ISLAMABAD: State Minister for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has directed PTV and Pakistan Broadcasting Corporations to refresh the historic and epic struggle for freedom through a series of short snippets starting on March 18 and concluding on Independence day August 14.

The campaign aims at reliving the historic events that have shaped the future for Pakistan through the struggle of Partition and gave impetus to a movement and the spirit and determination that galvanized the Muslims of the Sub-continent to win their freedom.

She also advised both the organisations to reflect Pakistan's proud geographical diversity as well as highlighting the transformational changes that have taken place or continue to define a future headed towards greater prosperity, such as institutional development, economic revival and progress including CPEC, agriculture, women empowerment, arts and culture, sports and defence, particularly the measures taken to make it invincible.

She was presiding over a meeting held in regards to firming up steps and measures by the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage for celebrating the Pakistan Day in a befitting manner.

The minister directed that all these themes be highlighted through special live transmissions, programmes, dramas, youth shows and special lyrical compositions.

The minister also invited the general public to witness the making of Pakistan and the journey towards its cherished goals through the programmes that the PTV and PBC would be telecasting and broadcasting respectively.

She said Pakistan Day carries great significance in the annals of history as Muslims of Indian sub-continent were accepted, for the first time as a separate nation on 23rd March, 1940.

She said that Lahore Resolution represented the crystallisation of the dream for Pakistan which turned the abstract into reality.

She also stressed the need to highlight the role of the heroes and iconic personalities of the freedom movement in the creation of Pakistan as well as those citizens who have contributed towards the development and prosperity of the country.
