The nation perceived the 54th death anniversary of “Madr-e-Millat” Fatima Jinnah by the remunerating rich tribute to her.

Fatima is referred to as the “Madar-e-Millat” or “Mother of the Nation, she had condensed unforgettable political and humanitarian amenities for the country, and for her work for the independence of Pakistan.

The Mother of the Nation passed away on July 9, 1967, in Karachi soon after leading an election movement in both the Eastern, now recognized as Bangladesh and Western, present Pakistan wings of the country.

Whereas, Fatima was born on July 30, 1893, and had seven siblings Mohammad Ali Jinnah was the eldest one in the family.

Quaid-e-Azam was deeply pretentious after his wife’s death in 1929, so his sister, Fatima, worked side by side with him Jinnah and congregated the women of the sub-continent on a single stage which made the fight for attaining a distinct state of Muslims easier.

After the freedom of Pakistan, she co-founded the Pakistan Women’s Association which played an essential role in the reimbursement of the women immigrants in the newly-formed country.

The Madr-e-Millat is still popular and is measured as one of the utmost female figures in Pakistan’s antiquity.
