The history of Pakistan Movement is filled with the stories of millions of people who gave their everything to get freedom. Most of them couldn't actually see the day of freedom and independence but their sacrifices are written in the soil of Pakistan which will never be forgotten. We can't even count all those people who did their best to get an independent country we are living in as everyone has played a different role for Pakistan. It's the need of time that we should remember those Great people and their sacrifices and tell them to our youth which has become so negligent towards history.
The first personality I want to tell you about is Ms. Fatima Sughara. Today, very few people know her, to be honest, she was one of the most courageous women of that time. Can you believe that she, at the age of just 14, climbed up the Lahore Secretariat(the main British building in Punjab), removed the Union Jack from there and replaced it with the Green Muslim League flag. This courageous act from such a young girl was a proof of enthusiasm and passion the people had at that time and which was their supreme power towards the creation of Pakistan.
In an interview, she said, “When I took down the British flag and replaced it with our Muslim League one, I don’t think I really knew what I was doing. It wasn’t planned. I was rebellious at that age, 14, and it seemed like a good idea. I was not prepared for it to become such a big symbol of independence. They even gave me a Gold Medal for Services to Pakistan. I was the first ever to receive one”. (The Guardian, 2007). She passed away on September 25, 2017, at the age of 86 in Lahore.
