Can you please give us a ‘summary’ of your findings,whenever you have some free time (if at all),along with your conclusions as to how and why partition happened,when even jinnah did not want it ? Was Patel responsible for it ? Was it that Hindu extremists did not want to have such a huge Muslim population in India (Pakistani Muslims+Indian Muslims+Bangladeshi Muslims=HUGE) ? OR was it somehow in the interest of British imperialists to pre-empt emergence of a ‘would be’ superpower in Asia,which a united India undoubtedly would have been by now ?

I admit,i could not get what Ayesha Jalal proposed in her interview with Qasmi Sahib.Looks like the issues were more complex and confusing than what we learned in our schools.I am familiar with the propsed concept of ‘autonomous regions’ within Indian federation though....

Is she talking about the same thing ?

Or is it that jinnah did want a separate country BUT with entire Punjab and entire Bengal being part of Pakistan ? (In other words without ‘partition ‘ of Bengal and punjab). Was he that naive to think he would get it ?

It does not make sense....

Highly enlightening. If you spend most of your life being so angry, especially at your religion, it's not surprising that you would not be left with any significant achievements in the field that you specialize in and claim to love so much. No wonder he talks about "unfulfilled ambitions".

You have made very interesting observations ya akhi.

On the other hand after going through this interview I felt little less angry with him.

I agree. I feel the same way.

One ray of hope that I saw in the interview was that at the very least he was able to distinguish between being a Muslim and an Ismaili. Usually, secular people tend to think of Ismailism as another version of Islam. The way he talked about it though, it seemed he didn't feel the same way.

I want to comment on Hina Rabbani Khar's position in this clip.

And by now I am already feeling lonely about the battle that we Muslims have no option but to fight to get our intellectual space back to us.

I find that Mufti Ajmal Sahab, a Barelwi Mufti, has got most concise and direct views on a particular contentious issue in this video. Kindly avoid discussing the subject matter as a precaution.
