Punjab Arts Council in collaboration with Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust orgazanised a photo and video exhibition titled “Maah o Saal” based on the history of the Pakistan movement.

Chairperson of the Peace and Cultural Organization Mushaal Hussein Mullick was the chief guest of the opening ceremony.

Mullick said that Pakistan is a miracle of Allah. Under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam, Muslims changed the map of the world by establishing the world's first Islamic state.

She said that the Hurriyat leader and her husband Yasin Mullick is imprisoned in Tihar Jail for the freedom of Occupied Kashmir. "The Kashmiri nation is fighting with one million Indian army. Dozens of Kashmiris are martyred every day, but despite this, there has been no decline in Kashmir's freedom movement. The people of Kashmir are madly in love with the soil of their homeland," she said.

Kashmiris are embracing death with a smile for the love of their country, she said and appreciated the Punjab Arts Council for highlighting the serious problems of Occupied Kashmir.

Naheed Manzoor said that every aspect of the Pakistan movement is very important and covers many stories behind the achievement of this great country, which needs to be continuously introduced to the world.

Director Arts Council Waqar Ahmed said that the exhibition has proved to be a great source of awareness among the public, especially the new generation, about the ideology of Pakistan and the Pakistan Movement. "Today, we should take a pledge that by working hard day and night, we will bring Pakistan to the ranks of the developed countries of the world," he added.

Several book stalls were also set up at the exhibition which was attended by a large number of people.
