President Message on International Youth Day

12 August 2007

It is my proud privilege to greet the youth of Pakistan and the world on the occasion of International Youth Day.

To the Pakistani youth, I would like to say that I believe in you and your abilities. The future of Pakistan rests in your hands. You have it in you to be remarkable human beings and inspiring citizens of the country. The following Chinese proverb provides the secret of life in how honest intentions and hard work can lead to fulfillment of dreams.

Sow a thought, reap an action. Sow an action, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap a character. Sow a character, and reap a destiny. Life is just as simple as the words above convey, please do not let any one dissuade you from this fact. I will draw your attention to an ever-inspiring message of Allama Iqbal.

Amal sy -indagi bunti hai, junnat bhi, jahannum bhi Yeh khaki a~ni fitrat mein, na noori hai, na naari hai. May your families, friends and fellow citizens feel your presence to be source of strength and support in their lives. I would leave you with an advice to help you in the years to come. It is important to have a balanced well-rounded personality, which encompasses the following:

  • Intellectual Development: You must be able to go beyond academic excellence. Acquiring a broad base of knowledge.
  • Moral Development: Honesty, truthfulness, humility and contentment from its pillars.
  • Physical Development: A healthy mind and body are vital for an overall balance in one’s personality.
  • Social Development: Your personality should be such that you enjoy respect of your superiors, peers and subordinates. This requires a balanced, harmonious interaction with each.

I represent the going generation while you belong to the coming generation. You are the future of Pakistan. My strongest wish and desire is to hand over the baton to you while Pakistan is on the ascendant and rising Insha Allah, I will do it. I have no doubt that you then steer the country to future glory.

May Allah Almighty to be our Protector and Guide. Aameen!
