Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah the father of the nation, worked tirelessly for the creation of this beautiful nation we call Pakistan. Jinnah was a man of principles and exemplary intelligence. The way Jinnah could talk his way through anything and everything that came his way. Some even say and to which most agree as well that it was this very skill that helped him in the creation of Pakistan. He as a great man said certain quotes which I believe if I share they are for sure heart-warming to the extent that they can motivate the hardest of people. Let’s begin with his most famous saying
‘Think 100 times before you take a decision, but once that decision is taken, stand by it as one man.’
This quote is amazing, it shows how strong willed he himself was and he wanted us to be, that when he said this quote he meant that a person should think before he leaps and when you finally leap for it, there should be no regrets.
His most iconic quote, which is a must read for everyone is
‘You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the State.’
This is Jinnah’s most important quote. Although Pakistan was primarily for the Muslims of the sub-continent, but the Quaid had always wanted that any one regardless of religion can and should be able to live in the nation of the free.
‘With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve.’
Quaid like himself wanted us to also follow his footsteps and work selflessly for the betterment of mankind and to build a nation that can never be broken and never be defeated by any one. Another famous quote and to which I fully agree to is as follows
‘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.’
I have to agree to this point, women in our society are so poorly treated that it is a shame to claim that we are good Muslims. Islam teaches us to treat women with kindness and to respect them like equals; however we treat them even less then animals. We should come out of this horrible practice and try to make the best of the women we have by giving them equal opportunity in our daily lives.
‘There is no power on earth that can undo Pakistan.’
This is a very powerful message by Jinnah. This was an iconic quote that he had said about Pakistan. I believe he is right, no one can undo Pakistan. I hope and pray that Pakistan becomes prosperous and we should take pride in being called Pakistani’s
