Quaid-e-Azam Day: Pakistan honors 147 years of visionary leadership

The 147th birth anniversary of the founder of Pakistan, Pakistan’s founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah is being celebrated on Monday (today) with traditional zeal and enthusiasm across the country.

Mohammad Ali Jinnah played a pivotal role as the liberator of British India’s Muslims.

Born on December 25, 1876, in Karachi, Quaid-e-Azam completed his early education and later acquired a law degree from London. After a brief stint, he entered the political arena by joining the Indian National Congress.

Whether it was dealing with the Communal Award or the Cabinet Mission Plan, leading the Quit India Movement, or advocating for a separate homeland, Quaid-e-Azam’s political astuteness was evident. His vision for an independent state for Muslims echoed across the nation.

Quaid-e-Azam navigated the complex political landscape from the formulation of the Pakistan Resolution to the establishment of Pakistan on August 14, 1947.

He assumed the role of Pakistan’s first Governor-General.

Urdu professor Dr Tauseef stated that Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s dream for Pakistan is contingent upon the practical implementation of his ideas. The older generation in Karachi fondly reminisced about the days when Quaid’s speeches resonated far beyond. 

Quaid-e-Azam’s unwavering efforts for the rights of Muslims and the establishment of a separate homeland took a toll on his health.

One year after the creation of Pakistan, on September 11, 1948, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the true architect of the nation, departed from this world.
