DescriptionIn just over seven years, from 1940 to 1947,
Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah transformed
Asia. He woke sleeping giants, the Muslims of South Asia, and gave them a free homeland they had never dreamed of. He ended their slavery, which had consumed their vitality, dignity and wealth for nearly two centuries since their treacherous defeat at Plassey in 1757. He gave them back their pride as a ruling power of the vast sub-continent for over 1000 years.
In the words of historian Stanley Wolpert: “Few
individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly any one can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.” These are the most astounding historical developments any one of anxious readers is likely to experience and ask: What was the kind of man who could do what he has done.
This book is an attempt to answer that question
by looking at that remarkable man through a window of his personal habits, traits and attitudes.
