Whenever I hear the name “Quaid-e-Azam”, I feel the dignity of Pakistan and Islam. There is a Hadith of Rasool-Allah Peace be upon him that the recognition of the friend of Allah is that whenever you see him you will remind Allah. Same case is here with Mohammad Ali Jinnah that whenever I read or think about Mohammad Ali Jinnah I praise to Allah that with His blessings the Muslims of Subcontinent found a leader who leads them and his efforts were only for the right and protection of Muslims. His whole life was just for a cause and the cause was Dignity and freedom of Muslim ummah.
When Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah joined the Indian National Congress he put his efforts to build good relations among Muslims and other communities especially with Hindus. Because of this Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah was known as the ambassador of Hindu Muslim unity. He was the member of Indian National Congress at the same time Dr. Allama Mohammad Iqbal request him to join All India Muslim League. He was the only man who was equally respected for Hindu and Muslims at the same time. He tried to bring peace and trust among Hindu and Muslims but when He realized that the leadership of Indian National Congress is not committed to the cause of trust building and equality with Muslims then he left the Congress and committed himself to the cause of freedom because he knew that Muslims of India cannot survive in those circumstances when Hindu will rule over them and he will not allow the Muslims to perform their religious duties. Moreover Hindu majority will not allow the Muslims in law making process and they will also stop them to join Government services.
Once he said, “we are different creatures. There is nothing inlife that join us together”.
When Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah became the president of All India Muslim league then this political party dramatically gain the popularity and Muslims of India wakeup with thrill and faith. There was only one cause and the cause was FREEDOM, not only from British rule but from Hindus as well. Magnetic personality of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah got the Muslims together under a single flag of All India Muslim league and they start the political effort for the freedom. Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah lead the party and he put the pressure on British government that they have to divide subcontinent into two countries where Muslim and Hindu both can live according to their religion, customs and according to their believes. Once the Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah said, “Pakistan came into being at that time when first Hindu of Subcontinent accept the Islam”. Which means Hindu and Islam are the opposite of each other So how is this possible that Muslim and Hindu will live together.
In 1940 Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah addressed to the great meeting of Muslims in Lahore where Pakistan Resolution get passed in which Muslim of India clearly demand the separate state. After the Pakistan resolution Muslim league got the momentum and Quaid-e-Azam spent all his time at his desk writing to Muslim League workers in all part of India. He started the Newspaper “DAWN” which was the first newspaper own by any Muslim so Muslims welcome him and also this newspaper became the source to spread message of All India Muslim league.
Because of the efforts of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah All India Muslim League get 99% Muslim reserved seats in India and Also they were able to form there government in Muslim majority providences. This was the great achievement for Quaid-e-Azam and for the Muslims.
Throughout this efforts Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah was very sick. But he refuse to take his doctor’s advice to take rest. He always said “I have work to do”. His struggles finally paid off and on 14th august 1947 Pakistan came into being.
After the partition of subcontinent Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah addressed to the nation in Karachi and he told his people: ‘You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or any other places of worship in this state of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste. We are all citizen and equal citizens of one State’ and these are teachings of our beloved Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon Him) that Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah remind us.
