Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah devoted her life to brother’s cause and fought for a peaceful future for the Muslims in India. Especially her endowment in the Pakistan movement paved the way to our homeland.
Ms. Jinnah was a dental surgeon by profession, post-independence, she co-founded Pakistan’s women association (APWA) along with Begum Rana Liaquat Ali Khan.
She set an example for Pakistani females, highlighting the significance, the role of women in all facets of life, and is a prime feminist figure to look up to. She joined All India Muslim League and actively participated in political activities, alongside her brother.
Almost half a century ago, she broadened the spheres that women can delve into and proved the part of a ‘woman’ can be vital as we can see in the form of our esteemed country.
Not only she was a ray of light and hope in an era where women’s rights were almost nowhere to be found b also she was the advisor and a preacher to her brother in the movement and was a prominent member of the All-India Muslim League.
She passed away on 9th July 1967 in Karachi soon after fronting an election campaign in both eastern and western parts of the country. The official cause of her death is said to be cardiac arrest, but rumors have it that she was assassinated.
The 53rd death anniversary of Madr-e-Millat Fatima Jinnah is being observed with reverence and respect across the country and the nationalists all over Pakistan are paying tribute to one of the leading founders of the country.
