Chapter 01 Pakistan Zindabad

Q:1:How was the Quaid-e-Azam greeted on 7th August, 1947 in Karachi?
Ans)A large warm-hearted and enthusiastic crowd welcomed Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the Founder of Pakistan and the first Governor General General of the country, at Maripur Airport, Karachi on 7 August 1947. The procession of the people that stretched from airport to the city was raising the slogans “Pakistan Zindabad” and “Quaid-Azam Zindabad”. The people of Karachi were grateful to the Father of the Nation and they gathered at the Maripur airport to give him a warm and historic reception. They wanted to pay the heartiest homage to the man who had won freedom for them and founded a new and separate homeland for them. he had changed their dream into reality, by virtue of his firm faith, determination, tireless struggle and wisdom. 

Q:2: What was the Quaid’s response to that warm welcome?
Ans)Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah did not show any warmth in response to the shouts of joys. Although, he waved his hands to participate in the merriment and joys of the excited people but he did not appear to be in high spirits. In fact, he was sad from the core of heart on that grand occasion.  
Q:3:What did people decide on 23rd March?
Ans)In a historic gathering at Minto Park Lahore, the Muslims of the subcontinent took epoch-making decision on 23rd March, 1940. They decided to acquire freedom from British rule to have a separation from the dominating rule of Hindu majority, to demand for provincial autonomy to turn down all the decisions, which fail to give the Muslims a separate homeland of their own. The incident was named as Pakistan Resolution. It is a land marked the history for our homeland. It was through this decision that the Muslims of the sub-continent put up the demand for a separate and independent homeland. 

Q:4:What in your opinion was the cause of the Quaid-e-Azam’s sadness?
Ans)In August 1947, whole of the subcontinent was echoing with the shouts and slogans of “Pakistan Zindabad”. The birth city of Quaid, Karachi, was the spearhead of that movement. However, the Quaid was seen in gloom and pathos. Probably, he was worried about the miserable plight of the people who were migrating from India to Pakistan. They had to cross the sea of blood to reach their new homeland. The price they paid for their liberty was quite high. 

Q:5:What did the Quaid-e-Azam do with his former enemies after the formation of Pakistan?
Ans)The Quaid-e-Azam believed the dictum ‘peace with all’. After partition, he raised the hand of friendship with his former enemies. For his futuristic vision, he stated, “…and yet the enemy of today is a friend of tomorrow”. His motto “Live and let others live” ascends him to the height of the messenger of peace. 

Q:6:What are the ideals of the Quaid-e-Azam regarding religious freedom for all?
Ans)Immediately after freedom, the Quaid-e-Azam assured all the people of Pakistan of their independence in letter and spirit. He stated, “You are free, you are free to go to your temples, mosques, or any other place of worship In this state of Pakistan” He assured them that all the people of Pakistan are equal citizens of this state without any discrimination of creed, caste, colour, and religion. 

Q:7: Why did Kashmir not join Pakistan? Or
What was the most serious blow to the Quaid-i-Azam soon before his death?

Ans)The forced and unjust separation of Kashmir from Pakistan was the most serious blow to the sick and frail Father of the Nation. He was on the death-bed. He was deeply shocked by the news that the Hindu Maharajah was taking the people away from Pakistan, forcibly and against their will and wish. In fact, the valley of Kashmir was an independent state. The fate of Kashmir had to be decided by the free will of the people. Without conducting plebiscite, the Indian aggression devoured a wide area of Kashmir. It all happened entirely against the aspirations and wishes of the people of Kashmir. Maharajah of the valley, Gulab Singh, supported Indian act. This was treacherous on his part that had put the people of Kashmir into the woods. The Quaid’s condition grew worse. He was sick, exhausted and helpless. He was not in a position to struggle for the liberation and protection of the people of Kashmir. 

Q:8:Why did the Muslims of India start Pakistan movement?
Ans)When the roots of British became weak in India, it delighted all without any difference. Sooner, with the dominating influence of Indian National Congress, the Muslims of India felt their freedom in danger. To the Muslims the departure of English government meant nothing but mere a change of masters. The Muslims began to demand a separate peace of land for a nation. 

Q:9:Why does the writer apply the word “terrible” to the first year of Pakistan’s history as an independent state?
Ans)The first year of Pakistan was the most critical time for the people of the newly created country. The writer calls it the terrible first year because it opened Pandora Box for all in so many ways. It included: * Historic migration * Large scale brutal killings * Rehabilitation of immigrants * Provision of basic necessities * New country, new flag, new capital, inexperienced administration, worse economy, and various explosive incidents brought terrific state of things to Pakistan.

