Quaid-e-Azam – Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s Great Grandson

July 1, 2009

Last week the news about Jinnah’s maternal great grandson Aslam Jinnah surfaced as to how miserable and poor life his family were living while being the great grandson of Jinnah he should have some recognition. I was wondering Jinnah had only one daughter Dina Wadia (nèe Jinnah).


Jinnah & Dina

Dina got married to a Parsi born Indian Neville Wadia against the wishes of her father. Wikipedia states:

Mahommedali Currim Chagla, who was Jinnah’s assistant at the time, recalls:

“Jinnah, in his usual imperious manner, told her that there were millions of Muslim boys in India, and she could have anyone she chose. Reminding her father that his wife (Dina’s mother Rattanbai), had also been a non-Muslim, the young lady replied: ‘Father, there were millions of Muslim girls in India. Why did you not marry one of them?’ And he replied that, ‘she became a Muslim'”.



Dina and Neville lived in Mumbai and had a son and a daughter. Dina’s son Nusli Wadia is an industrialist and business tycoon.  His sons – Dina’s grandsons and Jinnah’s great grandsons are Ness Wadia and Jeh (a.k.a Jehangir) Wadia.

About Jinnah’s rest of extended family:

The only grandson of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah is Nusli Wadia, Chief Executive Bombay Dying & Manufacturing Company and lives in Bombay. There is no other grandson of Quaid-i-Azam. The only great grandsons are sons of Nusli Wadia who also live in Bombay. Jinnah’s daughter Dina Wadia lives in New York and Bombay.

This was stated by Liaquat Merchant, grandnephew of Quaid-i-Azam and grandson of Jinnah’s sister Mariambai in a clarification following media coverage which projected Aslam Jinnah as grandson or great grandson of Quaid-i-Azam and invitation extended to him by executives of Baitul Maal in Islamabad.

He said he had in past clarified his position on several occasions during period 2004 to 2007. He said it was incorrect to describe anyone except Nusli Wadia as Jinnah’s grandson.

Merchant, who is Administrator Estate of Quaid-i-Azam, Managing Trustee Jinnah Foundation, Executive Trustee Quaid-i-Azam Aligarh Education Trust, President Jinnah Society, author of publications on Jinnah and recipient of Sitara-e-Imtiaz awarded by President of Pakistan in recognition of his publications on Jinnah, public services in health, education, said he had never met Aslam but thought he was probably a descendent from Nathoo Poonja family.

He said Quaid-i-Azam’s father Jinnah Poonja had two brothers — Walji Poonja and Nathoo Poonja. While grandsons of Walji Poonja had come forward and made claim for a share in Estate of Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah in accordance with Hanafi/Sunni law in their capacity as distant kindred claiming through Jinnah’s paternal uncle Walji Poonja, there was no claim by any male descendent of Nathoo Poonja but a claim filed by one Jenabai, a daughter-in-law of one of grandsons of Nathoo Poonja but her application was dismissed as it did not merit consideration. No other claim has been filed up to date by any member of Nathoo Poonja family.

He said if Aslam is a descendent of Nathoo Poonja, he should establish his ancestry and make a claim before the Sindh High Court for a share. He said he only wished for record to be set straight and had no grievance or reservation against any member of Nathoo Poonja family.

Liaquat Merchant said descendents of Walji Poonja who were settled in Karachi included Muhammad Ali, Jaffer Ali, Hussein Ali and Ghulam Ali who are now survived by Amir Ali son of Hussainali Gangji Walji.

The immediate family of Quaid-i-Azam comprised of his daughter Mrs Dina Wadia and her son Nusli Wadia. Quaid’s sisters are Rehmatbai, Mariambai, Shirinbai and Fatima Jinnah. His brother Bande Ali died and his brother Ahmad who was married to a Sunni lady had one daughter Fatima Goepfert.

Merchant said children of Quaid’s sisters Rehmatbai, Mariambai and Shirinbai are no more alive. Daughter of Ahmed Jinnah lived in Switzerland while Fatima Jinnah did not marry.

Grandchildren of Quaid’s sister Mariambai, presently living in Karachi, are Kulsoom Ibrahim, Zehra Chandoo, Gulshan Chandoo, Rohina Peerbhoy, Liaquat Merchant, Hussein Ebrahim and Moonira Kassam. Other grandchildren of Jinnah’s sisters Rehmatbai and Mariambai live in Bombay and Calcutta.

Quaid’s grand nephew issues clarification

Even if Aslam Jinnah is a relative of Quaid then the media shouldn’t call him his maternal great grandson. He might be a distant relative or he may not be related to him at all.

The history we read at schools never talk about such things. It is the responsibility of media and the historians to set the record straight.

    What an interesting post!

    I am baffled by something though. Jinnah’s dad’s name was not muslim, neither was his daughters nor is she dressing as a muslim in the picture, nor does she look like one.

    Jinnah also looks like a normal forgien person. Only fatimah and his names were muslim, how come? Just a thought.

    May Allh give him peace in the grave for his efforts,a meen.

      By birth Jinnah was Shia Khoja and his family belonged to (Indian) Gujarat. I think in those times people while selecting names for their offspring were more influenced by the culture and their native language. The article above says his sisters’ names were Rehmatbai, Mariambai and Shirinbai etc. If you notice even the sur name ‘Jinnah’ is very unusual and unique. Some people suggest it’s an Arabic word (mentioned in the Quran) which means an ‘arm’. But we can’t say that for sure.

      Quaid’s wife was Rattanbai who was Parsi but had converted to Islam.

      As for Dina… I have no idea what’s the origin and meaning of this name but do remember Quaid was very secular in his lifestyle. Some historian and his biographers mentioned that he used to drink and eat pork. Which might be true. But what makes him wonderful is that he was a man of principles.

