God Bless Pakistan Rally!
Tomorrow · 8:00am - 8:00pm
Location Sialkot Pakistan
More Info This rally is to offer tribute to our great leaders Mr. S.P. Singha (Sataya Parkash) and Mr. Fazal Elahi. Without them Punjab would not have been a part of Pakistan. It is to salute all of their efforts and endeavors which resulted as PAKISTAN.
Mr. Sataya Parkash Singha:
SP Singha was born on April 26, 1893, in Pasrur. After getting record marks in his matriculation examination, he joined FC College in Lahore and graduated from S...t. Stephen’s College in Delhi. He returned to Lahore to become the Registrar of the Punjab University. His pioneering work on improving the examination system won him many admirers, and he was made a Dewan Bahadar.
In 1936, he became a leader of the All-India Christian Association and won the 1937 elections to the Punjab Assembly. Later in the Sir Khizer Hayat Tiwana government, he was elected the Punjab Assembly speaker. Thus history had placed him in a unique position when the vote for Pakistan was taken in the Punjab Assembly. The Resolution for Pakistan was short by three votes. Speaker SP Singha urged his Christian members to vote for Jinnah, which they willingly did. Even then it was a tied vote. After much though, and tension in the house, SP Singha voted for Pakistan.
You are welcome to join this rally. The rally will start from Christian Town Sialkot and its route includes all the main areas of Sialkot. Assemblies of God Church is the host of this event. On behalf of Pastor Sumbal Shahzad Khokhar (Pastor Incharge) , I welcome you to come and celebrate independence day with us. We have planned to sing Christian Hymns, songs and Patriotic songs with the A.O.G. choir. Let us be together on August 14, 2010 and be a source of blessing for each other and our motherland.
Thank you very much.
