Description

“My Pakistan is the nostalgic journey of a true Pakistani who fought all odds to serve with humility the great cause for which Pakistan came into existence: Freedom to live, breathe, prosper, practice, laugh, and most of all keep the faith alive to learn from our past to make our present better and our future brighter. Bishop Malik has spread this faith through his book, from the majestic Himalayan Mountains to the serene Arabian sea with patriotism, conviction, loyalty and an unmatchable love of a Pakistani to Pakistan!” At the time of Partition, the Christian community reposed its trust in Mr. Jinnah’s perception of Pakistan and put its full weight behind the All-India Muslim League in their struggle for independence.

Bishop Malik’s story is a kaleidoscopic account of the expectations of minorities connected with the creation of Pakistan, their experience in the new homeland, their concerns as a community, and above all their aspirations as patriotic Pakistanis. All this can help set our course for the future, as envisioned by the Father of the Nation.
