Drama stresses need to promote national unity

A scene from the Hum Aik Hain at RAC on Friday.

RAWALPINDI: The Rawalpindi Arts Council (RAC) arranged a stage play Hum aik Hain in connection with the 138th birth anniversary of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

The drama was written and directed by Aslam Mughal with Saeed Anwar, Naeem Bubba, Naeem Tota, Reha Yousuf, Babar Abbas, Mehwish, Aslam Mughal, Imran, Khalil Noor and Sunny as the cast.

The drama depicted the story of Pakistan from the pre-partition days to present. It started with a scene of the Hindu-Muslim society where Muslims were not allowed to slaughter the cow. Skirmishes between Hindus and Muslim were a routine over the issue. Then a movement for the separate homeland was launched by the Muslims under the dynamic leadership of the Quaid which resulted in the creation of Pakistan.

Millions of families migrated to Pakistan in a very miserable condition. In 1965, India declared a war against Pakistan during which the nation showed an unprecedented unity.

The drama also highlighted the current situation with the nation fighting against terrorism. It showed that in the pre-partition era the Muslims fought the Hindus for their survival but now they were faced with the menace of terrorism. The drama ended with a note that there was a dire need for unity of the nation to flush out terrorism.
