September 11, 1948. This date commemorates the demise of the leader of our nation, Muhammad Ali Jinnah who passed away just a year after Pakistan’s inception and the realisation of the dream that he dreamt for the whole nation.
In remembrance, the local twitterati began a trend on the social media website. While some shared quotes from his famous speeches, others rued at the sad state of the country and how the nation had failed him.
He took Rs 1,500 fee as a Barrister in 1936. He took Rs 1 salary as Gov. General of Pakistan. Respect.
“Character, courage, industry & perseverance are the four pillars on which the whole edifice of human life can b built” Muhammad Ali #Jinnah

“Build up physical strength not for aggression, not for militarism, but for becoming fighting fit, always to be a force for peace.” #Jinnah
“My young friends, I look forward to you as the real makers of Pakistan, do not be exploited and do not be misled.” #Jinnah
I have full faith in my people that they will rise to every occasion worthy of our past Islamic history, glory and traditions #Jinnah
