In 2005, Saleena Karim raised controversy when she proved that a famous quote of M.A. Jinnah used in Chief Justice Munir's From Jinnah to Zia (1979) was a fake. In this much-anticipated sequel to Secular Jinnah, * the author provides an in-depth analysis of the 'Munir quote' and its extraordinary influence over those who argue for a 'secular Jinnah'. Containing independent and original research spanning five years, her book presents a compelling case for a Jinnah who was neither a secularist, nor a religionist, nor even a product of secular-Islam synthesis. This comprehensive work includes discussions on:

  • Jinnah's 'ideological' conversion
  • Iqbal's intellectual influence
  • The real meaning of the Two-Nation Theory
  • The Lahore Resolution as a 'deferred' partition demand
  • The Cabinet Mission Plan
  • The Objectives Resolution of 1949
  • Academic misconstruction of Jinnah

PLUS exclusive never-before-published research:

  • Account of the first and devastating use of the Munir quote in the Constituent Assembly debates of 1954
  • The untold story of the Constitution (Amendment) Bill 2006 to make the 11 August 1947 speech a substantive part of the Pakistani constitution (includes correspondence between S. Karim and late M.P. Bhandara)

... And much more
