Quaid-e-Azam' s concept of Pakistan, Part 2
Dear brothers and friends,
2nd Instalment of my Urdu article on Quaide-Azam' s concept of Pakistan has been published in a Karachi daily Jasarat and can be read by clicking on the following links.
A brief survey of Pakistan's descent into Secularism was made in the first installment and a reference was made about a book, "Secular Jinnah", by Salina Kareem published from London in 2005. Further details of this book's argument have been explained in this installment. The writer has exposed the trickery and deceit of the late Justice Munir in his 1979 book, "From Jinnah to Zia". It is a matter of shame that a person, who was once a Chief Justice of Pakistan, resorted to an outright lie and falsehood in his trumped up attempt to prove Jinnah a Secular person. Justice Munir manufactured a saying in the name of Jinnah and quoted it in his book as if Jinnah had told it in a interview to Reuter's correspondent, Donn Campbell, in New Delhi, which was published in the daily DAWN on May 22, 1947, i.e. before the birth of Pakistan.
This baseless and fabricated quotation of Justice Munir has been quoted again and again by all secular intelletuals of Pakistan in their books and articles for last 25 years to prove Jinnah a person of Secular thinking. That interview is still now available in the 4th volume of Mr. Khurshid Ahmad Khan's 4-volume collection of all Jinnah's sayings. There is no existence of any such sentence ascribed to Jinnah by the liar Justice Munir. The writer further claims that Jinnah has never used the word "Secular" in any of his sayings or statements. He has always spoken in very clear terms that Pakistan will be an Islamic state based on Islamic principles of democracy, justice, equality, freedom and tolerance etc. He has never spoken any where about making this state a Secular one, as claimed by our Secularist writers and journalists in English and Urdu media and in their television discussions.