      Here is a quote from another article:

      Jinnah raised his daughter as a Muslim, according to Jinnah’s chauffeur Bradbury, Jinnah asked his sister, Fatima, “to teach her niece, Dina (Jinnah’s only daughter) about Islam and The Holy Qur’an.”

    I don’t think Mr Jinnah had anything to do with Islam. His religion was his own wishes and what was he told to do. He wanted to be on the top, and he got it in shape of Pakistan’s governor general. He had no opportunity of that level whatsoever in united India.

    He was as muslim as Mr Asif Ali Zardari, Zukfiqar Ali Bhutto, General Ashfaque Pervez Kiyani or any other figure of authority in Pakistan past and present.

    So no worries about Jinnah, his family or anyone else of their stature in Paki Land. Everyone is grabber (of wealth, fame and power plus some sex) here.

    • October 22, 2009 1:58 pm

      Angel: That’s politics for you! 😀

      If you’ve read history then you must have read that Jinnah was in Congress Party first as he thought it to be the true secular party. Then he joined Muslim League. Left it soon due to Muslim’s strange behavior. Joined again on the request of Dr. Iqbal and then there was no looking back.

      It was simple Jinnah had made it his aim to create a separate homeland for Muslims and he did. Okay we were destined to have our own land. So it happened. Let’s see things with simple lens 😀

      Dear Angel This one is for you!
      To whom did he fight?
      To his masters? who gave him education with stipend? He went Britain as an apprentice, do you know what it means? He was paid while getting education.
      He was a Isma’eeli Shia.
      His wife was Parsi, on objection of members of MUSLIM League they named her Mariam and announced her as a muslim. But later at the time of separation he applied for Indian National and described that the announcement of being Muslim was only for a political situation but originally she is still a Non Muslim Parsi……..
      He was implanted by British and to make a platform where they can harm unity of Indians and separate them in the name of religion. Before Jinnah Muslims and Hindus where fighting for Freedom together and there are big names of Muslims who were members of Indian Congress.
      Real Things are always hidden from us because we can see, read and listen only what British and their agents wanted us to.
      If some one reveals the reality he is labeled as a Traitor, therefore you could not get even close to the real happenings. Now a days these facilities through IT are giving a chance to express views.
      The family of M. A. Jinnahbhai is very much successful and secure in India as we were having trouble living there according to 14 Points of Mr. M. A. Jinnahbhai so he made this country for us.
      The last sentence just above this line tells the whole story…………….

    Why do we believe ‘some’ non-Muslim authors who call our Quaid a drunk person. Hundreds more books written by Muslim authors describe him as a Muslim with fine enough faith. Why don’t we believe them? Are you following Islam by doing this?

    About Dina, her daughter, Qauid-e-Azam let her go out of his life when Dina decided marrying a Non-Muslim & didn’t follow the religion. Dina was brought up by her Parsian grand-parents who filled her brain against Islam and Jinnah. If she was Quaid’s obedient daughter, hadn’t she come to Pakistan in 1947 (Just like Fatima Jinnah did)?
    Wikipedia says {Jinnah continued to correspond cordially with his daughter, but their personal relationship was strained.}

    Would any of you, please, tell me what will be your reaction if I call your deceased grand-pa a drunk, a non-Muslim, a fame wisher, sex-holic? Quaid-e-Azam is our grandpa, our hero. Alas! we the ungrateful people never thank.

    And did any of you live with him? Do you know what he did? What he thought? It’s a matter between him and Allah. Why can’t you just stick to your own faith & religion and stop bothering the deceased one?

    Why can’t we think positive?

    Would you please like to imagine, what would have been your condition, if Jinnah didn’t gift you with Pakistan? I wouldn’t say anything but Orya Maqbool Jaan explains. Even though whole script is worth reading but the true picture of condition of Muslims in India has been captured in last paragraph.

    I didn’t want to comment here, I knew I would go unpleasant but writing “Zardari” blah blah along with My Quaid’s name is just intolerable. I apologize for inconvenience.

      And also when you call Mr.Jinnah Man Of Principle how could he break the main Principles of God..

      Another thing..
      You can easily get the idea of Mr.Jinnah’s life style by this paragraph which you have written on the top…

      Mahommedali Currim Chagla, who was Jinnah’s assistant at the time, recalls:

      “Jinnah, in his usual imperious manner, told her that there were millions of Muslim boys in India, and she could have anyone she chose.

The results are before us as our PAKISTAN is at present.
      Mr. M. A. Jinnah was an Ismaeeli Shia who goes to Jamaat Khan, having no concern with Masjid and Azaan.

      Well. There is enough debate on Jinah’s religion, which is still doubtful, because his lifestyle, views and principals are much different from Maulana Abulkalam Azad and others. As for as his achievements are concerned, they are also not worth appreciating because, it is said that he is responsible for dividing Muslims of India.

    Living like westerners does not one has become non-muslim. The whole thing of associating Islam with Arabian culture is ridiculous from start as we perceive today in Mullahs and Mosques while keeping the slogan of Islam today.

    It is not just coincidence that the people who created Pakistan were all educated in Western Institutes and had western influence. Take the example of Iqbal. Germany had a great influence on him. On the other hand, most of Mullah were strongly against the creation of Islam.

    In order to understand the true spirit of the creation of Pakistan it is mandatory to read Iqbals lectures in “Reconstruction of Religious Thoughts in Islam”.

