Mr Jinnah envisioned Pakistan to be a democracy, not a theocracy. He said, “In any case Pakistan is not going to be a theocratic State to be ruled by priests [mullahs] with a divine mission. We have many non-Muslims including Hindus, Christians, and Parsees, but they are all Pakistanis.”
Imran Khan (prime minister in waiting) vowed to realize Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Iqbal's vision for Pakistan. In his message to the nation on the occasion of Independence Day, he tweeted, "14 Aug 2018: On this Independence Day, I am filled with the greatest optimism. Despite our grave economic crises, due to corruption and cronyism, I know if we are united in our resolve, we will rise to the challenge and Pakistan will become the great nation envisaged by our Quaid and Iqbal."Imran urged the nation to celebrate August 14 with full fervour, "especially as we are now moving towards Naya Pakistan & reclaiming Jinnah's vision InshaAllah," he had tweeted. During the recent general elections, the Pakistanis had the golden opportunity to get rid of the ongoing status quo or else stay stuck in ‘quagmire of muddy political past.’ The said election has strengthened the democratic norms in Pakistan.On the Election Day, the turnout was impressive: Approximately, 30 million new voters had exercised their right to vote for the first time. The educated voters preferred going forward together to a peaceful political stability; they rejected the corrupt elite and elected the right candidates. They are well aware that a positive change would fetch new opportunities leading to economic well being of all on equality basis regardless of creed, culture or colour.
