Street In Brooklyn, New York Named After Quaid-i-Azam
Annually, people all around the world and not only in Pakistan celebrate Quaid e Azam day with great love and compassion for the leader. Wherever Pakistanis are in the world, they remember Quaid day despite heavy celebrations of Christmas.
This year, the Pakistanis that are settled in the United States have managed a milestone that is first of its nature. In form of a resolution that was passed in the City Council, the junction of Coney Island and Foster Avenue in Brooklyn, New York has been named after Quaid e Azam, the most significant figure in the history of our nation, due to a majority of the votes being cast in his favour.
According to news reports, two Pakistanis filed the resolution. This was an effort by the Pakistani American Youth Organization (PAYO) to sustain the cultural traditions of the locality living in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York City.
During a press conference, Wakeel Ahmad, the president of PAYO expressed his content and happiness on the resolution being passed on the birth anniversary of the founder of Pakistan. To further celebrate the day, as well as the milestone, a little cake cutting ceremony also took place.
He labelled this as a gift for Jinnah on his birthday. But not only this, but there will also be an inauguration ceremony held next month for the junction.
Other members of PAYO Adeel Rana, Jawad Shabbir, Hamayun Aziz, and Zegum Abbas were also there at this very special occasion.
This is a moment of pride for not only those who made this possible but for Pakistanis all around the world. It is a feeling of great happiness that the efforts of Quaid e Azam and his endless struggle for Pakistan is not only being acknowledged but also appreciated in corners around the world.
