Patriotism means love for the homeland from the core of the heart. Instinctively human beings love the abode where they are born and brought up. Therefore, love of country is natural and common trait of the people living in one country.
Patriotism is a positive characteristic which urges man to do everything for the sake of his country. It makes him perform his duties honestly and devotedly. Patriotism makes him a good citizen, who is always ready to serve his nation with the best of his talents. A good citizen is always ready to sacrifice his belongings and even life for his nation. Patriotism is a sacred passion, which makes the nation really strong and honorable. It is our duty to keep this passion alive in our hearts.
The only way to serve Pakistan is that we must be sincere with our jobs and duties. It will be a tributary of the excellence finally contributing to the good of nation. Keeping our personal goals behind, we must put the matters of national interest before us as the national interest is always supereme. Country is not just a piece of land or only the collection of mountains, rivers and valleys. It is the heritage of our dreams, aspirations and our great religion. We love Pakistan because it is the center of our hopes and future dreams. It is the land of our following generation. We must try to make it strong and undefeatable castle of Islam.
Pakistan can be a really strong country, when the people of Pakistan are patriots in the true sense of the word. Love your country and it will shower all the blessings on you in return.

Patriotism Versus Internationalism
Patriotism Alone is not Enough
“Who is here so vile that will not love his country?”
“You’ll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race.”
Patriotism means love of one’s native land. Just as we love our father and mother, so we love land of our birth. This feeling is called patriotism.
Water Scott has rightly said:
Breather there the man with soul so dead,
Who to himself hath never said:
“This is my own, my native land.”
But we find some people who love themselves more than they love their parents. They think of their own happiness and comforts before the comforts and happiness of their father and mother. Similarly, some people love their country less and love themselves more. Such people are selfish.
This should not be the case. It shows an unfeeling heart and a selfish nature. Just as it is the first duty of a child to love his home, so also it is the first duty of every one to love the land of his birth. A man owes much to the land of his birth. Just as he grows up in the lap of his mother, he is brought from making any sacrifice for his mother land when he is called upon to do so. Who can forget the great sacrifices of Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chander Bose, Lala Lajpat Rai, Gandhi, Nehru and other freedom fighters who sacrificed their all for the freedom of their motherland? Such patriots are honoured very where in all ages.
Patriotism is of two kinds: the first is a healthy one and should be encouraged while the second one is of an undesirable kind and should be condemned. Healthy patriotism teaches us to love out county with all our heart and to do everything in our power to make our country happy, great and glorious. IT tells us to build our glory on the ruins and suffering of other nations. The first kind of patriotism is good for our country and for the world The second kind of patriotism is bad for the world and will, sooner or later, be bad for the country that oppresses others.
It is our duty to love the land of our birth. It is also our duty not to hate other nations. We must try to cultivate a healthy type of patriotism and to devote ourselves whole heartedly to the uplift and prosperity of our own country. We must not have the perverted notion of patriotism that believes in the dictum : “My country, right or wrong.” Most of the crimes against humanity have been committed by people having this type of fanatic patriotism. Patriotism must go hand in hand with internationalism. One should never forget one’s duty towards humanity in general. Such patriotism as encourages narrow, parochial fanaticism is a bad type of patriotism which has no place in a fastly progressing civilization of today.
