The BJP-RSS combine cannot tolerate anything which goes against their biased anti-Muslim ideology even if it is a reality. It was Lala Lajpat Rai, way back in 1924, who advocated for a separate Muslim state for the first time, when Jinnah was not even on the scene. Apart from the account of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, the noted lawyer H.M. Seervai, in his book, Partition-Legend and Reality, handsomely recorded all the facts and sequences leading to the Partition of the country and this book is the last word on this subject. Many other diplomats and political leaders of eminence – both Indian and foreign – have paid tribute to the straightforward approach and honesty of Jinnah. Jinnah is only a victim of vicious propaganda continuously unleashed by anti-Muslim lobby.
However the question is: Will the change in Mr. Jaswant Singh’s heart and mind, after L.K. Advani’s, bring change in the political atmosphere of the country or is it just another gimmick?