      MR. M. A. Jinnah was only named like Muslims because he belongs to a sect. which is called Ismaeeli Shia. They go to Jama’at Khana there where is no concept of Aazaan and Masjid.
      In my opinion he was chosen one to kill our rights.
      If I was there in position where Mr. M. A. Jinnah was I would not accept this separation which was caused major issues between two neighbor countries like Bangladesh and Kashmir. We could claim a bigger Pakistan and we would have been a double nation both in manpower and resources and specially we would have a chain of GOOD LEADERS instead of the chain ending presently at ZARD AARI.
      To prove 14 Points of Mr. M. A. Jinnah the bloodshed was done at the separation.

    With respect, we should not judge Jinnah whether he was a drunk or a good muslim. That is for god and only god to do. We should not assume he was power hungry because of his behavior. Who knows what he was thinking. We should not judge a book by it’s cover. It is a known fact that he drank and smoked but this does not make him a bad muslim.

    It’s like Gandhi, we all knew he wanted an Independent India and he stood for non violence but we do not know what other egotistical inner satisfaction he felt (if there were any atall that is). These inner soul thoughts and feelings is only between man and god.

    So all we can do is pray for salvation for ourselves and let god be the judge of us all.

    Whether we are Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Jews etc. we are all god’s children. We should be careful with our opinions and interpretations.

    Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Quaid-e-Azam of Pakistan is undoubtedly the most debated political personality in the south-east.

    His personality and lifestyle indicate a lot. Especially to Indians who have always ridiculed his policies as biased towards muslims.

    And I, as an Indian, feel that there is no doubt to his non-secularism post the 1940’s. What he may have done and said prior to that decade does matter little if we argue the aftermath.

    During those times of severe imperialism, he stood alongside greats like The Mahatma, Sardar and others carrying a singular aim of bringing freedom to India. That alone puts him in a position of true respect.

    What he may have undergone while being with the Muslim League, only he knows. There might have been deeper reasons for him to masquerade his secular self by demading an independent state, but again, his thoughts and actions gave rise to two nations instead of one.

    I just want for a second to imagine both the countries as one nation and think about how we as great grand children may have lived in unity.

    I believe, all the wars and the desperateness to seek kashmir from both ends would have dissapeared. I also believe that when the potentials of the Sardars and the Jinnahs and others would have summed, it would have given such an immense boost to the fertility of the combined land in terms of economics, politics, education and defence in contrast to what exists today

    If someone has an answer to one question that I want to ask, I will concede to defeat and bury my perceptions.

    “Why, if God exists in different forms(Allah, Ram…), did He not come and say…PLEASE STOP FIGHTING IN MY NAME!?

    Jinnah is an abbreviated form of Jenabhai. M A Jinnah changed to Jinnah while he was in England. He was a Shia of the Ithna Ashari sect of Khoja Muslims. It is generally believed that Khojas are converts from the Hindu Lohana caste. The name of Jinnah’s father was Jenabhai Thakkar.
    Thakkar are found in the Punjab in India Hindu Lohanas of Gujrat have surnames such as Mehta or Madhwani.

      Thakkar is more common surname in Gujarat than in Punjab. It is a Lohana surname. However, Lohana surnames are also tobe found in Punjab and Sindh. Lohana are recent addition to Gujarat circa 16th century. Mehta surname is a vanik/Jain surname in main. However, some Lohana families adopted the surname some 100 years ago due to their occupation. ( Mehta=Accountant.)

    very informative..thanks all for sharing your views.
    I am a kind of surprised that many of our young people dint know about the background of Mohammad Ali Jinnah (the father of the nation). I think this is purposely wiped off form our textbooks. But I dont think so we should hide the history. yes he belonged to a Shia family. This is correct he was secular in nature. This is also true that his daughter became parsi and settled in Bombay. But this is also immutable fact that he dedicated his life for the well being of the Muslims of India. He was the only person at that time who could stand against the britishers as the representative of the muslims.

    The name Jinnah is not derived from Arabic.Mr M A Jinnah coverted his father’s name into his surname by dropping bhai from Jinnahbhai.Jinnah’s family belongs to Ismaili Khoja community of Gujarat.Ismaili khojas are converts from hindu Lohana community.For a long time after converting the Ismailis kept their hindu names and traditions.That should clear up the mystery of non-muslim names in Jinnah’s family.For the record
    M A Jinnah’s father was Jinnahbhai.
    Jinnah’s gfather:Poonjabhai
    Jinnah’s ggfather:Gokuldas
    Jinnah’s gggfather:Meghjibhai.
    The family name was Thakkar.
    Nothing sinister about this since 99% of muslims of South Asia are of hindu descent.
    Jinnah was a great man – still misunderstood by both Pakistanis and Indians.I am a lohana
    and take great pride in our most famous son.

    I beg to differ with Tarun Dattani. Jinnah was Khoja Shia Isna Ashari and not Ismaili. I was told this by my mother whose father Vazirali Bandeali was a Jamaat leader of the Shia Khoja community in Bombay when Ratti died and Jinnah asked him (my grandfather) to help with the funeral arrangements at the shia Isna-Ashari Masjid.

      Jinnah was Ismaili – theres no doubt about that what so ever.Although later on in life he became a Sunni.However there is an explanation for Hina’s belief that he was Isna-Ashari.Ratti was denied burial in Ismaili burial grounds.Thats why Jinnah asked for help from Hina’s grandfather.Now it is possible that at this time Jinnah might have joined the Isna-Asharis.
      Last but not least – everything I have read and researched about Jinnah confirms that he was born an Ismaili.

    Most Shia Isna-Ashari Khoja’sforefathers were Ismaili Khojas. They broke away from theIsmaili sect in the middle of the nineteenth century. I dont believe Jinnah ever said that he was either Isna-Ashari or Ismaili or Sunni . His siters married Isna Ashari Khojas and their grandchildren – at least the ones now in Pakistan – are all Isna Asharis.

