The Quaid-i-Azam

Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was born at Karachi on December 25, 1876. His father, Poonja Jinnah, was a rich merchant of Gujarat Kathiawar. He passed his matriculation examination from Karachi. He was sent to England at the suggestion of an English friend of his father. He was only 18, when he went there to study law. He gave a very good account of himself as a student, and returned to India, as a barrister, in 1896. It did not take him long to establish himself as a top-grade lawyer.
He joined the Indian National Congress, and worked day and night as a great supporter of Hindus-Muslim unity. But, to his great disgust heart, he found that every leader was a Hindu at heart, working for Hindu-Raj, under the garb of nationalism. He left the Congress and joined the Muslim League. He fought for the rights of the Muslims and was called the Quaid-i-Azam by them. He won Pakistan, against the wishes of the Hindus and the Sikhs. He became the first Governor-General on the 14th of August, 1947. He worked day and night to make Pakistan great and strong. But hard work told upon his health, and he passed away on the 11th of September, 1948. He was the founder of Pakistan, and the whole nation mourned his death. He was one of the greatest statesmen of his time. May his soul rest in peace!
