On Sunday, the 74th death anniversary of the nation’s father, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, will be honored across the country with promises to follow his golden principles of unity, faith, and discipline.
The day will begin with special prayers in mosques and other places of worship for the departed soul’s eternal peace and the prosperity of the country.
The Quaid was born in Karachi on September 25, 1876. He received his primary education in the city before moving on to further his education abroad. Jinnah led the All-India Muslim League from 1913 until the establishment of Pakistan on August 14, 1947. Muslims fought for their own country under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam. He then became Pakistan’s first Governor General, a position he kept until his death on September 11, 1948.
To mark the occasion, educational institutions, and political, social, and cultural organizations have planned a variety of programs to shed light on the personality and leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
Quran Khwani and Fateha Khwani will be held at Karachi’s Mazar-e-Quaid. Government officials from all walks of life will pay a visit to the Quaid-e-Azam mausoleum in Karachi to lay a wreath and offer Fateha. On this occasion, Radio Pakistan and Pakistan Television will broadcast special programs to honor Quaid-e-Azam for his unrivaled contributions to Pakistan’s freedom.
