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.

The biggest blunder we hv done is to confuse the ideology of#QuaideAzam #Jinnah. Our new generations hv forgotten the reason of separation

#QuaideAzam #Jinnah worked tirelessly day n night for our right of freedom. Sadly, we only got the freedom of the body not the mind.

We started our journey to freedom on the shoulders of two nation theory, we're now marching forward on the shoulders of 'no nation' chaos
