London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Pakistani High Commissioner to the United Kingdom Syed Ibn Abbas and sculptor Philip Jackson unveiled Quaid’s statue in the ceremony.
London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan in his address on the occasion paid rich tributes to Quaid-e-Azam and declared him a great leader. He said that said that Muhammad Ali Jinnah was not only the hero of Pakistanis but the people of other nations also declare him a great leader.
Speaking on the occasion, Pakistani High Commissioner to the United Kingdom Syed Ibn Abbas said that Quaid’s statue will soon grace Britain’s Lincoln’s Inn. Lincoln’s Inn, an institution that has long been preparing students for their law exams, was regularly visited by Jinnah in the pursuit of his degree.
It’s an honor to see Jinnah being recognized in a place as prestigious as Lincoln’s Inn and knowing that his efforts were noticed by people all over the world.
