He said it is good to show your love to homeland by organizing such functions and also he urged that we have to protect our ideology and remain united.

We have made big achievements, although on certain fronts we are still behind and all efforts are being made to over come those problems. He said every year we make speeches and go and then forget, what we said and promise. I believe that every one of us has to be a true Pakistani not by words but by our deeds. Create a Pakistan in your heart; transplant it in your family and then to relatives to gali, mohalla, town, city and country. We need to revive those true feeling that created Pakistan. That is what we need now. He stressed Pakistanis to remit their money to Pakistan through banking channels. He said that it is you who can make Pakistan strong and prosperous. Referring to Saudi Pakistani relations he said we are proud to have cordial relations with our brothers. The Government of the Servitor of Two Holy Mosques love Pakistan and Pakistanis.
