A very happy #IndependenceDay to the people of Pakistan. This country was made to live forever and the real strength it derives is from its people. On this day, I pray that may Allah Almighty protect our motherland and entire Muslim Ummah and make their trails easy on them.— Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri (@TahirulQadri) August 14, 2019
