Quaid-e-Azam’s Bust Was Unveiled in London And Pakistanis Are Delighted For It

In a bid to honour the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah on the 70th independence year of Pakistan, a bust of Quaid-e-Azam was unveiled at the British Museum on the 28th November 2017.

The bronze Bust was Unveiled by the honourable Mayor of London, Sadik Khan

The unveiling ceremony was attended by the prominent people of London along with 400 officials. Pakistan High Commissioner, Syed Ibne Abbas was also present at the ceremony

The bust was designed by Philip Jackson, known for his brilliant work in the UK as well as in Switzerland and Argentina. Chief Minister Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif appreciated Jackson’s work of art in these words

If we take a closer look at the bust, it will show Jinnah’s liking towards the western attire and the expressions are that of a man sure of himself.

The Mayor of London shared his sentiments about the whole event through this video message shared by the Pakistan High Commission in London

Here is what the Twitterati have to say about the honour.

At the end of the ceremony, British Pakistani Sufi opera singer Saira Peter sang many patriotic and national songs to cheer the audience.

Here is a report by Aaj Tv about the ceremony;

The bust has now reached Lincoln’s Inn to stay there where Jinnah pursued his studies in law between 1892 and 1896. The bust was not launched at Lincoln’s Inn due to refurbishment issues. Lincoln’s Inn has always proudly shown its affiliation with Pakistan’s founder and Pakistani by holding annual dinners for the Pakistani Society.

Let us all take a moment to thank God and Jinnah for giving us the opportunity to breathe in a free space called Pakistan.
