‘Partition’ Never Happened

August 27, 2009

A book in India that praises Pakistan’s founder is being celebrated in Pakistan. Pakistani commentators appear apologetic in trying to seek approval. The book argues that Mohammad Ali Jinnah did not want Pakistan as a first choice. This is a common mistake made both by Indian and western writers, and even some Pakistani intellectuals. Pakistan was destined to happen, a result of ten centuries of Pakistani cultural, political and military presence in the region located between India, Iran and Afghanistan. The Quaid-e-Azam, as Pakistanis reverently call their Great Leader, understood this and became the instrument for a cause larger than him. The Indians need to correct one more fallacy: there was no ‘partition’ in 1947.

  1. i know, some idiots on TV are celebrating this book, the only good thing about this book is that it shows the BJP is really the RSS

    the book mentions nothing of how jinnah made pakistan despite cunning schemed by mountbatton and Nehru to make pakistan fail,by taking key cities blocking water and anennexing hyderabad

  2. Mr.Singh said in his interview that “IF” NWFP, Baluchistan and these areas (current Pakistan) would have been the part of India, it would have been a Global Power” which clearly indicates that it was never a part of India…

  3. No dobt that Mr. Jaswant did a beautiful between the line propaganda against Muslims’s struggle for Pakistan. It was not Nehru or any other Hindu leader that gave us Pakistan in a pLate but it was the result of many sacrifices and hard work of our then leaders that present us this motherland where we are living as an independent nation.
    It is very important that we should understand the typical hindu mindset rather then making jaswant singh a hero.
