Quid-e-Azam’s statue to be placed in London on Pakistan’s independence Day.

On Pakistan’s 75th Independence Day, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar and British House of Lords Member Daniel Hanan have announced the erection of a statue of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah in London.

Sarwar said the costs for erecting the statue will be covered by UK-based Dr Nasir Awan and the local business community at a joint press conference here on Tuesday. Daniel Hanan pledged support for trade between Pakistan and the United Kingdom as well as the fight against terrorism. Sarwar expressed his gratitude to the United Kingdom for its cooperation in extending Pakistan’s GSP plus status.

“There is no doubt that strong ties between Pakistan and the United Kingdom are crucial for both countries,” Daniel Hanan stated.

He said, “We have decided to develop trade between the two countries by exchanging business delegations.”

According to Sarwar, statues of Gandhi and other notable figures have been erected in the United Kingdom, and “we have agreed that a statue of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah will be placed at some significant spot in London.” The British House of Lords will shortly provide formal clearance for the statue’s erection, according to Hannan. He pledged his entire support for the creation of peace and the eradication of poverty and unemployment in Afghanistan.
