  • Paying homage to his personal heritage, in the present example Salmon Toor portrays the Founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Jinnah was an Indian politician who successfully campaigned for an independent Pakistan, becoming its first leader. Jinnah worked to establish the new government and policies, and to aid the millions of Muslim migrants who had emigrated from India to Pakistan after the two states' independence, personally ensuring the establishment of refugee camps. He left a deeply respected legacy in Pakistan and is known as 'Quaid-I Azam' or 'Great Leader'.
