I am Air Commodore Khalid Chishti (R) and joined Pakistan Air Force as a fighter pilot. I retired after having served for 35 years. During the service Pakistan government conferred me with Sitara-i-Imtiaz (Military) and Sitara-i-Basalat.
My inspiration began in 2003, when I went to Istanbul (Turkey) for a year. During my stay I truly appreciated Turkish nation for having immense admiration and respect for their national hero Kamal Ataturk.
On return in 2004, as a national cause, I took up the challenge to revive the legacy of Quaid-e-Azam. More so because we all are beneficent of his favour and sacrifice. With a view to recuperate national spirit and to build a better understanding in minds of the today’s youth about Quaid-e-Azam, I conducted research on his personality and in next seven years, collected over 250 of his large resolution, rare portraits. , I thought the young generation will connect with him more fondly if these portraits were near to real. Most of these pictures were not in a good condition; so the first challenge was to treat the damaged parts and restore the them to original condition.
In the next three years, through computer software, these pictures were transformed them into colour. Additionally I collected dozens of narratives from his life, reflecting his remarkable selflessness and extreme devotion, which could not only inspire the youth but also act as the guiding principals for them. These coloured pictures were also merged with the Quaid-e-Azam quotes / world leaders’ tributes and the narratives about him. Also made over 300 colourful posters, with an endeavor to make the viewing more engrossing for youth. In the honour of Quaid-e-Azam, launched this website. Currently delivering lectures, without any remuneration, on the “Unseen and untold of Mr. Jinnah” at national level.
