Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah



Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah


(1891-1967)

The younger sister of the Quaid-e-Azam and the nation's Madar-e-Millat was born at Karachi and was educated in a convent school of Bombay. Later, she studied dentistry at Calcutta and also practiced for a year.

She accompanied the Quaid-e-Azam to the first Round Table Conference in London in 1930 and returned in 1935 after an extended tour of Europe. She took a very active part in the struggle for Pakistan and earned the respect, love and devotion of millions.

Even in her old age, she was always active in all philanthropic activities and her appeals for funds raised millions of rupees, for instance, on her appeal a huge amount was collected in the Kashmir fund within a few days. She patronized many educational and welfare institutions, particularly the institution for the eradication of tuberculosis.

She contested the presidential election in 1965 to uphold the principles of true democracy in Pakistan.

She died in Karachi and was buried in the courtyard of the Quaid-e-Azam's Mausoleum.

Collections of her speeches have been published in both Urdu and English. She wrote a book on the Quaid-e-Azam titled "My Brother".

Mr. Jinnah was something more than Quaid-i-Azam, supreme head of the State, to the people who followed him; he was more even than the architect of the Islamic nation he personally called into being. He commanded their imagination as well as their confidence. In the face of difficulties which might have overwhelmed him, it was given to him to fulfil the hope foreshadowed in the inspired vision of the great Iqbal by creating for the Muslims of India a homeland where the old glory of Islam could grow afresh into a modern state, worthy of its place in the community of nations. Few statesmen have shaped events to their policy more surely than Mr. Jinnah. He was a legend even in his lifetime.
