Jinnah, Linlithgow and the Making of Pakistan: A Documentary Study

T R Sareen (Author)
Synopsis During the last sixty years, historians have made efforts to explain the circumstances which led to the making of Pakistan. There is no dearth of those who have blamed the Indian National Congress and its leaders for its creation. The Buedon of evidence, however, suggests that is was Jinnah, President of All India Muslim League, who got direct and indirect support from the Viceroy when the war began, for achieving his aim of making a separate homeland for the Muslims.

In this volume the author has shown by documentary evidence as to how this was achieved by Jinnah. The documents collected from archival repositories in India and abroad shed considerable light on what transpired between Jinnah and Lord Linlithgow when the war started and how both conspired to prepare separate scheme to counter the claim of the Congress which became the basis of Pakistan. The documents also reveal, how keen was the Viceroy that scheme should be unanimously approved by the Muslim League at its Lahore Session in March 1940. For cooperation with the British during the war, Jinnah was given the assurance that in any constitutional change in India during or after the war, the Muslims will have the right to decide their own destiny as per the Lahore or also known as the Pakistan Resolution.

With an introduction and explanatory notes the author has done a commendable job of placing the documents for the scholars to pursue this subject in proper historical perspective.
