Book Description
This is a biography of Mohammad Ali Jinnah and the story of the creation of Pakistan. At a time of much interest and concern about Pakistan in the international community, this volume provides a historical context which helps in an understnding of the present. It traces the development of the Muslim identity on the Indian subcontinent and follows Jinnah as he rode the wave of Muslim communalism to utimate success in the demand for the partition of India and the creation of Pakistan at independence from British rule. Jinnah`s successful espousal of the demand for Pakistan was a remarkable feat. In achieving this success, Jinnah traversed a long distance from teh beliefs with which he entered public life. He started out a nationalist, as a protege of senior Congress leaders like Dadabhai Naoroji. However, the introduction of separate electorates for muslims after the Minto-Morley reforms in 1909 led him to change his position in order to appeal to his changed constituency. Even so, it was not until 1937 that he unabashedly played the religious card. He now began to see the Congress and the Hindus as his adversaries rather than the british. Through tese twists and turns of posture, the one constant factor was his underlying ambition to remain in a position of leadership and eminence.
