Many of the Pakistani celebrities and top government officials took to social media to share their messages on account of Quaid-e-Azam’s birthday.
Today on his Birthday, we pay homage to our Quaid, Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Our Leader, who believed in law and justice. A man of great vision who foresaw the importance of two separate nations. 72 years later Quaid’s worst critics concede that he was right. Ay Quaid tujhay salaam! pic.twitter.com/BYdnFsvbPr

While many kept questioning Quaid’s wisdom for a separate state for years.. as we see the unrest in Kashmir & fumes of Hindu fanaticism engulfing India today, his words have never been more true and relevant. Happy birthday & #ThankYouJinnah pic.twitter.com/86iWiOS8D7

"Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three."

With his honesty, integrity & unmatched courage, he achieved for his nation what looked totally unachievable in the beginning. He was indeed a true leader.
Today, the rampant fascism in India proves without a shadow of doubt that he had vision beyond his time#ThankYouJinnah pic.twitter.com/1zrsWSfaWt
