Essay: English Essay My Hero in History
“Greatness be nothing unless it is nothing.” (Napoleon)
History is full of heroes. It is natural for a man to love great men. It is said that history is the record of great men. These great men determine the course of life. Their lives instigate that we can also make our lives sublime. In our history, there have been heroes such as Khalid Bin Waleed, Tariq Bin Zaid, Muhammad Bin Qasim, Babar, Mahmood Ghaznavi, and Quaid-e-Azam. But my hero in history is Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. I like him because he had all the qualities of a hero. Furthermore, he gave us Pakistan.
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was born in Karachi on the 25th of December 1876. He received his early education from a local school. Later on, he joined a Missionary High School wherefrom he passed the Entrance Examination in 1891. He was then only fifteen. Next year, he went to England for higher education. He returned home in 1896 as a Barrister-at-law. He settled in Bombay and started the practice of law.
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s political career began in 1910 when he was elected from Bombay to the Indian Legislative council. First of all, he was a member of the Indian National Congress, but later on, he joined the Muslim League. For many years he tried his utmost to establish harmony and outlook between the Hindus and the Muslims. He tried to make them stand on one platform but in vain. Soon he was convinced that Hindus and Muslim unity was not possible. He devoted himself to the Muslim League. As a result in the general elections of 1937, The Muslim League won a large number of seats in the Provincial Assemblies.
In 1930, Allama Muhammad Iqbal had explained the idea of Pakistan. Muhammad Ali Jinnah took up this cause and idea and gave it a practical shape. So the Pakistan Resolution was passed. Pakistan Resolution was a remarkable incident in this connection. Then the Second World War came with its destructions. The English had promised to leave the country at the termination of the Second World War. In March 1947, Lord Mount Batten was sent to India. On 14th August, India was divided into two states. It was a great success for Jinnah. Pakistan came into being on 14th August 1947. Quaid-e-Azam became the first Governor-General of Pakistan. He died in harness on 11th September 1948.
“A good man never dies.” (Callimachus)
Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had matchless qualities. He was a tall, dignified and elderly man. He was thin and lean. He was a speaker of the first rank and his speeches were very forceful and impressive. He was a model of sincerity. He had great determination. He often used to say “Once the decision is taken, stand by it as a wall”. He was independent of opinion and did what he thought was right. He was also a wise and shrewd politician. It was because of his wisdom and personality, that the Muslims were united and got a new homeland.
Quaid-e-Azam had a deep sense of responsibility, determination, and courage of conviction. He tacked gigantic problems successfully and labored hard for his missions. He had to carve out a place on the map of the world for the Muslims to live on. He had an abiding forceful respect for the law. He hated all forms of social evils.
