>  The establishment of Pakistan is the the result of continuous struggle and enormous sacrifices and dynamic leadership of Quaid-e-Azam and the trust of his followers in his high-powered leadership. Youth was the most trusted companion of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.This youth was not born in a single day. It was awakened, polished and rekindled in Aligarh Muslim University (AMU). These students of Aligarh were educated and self-conscious. They possessed higher degree of respect for women, dignity, good behavior, enthusiasm, service to humanity, higher values of integrity and dedication. Sir Syed Ahmad Khan took his students out from abyss of disintegration and rekindled the spirit of renaissance in them. Aligarh University produced intellectuals like Maulana Muhammad Ali, Maulana Shaukat Ali, Hasrat Mohani, Syed Hussain, Rafi Ahmad Kidwai, Abdur Rab Nishtar and Maulvi Abdul Haq aka Baba-e-Urdu. Freedom fighters included  Zakir Hussain who became the President of India, Ayub Khan, President of Pakistan and Nawabzada Liaqat Ali Khan, first Prime Minister of Pakistan Sir Syed Ahmad Khan lived only two decades of his life in AMU but his students with immaculate character took the lead role in politics and ultimately reached to their finally destination “Pakistan”.Aligarh injected a spirit of freedom and nationalism among the masses. The determined youth responded on the call of Quaid-e-Azam who expressed his great love for youth and always obliged them for their services. The untiring struggle of the youth resulted in mobilizing the people for Muslim league. They conveyed the message of separate homeland in every corner of subcontinent with their powerful speeches and writings. The students worked as national ambassadors in changing public opinion regarding Pakistan outside subcontinent. Youth proved themselves as the personal body-guards of Quaid-e-Azam on several occasions. It was an annual meeting at Lahore in 1940, during the clash between Muslims and Khaksars it was feared that Khaksars might try to harm Quaid-e-Azam. The students escorted Quaid-e-Azam from the place of meeting on the risk of their own lives. Jinnah used to say that students belonged to him and he belonged to students.  He advised his “arsenal”not to quite their efforts until the accomplishment of their goal. In his message to youth he said:
>
> “ Remember that you have to take the reins of what is being done today in your hands tomorrow. Have you therefore trained yourself, disciplined yourself and equipped yourself enough to shoulder the responsibilities that will fall on you? If not, go ahead do it today. This is the proper time and i wish you every success”
>
> On December 28, 1947 Quaid-e-Azam addressed the nation:
>
> “ I have no doubt that with unity, faith and discipline we will compare with any nation of the world. You must make up your minds now. we must sink individualism and petty jealousies and make up our minds to serve the people with honesty and faithfulness. We are passing through a period of fear, danger and menace. We must have faith, unity and discipline”.

> “Faith,Unity and Discipline”- the lesson which is taught in the school days is forgotten when the students reach in their youth. If we compare the youth of Pakistan Movement in 1947 with the youth ofAzaadi MarchorInqalab MarchorNew Pakistan, there is no comparison in fact. They have no purpose, no dignity, no respect and no humanity. Power of youth can not be denied for any cause. It is up to the leaders how they can utilize or “exploit” youth for their own ulterior motives. Youth have been hijacked in Pakistan by various political parties. A tug of war have been started between various political parties.Tahir ul Qadri, leader of Pakistan Awaami Tehreek made best use of emotional speeches to hijack youth from all over the country. Imran Khan, a crickter turned politician hijacked the youth on the name of merit, unfair elections and corrupt sitting government. PML (N) hijacked the youth with their laptop schemes, loan schems, fee reimbursements etc. The slogans of the leaders becomes the slogans of youth. There is no noble cause, no unity and no discipline of course.

> where does Pakistan stands?? Government is trying their best to stop all the so-called Marches, political parties are vying to reach the capital breaking all the hurdles in their way and the dumbfounded youth is responding without thinking.
>
> In the end i want to say to youth:
>
> Have some Mercy on our Motherland!!
>
> struggle is for justified and noble cause.
>
> And do remember Quaid’s words:
>
> “My young friends, i look forward to you as the real makers of misled . Do not be exploited and do not be misled. Create among st yourself complete unity and solidarity. Set an example of what youth can do. Your main occupation should be in fairness to yourself, to your parents and in fairness to your state. So devote your attention to your studies. If you filter away your energies , you will always regret”.
