ISLAMABAD, July 03, 2009 (Balochistan Times) -- The family of founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah visited Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal to inaugurate the new office of the organizations Chairman Zamurd Khan here. Mrs Aslam Jinnah, along with daughter Zainab, met the Chairman Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal. The great grandson of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Aslam Jinnah talking to reporter, said that the credit for his visit to Islamabad goes to Bait-ul-Mal. The family of Jinnah was neglected in the past. The present government realizes their worth. They are the members of our great leader who liberated the Muslims from slavery and gave them a country where they can enjoy their rights, chairman Zamurd Khan told this agency. He said that Bait-ul-Mal has provided them a house worth Rs five million in Karachi and a car with a driver for lifetime. He informed that the family will be given Rs. 50,000 every month for living expenses. Aslam Jinnah thanked Zamurd Khan for providing him a house in Karachi as earlier they were living in a rented house, which was in dilapidated condition. The previous government promised to help their family but never fulfilled the promise. Aslam Jinnah said, we were living in a dilapidated house and my daughter Rabia used to say that this house will collapse any time but no one paid attention. Expressing happiness over getting the residential facility he said the new house is not less than a Taj Mahal for my family and it will be named as Kasr-e- Rabia house after the name of my daughter who died due to typhoid. He thanked the people for extending them a warm welcome on their arrival. He also expressed gratitude for publishing of a book on his daughter Zainab Jinnah who is disabled. The book is titled Pakistan ki Shehzadi. He said, as Muslims we must work for the humanity. Allah loves those who remember their founders. Our family sacrificed for the country and the hospitality of people is an honour for us. Aslam Jinnah said that some of his family members were living in Mumbai, India and one of his sister lives in Karachi.
