Speaking to a large public gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan, Imran asserted that today’s Pakistan did not match the dream of Allama Iqbal or Quaid-e-Azam’s vision.

The Quaid, he said, had dreamt of a country where all citizens, including all minorities, had equal rights. According to Imran, the Quaid wanted to establish Pakistan based on the model state of Madina, which was the first social welfare state in the world.

Pakistan, Imran said, must choose between dishonour and dignity.

Trending on Twitter were the following opinions:

The PTI chief on Sunday also said that there was a dire need to depoliticise the police force. After coming into power, he said he would introduce reforms in police department so justice could be served quickly. Citing K-P police as a model, Imran said no case of extrajudicial killing had been reported in the province, while the situation in Punjab and Sindh was alarming.
