A person with unparalleled talent and excellent character is a hero. There are many prominent figures in the history of the world with such characteristics. These people have earned a name for themselves by making valuable contributions to their respective fields. Quid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah stands alone among the tribe of these great personalities.
Stanley Wolpert in his Book Jinnah of Pakistan pays a glowing tribute to the Quaid in these words:
“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.”
Quaid-e-Azam was born in Karachi on 25 December 1876. He got his early education from Karachi and went to England for higher studies. After doing his bar-at-law, he returned home and started practising law. He joined All India National Congress for his political career. He soon realized that the Congress was only working for the interests of Hindus. He quit the Congress and joined All India Muslim League.
Quid-e-Azam observed that the Muslims of the subcontinent were subjected to injustice and discrimination by the Hindus and the British. He started advocating for the political rights of the Muslims and demanded a separate homeland for them. His demand was endorsed by his contemporary political leaders of the Muslims. He met many British leaders and tried to convince them that the Hindu and the Muslims could not live together peacefully. He pointed out that these two nations have different religions, cultures, and languages.
Through his intelligence, arguments, struggle, dedication, and commitment Quid-e-Azam achieved many historic victories. The Muslims were allowed to take part in the elections and their due political rights were not snubbed by the Hindus and the British. But the demand and struggle of Quid-e-Azam for a separate homeland remained un-shattered. He mobilised the youth from all around the subcontinent and urged them to fight for their due rights. The British rulers eventually surrendered and announced the partition of the subcontinent.
All this struggle of Quid-e-Azam was for the oppressed Muslims of the subcontinent. He selflessly fought for the rights his people and never preferred his personal gain to national interests. He founded Pakistan and created history. We get so much to learn from the political and personal life of Quid-e-Azam. We can make build a strong and more prosperous Pakistan by following his golden principle of unity, faith, and discipline.
