Founder of Pakistan

25 April, 2011

Muhammad Ali Jinnah (December 25, 1876 – September 11, 1948), a 20th century politician and statesman, is generally regarded as the founder of Pakistan. He served as leader of The Muslim League and Pakistan’s first Governor-General. He is officially known in Pakistan as Quaid-e-Azam and Baba-e-Qaum. His birthday is a national holiday in Pakistan. He has been equally admired by many opponents due to his visionary approach and use of constitutional and legal channels as a lawyer to bring about an end to British rule to India and for the creation of Pakistan.

This is his British Indian Passport (Indian Empire) given at Karachi in November 1946.
