Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, 137th Birthday

Quaid-i-Azam your soul could no longer be able to find your Ziarat residency which we exploded on 15th June 2013

Dear Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah let me start writing this blog with regretful eyes as we are going to celebrate your 137th birth anniversary on 25th December 2013 in a condition when your soul could no longer be able to find your Ziarat residency which we exploded on 15th June 2013. We couldn’t save your legacy same as we lost East Pakistan in 1971. At the moment, what we are disintegrated, divided into sects and castes. Religious harmony and patience for each other has gone from us. Communal violence is on peak. We have forgotten your motto “Unity, faith and discipline”. The word honesty looks odd in society where nepotism and jobber y became the part of life. Gone are the days when we were united as a nation and have self esteem internationally. Children like Nabeela Rehman avoid schooling and craft fear instead of happiness due to fear of drones.  Currently we are in a state where examples of Fraternity, justice and equity found only in Pakistan studies books.

Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was as a great Muslim leader of 20th century tribute given to him by Jaswnat Singh ex- finance minister of India. Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah conceived Pakistan as a welfare economy state in the right Islamic spirit. He drew inspirations from the teachings of Holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He wanted to have an economy based on justice and equity. He wanted to have a state without any discrimination where everybody can live with ease and contentment. The state based on the golden principles of fraternity, liberty and justice. He set the vision for Pakistan after having endorsed that he had no patience for nepotism and jobbery in newly born state of Pakistan. He always focused on socio- economic development of Muslim community and emphasis it’s not been possible unless having modern education during his address in Gujarat Muslim educational Conference on 14th January 1945, he described  education as a  matter of life and death for  the nation . He encouraged the people of Pakistan and especially to youth for collective good and put forward a motto, “Unity, faith and discipline”.

Allama Dr .Mohammad Iqbal was the person who more than any other thinker influenced his thoughts. Quaid-i-Azam regarded Iqbal as his leader, friend, and philosopher who was the main force behind the national renaissance of Muslim India. In his letter of May, 1937, Iqbal advocated that social democracy is consistent with the legal principles of Islam had the answer to social and economic problems faced by the Muslims of India.

Quaid was a great champion of peace and international amity. He emphasis on the free play of the principles of Islamic social justice in Pakistan. Unlike the communist thinkers he did not ignore the problems of production and unlike the capitalist thinkers he gave a basic importance to the problem of distribution. In his 11th August speech he categorically described about status of citizenship of Pakistan “You may belong to any religion or caste or creed-that has nothing to do with the business of the state”.

In current scenario we truly need a leader like Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah which has the ability to integrate us as a nation and guide us to get rid of current rulers and take out the nation from the quagmire. In the end I would like to quote Iqbal as he truly said “For a thousand years the narcissus has been lamenting its blindness with great difficulty the one with true vision is born in the garden”.