      There is some truth in Hina’s post .So here’s something more on the Quaid to correct error on my part and that of others.This is Yasser Latif Hamdani’s reply to my post.(
      “Jinnah was born a Nizari Ismaili remained one till he was 25… and you’ve gotten the ancestry right.
      In 1901, one of his sisters- probably Mariam Peerbhoy- married into a non-Ismaili family of Bombay… consequently the Aga Khan ex-communicated her from the Ismaili faith…
      Jinnah and the rest of his family converted to Khoja Ithna Ashari sect in 1901 subsequently.
      They remained Khoja ithna ashari shias till their deaths… An affidavit to this effect was signed by Liaqat Ali Khan and Fatima Jinnah.
      Officially sanctioned Akbar S Ahmad has also tried to portray him as a Sunni… Akbar S Ahmad is more interested in presenting liberal Jinnah as a mainstream Muslim to prove that Sunni Islam is compatible with modernity and liberalism.”

      Hina you are probably right.Jinnah might not have publicly declared his affiliation
      to Shias or Sunnis.Yet actions do speak louder than words for Jinnah did become a Sunni.There might be reasons for this.After all he was perhaps the most rational politician of his time.But this is not we were discussing.His origins is what we were delving into.So whether Ismaili,Isna Ashari or Memon it matters not –
      they all have Lohana origins including myself.

    Well i am finding the truth about the events that took place in 20th century and sorry to say but jinnah was a british agent and he was working in their interest. its all about divide and rule and this is what happened in this “sonay ki chirya”. religion has nothing to do with the separation, but many were killed and still are being killed every day in the name of religion because british know that these people ignite on this issue. anyways may Allah forgive us all.

    Jinnah was a great human being and great human beings are suppose to be rational and intelligent and so was Gandhi 🙂 No well read person (masters level student or above who has read enough about world history) in India or Pakistan or America or Britain can deny their greatness

    one of the things i want to do in life is learn the old world languages (arabic, hebrew, sanskrit,latin) and read all major religious texts (gita, bible, torahs, mahabharat, old testament, buddhist texts, new testament,) in original and unbasterdized forms.

    have you realised that religion is not just praying, its a way of living. by praying you are just vowing to live by the principles of the one you are praying to 🙂 and no prophet himself said that he was a saviour of man-kind. Religion-the way we today see it (including the all the brahmins, mulla/maulvis, priests, popes, et al) is all manifestation of how other people have seen it and its their way of looking at it.

    Men like Gandhi, Jinnah should be revered as gods but also irrevered as human sometimes. both had their reason to do what they did. so did our dear old nehru.
    Jinnah was a great patron of Gandhi when he initially came from South Africa.
    Jinnah has a mansion in India in his name and gadhi has one in pakistan. during partition, they both promised each other to take care of each other’s mansion.

    Jinnah and Nehru were perfect Englishmen who were hardly connected to Indian way of Indiannes/Pakiness and completely devoid of their heritage of cultural mannerisms during their study days. Its much later that they became who they were. I personally think India and Pakistan is a brew of their personal rivalry and British Conspiracy at that time. and I forgot one last name-Edwina Mountbatten, she was in an amazingly powerful position when it really mattered. Gandhi never fought for Indians until he was thrown out of a South African compartment.

    No one, no gandhi, jinnah, nehru etc are saints. they all had their reasons to do what they did-even if it was self-satisfaction. so don’t be blinded by faith or by illogicities. be logical and rational, if you really want to know about them read about history from banned books! (because thats why they are banned) form books which criticize one and all and which praise one and all. this way u will have an unbiased view. all this only if you want pure knowledge otherwise we will all have to go with the jingoism and propaganda around us.

    Every person at sometime or the other has had his personal reasons for doing what he has done. Some of these men changed lives of almost 2 billion people.

    There are somethings that need to be clarified to people outside.
    Muslim in India (atleast in the cosmopolitians) live in complete harmony and peace. its only because of democracy, infact India would have been amuch stronger nation with a much stronger muslim identity with pakistan and bangladesh intact. It would have been able to detract Israel’s policy and american hold. There would have been just 3 major powers->India, US and Russia. India would have had around 40-45% of its entire population as muslims. In a democracy thats a great boon 🙂 a boon that a tattering military dictatorship can never assume. Infact the reason why military coup is a diktat in the pak constitution is a much larger debate->some say it was uk/us plan to instill puppets whenever they wanted (like in chile etc).

    I wished the terrorism stopped and people could visit each other’s country freely. My friend has been to Islamabad and has shown me photos and i love them so much that i really really want to visit but i can’t because of obvious reasons. The only people that can solve south asian trouble are the youth, educationists and students 🙂

    Most countries in the world including the most powerful ones rise and fall because of Economics and Finance and not because of anything else. Kings and King makers dance to the tunes of these sciences and they have no other option. The only power that ever really mattered was soft power, because hard power can’t come without soft power.

    just think about this question as rational beings without any prejudices. What do you think is the most important reason behind human misery in 19th 20th and 21st century? its has been religion and it will continue to be so. especially when religion mixes with politics and finance, and battle lines are drawn.

    in 21st century a few things will definitely happen
    1)US will try as hard as it can to not let China and India pass it over economically hence i expect more wars from republican presidents that US will throw at the world after Obama is ousted (because he is so very misunderstood and he is a perfectionist-politics is about give and take and not about idealism).
    2)the world will be about private corporation and not about countries. It will be driven by Economics and Finance and nothing more.
    3)Religion will again be the reason for most number of killings in the world.
    4)2nd biggest reason for wars will be natural resources.
    5)china will become a democratic nation but the transition will be bloody. after all how long can u let ppl stay away from blogs like this? or or or or or!!? its eventual.

