@ghazi52

You are making interesting threads and posts on this forum. Just wanted to tell you that. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry for "spamming" this thread.

Do you have old photos of Gwadar when it was still a part of Oman? Also do you have photos of major cities such as Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi etc. For instance how did rural Punjab look like? Farming villages etc. Just so I can compare with KSA and Arab countries. I imagine that there would be quite some similarities.

In July 1948, Mr. M. A. H. Ispahani went to Ziarat where Quaid-i-Azam was seriously ill. He pleaded with Quaid-i-Azam that he should take complete rest as his life was most precious. Quaid-i-Azam smiled and said: “My boy there was a time when soon after partition and until 1948, I was worried whether Pakistan would survive. Many unexpected and terrible shocks were administered by India soon after we parted company with them. But we pulled through and nothing will ever worry us so much again.

“I have no worries now. Men may come and men may go. But Pakistan is truly and firmly established and will go on with Allah’s grace forever”.
