We the people of Pakistan are a diverse people, living in a country that was an answer to a prayer and a dream come true for our forefathers seven decades back. Someone dreamt for a free state for the welfare and well being of a people known as Pakistanis today and somebody took it as a duty to materialize this dream. And once the dream got materialized, someone spoke through his poetry for the dignity of common man in the face of tyranny. Allama Iqbal, Quaid-e- Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Faiz Ahmed Faiz are three icons of our history, held in high esteem by us all. We Pakistanis may have conflicting world-views, we might lock our horns on how our country should be governed and society be shaped but we all agree on the insurmountable debt we owe to these giants of our history, Iqbal, Jinnah and Faiz.
Despite all our disharmony and jangling discords, we can agree on one point. We have somewhat lost track of the direction envisioned by our forefathers and these three icons of our history. Despite all our differences we do agree on the fact that we need to work harder and work smarter to make Pakistan a better place to live.
IJF at United for better Pakistan stands for resolute and unwavering commitment to the ideals of these greatest visionaries of our nation. We believe in turning these ideals into living realities and tangible results. We will get this accomplished by reforming our systems and liberating Pakistan’s downtrodden masses from the quagmire of bad governance, poverty and deprivation. We will put our commitment into action by working for a meticulously planned constitutional package, called Jinnah’s amendment. Jinnah’s amendment is the fruit of years of hard work by some of the brightest minds of our nation. We own this commitment to the ideals of our greatest visionaries as our mission statement.
