Asad Akram, General Secretary of Pakistan Journalists Forum said  that after 56 years we  could not made Pakistan in accordance to Quaid-e-Azam’s ideology who wanted to make it an  Islamic, Democratic Welfare state but due to vested interest of our leaders and involvement of  military in the national politics.
Rauf Tahir said that this century did not produce leaders like Quaid-e-Azam and Pakistan    was possible only with his leadership. He said that we could not follow his teaching after the creation of
Pakistan hence lost one wing in 1971. He said that that quarter million Patriotic   Pakistanis are living in very subhuman condition in the camps in Bangladesh as his he visited in 1998 and the situation now has worsened.
