Canada Has Its Very Own Jinnah Park Now And Pakistanis Couldn't Be More Proud

By Rameen Shakil | 18 May, 2018

As a nation, we’re blessed to have Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah as our leader. Jinnah led the way for the Muslims of the subcontinent. His farsightedness enabled Muslims to have a separate homeland.

 

To honor his leadership, the Jinnah Park was inaugurated recently in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The park was inaugurated by Pakistan’s High Commissioner in Canada, Tariq Azim Khan.

In his address, Khan praised the local Pakistani-Canadian community for naming the park in North America after Jinnah.

Khan also referred to Jinnah’s quote in his speech:

He stated, ‚ÄúWith faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile you cannot achieve.” Additionally, he appreciated the idea of cultural events acting as a bridge to foster understanding between communities.
