Md. Ali Jinnah (محمد علی جناح), the most controversial figure in Asia in the last century and a great statesman who is blamed singly for changing the history, geography, civics, economics, in short, Social Science of the continent. Even if he was not responsible, getting credit for such a big thing also needs a major personality.

Anyway, we will never be able to know what actually happened during partition, who was right or who was wrong and saying anything may lead to severe consequences. Because, for the past 62 years there has been a political conspiracy in both India and Pakistan to brainwash the young minds against the other country. Both the countries blame each other for various things that happened before and after partition, and it is taught as a part of syllabus in schools. But, we cannot blame a single side. As Sidhu says, "You cannot clap with one hand my friend!".

Now, lets look at the points that I gathered from the internet:
  1. He was a very moderate personality.
  2. He was against separate electorates for Hindu and Muslim at first.
  3. At one point he even left politics and went to London. This was when Gandhi supported Khilafat movement. He said what is India's independence has to do with dethroning of the Caliph of Turkey. Gandhi did this to gain Muslim support.
  4. He proposed a two nation theory wherein two nations would exist withing the same geographical boundaries. I feel that needed a quite a vision even to understand, and it was superbly great idea. His idea of an united India included Pakistan.
  5. "When Jawaharlal Nehru made his famous statement that there is nobody who can stop the Constituent Assembly from enhancing the powers of the centre and we do not believe in grouping, it became untenable for Jinnah to accept the Cabinet Mission Plan. It was at that point that you begin to see a movement for a Pakistan as a sovereign state. " Ayesha Jalal says.
  6. Between 1940 and 1946, Jinnah gained electoral support and was open for negotiations. However, he was snubbed by Congress leaders whose actions were either illogical (Gandhi) or tactless (Nehru). They wanted to rule India as a unit; Jinnah wanted a federation
  7. When all the major congress leaders were in Jail for 10-15 years, Jinnah and his Muslim league was strategically progressing towards the Independence. Although, their strategy was very different from Congress.
  8. He was a great negotiator.
  9. He was a great businessman.
  10. He was very strong willed.
  11. He professed that Islam preaches democracy.
Now, you can interpret in any way you can want, I won't do that for you. Sorry.

Present Situation: Pakistan is an Islamic Republic, free from communal tensions. India is a democratic country where communal tensions is still a problem. There are several groups of terrorists in India who are demanding separate states. Jaswant Singh has been sacked from BJP over phone for writing a Book on Jinnah.
