23 March 1940 ( Pakistan Resolution )

On 23 rd March 1940 the basis of our identity was decided. On this day All India Muslim League Gathered for there annual meeting in Minto Park (Iqbal Park). Great leaders Liaqat Ali khan and M Ali Jinnah gave speeches of how diverse the Muslims and the Hindus were. Also ideas like (two nation theory) presented earlier by Allama Iqbal and Sir Syed Ahmad Khan were revised. This day marked the beginning of the struggle which led to the creation of Pakistan. Our ancestors achieved Pakistan through dedication, determination and a dream to follow the truth. On 14 august 1947 they succeeded in creating Pakistan and altering the course of history. This marked a new chapter in the world politics and till this day forces exist which are not satisfied by the existence of Pakistan. Creation of Pakistan also marked the existence of the first of the two countries created for religion. We as Pakistanis wonder if we really are following the vision we were created for. This web page is also an effort by jack and I to revive principals that defined us on 23rd March 1940. I think being a Pakistani is not a identity its a state of mind.

I will write a blog on the personal accounts of people who created Pakistan in near future so there memories could be preserved.

Lahore Attack: Salute to all Martyrs

This post is not the normal article that I write nor is it about who I think is involved in the attacks. We here at Anci's Vantage Point want to salute all those who lost their lives in the Lahore attack on the Sri Lankan team on the 3rd of March.
I, Jack, am myself from Lahore and the Liberty roundabout is my route from college to my house. Luckily I had decided to skip college on the 3rd. 
Anci and I are very proud of the brave policemen who sacrificed their lives in order to protect their guests, the Sri Lankans. There are reports that security was not foolproof but we will discuss that later. 
The picture above is of the Traffic Warden who was gunned down by the terrorists. Another angle of the picture and the roundabout is in the picture on the right (please forgive my camera for the hazy picture) which I shot from my mobile phone.
We are proud of the people listed below:
  • Tanveer Iqbal (Traffic Warden) - in the pictures above
  • Faisal Rasheed (Punjab Police)
  • 5 other Policemen of Punjab Police's Elite Force
  • Zafar Khan (The driver of the officials van)
  • Mehr Khalil (Driver of the players bus)
We would also like to thank the Sri Lankans, for coming to Pakistan amid security threats and pressure from India, and the match officials. And not to forget Mr. Ahsan Raza, the umpire who was injured seriously in the attack. We pray for his health and hope that he regains fitness soon.

If you know the names of any of the other five policemen please post them in the comments.
