Muslims are a nation

Musalmans are a nation according to any definition of a nation, and they must have their homeland, their territory and their state. We wish to live in peace and harmony with our neighbours as a free and independent people. We wish our people to develop to the fullest our spiritual, cultural, economic, social, and political life in a way that we think best, and in consonance with our own ideals and according to the genius of our people.

Presidential address by Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, 27th session, All India
Muslim League, Lahore, 22-24 March 1940.


  1. Musalmaans are a symbol of Universalism...

    and our message is Universal Brotherhood..

    I hope the that the day will come when our true spirit of universalism surrounds the world.

  2. But now how many of us are following the principles of Quaid by the way? thats why Muslims specially we the Paksitanis are insulted most. Most of the densely populated Muslim countries are under the clutches of so called US war-against-terrorism!
    Why dont we stand against all of our enemieS? why dont we unite to say that Muslims are not terrorists!
