On December 25 each year, Pakistan celebrates the birth anniversary of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He was an Indian politician who campaigned for an independent Pakistan, becoming its first leader. Quaid-e-Azam translates to “Great Leader” in English .Special programs are held throughout Pakistan in celebration of Jinnah’s birthday. Many of the programs provide a history of his struggle to create Pakistan while attempting to guide people with unity, faith and discipline. The national flag is prominently displayed on all private and public buildings in his honour.

Many Pakistani citizens visit Jinnah’s tomb to pay tribute to his service. Country leaders speak, often asking the country to seek the guidance of Quaid-e-Azam in order to transform Pakistan into a country of peace, brotherhood, patience and to protect the rights of minorities throughout the country. Schools, government offices and many businesses are closed in order to celebrate the life and legacy of Quaid-e-Azam. Leaders offer fateha and lay wreaths at his mausoleum while school children often perform ceremonies in his honor throughout the public holiday.
