Oct. 8, 1938 Karachi: He says, “The British have unleashed wolves on the Arabs in Palestine.”
1938: Bombay, 3 A.M., August 14. A Hindu journalist asks Jinnah why he was staying awake so late. Jinnah responds, "I am awake because my nation is sleeping."
1938: Jinnah visits Allahabad. He ruled the hearts and minds of students. They crowded the Allahabad railway station in multitudes. The railway traffic had to be stopped for 2 hours.
1938: Khwaja Hasan Nizami, a noted scholar in Delhi, calls M.A. Jinnah as "Quaid-e-Azam" (The Great Leader). Soon, everyone in India was calling him by this honorable title.
March 23, 1940: Meeting of All India Muslim League at Lahore in the presence of 200,000 people. The crowd was so massive although the British government had imposed curfew in Lahore! The Lahore Resolution (next day called by newspapers as “The Pakistan Resolution”) was passed.
