Re: [mukto-mona] Jinnah did not want Partition: Ayesha Jalal

Beyond you. Righty true. " The Pioneer of Hindu-Muslim Unity" he was named for nothing dear. To reach the fact of his personality, one need to be taller in knowledge of his entire political life, his thoughts and the evolution of Indian politics.

Too late to think about that scenario. Bottom line is that Jinnah was afraid of plural democracy and thought Muslims would be in disadvantage in a bigger and larger India. I find the article is full of contradictions. How could he not want a partition but fought vehemently for a Muslim land? His idea was to have Bengal and Punjub as two separate states and making India as rather a fragmented and weaker country? How can Jalal comes to that conclusion is beyond me.
