Mohammad Ali Jinnah

Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the chief architect of mostly Sunni Pakistan, was a Shia, originally from Gujarat, whose adult life was largely spent in Bombay, and who, except for the last decade of his relatively long innings, stood for the idea of a united India and Hindu-Muslim amity. Our history books never talk about this, portraying him instead as petulant, petty and prejudiced.
