"For many, Eid will be not an occasion of such great joy and rejoicing as in Pakistan. Those of our brethren who are minorities in Hindustan may rest assured that we shall never neglect or forget them. Our hearts go out to them, and we shall consider no effort too great to help them and secure their well-being for I recognize that it is the Muslim minority provinces in this sub-continent who were the pioneers and carried the banner aloft for the achievement of our cherished goal of Pakistan. I shall never forget their support, nor I hope the majority provinces in Pakistan will fail to appreciate that they were the pioneers in the vanguard of our historic and heroic struggle for the achievement of Pakistan, which today is an accomplished fact." - Mohammad Ali Jinnah, 18th August 1947 (First Day of Eid)
The father of the Nation, Jinnah,spared a thought for the minorities in India on Eid 1947. Taking note of today's reality let us all show consideration and become more responsible towards minorities in Pakistan on Eid 2012.
