(New Delhi)Ishtiaq Brings Book Showing Journey of “Jinnah”
The book, “Jinnah: His Successes, Failures and Role in History”, claiming to be a “path-breaking” examination of one of the most controversial figures of the twentieth century, is written by Swedish political scientist and a noted author of Pakistani descent Ishtiaq Ahmed.
Born on December 25th, 1876, Mohd Ali Jinnah served as leader of the All-India Muslim League from 1913 until Pakistan’s creation on August 14, 1947. He then served as Pakistan’s first governor-general until his death in 1948.
Friday, September 11 marked the 72nd death anniversary of the founder of Pakistan.
“Jinnah has been both celebrated and reviled for his role in the Partition of India, and the controversies surrounding his actions have only increased in the seven decades and more since his death.
Ahmed, whose earlier books include “Pakistan: The Garrison State-Origins, Evolution, Consequences (1947-2011)” and “The Punjab Bloodied, Partitioned and Cleansed”, is presently a professor emeritus at Stockholm University.
