PREAMBLE
Whereas:
I

The creation of Pakistan was a result of the relentless struggle of Muslims in India
under the inspiring leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, to establish
a homeland where people of all religious persuasions could freely practice their
beliefs and ideals and where the rights of minorities were expressly guaranteed and
determined;

2

Pakistan was envisaged as a country and society wherein people would live in
harmony and peace - free from discrimination, exploitation, corruption and
prejudices of any kind - under a democratic system ensuring justice, equality and
prosperity for all citizens;

3

The concentration of power at the centre and frequent and long military takeovers
have negated the spirit of federalism, causing a sense of deprivation among the
federating units, which resulted in narrow parochialism, ethnicity and division
among the people that tragically led to the separation of East Pakistan and
continues to threaten the integrity and solidarity of Pakistan;

4

Pakistan fell into the hands of a ruling elite consisting of inept, corrupt and selfish
politicians, fuedals, civil and military bureaucrats, and a host of vested interests that
have plundered Pakistan and have brought it to the brink of disaster;

5

A colonial system of government and the feudal stranglehold on society has
afflicted a dependency syndrome, which has created a chronic debt-dependent
economy that thwarts initiative and self-reliance;

6

Justice and the rule of law have disappeared from all walks of life, due to which, the
state institutions have lost credibility;

7

The common citizen is deprived of access to basic necessities of life such as food,
education, employment, health care, clothing, housing and transportation and has
been made a victim of violence in society, breakdown of law and order,
institutionalized corruption, tyranny of police and other government departments;

8

The liberation of Jammu and Kashmir remains an unrealised goal of the Pakistan
Movement; and

9

Pakistan stands at the threshold of an economic disaster, breakdown of institutions,
collapse of governance, social disorder, desperation and disillusionment.

Therefore:
We have established a political party to mobilize people to lift Pakistan from its present
state of despair, and to set it on the path of unity, solidarity, social justice and prosperity.