    India’s greatest asset is its democracy, without which it would have perished long long ago.
    Pakistan’s greatest asset is its unity (baloch/nwfp will calm down sumday)

    You live for yourself, your country is suppose to provide you with all basic ammenities one of which is freedom

    Every major leader in India and Pakistan have most of their assets and sons/daughters stashed away in the US or UK and are educated at harvard or princeton or oxford or cambridge. They need not worry, You and I do 🙂
    They can ditch religion, nationality and thoughts at will.

    here are gandhi’s assasinator’s words by TIME magazine

    this is godse’s speech in court->

    an Indian muslim about why he is not a terrorist

    here is another question that needs to be resolved

    Stop fighting for things that don’t matter.
    Fight for your and your countrymen/women’s rights.
    fight for 1) True Democracy and not lineage of leaders. 2) for Education->its the only thing that can make you fend for yourself
    3)public goods and their availability
    4)top notch health services
    5)Fight for your Economic rights.
    Stop lying to yourself and live life beyond jingoism. You are the only one who can save you and mankind. and try HUMANISM for a religion 🙂

    The only peaceful nations (externally) of the world are nations that have economic might.

    as far as creation of pakistan and jinnah is concerned.he did it because it was a challenge for him.those halwa scholars who make a pure muslim out of him are basically secularists from within.they need nothing but a good halwa and a dargah.
    but all should accept the reality of pakistan and its existence.

    and probably it is correct that Jinnah would be a muslim just as Zardari Kiyani Abdus Salam and Benazir are and were

    Hi, its a nice debate, i want to share my thoughts with u guys,what i believe about Quaid E Azam, first o fall i dnt think it is right to judge him or discuss his religion,i believe he wasa pious man and he did so much for humanity and for the muslims of India, wherever he belonged to, he really loved and cared for the muslims of india.he gifted us with this homeland.whateve happened in his personal life is a sad point,but his achievement is greatest alone and we shoul all b proud of him,instead of accusing him for things which we dnt really know are truth or false.

    for the fir first time i saw both ind indian and pakistani people talking so politely

    thats some thing really heart touching

    according to me all of them were politicians

    gandhi was supported by the birlas as he supported there capitalistic mindsets

    nehru has had got his own personal motive to fulfill

    and so was jinnah

    there was just a conflict of interests

    otherwise we would have had been a great undivided country

    and dont forget congress was created by the british to make there rule easy
    and most of the people who joined congress were either erstwhile rulers or belonging to the richer section ‘who havent got any thing to do with the real india’

    according to me the real heroes were bhagat singh,chandra shekhar azad and Ashfaqulla Khan who selflessly laid there lifes for the country

    Very interesting discussions and comments. @Musaafiraa the Book I would recommend not only to you but all of you would be QUAID-E-AZAM JINNAH – The Story of a Nation, written by G. ALLANA, Published by; Ferozsons Limited Year 1967. It is very much available…. It is very much an unbiased account by a person who knew my Quaid… and worked with him closely. It gives every detail from his birth till his death, from family to his thoughts and politics that he did. What he did and Why he felt that two nation theory was th only choice and why he did go for creation of Pakistan… Why he took on himself to do it.. the difficulties he faced (which answers the question if he was an agent or not which he certainly was not).

    Lets not judge people by what we ourselves like or dislike or wished for but judge them for their contributions in making history….lets for once try to respect them and understand why they felt the need to do it ….. so in future if similar situations rise we learn from the past and take conscious decisions for the betterment of our respective countries. I am a proud Pakistani (like a lot of my Indian friends who are proud Indians) I am a Muslim and I respect all the leaders who contributed in the freedom movement and Partition. My family like a lot of others was directly also involved politics of that time. The decisions taken by Mr. Jinnah, Mr. Gandhi, Mr. Nehru and a host of others were very much conscious one as division / partition of areas were then mutually agreed upon by both sides. We if nothing else need to respect all of them and their decisions as they were the ones selected to do what they did. They were the ones who were their at the right time at the right place to do what was required. Some of us call it destiny…some required ….. and some regard it as a bad decision. What we need to understand is that IT HAPPENED and lets respect each other and move forward. if thishad happened or if this had not happened is the only thing due to which our swords/guns and our military has exchanged what should not have been exchanged. Lets live in peace as that is the only thing which will give us respect and prosperity, ….economic and financial strength….. Mr. Jinnah was a great man and so were Mr. Gandhi and Mr. Nehru…. those who have read history and understood it realise it those who have not will create their own assumptions, theories and philosophies. My advice is read and understand what really happened…. why it happened…. and haw it came to this…. their were no egos involved….. their was thought for the betterment of people. One had one perspective and the other had another……. Things break when compromise cannot be done… things break when point of flexibility ends…. things break when pre-set minimum benchmarks are to be overrun…. that is why both sides decided and mutually agreed to part. So lets respect their decisions instead of slandering them or ridiculing them…..Only in this case would we be able to live peacefully as per their respective visions and make our respective countries strong and prosperous. May Allah bless You all 🙂

