Patriots Pay Tribute to Quaid-e-Azam On His 71st Anniversary

On this day in 1948, Pakistan lost its founding father, Mohammad Ali Jinnah. His efforts to gain independence for the Muslims of the sub-continent earned him the title of Quaid-e-Azam.

There is no power on Earth that can undo Pakistan.

His charismatic personality kept the Muslims of the sub-continent spell-bound whenever he spoke. His call to action united the Muslims to struggle for a separate Muslim state because he was well aware of the Hindutva tactics to treat Muslims as third-grade people.

He dedicated his life to ensuring that the Muslims had their own state where people of other religions could also lead their lives in harmony. It was he who realized Allama Iqbal’s idea of Pakistan.

Famous historian, Stanley Wolpert was all praise for Quaid-e-Azam in his book, Jinnah of Pakistan:

Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.

Jinnah served as the first Governor-General of Pakistan after independence until his death on 11th September 1948.

On his death anniversary, a number of ceremonies are held every year to pay tribute to the Founder of Pakistan. The social media users are tweeting about different aspects of his personality. They are sharing his quotes which are still relevant in every walk of life.

You are free; you are free to go to your temples. You are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion, caste or creed—that has nothing to do with the business of the state.

The hashtags #QuaideAzam and #Jinnah are the top trends on Twitter today.

Share your thoughts on Quaid-e-Azam’s role in Pakistan’s independence.
