LAHORE - Work on Aiwan-e-Quaid-e-Azam, a state-of-the-art project on 48 kanals at Johar Town, is continuing with great pace. The roof of the under-construction library of the Aiwan has been completed.

Aiwan-e-Quaid is being constructed on the vision of TheNation Editor-in-Chief and Nazaria Pakistan Trust Chairman Majid Nizami for the ideological training of the youth. On June 6, 2009, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had inaugurated the building, which would be completed in two phases.

The construction work on Phase-I was started on August 2011. A picture gallery about Two-Nation Theory, an auditorium, a documentary and a research centre, Pakistan Ideological Training University, hostels and Yadgar Shuhuda-e-Pakistan would be constructed at Aiwan.  A need had always been felt by the patriotic Pakistani people that there was not a single memorial in the name of great leader who had founded a country for the Muslims of the sub-continent. Keeping in this mind, Majid Nizami had presented the vision to build Aiwan-Quaid. It is believed that Aiwan after construction would be a centre of the ideological training of young generations, students and proud for Pakistani nation.
