Pakistan, a land of purity, a land of true colors, a land of sacrifices and a land of freedom and belonging to a nation based on Islamic principles and ideals is a great attribute and highly honored and proud to be a part of it. My Pakistan gave me the strength to stand, air to breathe as an independent nation, the soil to walk and especially the freedom to speak.
A Proud Pakistani itself says it all. The sovereignty, principality and impeccable pure land bestowed upon us by Allah almighty under the dynamic leadership, passionate skills and efforts of selfless personalities rises Pakistan on the map of the world. The uncountable series of successes with a great mindset is the embodiment and living example that compelled me to say that I am a proud Pakistani.
Being a Pakistani makes me to realize and witness the measures of true being. It makes me feel that I am from that nation which has its own morals and characters. I am proud to say that I am from a country where people are passionate and dignified with a great mindset. The powerful zeal and constancy of Pakistan running the four corners of the world with unbeatable enthusiasm and raising the Green Flag high in the air.
