FAITH, UNITY AND DISCIPLINE
Islam and its idealism have taught democracy. Islam has taught equality, justice, and Fairplay to everybody. What reason is there 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, Bar Association, Karachi,
25 January 1948
ISLAM – DEMOCRACY, EQUALITY, JUSTICE, FREEDOM, INTEGRITY, FAIRPLAY
I have no doubt that with unity, faith, and discipline we will not only remain the fifth largest State in the world but will compare with any nation of the world….You must make up your mind now. We must sink individualism and petty jealousies and make up our minds to serve the people with honesty and faithfulness.(because) We are passing through a period of fear, danger and menace. We must have faith, unity and discipline.Reply to North Western Railway Officers
welcome address, Karachi, 28 December 1947.
EQUALITY, FRATERNITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Brotherhood, equality, and fraternity of man – these are all the basic points of our religion, culture, and civilization and we fought for Pakistan because there was a danger of the denial of these human rights in this Subcontinent.Address, Public Reception, Chittagong,
26 March 1948
EQUAL TREATMENT AND RIGHTS OF MINORITIES
Minorities to whichever community they may belong will be safeguarded. Their religion of faith or belief will be secure. There will be no interference of any kind will their freedom of worship. They will have their protection with regard to their religion, faith, their life, and their culture. They will be, in all respects, the citizens of Pakistan without any distinction of caste or creed.Press Conference, New Delhi, 14 July 1947.
LIBERTY, FREEDOM AND EQUALITY
You are free!! yes, you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the State….We are starting with this fundamental principle: that we are all citizens and equal citizens of one State…..Now, I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal and you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the State.Address, Constituent Assembly of Pakistan,
Karachi, 11 August 1948
