Thank you so much for all the love 💖 💕 here’s your annual thank you😊 On February 1948, in a radio broadcast to the people of the United States of America, he spoke of Islamic system of government to be adopted in Pakistan. He said:- “The constitution of Pakistan has yet to be framed by the Pakistan Constituent Assembly. I do not know what the ultimate shape of this constitution is going to be, but I am sure that it will be of a democratic type, embodying the essential principles of Islam. Today they are as applicable in actual life as they were 1,300 years ago. Islam and its idealism have taught us democracy. It has taught equality of man, justice and taught us democracy. We are the inheritors of these glorious traditions and are fully alive to our responsibilities and obligations as framers of the future constitution of Pakistan.” •

Like 97% of you all, I don’t know #JustinTrudeau personally but professionally I am spellbound. I have admired him since his first public appearance but couldn’t resist myself from writing something about him after I saw this video. From his stance on Syrian Refugees to Climate Control to standing up to Trump regarding immigration policies, this gem of a leader has made #Canada a beacon of compassion for interfaith communities. Bravo 👏🏻 Why I write about him with so much heart? Because somewhere deep down inside of me I wish this was a Pakistani leader showing his love & care to the numerous minorities in this country. It is ironic that #QuaideAzam & our forefathers fought for a country where minorities will not face the atrocities we (Muslims) faced pre-independence; yet, we still haven’t seen our leaders showing compassion to our Christian, Parsi, Hindu & Sikh brothers & sisters on their holy events. Pakistan as a nation has to stay together to grow stronger. Learn to give!

I think it is our tragedy as a nation to not have given the phenomenal Fatima Jinnah her due both when she was living and after her death. She was a strong, opinionated, independent and fierce woman standing shoulder to shoulder with her brother in the struggle for Pakistan.
We not only ignored her guidance and political wisdom after the Quaid's death but have reduced and edited her legacy to only being Quaid-e-Azam's silent emotional support without any acknowledgement of the fierce indomitable leader she was especially to the women and youth that were integral to the Pakistan movement!
May we never forget our heroes and heroines and may we give them the respect they deserve! .
