President Minhaj-ul-Quran Women League Mrs. Farah Naz has said that creation of awareness about the Pakistan movement was one of the biggest contributions of Madr-e-Millat Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah. She said that the movement that she launched on March 23, 1940 with regard to the rights of the women continued after the establishment of the new country. She is a role model for the women of Pakistan who was a personification of commitment, and devotion. May Allah grant her the highest place in paradise!

Ms. Farah Naz said that Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah was an heir apparent of her brother, the Quaid-e-Azam, in political sagacity. She dedicated her life in the service of her brother so that he could focus on the larger mission of creating a nation-state. She said that the nation acknowledged her vital role by giving her the title of the Mother of the Nation.
