Pakistan National Youth Convention 2024: COAS Stresses Youth's Vital Role, Urges Unity, and National Strength

February 2024

The Pakistan National Youth Convention 2024 took place on January 24, 2024, at the Jinnah Convention Centre, Islamabad. Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar graced the occasion as the Chief Guest, while Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), General Syed Asim Munir, NI (M), was the Guest of Honor. 



Addressing the conference, the Caretaker Prime Minister stated, “We, as a nation, have fought the menace of terrorism most valiantly, offering unparalleled sacrifices.” COAS appreciated the role of the Armed Forces in the fight against terrorism with full commitment and professional excellence, stating, “Pakistan’s successes in the war against terrorism would not have been possible without the participation and support of the youth, who make up 65 percent of our population.” The Prime Minister affirmed that as responsible citizens of Pakistan, we must all reject and collectively fight the vicious propaganda onslaught unleashed against Pakistan in the recent past. Youth can play a constructive role in dealing with this emerging national security challenge, provided they remain focused and fact-check all details through authentic information from state institutions rather than falling prey to propaganda. 



Addressing the conference, COAS underscored that the youth are Pakistan's biggest asset, and all optimism for a brighter future is associated with them. Conveying the message of hope, the COAS asked the youth to shun despondency, referring to the historic role played by the youth in the creation and development of Pakistan. He exhorted them to participate in building the nation through discipline, honest toil, and a genuine quest for knowledge. COAS highlighted the power potential of Pakistan, the demographic dividend, immense mineral wealth, a creative corpus of information technology (IT) literate workforce, and great prospects in agriculture. COAS emphasized the importance of national unity and harmony to overcome multifarious challenges confronted by the country. He recounted the sacrifices made by the nation to counter the menace of terrorism and cautioned against machinations of Pakistan's ill-wishers contributing towards extreme polarization within the society. There can be no progress without internal cohesion. 
COAS quoted the Holy Quran, Allama Iqbal, and Quaid-e-Azam extensively, encouraging the youth to realize their true potential and serve the nation to the best of their abilities. He reaffirmed the resolve of the armed forces to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan against all threats with the help and support of the nation.
