A hero, a leader of men and women fighting for independence–Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was the founder of Pakistan. He fought tirelessly to create a separate independent homeland for Muslims in South Asia after centuries under British rule had taken its toll on their religious freedoms and economic security.
