TORONTO, Canada: There’s a new face on campus, standing on the north side of the Curtis Lecture Hall on Campus Walk at York’s Keele campus – and he could be a world first for York. A sculpture of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, founder of Pakistan and the country’s first governor general, was unveiled Tuesday, Jan. 30, to commemorate the creation of a scholarship that bears his name.
After conducting a survey among other student associations around the globe, Babar Qureshi, president of the Pakistan Student Association at York, believes it is the first monument to a Pakistani leader at a university campus anywhere in the world.
