Dear you will come to know a few points of his great personality by reading below mentioned interview with Saleena Karim, author of a most important book on Quaid-e-Azam, “Secular Jinnah: Munir’s Big Hoax Exposed”. Saleena Karim is also the founder and director of Jinnah Archive, world’s first comprehensive digital library on Quaid-e-Azam. This is a must read interview.

Q) How did you get interested in the life of Quaid-e-Azam, and what inspired you?

A) Until a few years ago I knew relatively little about the Quaid-i-Azam but accepted he was a hero of Islamic history by default. My father got me interested in his life originally, but I only learned about him in detail after I began work on Secular Jinnah. I was inspired in the first instance by Mr. Jinnah’s speeches, which I later referred to as a first-hand resource on his thinking.

Q) Did Quaid-e-Azam want to create a secular Pakistan or a Pakistan based on Islamic principles?

A) This is the big question. Mr. Jinnah certainly did not tire of talking about Islamic democracy and Islamic socialism. In my book I showed that there are literally hundreds of references to Islamic terminology and principles in Mr. Jinnah’s speeches. Additionally, whilst he stressed the absolute equality of non-Muslim citizens in Pakistan, he never once used the word ‘secular’ to describe the country. There is also some evidence lying around which shows that there were non-Muslims who properly understood Mr. Jinnah’s view of Islam, if you know where to look. These facts should really speak for themselves. People arguing for ‘secular Jinnah’ tend to get upset by this argument because they assume that I, or whoever else, is trying to imply that the Quaid was pro-theocracy. They think for instance that we support a class distinction between religious minorities and majorities, or that we advocate the idea of legislation either being written or authorised by ulema. Yet, as every sensible Muslim and especially Pakistani Muslim knows, a state truly guided by Islamic principles is as far removed from theocracy as is an ideal secular state (I might add that there is not one example of either of these states in existence today). The Quaid himself made this point about theocracy versus Islam, which again I showed in my book. The few people who do support such ideas – taken, unfortunately, from fundamentalist literature, rather than the Quran – usually belong to parties that historically were opposed to Partition and Pakistan. So why give their views special attention and why assume that every ‘non-secularist’ agrees with them?

Q) How would you describe Quaid-e-Azam’s Pakistan? How far are we today as a nation from Quaid’s Pakistan?

A) ‘Quaid-i-Azam’s Pakistan’ as such never had a chance to establish itself. At any rate, it is not right to speak of ‘Quaid’s Pakistan’ when Mr. Jinnah said that it was up to the people and the Constituent Assembly to decide the form of their constitution. But we can safely say that the main difference between Mr. Jinnah’s time and now is that back then, a majority of people truly believed that they would rise out of poverty, be given the chance to educate themselves and then make a positive contribution to the international community, in the name of Islam. Pakistan appeared on the map at a time when the Muslim world was facing a political identity crisis, following the abolition of the Caliphate in Turkey. The end of the Caliphate was necessary, but this left the Muslim world in a void. Many people saw the creation of this new Muslim country as a laboratory where Islam would be established afresh, so to speak, taking account of contemporary political and sociological conditions. For this reason Islam in Pakistan was described as the ‘third way’, representing neither capitalism nor communism, but a form of socialist democracy conforming to Islamic (and thus universal) principles of liberty and justice. There was no question therefore, of recreating an early form of Islamic state which may have had merits in its time but could not be made to work in the twentieth century. Again, exactly how this would work was left up to the people and the Constituent Assembly. The Quaid’s sheer integrity and strength of personality was enough to keep the early leaders of Pakistan together – just. Within a few years of his death however, personal rivalries and a lack of intellectual unity between these same politicians came out into the open, marking the end of ‘Quaid’s Pakistan’ practically before it had begun. Today we see nepotism, despotism, jobbery, and discrimination running rampant in Pakistan – all qualities of the worst type of secular state (not to mention the worst of a theocracy). To even begin to undo all of this, will require first and foremost that the people look within themselves and make a concerted demand that they want things to change. Unity must come first.

Q) What do you think about the new book on Jinnah that Jaswant Singh has just written? Have you read that?

A) I have not read the book, but I have seen the interview in which Mr. Singh described its contents. From what he said there seems to be nothing remarkable or new that hasn’t been said by someone else already. There was an interesting article on this subject by Dr. Waheed Ahmad in Pakistan’s News International recently. He suggests on the one hand that Mr. Singh had courage for challenging the wisdom of certain Congress leaders before Partition. On the other, he mentions that some cynics might question the motives of the author, who is after all a veteran member of a far-right political party. Whom does it suit to be told that Mr. Jinnah never really wanted Partition? Is it not suggestive of a wish to see the two countries reunited as one India? I admit to being one of the cynics.

