Quaid E Azam Early Life:

Muhammad Ali Jinnah was born on December 25th, 1876 to his parents Mahomed Ali and Mithibai. He was the first one of their seven children. At the age of six years, he was enrolled in one of Karachi Schools. Though he was born weak and feeble yet his mother had great hopes and expectations from him, she had a strong vision of him becoming an achiever. With the years passing by, Jinnah proved to be of great value, possessing quality mind and charismatic personality. Sir Frederick recognized the extreme potential of Jinnah which is why he was one in the million to be selected for an apprenticeship at his office in London. Quaid E Azam’s early life was going well, with the best education and career; he was already famous in the town.

“Failure is a word unknown to me.” ― Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Life in London

He was sixteen years when he moved to London. His stay in London lasted for three and a half years. He found life in London as dreary and was not much of a fan to a cold climate and grey skies but later got used to it. He lived in a rented room when he came to London, later on, he was the houseguest at Mrs F.E Page-Drake who loved her for his charm personality and well-manners. The house now displays ‘The Father of Pakistan lived here in 1895’. After joining Lincoln’s Inn, Jinnah developed an interest in Politics. The decision was tough as he lost support from his father and Sir Frederick but it was unlikely Jinnah would step back from his decision. For him, politics were glamorous, he would occasionally go to the House of Commons to listen to speeches. Maybe, it was the start of the great era where Jinnah was going to be an inspiration for hundreds and thousands.

“No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you. We are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners. There is no sanction anywhere for the deplorable condition in which our women have to live.” ― Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Quaid-e-Azam achievements as a revolutionary leader:

On his return from England, Jinnah stayed for a brief time in Karachi and then he shifted to Bombay because the city offered him great opportunities for his career and politics. Jinnah was romanticist in both personal and professional life. He was a well-known personality in the subcontinent, he had become a political giant & had many achievements as a leader before Gandhi returned from South Africa. Jinnah entered the world of politics as a Liberal Nationalist and joined Congress in the beginning. He showed great skills of a statesman at an early period of his career. His opinion mattered and people listened to him with all ears. It was Quaid E Azam’s revolutionary achievement as a leader that Pakistan was created, a homeland for the Muslims.

“The great majority of us are Muslims. We follow the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed (may peace be upon him). We are members of the brotherhood of Islam in which all are equal in rights, dignity and self-respect. Consequently, we have a special and a very deep sense of unity. But make no mistake: Pakistan is not a theocracy or anything like it.” ― Muhammad Ali Jinnah
