1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of time, 17 Dec 2008
Perhaps the book might have been appreciated if the intellectual arguments were sustained without being favouratized, biased, incoherrent, inconlusive and somewhat delusional of the Arabic language both in context and meaning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth within the Lies, 25 Jan 2008
A brilliant and thorough examination of Mr.Jinnah's role in the formation of Pakistan. Akbar Ahmed has come closest to the true image of Mr.Jinnah challenging Western ideologies subjugated to him. The book is an breath taking insight into the person of Mr.Jinnah. Ahmed enlightens truths about Muslims, British and Hindus, all who have much to reminisence and be shameful about.