    Please read this and either prove it wrong or accept that creation of pAKISTAN
    Was a British conspiracy.
    The British Concept of Pakistan:
    The above schemes were being hatched by the Muslims. The final decision rested with the British. When the British saw that their objectives could not be met by the schemes presented by Sikander Hayat Khan or the Muslim League Working Committee, they unilaterally rejected all the proposals submitted by the Muslims. Chaudhry Zafarullah, a member of the Viceroy’s Executive Council, was asked to submit a map of two dominions. On that subject, on 12 March 1940, Viceroy Lord Linlithgow wrote to the Secretary of Stale for India:
    Upon my instruction Zafarullah wrote a memorandum on the subject. Two Dominion States. I have already sent it to your attention. I have also asked him for further clarification, which, he says, is forthcoming. He is anxious, however, that no one should find out that he has prepared this plan. He has, however, given me the right to do with it what I like, including sending a copy to you. Copies have been passed on to Jinnah, and, I think, to Sir Akbar Hydari. While he, Zafarullah, cannot admit its authorship, his document has been prepared for adoption by the Muslim League with a view to giving it the fullest publicity.
    The Viceroy explains this further. Since Zafarullah was a Qadiani he had to be cautious. The Muslims would become irritated if they found that this scheme was prepared by a Qadiani. The Viceroy said that Jinnah had been given a copy to make the Muslim League adopt it and publicise its contents. Sir Akbar was given a copy because he was responsible for fund raising. The dates take on a special significance. The Viceroy’ s letter to the Secretary of State was written on 12 March 1940.
    After that Jinnah British paid agent arranged meeting of 23rd March 1940
    Called Qurar Dad Pakistan in Lahore under BRITISH ORDERS

    My dear Lord Wavell,
    Many thanks for your letter no. 40/3 of the 14th January on a variety of subjects raised in my last fortnightly letter. Though, of course, I entirely get your point when you say “it is no bad thing that he (Gandhi) should remain for the present in a remote corner of Bengal”, you will, I am sure, appreciate that that is a point of view to which I and my Ministers would not wholeheartedly subscribe!

    I can well believe what you say about the draft resolution the little man drafted for the All-India Congress Committee about H.M.G.’s declaration of December the 6th. It is encouraging that Patel at all events showed a greater sense of realism. In this connection I think you would be interested to see a piece of secret information which our Intelligence Branch have got hold of, which tends to bear out your own information as to Patel’s attitude.

    I believe these reports no longer reach the D.I.B. The “Agent” is believed to be reliable and I think myself that the report rings true.

    Sir E. Mieville to Rear-Admiral Viscount Mountbatten of Burma
    11 April 1947
    Your Excellency,
    I saw Mr. Jinnah for half an hour this afternoon. He was at his very best. He started by recalling the luncheon party at which we were both present at Buckingham Palace last December and told me how much he had enjoyed it. He said that his enjoyment was enhanced by the fact that on talking to the King he found that His Majesty was pro Pakistan. On talking to the Queen after luncheon he found that Her Majesty was even more pro Pakistan, and finally when he had a conversation with Queen Mary he found that Her Majesty was 100% Pakistan! I replied that I was sorry that Their Majesties had acted in such an unconstitutional way as to express their opinions on political matters connected with their Indian Empire, at which he laughed quite a lot.

    Jinnah is not solely responsible there was a group of selfish , evil
    Feudal Land lords and Nawabs loyal to British Raj planned this MASSACRE
    ,Carnage of 1947 to completely destroy Muslims political power in India.They created DUMMY dominions NOT country as Jinnah was GOVERNOR

    Jinnah gave 36 Muslims states to India DOUBLE the LAND size of present
    Pakistan.Hyderabad, Junagadeh,Bhopal,Rampur, Awedh etc.
    Jinnah accepted the STUPID partition of India EVEN A BLIND MAN
    WONT ACCEPT ,,,two parts of a country diviided east and west with THOUSANDS Miles
    APART,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Result Pakistan was broken within 25 years , now the left over Pakistan is in the WORST Situation of any country in the world. pakistan has been
    surviving on CHARITY and Donations of other countries that is the reason
    There can not be a nationalist government most of them are PAID AGENTS
    Like Moeen Qureshi and Shaukat Tareen…Where are they NOW????
    They went back to their own country of Uncle Sam where they were sent from
    To rule and fool poor pakistanis and destroy economy of Pakistan
    May Giod Allah save this ill fated country from further destruction . AMEN

    My friend PEACE FOR ALL
    I just shared my grief being a muslim to know
    Where we stand. I am not a politician
    I dont need anything from any one Just sharing my TRUTHFUL REASEARCH
    Of 20 plus years in UK , Pakistan and other countries

    You will answer to ALLAH that you dont have feelings for miseries of MUSLIMS
    You only CONSIDER JINNAH a PORK Eater.WINE DRINKER who never went to any MOSQUE , Once he attended EID Namaz , He was asking LOUDLY from his
    Secretary… WHAT IS NEXT…… WHAT IS NEXT until Namaz finished
    I beleive not only Jinnah but also Nehru and Patel were on British Payroll as Agents
    PLEASE GOOGLE Jinnah a British Agent …. You will find many people of the same views
    It is hard to believe but is is 100% based on facts
    Many news and real facts dont come to surface because of censorship
    For example Gen Zia Nahaq was working in Pakistan Embassy Jordan(Amman)
    He was a Turtle agent of super Powers but working in disguise as Military Attache,
    ,He killed thousands of Palestanians in Military operation led by him on orders
    From super powers to save King of Jordan Hussain
    You can google that event also BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE KNOW about
    Gen Zia Nahaq working in Pakistan Embassy to lead MILITARY OPERATION IN JORDAN
    In 1970 called BLACK SEPTEMBER

    I am writing a book with the title “IN THE NAME OF ALLAH” consolidating political from 1937 to date. I liked your comments and have incorporated with slight modification in my book. Please send me your thoughts and other comments.

    The grandfather, of M.A. Jinnah was Poonja Gokuldas Meghji, who was a Hindu Bhatia Rajput from Paneli village in Gondal state in Kathiawar. Jinnah’s ancestors were Hindu Rajputs; his grandfather had converted to Ismaili religion . Jinnah’s family belonged to the Ismaili Khoja branch.


