Q.What are the demands that our freedom makes on us ?(Pakistan and The Modern World)
Ans. The first duty of a free nation is to protect its freedom. if it cannot defend its freedom, it disgraces not only itself but also the free people of the whole world.Therefore, our first duty is to protect our freedom. And this would require continuous effort and vigilance.
Freedom from foreign rule only is not real or complete freedom. It is only the first stage, though very important stage. That a people should be able to choose its government is not enough. True freedom means freedom from poverty, disease and ignorance. When a nation overcomes these evils, it will become a truly free nation. During the last two or three centuries of foreign rule, we have remained backward while the West has achieved great progress and prosperity. We have to march on at double pace to catch up with the developed countries of the world. While holding fast to our faith we must acquire modern technology very quickly to make Pakistan a prosperous country.
