About Jinnah:
Quaid-e-Azam ("the Great Leader"/"Supreme Leader") Muhammad Ali Jinnah was Born on December 25, 1876 in Karachi, British India and died on September 11, 1948 in Karachi, Pakistan. Unlike Nehru and Gandhi, Jinnah was not born into wealth and Jinnah used to walk to work out of poverty, yet he relentlessly fought and through dedication carved out a place for himself:

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. Muhammad Ali Jinnah did all three. - Stanley Wolpert (a historian)

Mahatma Gandhi himself hailed Quaid-e-Azam as "a great Indian" and was the sole spokesman of the South Asian Muslims of pre-Pakistan. L. K. Advani, an ex-Prime Minister of India whilst visiting the mouslem of Jinnah in Karachi, was rich of praises for the Quaid and described him as a secular leader. Jaswant Singh, ex-Minister for Defence, Finance and External Affairs of India, who laboriously researched for the past 5 years on Jinnah and released a biography: "Jinnah: India-Partition-Independence" was forced to conclude that the founding father of Pakistan was "a great man", "man of attractive personality", "self-made man" and hailed him as "The Great Leader".

In Pakistan, Jinnah is honoured with the official title Quaid-i-Azam, and he is depicted on all Pakistani rupee notes of denominations five and higher, and is the namesake of many Pakistani public institutions. The former Quaid-i-Azam International Airport, now called the Jinnah International Airport, in Karachi is Pakistan's busiest. One of the largest streets in the Turkish capital Ankara — Cinnah Caddesi —is named after him. In Iran, one of the capital Tehran's most important new highways is also named after him, while the government released a stamp commemorating the centennial of Jinnah's birthday. In Chicago, a portion of Devon Avenue was named as "Mohammed Ali Jinnah Way". A statue of Muhammed Ali Jinnah was erected at York University. The Mazar-e-Quaid, Jinnah's mausoleum, is among Karachi's most imposing buildings.
