If you want to see how Pakistani leaders should be advocating for the rights of Muslims all over the world including the people of Kashmir, then it’s difficult to look further than the example of Sir Chaudhry Zafarullah Khan. This is essential viewing.

Just a reminder: Pakistanis owe all of the UN Resolutions to Zafrullah Khan. Someone most consider a kafir.

Kapil Komireddi’s latest claim that Jinnah and Savarkar were friends and coalition partners is completely inaccurate. If anything it was Pandit Nehru who sided with Mahasabha against Jinnah.

Well said PM Khan. A free press, independent judiciary and a vibrant opposition (inside and outside the parliament) are essentials of a democratic and just polity. Applies to ALL countries.

In August of 1953, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had jailed Shaikh Abdullah and dismissed his government. The idea was the same as it is now. It was to browbeat Pakistan into submission on the Kashmir issue.

Erratum there was no section 93 in the Pakistani version of GOI 1935.

Ishtiaq Ahmed says a lot of things about Jinnah which are historically untrue. Jinnah did not praise Ilam Din. He was lawyer in appeal and Case is part of record.

So to say that the assembly was dismissed is wrong and also historically inaccurate. Only the govt was dismissed as per law having lost its majority.

Secondly, Jinnah had not retained the power to dismiss assemblies. India had section 93. There was section 93 under GOIA 1935 as adopted by Pakistan.

It is not factual that the assembly was dismissed. The govt was dismissed under 51(5) for having lost majority. Next budget session showed the majority.

If you think that 11 August speech is the only time Jinnah spoke of a secular state you have really not read his speeches in the legislative assembly from 1910-1946.
