I am sharing an interesting thing with you about the inaugural session of the first constituent assembly of Pakistan that was held today, August 11, 1947 , which is not taught in the Pakistan studies nor my colleague Journalists & other intellectuals dares to speak this truth.
A large number of Pakistani Muslims, who were kept ignorant by the state, believe that Quaid-e-Azam made Pakistan a religious state. And Pakistan was like that from the beginning, as it is now, that is, a staunch Islamic country, (Where religious extremism is everywhere، Non-Muslims are treated as second-class citizens). But my dear friends, that is not the case at all.
Quaid-e-Azam Mr Jinnah wanted to make Pakistan a secular state, not an Islamic religious one, where all citizens would have equal rights.
Learn about Quaid-e-Azam’s actions in this regard.
(1).Today, when the first meeting of the legislative assembly was held to make the constitution of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam did not call any Molvi for recitation of Holy Quran in this meeting, Not even Quaid-e-Azam began his speech with Bismillah۔ (This is clear proof that no single religion would gain supremacy in Pakistan. And that the state affairs of Pakistan will have nothing to do with any religion. The new state of Pakistan will be a liberal secular welfare state, not an Islamic one.)
(2).Instead of chairing the first constitutional meeting himself, #Quaid-e-Azam #Mr_Jinnah presented the post of chairman to one of the great founding fathers of Pakistan, #Jogandra_Nath_Mandal, who was a Hindu by religion. (Who is Jogandra Nath Mandal, I have shared whole story about him on my YouTube channel #SajjadPirzada.)
(3). The Quaid-i-Azam Mr, Jinnah did not even once mentioned the word religion, Islam, or the name of 1400-year-old system in this meeting. Rather, he talked about adopting the British secular, liberal system for his new country, and thanked the American people, the United States.