    I have done lot of research, but I could not find a single evidence that Jinnah, ever visited any mosque to pay his prayer. Last Year I was in India and visited Aligarh, Agra and Delhi, visited Sir Syed Mosque in University Campus, Badshhi Mosque in Agra & Delhi, but no evidence, that Jinnah ever came to these mosque’s. He never visited Makkah or Madina, as other Muslim Leaders, like Abul Kalam Azad, Maulana Mohammad Ali Jauhar etc. Please let me know, if you have any.

    I am of firm believe that Jinnah was not a Muslim but an agent of Hindus and British. They wanted to shatter Muslims of Subcontinent ( 150 millions in 1947 and now close to 500 million) and were successful with the assistance of Jinnah, by dividing them in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. In Pakistan, there is no Pakistani Nation, but Sindhi Nation, Balouch Nation, Pakhtoon Nation, Urdu speaking nation, Punjabi nation and Saraiki Nation and Potohari Nation. You will see Pakistan Flag in Official Buildings, but all over flags of PPP, PML (N), PML (Q), ANP, MQM. Today, one of the Pakistani do remember Mohammad Ali Jinnah but Altaf Hussain, Asif Zardari, Nawaz Sharif etc.

    Jinnah’s courting the princes of Hindu states and his gambit with Junagadh mpproves his ill intentions towards India, as he advanced the theory that Hindus and Muslims could not live together, yet coveted control of Hindu-majority states. In his book Patel: A Life, Rajmohan Gandhi asserts that Jinnah sought to engage the question of Junagadh with an eye on Kashmir—he wanted India to ask for a plebiscite in Junagadh, knowing thus that the principle then would have to be applied to Kashmir, where the Muslim majority would, he believed, vote for Pakistan.

    Jinnah was more concerned about Junagarh, but less worried about Kashmir. He gave Gurdauspur to India in a silver plate, an exist to India to Kashmir.

      The name Jinnah is not derived from Arabic.Mr M A Jinnah coverted his father’s name into his surname by dropping bhai from Jinnahbhai.Jinnah’s family belongs to Ismaili Khoja community of Gujarat.Ismaili khojas are converts from hindu Lohana community.For a long time after converting the Ismailis kept their hindu names and traditions.That should clear up the mystery of non-muslim names in Jinnah’s family.For the record
      M A Jinnah’s father was Jinnahbhai.
      Jinnah’s gfather:Poonjabhai
      Jinnah’s ggfather:Gokuldas
      Jinnah’s gggfather:Meghjibhai.
      The family name was Thakkar.
      Nothing sinister about this since 99% of muslims of South Asia are of hindu descent.
      Jinnah was a great man – still misunderstood by both Pakistanis and Indians.I am a lohana
      and take great pride in our most famous son.

      Thanks for understanding my point of view as I have spent over 20
      Years in western countries to gather the facts.I am no more a
      Citizen of Pakistan as I lived abroad but have the pains and feelings
      Of muslims of Indo Pak who are suffering since 65 years.Mohterim Janab
      It was not a DIVISION of India but Destruction of Muslim Political Power
      As well as Deportation of Millions of muslims from their own land .Muslims were hijacked by British Raj Goras with the help of Nawabs and their Paid agent Jinnah.Anyway I can predict that once more
      Declassified documents from United Kingdom will come to surface people
      Will know the REAL FACTS And Stories as well DRACULA DRAMA behind Creation of Pakistan.If India remained united muslim population of about 45% would had achieved great hold on the government machinery of India but whatever happened can never be undone.Please keep in touch
      At Lastly a RAY OF HOPE for indian muslims after 65 years
      Of struggle and suffering there is MUSLIM GOVERNMENT IN KERALA STATE.
      Congratulations to all Indo Pak muslims , Now we have 2 Muslim states in
      Union of India, Kashmir and Kerala and very soon we will get third & Fouth and fifth by the grace of Allah. Khuda Hafiz

    Please see my comments dated 21-10-2011 at 1.42 a.m., impressed with your comments. I would like to add. Had Pakistan not come into being, besides the fact that that fate of Muslim States (Rajwaras) would have been different. There would have been two National Languages Hindi and Urdu. There would have been a sizeable quota for Muslims in Civil Services, there would have been seven Muslim majority Governments, Baluchistan, Sind, NWFP, Kashmir, Full Punjab, full Bengal, Assam, and in UP coalition Government with Shudar Cast.

    Dear Mr. Ainuddin Siddiqi Saheb
    I appreciate your approach to understand the complicated issue of
    Pakiestan independence and partition of India. Let me also add to
    What you have said earlier Pakistan was created to KICK OUT muslims’From Indian politics and government.If India remained United
    Muslims would had been ruling ALL OF INDIA as they are almost 50% of
    Total indian population. As well Baluchistan would had been an independent Islamic country as it was never part of BRITISH INDIA only
    Sibi-Quetta and Road to Chaman was leased to British Goras from KALAT
    Even British Goras needed VISAS to enter BALUCHISTAN. Under Durrand
    Agreement signed in 1892 Most of Pakistan Punjab and NWFP would had
    Reurned to Afghanistan as per the lease conditions. British used their

    Agents Nawabs and JINNAH Pork Eating paid agent to destroy muslim unity And DIVIDE muslims into Three parts East/West Pakistan and India as per
    Divide and Rule policy.Jinnah was paid 30 Lakhs rupees per year to Qatil azam jinnah to EXECUTE their SAZISH and still after 65 years it
    is no end to DISASTOR and miseries

    Jinnah was a Kathiawadi Muslim, whose grandfather, Poonja Meghji, had converted to Islam. However, both the Quaid’s father and grandfather did not adopt Muslim names, and many of the customs they followed as Khoja Ismailis were semi-Hindu. Jinnah’s original last name was Jinnahbhai. He dropped the ‘bhai’ at Lincoln’s Inn.

