KARACHI: The Caretaker Sindh Chief Minister Justice (retd) Maqbool Baqar said on Monday that the Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s vision of a democratic, pluralistic, and secular State has become submerged amidst dogma, extremism, and radicalism.
He recorded in the visitors’ book opened at Mazar-e-Quaid to celebrate his birth anniversary on December 25.
Justice Baqar wrote “Today, as we stand here at the birth anniversary of the great Quaid, we would be remiss to not acknowledge that his vision of a democratic, pluralistic, and secular State has become submerged amidst dogma, extremism, and radicalism.
“Let us strive to work towards a Pakistan where people, irrespective of their religion, class, or gender are allowed to actualise their potential,” CM further said, “A Pakistan where the rule of law reigns supreme, a Pakistan where Jinnah’s vision truly comes to life”.
He also visited Mazar-e-Quaid where he along with President Dr Arif Alvi, and Governor Sindh Kamran Tissori laid a floral wreath and offered fateha.
Caretaker Sindh Chief Minister, along with Minister of Information & Minorities Affairs Ahmad Shah visited St Patrick’s Cathedral in Saddar, met with Bishop Benny Mario Travas and celebrated Christmas by cutting a cake.
Furthermore, he also visited Holy Trinity Cathedral, gave a bouquet to Reverend Frederick John, Bishop of Karachi, and presented him with a cake to mark Christmas Eve.
