Pakistan

I cannot emphasize it too much. We should begin to work in that spirit and in course of time all these angularities of the majority and minorities communities, the Hindu community and the Muslim community.will vanish. Indeed, if you ask me this has been the biggest hindrance in the way of India to attain freedom and independence and but for this we would have been free peoples long long ago.You are free, you are free to go to your tamples, You are free to go to your mosques or to any other place of worship in this state of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste on creed - that has nothing to do with the business of the state.We are starting in the days when there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another.We are all citizens and equal citizens of one state.all members of the Nation.and you will find than in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslim would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the state.My guiding principle will be justice and complete impartiality, and I am sure that with your support and co-operation, I can look forward to Pakistan becoming one of the greatest Nations of the world.
