Birth Centenary Celebrations – M A Jinnah (Part - II)

“'Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.”  (Stanley Wolpert, professor of history, University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Jinnah of Pakistan and Nehru: A Tryst with Destiny)


While Pakistan Post honoured Jinnah by celebrating his birthday centenary in a befitting manner, many a countries around the world also remembered Jinnah as well and issued commemorative stamps on the occasion. These countries included Turkey, Iran, UAE, Ajman, Jordan, Morocco, Iran and Burkina Faso.
