    On Pakistan's 70th independence day let us remember Quaid's vision for Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

    Motivation to create Pakistan:

    "We must get Pakistan at any cost. For it we live and for it we will die. The Mussalmans have to struggle and struggle hard for their honourable existence….you must work and work hard. By doing so you will contribute substantially not only to the honour of ten crores of Muslims but to the crystallization of a free Muslim state of Pakistan where Muslims will be able to offer the ideology of Islamic rule."

    (Address, Public Meeting, Mardan, 24 November 1945)

    "We have to fight a double-edged battle, one against the Hindu Congress and the other against the British Imperialists, both of whom are capitalist. The Muslims demand Pakistan, where they could live according to their own code of life, their own cultural growth, traditions and Islamic Laws."

    (Speech at the Frontier Muslim League Conference at Peshawar, 20 November 1945)

    "Muslim India expects every Musalman to stand by our cherished goal - Pakistan, and our national organisation, the League. I am confident that the Pathans will join hands with other Indian Muslims to make sacrifices for the cause of Islam. And we shall win gloriously and honourably."

    (Reported in the weekly Khyber Mail, Peshawar, 23 November 1945)

    "We do not demand Pakistan simply to have a piece of land but we want a laboratory where we could experiment on Islamic principles."

    (Addressing Islamia College, 1946)

    Constitution and system of government of Pakistan

    "Pakistan is the premier Islamic State and the fifth largest in the world...The constitution of Pakistan has yet to be framed by the Pakistan Constituent Assembly. I do not know what the ultimate shape of this constitution is going to be, but I am sure that it will be of a democratic type, embodying the essential principle of Islam. Today, they are as applicable in actual life as they were 1,300 years ago. Islam and its idealism have taught us democracy. It has taught equality of man, justice and fairplay to everybody. We are the inheritors of these glorious traditions and are fully alive to our responsibilities and obligations as framers of the future constitution of Pakistan. In any case Pakistan is not going to be a theocratic State to be ruled by priests (a Western concept that never happened in Islamic history) with a divine mission..."

    (Radio address to the people of USA, February 1948)

    "Islam and its idealism have taught democracy. Islam has taught equality, justice and fairplay to everybody. What reason is their for anyone to fear democracy, equality, freedom on the highest standard of integrity and on the basis of fairplay and justice for everybody…..Let us make it (the future constitution of Pakistan), We shall make it and we shall show it to the world."

    (Address to Bar Association, Karachi, 25 January 1948)

    "I have one underlying principle in mind, the principle of Muslim democracy. It is my belief that our salvation lies in following the golden rules of conduct set for us by our great law giver, the Prophet of Islam. Let us lay the foundation of our democracy on the basis of truly Islamic ideals and principles. Our Almighty has taught us that 'our decisions in the affairs of the State shall be guided by discussions and consultations'."

    (1948)

    Ideology of Pakistan:

    "We should have a State in which we could live and breathe as free men and which we could develop according to our own lights and culture and where principles of Islamic social justice could find free play."

    (Address to Civil, Naval, Military and Air Force Officers of Pakistan Government, Karachi October 11, 1947.)

    "The establishment of Pakistan for which we have been striving for the last ten years is, by grace of God, an established fact today, but the creation of a State of our own was a means to an end and not the end in itself. The idea was that we should have a state in which we could live and breathe as free men and which we could develop according to our own lights and culture and where principles of Islamic social justice could find fairplay."

    (Broadcast Message 15th August, 1947)

    "Now you have to stand guard over the development and maintenance of Islamic
    democracy, Islamic social justice and equality of manhood in your own native soil."


    ( On February 21, 1948, while addressing the men and officers of the 5th Heavy Ack Ack and 6th” Light Ack Ack Regiments at Malir )

    "Remember! We are building up a State which is going to play its full part in the destinies of the whole Islamic World..."

    (12th April, 1948)

    "Pakistan not only means freedom and independence but the Muslim Ideology which has to be preserved, which has come to us as a precious gift and treasure and which, we hope other will share with us."


    "No doubt, there are many people who do not quite appreciate when we talk of Islam. Islam is not only a set of rituals, traditions and spiritual doctrines. Islam is also a code for every Muslim, which regulates his life and his conduct in even politics and economics and the like. It is based upon highest principles of honour, integrity, fair play and justice for all."

    (March 5, 1948)

    "What more can one really expect than to see that this mighty land has now been brought under a rule, which is Islamic, Muslim rule, as a sovereign independent State."

    (Speech to the Principal, Staff and Students of Edwards College, Peshawar, 18 April 1948)

    Sectarianism:

    “Our bedrock and sheet anchor is Islam. There is no question of Shias and Sunnis. We are one and we must move into [the] nation as one and then alone shall we be able to retain Pakistan."

    (Address at Annual Session of the Punjab Muslim Students Federation, Lahore, 20 March 1944)

    Civil rights:

    "You are free; you are free to go to your temples. You are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion, caste or creed –that has nothing to do with the business of the State."

    (Presidential Address to the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan on 11th August,
    1947.)

    "The tolerance and goodwill that great Emperor Akbar showed to all the non-Muslim is not of recent origin. It dates back thirteen centuries ago when our Prophet not only by words but by deeds treated the Jews and Christians, after he had conquered them, with the utmost tolerance and regard and respect for their faith and beliefs. The whole history of Muslims, wherever they ruled, is replete with those humane and great principles which should be followed and practiced."

