ISLAMABAD, Dec 25 (INP): Secretary General (SG) All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Dr Amjad has said that creation of Pakistan was not aimed at acquiring a piece of land for Muslims of subcontinent but establishing a public welfare state where Muslim can lead lives at their own will.

Dr Amjad said that Qauid-e-Azam wanted to establish a public welfare state in form of Pakistan where masses will rule, where women will enjoy equal rights, where self respect of each and every citizen will be protected and where minorities will enjoy all basic rights as independent citizens of the state.
The APML SG said that it was matter of grave concern that despite passage of 67 years we have succeeded to fulfill the dreams of founder of the country and we are divided in sects today instead of uniting for national cause. Dr Amjad said that law and order situation in country was unsatisfactory as every countrymen fears threat to his life and property and an atmosphere of uncertainty prevails everywhere across the country.
