Early lfe and Education

Jinnah was the first child born to Mithibai and Jinnahbhai Poonja. His father, Jinnahbhai (1857–1902), was a prosperous Gujarati merchant who came from the Paneli Moti a village in the state of Gondal situated in the Kathiawar region province of Gujarat (present day India). He had moved to Karachi from Kathiawar, because of his business partnership with Grams Trading Company whose regional office was set up in Karachi, then a part of the Bombay presidency. He moved to Karachi some time before Jinnah's birth.Jinnah's family belonged to the Ismaili Khoja branch of Shi'a Islam, though Jinnah later converted to Twelver Khoja Shi'a Islam.

The first-born Jinnah was soon joined by six siblings: three brothers—Ahmad Ali, Bunde Ali, and Rahmat Ali—and three sisters: Mariam, Fatima and Shireen. Their mother tongue was Gujarati; in time they also came to speak Kutchi, Sindhi and English. The proper Muslim names of Mr. Jinnah and his siblings, unlike those of his father and grandfather, are the consequence of the family's migration to the predominantly Muslim state of Sindh.

Jinnah was a restless student and studied at several schools: first at the Sindhi-Madras-tool-Islam in Karachi; then briefly at the Gokal Das Tej Primary School in Bombay; and finally at the Christian Missionary Society High School in Karachi, where, at the age of 16, he passed the matriculation examination of the University of Bombay.

Political struggle and achievements

Jinnah first entered politics by participating in the 1906 Calcutta session of the Indian National Congress. He was the first governer general of Pakistan. Here, at the Calcutta Congress session (December 1906), he also made his first political speech in support of the resolution on self-government. On March 22-23, 1940, in Lahore, the league adopted a resolution to form a separate Muslim state, Pakistan. The Pakistan idea was first ridiculed and then tenaciously opposed by the Congress. But it captured the imagination of the Muslims. Pitted against Jinnah were men of the stature of Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru. And the British government seemed to be intent on maintaining the political unity of the Indian subcontinent. But Jinnah led his movement with such skill and tenacity that ultimately both the Congress and the British government had no option but to agree to the partitioning of India. Pakistan thus emerged as an independent state in 14th August, 1947.

I am so sorry to see some of the comments saying "this website waste our time". As a matter of fact, this nation is so unthankful particularly its youngsters. They even do not know a single thing of our great leader Quaid-e-Azam. Nobody especially from our educated elders even brothers to let these strayed youngsters know a little about our true great leaders of the past. They were the true leaders and just because of them we have been breathing in a free homeland PAKISTAN! Shame on those who say this website is time waster!

It is really interesting and it gave me a lot of information about the history of Quaid-e-Azam or Quaid-e-Azam's past. In fact, it helped me a lot for preparing for my quiz on Quaid-e-Azam. This essay is really helpul. And this is a very shameful compliment that this website wastes a lot of time. This website is providing us information that how great leaders we have in our past, in the struggle for a separate nation, Pakistan.
