked me ,Who are you? Meanwhile I took out my passport and he replied “ooh green passport, Pakistani right. ” It was the proudest moment off my life as I replied “ Yes I am Pakistani. ” Pakistan is important for me because I know that we have got this country after a struggle of years. acrificed for this piece of land, Pakistan is country for which my ancestors have sacrificed their lives, happiness and even their property. This country is not a piece of a land for me it is my identity, when your ancestors gave their life, property, money and even their happiness then this country just not remains a piece of land but actually it is a name for our emotions . I love Pakistan and I want to highlight this point that a human cannot love a piece of land, a human cannot give his or her life for a piece of land, a human cannot sacrifice his or her happeines for a piece of land.
An old man was asked on a TV program, what does Pakistan mean to you? He replied telling a true story. He said “When I was coming to Pakistan, I saw an old man just like me, he was tired, injured and thirsty. He asked: “Has Pakistan arrived”, I said ‘Yes’. He took the soil and kissed it. He asked for water. When I brought water, I saw some crows and a dog beside him. When I came near, the old man had died. ” The old man interviewed had tears in his eyes then. He said to the interviewer “The eyes who had seen such scenes know what Pakistan means”.
When in early nineteenth century women all over the world were struggling for their right to vote it was Pakistan who actually gave their women right to vote in the first gernal elections which took place in 1948. After Pakistan emerged as sovereign state ,Pakistan faced some serious challenges and one of the most serious problem was that; Pakistan did not had a established army ,it was 1947 at that time and today we should be proud to tell people that in a period of 65 years Pakistan has developed a army who can easily defend their country we are extremely safe at our borders.
Why are we able establish a good army but not a good system? If I answer in a positive manner so it is a true fact there are still several people who are ready to give their lives for this country Pakistan. Despite having several resources which includes a huge reserve of coal in Thar desert ,second largest salt mine in the world known as kewra slat mine, a city like Karachi affiliated by all natural perspective, I would love to say that the biggest advantage of Pakistan is the people of Pakistan who can even give their lives for the sake of their country.
No doubt we(Pakistanis) are suffering from various issues but as I Pakistani I can justify my identity. I am proud to be a Pakistani as we produced worlds best cricketers Shaid Afridi, Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and the great Imran khan. I am proud to be a Pakistani as we produced Arfa Kareem . I am proud to be a Pakistani as we produced Sharmeen Obeid Chinoy who got the first oskar award for a tremendous documentary. Almighty Allah it is your grace upon us that we are under the umbrella of Qaide Azams ideology, Sir Syed’s thinking and the vision of Allma Iqbal so I am proud to be a Pakistani.
What I am without my name an unknown person but what I am without my nationality no one will recognize me. “We must strive for freedom if we strive for self-knowledge. The task of self-knowledge and of further self-development is of such importance and seriousness, it demands such intensity of effort, that to attempt it any old way and amongst other things is impossible. The person who undertakes this task must put it first in his life, which is not so long that he can afford to squander it on trifles. This quote clearly defines the importance of freedom. How is freedom important? Freedom is an essential part of our life . Freedom is probably one of the most important civil liberties in a democratic society. Freedom is so important for a living thing because freedom is the meaning of life. Freedom means the point that you have not to listen to anyone and that you can do anything and everything on your own. We are actually committing a crime by keeping animals & birds in a cage . They also love their freedom.
So we should not keep them in a cage . We can also be punished by the government for doing this crime. Freedom is synonym of license which means restrictions. So freedom is important. Struggle of our leaders and ancestors was not for a piece of land but it was for their identity, the struggle was for freedom, struggle was for their emotions, struggle was for Pakistan a land of pure. So Pakistan for us is not a piece of land but actually it is our identity, Pakistan is a name of our emotions, Pakistan is our homeland which has other competition.
