What is wrong calling Jinah secular ? every body knows Jinahs demand for Pakistan was only political it has nothing to do with Muslim rights.this is also true Mr. Neharu was more eager to become the first PM of free India and they indeed concede Jinah his Pakistan this was also true that Britain served as very eager Midwife for Pakistans birth. What wrong Jaswant said which disturbed BJP?

This whole hungama is not really about the ideology of individuals the results, of whose actions, cannot be reversed now. They are long dead and gone and are no longer an active factor in present day affairs. To my mind, it is an attempt by a section of people in BJP to kill two birds with one stone. One is to push the dominant RSS faction into a corner and win the hearts of that section of muslim population who might be having a soft corner for Jinnah. Second target seems two be congress party. The obvious logic would be that if people can be covinced that Nehru was the real force behind the creation of pakistan, then all the pak related problems of agression and terrorism can be laid at the door steps of congress. After all the USP of congress is the halo around the decendents of Nehru. If this can be devalued then who will vote for congress?

BJP was disturbed by his statment about sardar patel and not jinnah. please read the magazines and newspapers with more attention. had BJP not dismissed Jaswant, the congress party would have made a hell of a lot of hungama and especially gujrati would have thrown the BJP govt out in Gujrat.

Intially, M.A. Jinnah was part of the Freedom Movement. His real antipathy developed towards Gandhij, who was the accepted ieader of the Freedom Movement by the masses. Jinnah then gave a political twist, by accepting the Two Nation Theory as his argument was that the majority in undivided India would be Hindus, the Muslims would be discriminated against. Hence those areas having a muslim majority, should be given a seperate Nationhood.viz Pakistan. The Britishers were more than willing to help him out at that stage.By then, Gandhiji was a forgotten and an ignored figure. Read Freedom at Midnight by Donique lappiere and P.Collins. I cannot comment on Jaswant Singh's book without reading it.

NOTHING IS WRONG, BUT PUBLIC PERCEPTION IS JINNAH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DEVIDATION OF INDIA. PUNJAB RELATED PEOLES FACE SO MANY PROBLEMS AFTER THE PARTITION, EVEN THEY FACE KILLINGS & MISBEHAVE WITH FEMALE PERSONS & EVEN WITH CHILDERN.
IF JINNAH WANTS TO STOP THAT, THAT MAY, BUT HE HAD NOT TAKEN ANY STEP FOR STOP THE KILLINGS OTHERS, EVEN HE TRIED TO ENTER IN J& K THROUGH KABAILIES, DUE TO ONLY THAT WAS THE " hindu riyasat ".so, JINNAH'S FACE NOT SO CLEAR, WHICH IS DECLARED BY THE SO CALLED POLITICIANS THROUGH HIS BOOK.
