A nation is an aggregate of individuals living in a particular area having common historical back ground and pursuing common collective interests it is the community of purpose which keeps them united and gives them strength and prosperity. It is the achievement of his higher ideal which makes them forget their individual differences and interests and to work unitedly for the realization of collective national objectives. This welding force in Pakistani community is Islam. It is for the glory and spread of Islam as the best system of life that the Muslims of Pakistan separated themselves from the Hindus. Therefore the secret of our survival and progress lies in holding fast to the rope of Islam. There is greater need of national unity in Pakistan because our powerful neighbour and enemy India has not yet reconciled to our independent existence. There are some other powers who cannot see an ideological state progressing close to their borders. The enemies of Pakistan have always been looking for some opportunity to weaken the national unity in the country and to disintegrate it.
The vital need of the hour is to strengthen our unity as a nation. It can be achieved by projecting the ideological basis for which Pakistan came into existence. Without further loss of time we should introduce Islamic system of life in our country because Islam helps in creating national unity brotherhood and equality. It guarantees social justice and does not allow any kind of exploitation or discrimination. Besides that we should work for the success of democracy and representative government in Pakistan. We can make people patriotic by giving them a sense of participation in the affairs of the government. The provincial governments must be left free from develop their resources and to solve their regional problems freely without any interference from the central government.
Government should take steps to promote mutual understanding and co operation among the people of the four provinces. Urdu is a common national language can play an important role in this connection. It should be made the medium of instruction and the language of courts offices etc. in the whole country. The trade and travel facilities between various provinces should also be provided. Exchange of cultural delegations and study groups of students can also be useful in promoting national unity. The press radio and television can also be helpful in moulding the outlook of the people. If we succeed in creating effective national unity in the country we can meet every challenge to the integrity of our country.
