Twitter alert: Honouring Fatima Jinnah

The end of this month celebrates the birth of one of our most beloved leaders, Fatima Jinnah.

A strong, courageous lady, Fatima Jinnah stood by her brother, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, resiliently and played an important role in the shaping of Allama Iqbal’s dream.

Her bravery and sacrifices earned her the title of “Madar-e-Millat”, meaning “Mother of the Nation.”

To honour her memory, the local twitterati began a trend in her name. While many praised her bravery, others quoted snippets from history that highlight her role in the creation of Pakistan.