Q:10:Write a few lines about the personality of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
Ans) Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah is a man of par excellence. He is a man of so many virtues. He is a person of firm and resolute will. He is by far the strongest advocate of human rights for all. In politics, he never allowed duplicity and confronted his rivals quite in a frank and straightforward way. British rule collapsed and Congress supremacy decayed because of the leadership of him.

This article, falling into two parts, speaks of the birth of Quaid-e-Azam. Part-1 recounts  the father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam, arrival in Karachi. It tells us the great leader’s  feelings on the occasion of joy after achieving his goal. 
Part-2 describes the year 1933, when Chaudary Rehmat Ali coined the word Pakistan as  a name of a Muslim state to be carved out in this sub-continent. This idea was adopted  by the Muslim League in march, 1940. The Quaid-e-Azam then declared “No power on  earth can prevent Pakistan”. He met stiff opposition from the Hindus. To counter it he  founded the well known English newspaper Dawn. Even some Muslim were against him  and a Khaksar attacked him with a knife. The Quaid-e-Azam survived and struck to his  guns. Even Gandhi-Jinnah talks failed. Finally, Britain decided at the end of this second  world war to quit on 15th August, 1947, and hand over her powers to the two new states.  This was a great victory for Quaid-e-Azam. Terrible time was followed at the time of  patrician when half a million Muslims were killed or carried away for prisoners. Five and  half million Hindus left Pakistan while six and half million Muslims migrated here. The  last year of Quaid-e-Azam’s life was made terrible due to the fate of Kashmir.  
On 7th August, 1947 a vast crowd had gathered at the Maripur Airport, Karachi to  welcome the founder of the nation. Quaid-eAzam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He arrived  there as the first Governor General of their new state Pakistan. As soon as he appeared  before them, they cried out with one voice, Pakistan Zindabad. From the airport the Quaid-e-Azam drove to the city through their unceasing shouts of  joy. But he kept quite calm and betrayed no emotions. Perhaps his thoughts were with  numerous persons who were being killed in their effort to reach their new homeland. It  was only on Independence Day that he went to the balcony and smiled for a few  moments at the cheering crowd. The people then saw how warmhearted he really was. Though tired, the Quaid-e-Azam had the satisfaction that he had done the major part of  the work. Indian Muslims were a small defeated group. But under his leadership. They  had become the fifth largest Muslim state of the modern times. 
A few days later, the Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah declared that every one is  allowed to live according to their religion in the state of Pakistan.  
The word Pakistan was invented by Chaudary Rehmat Ali, in 1933. Its initials are taken  from various parts of Muslim areas like P for The Punjab, K for Kashmir, and it denotes  the land of the people who are spiritually pure and clean. In 1940, they passed a Pakistan Resolution, which was the great landmark in the history  of Muslims. It decided that Muslim and Hindus are separate nations and they should be  divided in no time. The Quaid-e-Azam made the people aware by visiting and publishing a newspaper which  he called Dawn. Muslims welcomed the newspaper of his own. After that Quaid-e-Azam  and Gandhi met for the last time to reach an agreement but all went vain. Britain  declared that she would give India self government and leaving the India by 15th of  August, 1947. They should decide in no time either they want to join Pakistan or India.  The N.W.F.P, Balochistan, Sindh, The West Punjab and the West Bengal voted for  Pakistan which had seventy million persons. Forty million Muslims were left in India. At  last Pakistan and India came into being as two separate states.
Pakistan’s first year was terrible. Half million Indian Muslims were either killed or taken  prisoner. Six and half million Muslims had to leave their homes and came to Pakistan as  refugees from India atrocities. The Quaid-e-Azam was shocked at the killing and  destruction. Despite this he extended his hand of friendship towards India saying that  one who is an enemy of today may very well become a friend tomorrow. 
The Quaid-e-Azam was now old, ill and tired. But the last year of his life made him very  sad when he learnt that the Hindu Maharaja of Kashmir had made over the state of  India against the wishes of its Muslim inhabitants who wanted to belong to Pakistan.  But the great leader was took weak struggle for a just solution of the Kashmir issue. He  was away from Karachi but flew back to it and died ther. He was buried into the heart of  the city.
