Social media pays rich tribute to Quaid-e-Azam on his 71st death anniversary

Quaid-e-Azam’s comprehensive vision on the Hindu-Muslim divide led to the creation of a separate homeland, saving millions of Muslims from social injustices. The nation, divided on various lines, stands united in hailing the struggles and sacrifices of Quaid-e-Azam in the creation of Pakistan

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.

Pakistanis including various politicians and celebrities posted heartfelt messages for Mohammad Ali Jinnah on Twitter. Many prayed for the stability and security of Pakistan in the face on internal and external threats.
