The Founder Of Pakistan
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, was born in Karachi on December 25, 18876. His father, Poonjah Jinnah, was a famous merchant. He received his early education in Karachi. On the advice of one of his father's friends, he was sent abroad for higher education because he was a promising and intelligent boy.
So he reached England for higher studies. There he joined the institution of ''Lincoln's Inn.'' The reason for this choice was that the names of famous law-givers of the world were written on its main gate and among those names, the name of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) was written also. He distinguished himself over there and returned to India as a barrister.
He became a member of the Indian National Congress. He was a great supporter of Hindu-Muslim Unity. He served the Congress for many years. The ''Jinnah Hall'' in Bombay still reminds us his great services in this respect. But the attitude of the Hindus discouraged him. He left the Congress and joined the Muslim League, which under his bold leadership became the most powerful political party of the Muslims. He fought for the rights of the Muslims and was called the Quaid-e-Azam by them. He tried his level best to bring the Indian Muslims together. He asked them to unite and fight against the foreign rulers.
In 1940, he presented the demand to divide the sub-continent into two separate countries. India and Pakistan. It is known as Pakistan Resolution. He went on working for the independence of the Indian Muslims. He faced the opposition of the Hindus and the English very bravely.
As a result of his endless efforts, Pakistan came into being on August 14, 1947. He was appointed the first Governor General of Pakistan. He worked day and night for building up the largest Muslim empire. But hard work told upon his health and he died on September 11, 1948. The whole nation mourned his death. His tomb has been built in Karachi. His motto is ''Faith, Discipline and Unity.''
