President Field’s third day in Karachi commenced with a great honour for the President personally, as well as for all Ombudsman and the IOI. Under full ceremonial Naval Guard, a beautifully sung recitation of the Holy Quran and the Naval Band playing the National Anthem of Pakistan, the President laid a floral wreath inscribed with the details of his official visit to Pakistan at the tomb of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the revered founder of Pakistan, laid to rest in the Mazar-e-Quaid mausoleum. An honour typically reserved for Prime Ministers, Presidents and Heads of State, it was a deeply humbling and reverential occasion. The President was then provided a private tour of both the Mausoleum and the museum of the Mausoleum, a perfectly preserved record of the great life of Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
