Description

This book is one of the most impartial and scholarly studies of Muslim politics in India with special reference to Jinnah's leadership and its aftermaths - the division of India.

Even after the lapse of over fifty years, the question of how and why India was divided remains unresolved: various theories are propounded; not all historians are agreed. Nevertheless there is unanimity that irrespective of the causes, it was Jinnah who finally brought about the division; Nehru and Patel failed to resist him. Why did Jinnah do it? What was his motive? Did he do it because of his love for Islam? Was it indeed to free the Muslim from Hindu domination?
The celebrated author on international repute, Dr. Rafiq Zakaria who has written several best-sellers on the complexities of Indian politics, seeks the answers to these questions. He traces the chequered career of Jinnah from his birth to death, probes every aspect of his political life, and gives a lucid and penetrating insight into his relentless pursuit of power which eventually resulted in the division of India and the bloody and disastrous aftermath that followed in its wake and which has continued to destabilized South Asia ever since.
