"Quaid-i-Azam is indeed ranked amongst the most visionary politicians and great statesmen of the world.

Freedom Movement is a living testimony to the Quaid's political insight and visionary leadership, which would continue to be a bright reference point in the history," the Cabinet said.
The entire world is aware of the Quaid's adherence to his principles. He respected law and constitution all his life and fostered positive values in politics. He imparted such inspiring lessons like unity, faith, and discipline to the Muslims of the Sub-continent that they enlighten our lives even today, the resolution read.
