Happy Birthday to Our Madr-e-Millat, Fatima Jinnah
Fatima Jinnah was a biographer, dental surgeon, stateswoman and one of the founders of Pakistan. She is called the “Mother of the Nation” because she struggled and worked hard to get Pakistan the freedom it has today. She was by her brother’s side every step of the way, supporting and encouraging him. Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s biggest strength was his sister and if it weren’t for her, he may not have achieved all that he did.
My sister was like a bright ray of light and hope whenever I came back home and met her. Anxieties would have been much greater and my health much worse, but for the restraint imposed by her.” Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Fatima Jinnah also worked hard for the women of Pakistan and their rights. Today is her 126th birthday so here are ten quotes by her to encourage and inspire you.