    India is a democratic republic. The governments are of political parties and not that of religious parties. The government of Kerala is of the people of kerala irrespective of their religion. If it was so, then the pro-hindu parties would have ruled India from beginning. I pity on you when you say there will be more muslim states/nations in India. Particularly in Kerala, there is no past or recent history of any type of religious riotes. Kerala is a very beautiful and peaceful state to live and enjoy.

    Dear Readers,
    I always support unity and dont preach partition as Mr. Bedu claims
    But facts are facts. Muslims in India need to be a part of MAINSTREAM
    But the fact of the matter is they are treated like Shuddras.
    Muslims fought with Hindus and Sikhs for Freedom and gave sacrifices
    Which were never being acknowledged and Muslims need to get fair share of
    Their statistics. Unity of India and Pakistan is the only solution. I have vision that
    Instead of looking at people on the basis of faith we must differentiate people
    On the basis of Good or Bad Character. Jai Hind

    This is regarding Dina, the only child and daughter of Quaid-i-Azam.

    When he was seriously ill, and everyone knew his end was near, Dina who was in Bombay, applied for a visa for Pakistan. Her visa application was rejected. She then applied again, this time from Delhi. Again it was rejected. Then she applied from London, again it was rejected. She wanted to find out why, but nobody would tell her the reason.

    The moment news of Quaid’s death was received, she was immediately handed the visa, and she rushed to Karachi.

    Later, when she inquired about the earlier refusals, she was told that everybody wanted to issue her the visa, but it were the Quaid’s orders that no visa be issued as long as he lived. This is what I heard from very senior government officials.

    TO all of those who’s saying against the Great Quaid-e-Azam. Specially Ronuq Shah..who has so much sampathies with Muslims of Indo Pak and hate British Raj but live as a slave of them

    BTW My point is that, Pakistan was not the idea of Quaid-e-Azam. It was the idea of Allama Iqbal (few Muslims call him Hazrat). As Allama Iqbal was not polician and went to so many Mosques, never ate pork, drunk wine etc etc..his family is still muslim etc etc.

    Pakistan was a dream of Iqbal came true as efforts of Quaid-e-Azam. The thing is that Quaid’s life was controversial so every writer and politician started to write consipiracies about him and shit minded Paki’s, Indo’s started to believe him. This is British/Hindu Policy to make beleive that their Founder was a secular person who advocated and made a country in the name of religion. Nobody can challenge the personality of Iqbal.

    So ignorant people doing reserch in England, India, google etc etc there’s always one thing which matters and thts “substance over form”

    Have anyone of you realized that Quaid was brought back to India by IqbaL

      .Have anyone of you realized that Quaid was brought back to India by IqbaL
      Mind id the SUPER POWER GAMES are not JUST as EASY as Mr Raza thinks
      Muslims were made FOOLS by putting Paid agents as their leaders.Jinnah acted the
      Same way he promised PEACE for Indopak muslims ???What you got after 65 years is
      Murders,kidnapping,riots,civil war,refugees……
      For your info PAKISTAN ARMY killed more muslims than Indian Army alone Bengalis
      Were 2 millions butchered by Paky Munafiqs.Read the history learn from facts.
      Pakistan from day one is uNDER CONTROL of DEVIL poswers they APPOINT prime misiters and presidents as their agents. No wonder JINNAH Qatil Azam was a paid recruited British Agent,,, as most of Paky officials and rulers are on the PAY PLAN of foreign powers.

    You know Jinnah a Pork Eater never read Quran never entered in mosque for prayers was He a Muslim.?? If Qatil Azam was muslim than all the Kafirs are muslims.
    The Munafiq Islam manufactured in Pakistan teaches them to accept a PORK EATER Soar Ka Ghosht Khane wala as their leader, THAT IS THE BLUNT INSULT OF ISLAM
    As Most of the people are Munafiqs they dont know or dont care about teachings of Islam.
    Jiannh married a Parsi Girl 16 years old the Father in law filed PROTECTION ORDER for the Parsi girl from Bomaby High Court against Jinnah. That is the true character of Munafiq

    Ignoring all the debate,I will just say ‘ Quaid-e-Azam Zinda Bad ‘.He was neither Shia nor Sunni,just a Muslim,committed to provide a homeland & to save the ILilliterate ,poor & inocent Muslim not only from Hindu majority but also from those Mullans who were getting benifits from Indian National Congress.By the grace of Allah,we the Muslims of Pakistan are living here happily.Yes,there are some problems like law & order,electricity etc but 15-20 years back,Indaia was suffering with all such kind of problems .At that time there was no objection on Nehru and Gandhi.Living nations has to face such challengess always.Today,Muslim of India have no entity. Majority of them are compelled to change the religion or hide their Muslim names. In ‘Secular’ India,you can not get Halal meal (zabiha) ,except Muslim areas.In their (todays Hindus) point of view,Halal means manually slatterd animal,not ‘Jhatka’. Now imagine the condition of Muslims living with hindus 70-80 years back,where Muslim Pani Hindu Pani was seperate.Inspite /despite of deep friendships,Muslims were not allowed to enter the Hindus’ rasoi (kitchen).My Quaid realised the facts,left Congress,left the fantacy of Hindu Muslim Bhai Bhai and made a chioce which was ‘PAKISTAN’. If some body has objection on his dressing,eating habit etc.,mind it ,he was a normal human being not an angel.LONG LIVE QUAID-e-AZAM,LONG LIVE PAKISTAN.
