      Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah

      Father of the Nation (1876-1948)
      Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah was born at Karachi on December 25, 1876. He was a lawyer and politician who fought for the cause of India’s independence from Britain, then moved on to found a Muslim state in Pakistan in 1947. Jinnah entered politics in India in 1905 and by 1917 his charisma and diplomacy had made him a national leader and the most visible supporter of Hindu-Muslim unity. His strong belief in gradual and peaceful change was in contrast to the civil disobedience strategies of Mohandas Gandhi, and in the ‘30s Jinnah broke from the Indian National Congress to focus on an independent Muslim state. In 1940 he demanded a separate nation in Pakistan and by 1947 he managed to get it from the British and India. Through civil wars, a rotten economy and millions of displaced refugees, Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah (“the great leader”) pretty much built a country from scratch.



      Allama Mohammad Iqbal (1877-1938)
      Poet, philosopher, and political leader
      Allama Iqbal was born at Silkot on November 9, 1877 and studied at Government College, Lahore, Cambridge, and the Univ. of Munich, and then he taught philosophy at Government College and practiced law. He was elected (1927) to the Punjab provincial legislature and served (1930) as president of the Muslim League. A staunch advocate of Indian nationalism, he became a supporter of an independent homeland for India's Muslims and he is regarded as the spiritual founder of Pakistan. Iqbal was the foremost Muslim thinker of his period, and in his many volumes of poetry (written in Urdu and Persian) and essays, he urged a regeneration of Islam through the love of God and the active development of the self. He was a firm believer in freedom and the creative force that freedom can exert on men. He was knighted in 1922. His works include The Secrets of the Self (1915, tr. 1940), and Javid-nama (1934, tr. 1966).

      Abdul Sattar Edhi
      There have been accolades and blessings heaped upon the head of this determined, soft-spoken Pakistani philanthropist who has changed the way his countrymen react to crisis and to helping the vulnerable.

      An embodiment of charity and the spirit of giving, Edhi is head of the Edhi Foundation, the world's largest ambulance help service and charity. Edhi Foundation also runs free old people's homes, orphanages, clinics, women shelters, rehab centers for drug addicts and mentally ill individuals, it has run relief operations globally from Africa to Eastern Europe to America.

      "I'm a Muslim, " says Edhi, "but my true religion is human rights." Despite his enormous fame and the vast sums of money that passes through his hands, Edhi adheres to a very modest lifestyle. He and his family live in a tweo room apartment and do not take any salary. They live on the income from government securities that Edhi bought many ytears ago to take care of their personal needs for the rest of their lives, thereby freein them to single mindedly pursue their missionary work.

      Ansar Burney
      Ansar Burney being a hero is an everyday job for this swashbuckling, mustachioed human rights champion who has taken up causes as varied as rescuing the Egyptian, Pakistani and Indian sailors of the MV Suez from the hands of Somalian pirates and fighting for two decades to rescue child jockeys in the Middle East and making such child slavery illegal.

      Born on August 14, 1956, he was the first man to receive the Pakistani National Civil Award Sitara-i-Imtiaz for his human rights work in 2002. The 'Ansar Burney Trust' is also accredited for securing the releaase of aroun d700,000 innocent prisoners from countries around the world.

      By mobilizing support and ransome for Indian sailors along with Pakistanis during the pirate standoff, Burney reached across the traditional barriers of skepticism that the two nations struggle with and wrote a new chapter in Indo-Pak relations.

      Ismail Gulgee
      (October 25, 1926 - December 16, 2007)
      Ismail Gulgee awarded Pride of Performance, Sitara-e-Imtiaz (twice), Hilal-e-Imtiaz, was an award-winning, globally famous Pakistani artist born in Peshawar. His father and grandfather had moved there from Attock, while his mother was from Hazara. Gulgee's father studied at the Muslim College Peshawar. He was an engineer employed with the government and Gulgee traveled with him a lot. His grandfather was a Sunday painter. Gulgee first studied at Peshawar Convent School and then went to finish high school studies in Lawrence College situated in the Himalaya Mountains in a place called Ghora Galli near the British hill station called Murree. He was a qualified engineer in the U.S. and self-taught abstract painter and portrait painter. Before 1959, as portraitist, he painted the entire Afghan Royal Family. From about 1960 on, he was noted as an abstract painter influenced by the tradition of Islamic calligraphy and by the American "action painting" idiom.

      Initially, he went to Aligarh University to study civil engineering before heading off to USA for continuing his higher education. According to artnet.com, Gulgee started to paint while acquiring his training as an engineer in the United States at Columbia University and then Harvard. His first exhibition was in 1950.

      Gulgee was a gifted and consummately skilled naturalistic portrait painter who had enjoyed (according to Partha Mitter) "lavish state support" and plenty of elite commissions in this capacity. Nevertheless, he was perhaps best known worldwide for his abstract work, which was inspired by Islamic calligraphy and was also influenced by the "action painting" movement of the 1950s and 1960s (Mitter notes that Elaine Hamilton was a strong influence in this direction). This is perhaps a natural enough stylistic combination, since in both Islamic calligraphy and action painting a high value is placed on the unity and energy of gestural flow. As with the works of other action painters or abstract expressionists, Gulgee's canvases were often quite large. He was also known for using materials such as mirror glass and gold or silver leaf in his oil paintings, so that they were in fact mixed media pieces.

      According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (see external links): "Gulgee's calligraphy paintings are abstract and gestural interpretations of Arabic and Urdu letters. His sweeping layers of paint explore the formal qualities of oil paint while they make references to Islamic design elements."

      Beginning in the 1960s (if not earlier), Gulgee also created sculptures, including bronze pieces that were (like so many of his paintings) calligraphic in form and inspiration, and sometimes specifically based on verses from the Quran [source:artnet.com].

      His paintings were bright and full of color, but the paint was put on with great sensitivity, and paintings vibrate with intense feeling. Areas sing with luminous, thin color; thick blobs of paint pulsate with fiberglass tears, the brush swirls strong and free. The total effect used to be very free, yet considered and well thought out. They work enormously well, because it was all orchestrated with great care and concentration.

      His son Amin Gulgee is also a famous artist.
