Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the country’s founder, passed away 74 years ago today, just 11 months after the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent won their independence. Pakistan is commemorating this event.
Jinnah spent his entire life fighting for a homeland specifically for Muslims, but he was unable to live to see his beloved nation flourish and he died.
In his speech on the anniversary, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that “the nation pays respect to Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah for his tireless effort, vision, and leadership abilities in the fight for the rights of Muslims of the subcontinent.”
Without the guidance of Quaid-e-Azam, he claimed, the aspiration of Muslims for an independent state would never have materialized
