Pakistan observes Quaid-e-Azam Day on December 25 each year. In Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s birthday is being honoured. He was referred to as “Qaid-e-Azam,” which translates to “Great Leader,” and is thought to have been the nation’s founder. A lot of activities are taking place everywhere in honour of this important national holiday. On August 14, 1947, Jinnah was appointed governor-general of Pakistan. He put a lot of effort into organising a nation torn apart by intergroup violence. He passed away in his Karachi home a year after being named Pakistan’s governor general. He is now recognised as one of Pakistan’s greatest leaders as a result of his contributions to the nation.
The entire country is working hard to get ready to honour the nation’s founding father on his birthday with the traditional fervour and zeal while also paying him rich tributes for his tireless efforts, cunning, and leadership that resulted in the establishment of a separate homeland for the Muslims of the subcontinent. To emphasise the ideas and vision of Quaid-e-Azam, public and private departments will host a range of events, including seminars, conferences, competitions, and debate programmes.
The country’s significant government buildings will all fly the national flag.The national flag will be hoisted on major government buildings throughout the country on the birth anniversary of the founder of Pakistan. The day will dawn with special prayers for the security, progress and prosperity of the country.
On this day, special activities will be planned to draw attention to and advance the beliefs and ideals of the nation’s founder, particularly those that support the rule of law, the supremacy of the constitution, and democracy. Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah celebrated his 146th birthday on December 22 (Thursday) with a special ceremony organised by the Pakistan Academy of Letters (PAL).