Q) What is the Jinnah Archive? Is it just a website or some project?

A) The idea behind the Jinnah Archive is to make the speeches of the Quaid-i-Azam easily available online. Most collections of speeches have short print runs and they end up in a few university libraries in random places across the globe. My own difficulty in obtaining collections of speeches when researching Secular Jinnah gave me the idea to try and create a searchable database on the Net. Thereafter I began tracking down and purchasing all the printed collections that I could find, and then I built the website. Some distinguished academics kindly helped by giving permission to make full use of their collections. The whole project is privately funded, is non-profit, and is entirely free to the public. Unfortunately it has been neglected of late because I was working almost completely on my own from the beginning, and other unrelated projects have taken up my time in between. This is however, something I will rectify in the very near future.

Q) How do you want to contribute to Jinnah’s Pakistan?

A) That’s an interesting question. We all should utilise our individual talents to the best of our ability. Mine is writing. I hope that my use of the pen will at least get people to think about the Pakistan idea, and not to give up on it.

Q) How would you describe Jinnah?

A) How does anyone describe an awesome personality such as Mr. Jinnah? He was evidently a man of unswerving integrity, high intelligence, pride, conviction, strength, and with more than a smidgen of dry humour. A true example of a Muslim leader, certainly one of the finest of the twentieth century, if not the finest.

Default perception

It was just fantastic , I m a great fam of mr jinnah, one thing which I strongly feel tht it is a planned plot by the guileful west to demoralize the national heroes of sub continent bcoz they r no national heroes in west, the most prominent examples are the holly wood movies u can see the x man she man , superman spider man in short all fantasy heroes ,and the best part is this mjority of the population inspires this delusion: . To compound to this majority of the west nations are void of any ideology even.They desperately want to create a heroism and patriotism among there nations but sadly they have falled miserably.So now a newly formed propaganda launched to create a an element of resentment regarding the national herores among the nations with specified ideologies for instance I keep on heraing ppl questioning the moral values of mr jinnah , liaquat ali khan. Allama iqbal and many more. Just to perversed us from knowing what hardships it took to find a muslim puritanicl land (pakistan) but a question arises here does tht mean we start question our beleives?Our spirits?Our identity? ltrue nation alwaz repect the leaders |(national heroes) and remeber thm as their role models.

No doubt he was a great man who enjoyed every phase of his lifeIm very much impressed by his Punctuality...his colleagues used to say"Jinnah sahib ko ata dekh ke hum apni Gharri(watch)ka time set kr laite hain".......he was a liberal minded politician and had a clear vision of the democratic Pakistan..
Negative point may be difficult to mention but i feel that he was a Proud person..

Post Jinnah our greatest leader

Jinnah was the most outstanding personality of South Asia.The greatest leader
our country ever produced.His good qualities are so much that bad ones
just cant stand the shine of his goodness.

Prof.Stanley Wolpert the author of Jinnah of Pakistan has written in his
book that Jinnah was great leader than Gandhi and Nehru.

At the time of partition Gandhi told lord mountbatton that only Jinnah can stop the bloodshed,he said this and this speaks volumes of the personality of the
Quaid.he said that Quaid was following the policy of goodwill,harmony,fairplay and reciprocity.

he added that founder of Pakistan was an outstanding barrister and an honest politician.

Wolpert said that he hated corruption,nepotism and jobbery.
Prof.Wolpert said,

He believed in working for the wellbeing of the masses and equal rights and principles for all and no discrimination b/w communities.

Jinnah will live in our hearts.The wave of corruption which is prevailing in our country now can only be eradicated by working on the principles of our great leader.

We are proud of you Jinnah.

He made few bad decisions during the partition of Pakistan over the issue of Princely States and their division. He sure was asked to have an devised formula for the division of provinces (with population based consensus) placed in the middle of India.

@invincible.

The term "religion" refers both to the personal practices related to communal faith and to group rituals and communication stemming from shared conviction. "Religion" is sometimes used interchangeably with "faith" or "belief system",[4] but it is more socially defined than personal convictions, and it entails specific behaviors, respectively.

I mean that Mr. Jinnah did not use to pray and fast.
