GUJAR KHAN: Rejecting the talk of despondency, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf Tuesday said Pakistanis know how to defend every inch of their country and even can sacrifice their lives for this purpose.

“There is no need of any despondency. No nation is more brave, tolerant, courageous and struggling than Pakistanis. Each one from the brave Pakistani nation knows how to defend every inch of their country and sacrifice their lives for this purpose,” Ashraf said while addressing a large public meeting in his hometown.

The prime minister said, “no power in the world can frighten us, as we are brave people and know how to defend our soil and its integrity. This is also evident from the past.”

He referred to the recent attack at Minhas airbase in Kamra and paid rich tribute to the country's soldiers for eliminating the attacking terrorists.

Pervez Ashraf said the government, people and the armed forces of Pakistan were fully cognizant of the defence of their motherland, adding, the people of Pakistan always stood united in any difficult hour.

The prime minister said all the problems and challenges faced by the country can be resolved only through democracy and democratic system, as democracy represents the will of masses.

“Democracy, democracy and more democracy provides solution of every problem. It is the cure of all wounds and ills. Democracy represents the will of Pakistani people,” he remarked.
