Quaid-e-Azam's last speech by Zaid Zaman Hamid

For those who say Quaid e Azam wanted a secular Pakistan, let us give another slap on their face once again. This is the last speech of Quaid on the occasion of opening up of State Bank of Pakistan in 1948, just 2 months before his death. This was his dying declaration and his last will to the nation. He wanted an Islamic economic model and clearly stated that the world is now on the brink of disaster due to the modern economic system (interest based, banking, paper currency and fractional reserve). This is the model we will establish now in Pakistan InshAllah. The model of Quran, Sunnah, Iqbal and Quaid. Secular liberals can go to hell.

Quaid said:

"I shall watch with keenness the work of your Research Organization in evolving banking practices compatible with Islamic ideas of social and economic life. The economic system of the West has created almost insoluble problems for humanity and to many of us it appears that only a miracle can save it from disaster that is not facing the world. It has failed to do justice between man and man and to eradicate friction from the international field. On the contrary, it was largely responsible for the two world wars in the last half century. The Western world, in spite of its advantages, of mechanization and industrial efficiency is today in a worse mess than ever before in history. The adoption of Western economic theory and practice will not help us in achieving our goal of creating a happy and contended people. We must work our destiny in our own way and present to the world an economic system based on true Islamic concept of equality of manhood and social justice. We will thereby be fulfilling our mission as Muslims and giving to humanity the message of peace which alone can save it and secure the welfare, happiness and prosperity of mankind. May the Sate Bank of Pakistan prosper and fulfill the high ideals which have been set as its goal"
