1918: Jinnah married the beautiful "Flower of Bombay," Rattan Bai Dinshaw. The common interest between the 41 years old groom and 18 years old bride was their fondness of horse riding. The Parsi Rattan Bai embraced Islam before marriage. She was thenceforth called as Maryam Jinnah.
1919: The only child of M.A. Jinnah is born on Aug 15, Dina Jinnah.
1920: Mohandas K. Gandhi renames the working committee of the Congress, from Home Rule League to the Hindi "Suraaj Sabha." At this juncture, Jinnah resigns from the Home Rule League considering it a biased policy that excluded Muslims.
1920's: Gandhi promotes Hindu fundamentalism and gains cheap popularity with his antics and ‘half-nakedness’. He declares, "If Muslims or Christians slaughter one cow, we will shed rivers of blood in India!"
1921: The extremist Hindu movements of ‘Shanghatan’ (practicing martial arts) and ‘Shudhi’ (forceful conversion of all faiths to Hinduism) threaten to wipe out Muslims and Christians from the soil of India.
1929: Mrs. Ratti Maryam Jinnah's untimely demise due to Typhoid fever in Bombay. She was only 29. Jinnah flies from Delhi to Bombay.
1930: M. A. Jinnah used to say, “I am a national first, national second, and national last”, meaning that he wanted to work with Congress to liberate India from the British imperialism. Even the Congress leaders called him “The ambassador of Hindu Muslim Unity”. Already saddened by his young wife's death, Jinnah gets disheartened by the politics of hatred and religious division propagated by Gandhi, Indian National Congress and the militant RSS. Jinnah quits politics and moves to London to pursue his practice of law which had always flourished. Pointing to their leadership, Jinnah says, “Hindus are incorrigible.” Mentioning their leadership, he said, “Gandhi keeps changing his color like a chameleon. He cannot be trusted with his words and actions. He seldom says what he means and he seldom means what he says. When he runs out of logic, he calls on to his ‘inner voice’. When nothing works to fulfill his wishes, he goes on a ‘Maran Bart’ (Hunger-strike.) How can we deal with such an enigmatic character?"
Sir Winston Churchill retorted in agreement, “This ‘half-naked faqir’ will never allow his ‘bart’ to carry him on to death.”
1931: Round Table Conference in London. Chaudhry Rahmat Ali, a lawyer, stresses on Jinnah that Muslims in India will not accept crucifixion at the hands of Hindu extremists. Hindus were by far the great majority (300 million vs 100 impoverished million Muslims). [Chaudhry Rahmat Ali Khan, a Muslim nationalist in England, was one of the earliest proponents of the creation of a free state for Muslims and he named the state Pakistan.
Allama Sir Muhammad Iqbal present at the conference convinces M. A. Jinnah that Indian Muslims must have their independent homeland.
1933: Allama Iqbal in Lahore writes to M.A. Jinnah in London, "I can see a furious storm raging our way. Muslims of India have the right to look up to you to carry their wavering ship to the harbor of safety. No one else in India can accomplish the humongous task ahead.” Liaquat Ali Khan tells Iqbal, “Jinnah is the only competent, trustworthy, courageous and unpurchaseable leader who can rescue the 100 million Muslims of India.” Liaquat goes to London and tells M.A. Jinnah, "Indian Muslims desperately need your help and guidance for their very survival. The extremist Hindu movements of ‘Shanghatan’ (practicing martial arts) and ‘Shudhi’ (converting all faiths to Hinduism) are threatening to wipe out Muslims and Christians from the soil of India.” Iqbal follows through to Jinnah, “Don’t you think that time has come for you to lead the vulnerable masses into their own free homeland? If we stay still, the Muslims will be destroyed and even Islam would cease to exist in India."
Allama Iqbal repeats," The only safeguard for Muslims is to achieve a free homeland for them. Don't you think the time has come for this demand? A great storm is coming and Muslims deserve to look up to you to captain their ship."
