The National History Museum Lahore, Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA), and The Citizens Archive of Pakistan (CAP) hosted day-long celebrations in remembrance of the founder of this nation, Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, on his 144th birth anniversary that took place on 25th December 2020. The event took place under strict COVID-19 SOPS.
Staying true to its core objective of setting itself as a place where our national heroes are remembered, commemorated, and celebrated, the National History Museum organized a series of interactive and fun-filled activities, particularly for the younger generation, to introduce them to the greatest leader in the history of this nation. The day-long list of activities included Painting Competition, Quiz Competition, Interactive Playsheets, Letters to Jinnah, Storytelling Session, Puppet Show, and Musical Choir.
Speaking of the occasion Mr. Jawad Ahmad Qureshi (Director General of Parks and Horticulture Authority Lahore) said “The National History Museum through its programming aims to build a strong relationship between the museum and communities. Together, we celebrate the 144th birth anniversary of our founder, Muhammad Ali Jinnah- a man of great vision whose teachings must be inculcated in our younger generations for a prosperous and progressive nation. The Parks and Horticulture Authority looks forward to hosting many more educational and cultural events at NHM for the public and families in the New Year to come.”
Going forward, NHM will continue to organize regular programming to promote National History Museum as a vibrant learning place, educating Pakistanis on the important subjects of partition, national history, and cultural heritage.
