Most people refer to Fatima Ali Jinnah as the “Mother of Pakistan.” Fatima was raised by very adamant males because she was born into a large family in a colonial region. She was enrolled in a strict school after her father passed away, where she got a top-notch education. Later, she used her knowledge to maneuver her way into a highly sought-after admission to a renowned university, where she later graduated with honors. Fatima used her education to break ground in her home India by founding one of the first dental practices run by a Muslim woman. Later, as her brother gained notoriety in local politics, she accompanied him around the globe before returning home after he established a successful new nation. After her brother’s untimely and unexpected death, Fatima kept up her charitable work out of devotion to his principles. She finally gained political notoriety in the latter years of her life when she confronted a military tyrant who had her country under his iron rule. She was praised across the country as a patriotic hero and an inspiration to millions of people despite her failure to win the race. After she passed away, she gained acclaim and regard from all people.
