The say a picture is worth a thousand words, here its worth a million. This happened on the 14th of August 2013, Independence Day of Pakistan. A huge crowd had gathered at the Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum as happens every year to pay their respects to the Father of the Nation. And then, one young man started climbing the huge structure un-aided. The entertainment starved crowd applauded and then others followed, there was jubilation for the young men were climbing The Quaid’s mausoleum unaided, which was a brave act, indeed.
It is a sad day indeed for any patriotic Pakistani. The Quaid’s residence at Ziarat was destroyed in a rocket attack. It was a wooden structure which was burnt to ashes along with all the artifacts. At first I was deeply saddened when I heard the news. I visited this place about 21 years back and can recall how beautiful it was. The house, the furniture the surroundings everything was just perfect.
