Extending warm felicitations on Pakistan Independence day, going to be celebrated on 14th August, Prof. Dr. Shahid Munir paid rich tributes to the father of the nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and other national leaders of the Pakistan movement, who with their unswerving resolve and relentless efforts created a separate homeland for the Muslims of Sub-Continent.
