Why I Love Pakistan?

Man is a social animal. He is afraid of living alone. He is bound up in a thousand ways

with the people around him. He lives with others in a society. It is but natural that he
loves the place where he and his family and the people he loves live. The country is his
home and he loves it more than anything else.
I love Pakistan because it is my country. It is not only my motherland but also my
birthplace. I am born and brought up on this sacred land. I walk on its soil, breathe in its
air, eat from the food produced in its fields, wear the clothes made from its cotton, and
live in a house made from its mud and clay. The fair land has become flesh of my flesh
and bone of my bone. I love it more than my life.
I love Pakistan because it is an Islamic state. The name of my country is the Islamic
Republic of Pakistan. We have got it in the name of Islam. I am a Muslim and like to live
with Muslims. There is no check on me to worship my God in this sacred land of
Pakistan. I am free to go to the mosque or to keep fast. I am free to recite the Holy Quran.
I love my country for its ancient civilization. It is the land of the Indus Valley
Civilization. The ruins of ancient civilization at Taxila, Harappa and Mohenjo Daro are a
matter of great pride for all the countrymen. Its historical buildings like the great
Badshahi Mosque, Shahi Fort, Shalimar Gardens, Minar-i-Pakistan, Tomb of Jehangir,
Mahabat Khan Mosque and Hyderabad Fort etc. are worth seeing. The beautiful scenery
of different health resorts like Murree, Gilgat, Swat, Kaghan, Dir and Chitral etc. attract
thousands of foreigners ever year. I love Pakistan because it is the land of our national
heroes. My country is the result of their long period of strife and struggle. Among them
Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Iqbal are
worth mentioning. The brave and courageous soldiers of Pakistan fought so bravely that
every inch of its soil is rich with their sweat and blood. The names of Major Aziz Bhatti,
Brigadier Shami, Major Tufail, Rashid Minhas, Sarwar Shaheed, Naik Mehfooz and
Colonel Sher Khan have become immortal. I am really proud of them.
