    1. The author has presented the case very well. Till today I perceived M A Jinnah as a secular leader who did fight for a separate homeland for Muslims of Indian subcontinent.Miss Karim has done a marvelous job to obliterate this image and presented the true picture of our father of the nation.I'd like to suggest this well researched book to all those who still regard M A Jinnah as a secularist. It is a must read for all of you.
