PAKISTAN : THE LAND I CALL MY HOME
Pakistan is where I live, breathe, eat, sleep …it’s the place I call my own, my home.
Where ever I go I proudly claim myself as a Pakistani citizen and I have every reason to be proud of being a Pakistani. My country has it all…everything that a piece of land requires to call itself a nation ..a country.
PAKISTAN means PURE LAND..a land formed for a pure religion ISLAM, for a pure nation the MUSLIMS on 14 August 1947 after sacrificing lives of millions and struggles of many. They said that Pakistan does not stand a chance of survival yet it survived and it still is surviving even after all the terrible things like terrorism, earthquakes and floods, it is still standing its grounds and still moving on and it will continue to move forward because it is a land of miracles, it has Allah’s blessings with it along with the prayers of its people..THE PAKISTANI’S.

Pakistan has friendly relations with its neighbouring countries (Iran,Afghanistan, China and India). Although its conflicts with India on various issues exist but it has never hesitated in terms of extending a hand of friendship.
Although it is a country facing challenging problems like poverty, illiteracy, corruption, terrorism and political issues, the hustle and bustle of life continues and I am positive that it is almost time that things will start changing and my beloved country will develop into a country envied by allJ
