LAHORE: Fatima Jinnah, honored with the title Madar-e-Millat (mother of the nation) is being remembered on her 52nd death anniversary.

Special arrangements are being made for Quran Khwani at her grave located at Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum.

The iron lady, who was the younger sister of the nation’s founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah, invested her support in civil rights and devoted struggle towards the Pakistan Movement.

Masses still hold her in high esteem for her contribution to Pakistan Movement and also leading the people towards their much-cherished dream of strong democratic norms and culture in the country established through the power of votes.

As slogans of “Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad! Pakistan Zindabad!” echoed, Jinnah along with his sister, Fatima Jinnah, on August 7, 1947, landed in Karachi — a week before Pakistan became recognised as a separate state.
