The 115th birth anniversary of Begum Rana Liaquat Ali Khan, the wife of Pakistan’s first Prime Minister, Maulana Liaquat Ali Khan, is celebrated today with devotion and reverence.

According to details, Begum Rana Liaquat, the wife of Pakistan’s first Prime Minister, Liaquat Ali Khan, was born on February 13, 1905, and completed her MA in Economics from Lucknow University, converted to Islam in 1933 and married to Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan.

Begum Ra’ana Liaquat Ali Khan was a strong lady. She worked hand in hand with her husband for the Pakistan movement and later served the country in various important offices, including as ambassador to various countries, as a minister and even as the Governor of Sindh. It is needless to mention that she achieved a lot of “firsts” for Pakistani women.

Begum Rana devoted herself to the task of creating political consciousness amongst the Muslim women of the sub-continent. In 1949, she arranged a conference of over 100 active women from all over Pakistan. The conference announced the formation of a voluntary and non-political organization for the social, educational and cultural uplift of the women, named as All Pakistan Women’s Association (APWA). She was nominated as its first President.

She died in 1990 due to cardiac arrest and was buried in Karachi, with full state and military honours given to her in her funeral. Because of her services and efforts for medical and woman development and woman empowerment, Ra’ana is commonly known as “Māder-e-Pakistan.
