Happy Birthday Mr Jinnah

Though Jinnah came from a traditional Muslim family he developed a mind that was modern and secular, and was as brilliant and sharp as any of his adversaries or colleagues, whether Indian or British.

Like the best pre-Gandhian leaders of India’s National Congress Party, such as Gokhale, Jinnah continued to work toward and hoped to win India’s freedom by his brilliant mastery of secular Western law and parliamentary rules of governance.

So much has been said about Mr Jinnah and what he wanted Pakistan to be. In the coming months his version of the Pakistani state will be covered on this website.
