“You are greater than a hero even in being the maker, the creator of our homeland.”

The Quaid-e-Azam is my national hero. He is my favourite character in history. Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was born in Karachi in 1876. He completed his early education in Karachi. Then he went to England. There he completed his education in law after which he became a barrister. He returned to India and set up as a lawyer in Bombay. As a lawyer, the Quaid-e-Azam had to work very hard. At first he was not so successful in his profession. But, some years later, he was the most successful lawyer in Bombay.

The Quaid-e-Azam was a great statesman. At the beginning of his political life, he joined the Indian National Congress. He worked hard for Hindu-Muslim unity. But he came to understand that the Congress wanted to have Hindu rule in India. So, he left the Congress and joined the Muslim League.

As a member of the Muslim League, the Quaid-e-Azam tried hard to bring the Indian Muslims together. He asked them to unite and fight against the foreign rulers. The Quaid-e-Azam became the permanent President of the Muslim League. In 1940 he presented the demand to divide India into two countries India and Pakistan. He went on working for the independence of the Indian Muslims. He faced the opposition of the Hindus and the English bravely in unusual ways.

The Quaid-e-Azam was the first governor-general of Pakistan. He continued working for the progress of Pakistan till the last moments of his life. He died in Karachi in 1948. The Quaid-e-Azam’s life was one of honest struggle against mighty (very powerful) forces. He was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth (that is, he did not have rich parents). The Quaid-e-Azam was the most popular Muslim leader of his time and continues to be so in our age (period of history). As the founder of Pakistan, his fame will never suffer an eclipse (that is, will never fade). Unluckily, he could not write a will before his untimely death about the social, economic and political system for Pakistan. He could not write anything about the need to bring the feudal (“jagirdari”) system to an end.

All this has really caused the introduction and continuation of instability (discontinuity of policies etc.) and corruption in politics and economics of the country.
