Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah Speeches & Statements
Valuable speeches, statements and writings of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah - some very rare.

On July 26, 1943, an attempt to murder Quaid-e-Azam created a stir in the somnolent waters of Indian politics. The follwing is a statement which Quaid-e-Azam gave in the High Court of Judicature at Bombay:
"...Just as I was about to leave the room, in the twinkling of an eye, the accused sprang on me and gave me a blow with his clenched fist..."

September 14, 1948: The Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Halvard Lange sent a telegram to Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan to condole the death of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
It read: Je prie votre Excellence de croire a la part profonde que le gouvernement Norvegien...

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Rahiim
Assalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuhu,

So much has been written on the Quaid that it is difficult to say something new or something that is not known about him. Yet the paradox is that the younger generation is to be reminded of his contribution to the history of Muslims of the Subcontinent.

This site is therefore first and foremost designed to be a living tribute to the legacy of Quaid-e-Azam, the father of Pakistan. During his lifetime, he brought the wisdom to walk in the path of honour, the courage to follow his convictions, and an abiding compassion for others. He enriched us all by the nobility of his spirit. We hope that this site will contribute in some way to reflecting the vision to which he devoted his life...

Speaking on the need for unity, the Quaid said: "Pakistan is the embodiment of the unity of the Muslims nation and so it must remain. That unity we, as true Muslims must jealously guard and preserve. If we begin to think of ourselves as Bengalis, Punjabis, Sindhis etc. first and Muslim and Pakistanis only incidentally, then Pakistan is bound to disintegrate."

Quaid-e-Millat Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan
Pioneers of Freedom
We at Humsafar.info feel it is vital to bring these figures out from the dusk of history.

One of these was Quaid-e-Azam's 'Commander-in-Cheif', Pakistan's first Prime Minister, Liaquat Ali Khan
On April 15, 1946, Liaquat Ali Khan said: "The demand for Pakistan today is not based on fear of the Hindu majority at the Centre but is the urge of a nation to mould its national life in accordance with its own ideals and culture..."

Yeh raaz ab koi raaz nahi
Sab ahl-e-chaman jantay hain
Har shakh pay ulooo betha hey
Ab hal-e-gulistan kya hoo ga

The images above are by no means representative of ALL the 'ulooos' that have brought Pakistan to its knees on many occassions.

Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah in an address to a gathering of the Civil Officers of Baluchistan of the rank of Naib-Tehsildars and above on Feb. 14, 1948, at Sibi, said:
"...From the highest to the lowest we all are servants of the State."

Audio & Video
Listen to the Quaid's voice and sense the emotional on-listners.

Times of India, reporting from Minto (now Allama Iqbal) Park at the All-India Muslim League Session, where the famous 'Pakistan' Resolution was passed, Lahore, March 1940:
"He spoke for nearly two hours, his voice now deep and trenchant, now light and ironic. Such was the dominance of his personality that, despite the improbability of more than a fraction of his audience understanding English, he held his hearers and played with palpable effect on their emotions."...

Scenic Pictures
The scenes and sights are changing so fast that future generations will be unable to see what you and I have seen.

Pakistan offers a great variety of scenery which changes southwards from the highest mountains of the world to fertile plains in the middle, sandy desolate deserts towards the south and sandy white coastal beaches, lagoons and mangrove swamps in the extreme south.

Send us your pics and place your town or favourite spot on the map of Pakistan....

Occupied Jammu & Kashmir
Compelled to declare that accession executed by the Maharaja was 'provisional' and subject to 'a reference to the people', Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru said in late 1947: "We have given this pledge, not only to Kashmir, not only to Pakistan, but to the whole world. We will not and cannot back out of it."

It is apparent from images depicting attrocities committed on innocent Kashmiris by the brutal Indian forces, that there is nothing fuzzy about the modalities of holding the plebiscite already today...
