A great man is one who serves humanity heart and soul. But no man is great who is great only in his life time. The test of greatness is the page of history. History is replete with the noble deeds of men whose sole and sacred aim of life was to help and guide their fellow men. We read and recall, commemorate and commend the names of great scientists, artists, philosophers, politicians, poets and sages whose tireless and selfless efforts brought comfort and peace to the suffering humanity. They die but their death makes them immortal because they live in our hearts. Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah is one of them. Quaid-e-Azam was born in Karachi on December 25, 1876. After his matriculation, he was sent to England for studying law. He became a bright and brilliant Barrister. He returned to India where he joined the Indian National Congress. He wanted to unite the Hindus and the Muslims against the English so that India could win freedom. But soon he realized that the Hindus were trying to safeguard their own interests negating the interests of Muslim. So he joined All-India-Muslim League to fight for the rights of the Muslim. In his fourteen points he presented the demands of the Muslim of India in detail. The Congress rejected these demands. This made it clear that the Hindus wanted to keep the Muslims in permanent subjugation. Keeping in view the nefarious designs of the Hindus, the Muslim League passed a resolution demanding a separate homeland for the Muslim. Quaid-e-Azam provided the most sincere and dynamic leadership and after a long and hard struggle the Muslim of India succeeded in achieving their goal. The dream of Pakistan became a reality on the 14th of August, 1947. He became the first Governor General of Pakistan. Quaid-e-Azam was a thin and lean man, but he was full of vim and vigor. He was determined, diligent and undaunted. He always stuck o his guns and stooped to none. He had a sharp intellect and a profound political insight. He was not narrow-minded or biased. He was not proud or arrogant. He was against all social evils. He wanted to see Pakistan a peaceful, powerful and prosperous country. He died of September 11, 1948, but his courage, hard work, fearlessness, oratory, fortitude and his services for the Muslim of the Subcontinent will keep him alive in our hearts. But he question is whether we will be able to keep the creation of his dream i. e. Pakistan alive. Seen in the present horrible political and religious scenario it all seems impossible. Men I uniform and the men with beards are the real menace to the integrity, solidarity and sovereignty of Pakistan. Both have a strong desire for unbridled power. To achieve their sole objective one uses the Martial law and the other sectarianism. Quaid-e-Azam was deadly against both dictatorship and theocracy. Let’s then sit together, analyses our attitude and decide whether we need Pakistan or not.
