I am seeing some status on Whatsapp and pictures on Facebook in which people are making fun of Quaid-e-Azam by posting a note with a caption that “you should be in our pockets, this and that”. Seriously, it isn’t funny rather an abysmal behaviour to disrespect someone who had left no stone unturned to get this country.
Perchance, that’s why his sister had said when she was maltreated “If brother had known the reality of the people of this country, he wouldn’t have fought for them” and she was right because cold‑ˈeyed people don’t deserve a serious person. We make fun of such people that’s why we are being made fun by these clowns (politicians).
You are making fun of the person about whom different people had said: “Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.” (Prof. Stanley Wolpert, Jinnah of Pakistan (1984).
“Mr Jinnah was great as a lawyer, once great as a Congressman, great as a leader of Muslims, great as a world politician and diplomat, and greatest of all as a man of action, By Mr. Jinnah’s passing away, the world has lost one of the greatest statesmen and Pakistan its life-giver, philosopher and guide.” (Surat Chandra Bose, My Brother (1987), biography by Fatima Jinnah.)
Jinnah is one of the most extraordinary men in history. (Jawaharlal Nehru, first prime minister of India)
Although without Ghandi, Hindustan would still have gained independence and without Lenin and Mao, Russia and China would still have endured Communist revolution, without Jinnah there would have been no Pakistan in 1947. (John Biggs-Davison)
An outstanding figure of this century not only in India, but in the whole world. (Dr. Kailashnath Katju, the West Bengal Governor in 1948)
The most important man in Asia. (Beverley Nichols, the author of `Verdict on India’)
Jinnah contributed more than any other man to Pakistan’s survival. (Richard Symons)
Jinnah is Incorruptible and Brave’ (Gandhi – Interview with Louis Fischer).
A most accomplished lawyer, outstanding amongst Indian lawyers, and a fine constitutionalist. (Sir Stafford Cripps).
Mr. Jinnah was one of the handsomest men I have ever seen; he combined the clear cut, almost Grecian features of the West with oriental grace and movement. (Lord Wavell, Viceroy of India 1943 – 1947).
