14 August,1947, a nation was born which people thought would crumble in seconds, today celebrates its 71 years of freedom. With Jinnah at the helm of the ship, the nation not only survived but prospered.
As you can see in the last photo, in the far north of the country, where voting as a woman has traditionally been difficult -- if not impossible -- for many years, large numbers of women queued to ensure their voices were heard. Out of 856(registered) women voters, 739 women votes were cast, which was a big achievement in itself. In the words of Jinnah,”No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you.”
Today we celebrate the freedom of speech, the shattering of tabloids, and standing for what was right all along. While we progressed at a slower pace than others, we still crossed the finish line and that’s all that matters. I’d like to end by quoting Allama Iqbal, a pristine legacy in poetry itself,” Dont get frightened by these furious, violent winds, O Eagle! They only blow to make you fly even higher.”
