The nation is paying rich tribute to Pakistan’s founding father Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah on his 71st death anniversary. Social media users posted messages on various platforms commemorating his sacrifices and struggles of achieving a separating homeland for the Muslim population. They recalled Quaid-e-Azam’s determination to establish a truly democratic country, serving equal rights for all its citizens and minorities particularly.
His vision has been reinforced with unprecedented popularity following India’s revocation of Article 370 and 35-A dissolving the special status of Kashmir, which according to the claims of Pakistan government is a stroke played by the BJP-led Indian government for the ethnic cleansing of the Muslim population in the valley.
Quaid-e-Azam had declared Kashmir the jugular vein of Pakistan and visited four times to valley in his lifetime.
Quaid-e-Azam was the staunch proponent of two-nation theory, he anticipated the adversaries Muslims would have faced, being the minority, following the withdrawal of British rulers from sub-continent, under Indian rule. Quaid-e-Azam’s apprehensions have resurfaced with the rising religious intolerance towards Muslims in India. Cases of abuse and persecution of the Muslim population have spiked since right-wing Hindu nationalist party BJP has firmly rooted itself in the center.