    (Address to the constituent assembly, 14th August, 1947. Supposedly responding Lord Mountbatten on his comment hoping that Pakistan will have the rule of Akbar)

    Views on minorities:

    "The tenets of Islam enjoin on every Musalman to give protection to his neighbors and to the minorities, regardless of cast and creed"

    "Despite the treatment which is being meted out to the Muslim minorities in India, we must make it a matter of our prestige and honour to safeguard the lives of the minority communities...”

    (Addressing a rally at the Lahore university stadium, October 30th 1947)

    Foreign relations:

    "Our object should be peace within, and peace without. We want to live peacefully and maintain cordial friendly relations with our immediate neighbours and with the world at large."

    (Lahore, August 15th, 1947.)

    Role of Armed forces:

    "Do not forget that the armed forces are the servants of the people and you do not make national policy; it is we, the civilians, who decide these issues and it is your duty to carry out these tasks with which you are entrusted”.

    (Quaid-e-Azam to Armed Forces; Aug 14, 1947)

    Role of women:

    "I have always maintained that no nation can ever be worthy of its existence that cannot take its women along with the men. No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men. There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women."

    (Speech at Islamia College for women March 25, 1940.)

    Views on (crony) Capitalism and Feudal lords:

    "I should like to give a warning to the landlords and capitalists who have flourished at our expense by a system which is so vicious, which is so wicked and which makes them so selfish that it is difficult to reason with them. The exploitation of the masses has gone into their blood. They have forgotten the lessons of Islam."

    (Address, All India Muslim League Session, Delhi, 24 April 1943)

    Economics:

    "I shall watch with keenness the work of your Research Organization in evolving banking practices compatible with Islamic ideas of social and economic life. The economic system of the West has created almost insoluble problems for humanity and to many of us it appears that only a miracle can save it from disaster that is not facing the world. It has failed to do justice between man and man and to eradicate friction from the international field. On the contrary, it was largely responsible for the two world wars in the last half century. The Western world, in spite of its advantages, of mechanization and industrial efficiency is today in a worse mess than ever before in history. The adoption of Western economic theory and practice will not help us in achieving our goal of creating a happy and contended people. We must work our destiny in our own way and present to the world an economic system based on true Islamic concept of equality of manhood and social justice. We will thereby be fulfilling our mission as Muslims and giving to humanity the message of peace which alone can save it and secure the welfare,happiness and prosperity of mankind."

    (Speech at the Opening Ceremony of the State Bank of Pakistan, Karachi, 1 July 1948)

    ============================================

    Liberal westoxified elites and their pawns often use propaganda, half-baked truths, and straight out lies to constantly push western liberal secularism in Pakistan. Now, such wanna be western-slaves are openly supporting Nawaz Shareef (ehm, Asma Jahangir ;) ) because Nawaz was an asset for these India-loving, Islam and military hating wanna be westoxified burgers.

    I thought it was time to put their lies to rest. Save this post for future references whenever someone tries to lie that Pakistan was not supposed to be an Islamic state based on 11th August speech of Quaid-e-Azam or Quaid-e-Azam rejecting the concept of 'theocracy' (which is a Christian concept, and never used in Islamic history to begin with).

    Quaid-e-Azam, just like our other founders and ancesters, wanted a prosperous Islamic Republic where rule of law existed and principles/legal codes/culture of Islam prevailed with minorities having appropriate rights and protection.

    Let's work to achieve this grand vision.

    According to Desi Liberals' narrative, if Jinnah had wanted an Islamic Pakistan, his 11th August speech would be like this:

    "You are NOT free; you are NOT free to go to your temples, you are NOT free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this Islamic State of Pakistan.
    You may belong to any religion or caste or creed; that has Everything to do with the business of the Islamic State"


    Copied.

    Liberals are biggest liars here in Pakistan. They only quote one speech and that failing to tell the background. From 1940 till his death all his speeches makes it clear that Jinah wanted a Pakistan where Islamic Principals and Laws can be implemented and experimented upon.

    Is it your work or there is a link for it @AUz

    "Either I will take Constantinople, or Constantinople will take me" - Fatih Sultan Mehmet Han

    When Muslim folks unite around a "singular purpose" with Iman and Ihlas, usually it's a done deal!!!! If they look for alternatives with Fitne and Fesat, verily it's a doomed case!!! Rahmetli Jinnah was like, "Either I will take Pak, or Pak will take me"!!!! Nur ichinde yatsin - May he sleep within Nur!!!

    If we keep emotions set aside for few moments, we see Jinnah spoke with two tounges.

    Prior to 1947, he stressed the Islam in every political discourse . After 1947, he stressed 'secularism' in the state affairs.

    In essence , he has used the religion to gain the political power . Once he succeeded in his goal,he started talking about secularism.

    I am glad to see your curiosity to understand Jinnah's ideology, its a different story that how inaccurate it is. Feel free to use google when you are done with your current source.

    It would be helpful if you add some point of view rather than general preaching.

    Making Pakistan completely secular not only goes against the very founders of our nation, but also defies the whole purpose of Pakistan's existence.

    Pakistan was made for Muslims of the sub continent. Ruling by secular law would make partition almost pointless.

    No, he wanted Pakistan to be ruled by Islamic law, but still run as a modern state with democracy among other things, provided Quran and Sunnah were still adhered to.

    The closest we got to Jinnah's Pakistan was when Zia Ul Haq took charge. He brought in many Islamic policies whilst still maintaining Pakistan as a relatively modern and well viewed nation.
