Why Do I Idealize Muhammad Ali Jinnah as a Great Leader?

I intend to grow up to become as successful, honest and just like the creator, the founder, the father of our Pakistan, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. He was born on 25 December, 1876 and is an inspiration for us and our oncoming generations. He was a strict Muslim and created Pakistan on the name of Islam. Muhammad Ali Jinnah had been inspired by Allama Iqbals dream of a new country; he earned a degree in law and joined the Indian National Congress, which was the largest Indian political organization. He tried his best to push forward his idea of Pakistan, but he faced many difficulties. But finally when, with the help of his friends and the support of the Muslims, he successfully obtained Pakistan and became the Governor-General, the land was deserted. There was nothing but a few villages and deserts. He built all the cities from scratch. He got support from other countries, and soon he created farmlands and a few cities. But soon after 1947, Quaid-e-Azam died in 1948, and failed to see his country advance to the next level. I idealize Quaid-e-Azam as a great leader because of his potential, his aim, his vision and his efforts. when asked by one of the journalists whether the Muslims were a nation or not, Jinnah replied, We are a nation with our own distinctive culture and civilization, language and literature, art and architecture, names and nomenclature, sense of values and proportion, legal laws and moral codes, customs and calendar, history and traditions, aptitudes and ambitions, in short, we have our own distinctive outlook on life and of life. By all canons of international law we are a nation. He inspired his people when he said the three things needed for succession were Unity, Faith and Discipline. As Governor-General, Jinnah had a very good vision for independence. On October 11, 1947, in an address to Civil, Naval, Military and Air Force Officers of Pakistan Government, Karachi, he said, We should have a State in which we could live and breathe as free men and which we could develop according to our own lights and culture and where principles of Islamic social justice could find free play.Jinnah felt the state of Pakistan should stand upon Islamic tradition in culture, civilization and national identity rather than on the principles of Islam as a theocratic state. He gave us the ambition and will to stand up and fight for our country. He was a very good Muslim, and once during the Pakistan Resolution speech in Lahore at 23 March, 1940, he said, Come forward as servants of Islam, organize the people economically, socially, educationally and politically and I am sure that you will be a power that will be accepted by everybody. He took care of the rights of all the people. Once he said, "No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you. We are victims of evil customs. It is a crime against humanity that our women are shut up within the four walls of the houses as prisoners. There is no sanction anywhere for the deplorable condition in which our women have to live. Quaid-e-Azam was also very kind and generous. Nowadays we and our leaders have forgotten the sacrifices Jinnah and the Muslims of India suffered just to obtain this land called Pakistan. No one is sincere. No one cares for the rights of others. It seems like our people have gone into hibernation. Nowadays we need a leader who is like Muhammad Ali Jinnah, a strong and just leader, who has control over his citizens, and sincere. Our generation is falling. If even one of us takes a stand, a huge difference can take place. That is why when I grow up, I, along with millions of other children, want to be just like Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
