Biography of Mohammed Ali Jinnah, the founder of modern Pakistan is told through flashbacks as his soul tries to find eternal rest. The flashbacks start in 1947 as Jinnah pleads for a separate nation from the Muslim regime, infuriating Lord Mountbatten. Mountbatten then tries to enlist Gandhi & Nehru to persuade Jinnah to stop his efforts. Gandhi sides with Jinnah, which upsets Nehru. However, Jinnah turns down the offer to become prime minister and the film takes another slide back to 1916, which reveals all of the political implications that have occurred.Written by

I saw Jinnah the movie, searched goggle for Jinnah and did Indian History 1847-1947 in US University Paper..
The comments I see coming from Indians who have grown up hating Pakistan and Pakistanis are obvious. So is the adulation from Pakistanis for their founder.
Is anyone surprised? I am not.
However, I happened to have the opportunity to be taught by a certain Dr. Kumar who was a female visiting professor from University of Bombay in 1994 when I took Indian History 1847-1947 as an elective senior yr course. And was taught from 7 different books. all from several different authors from India, Pakistan, UK and USA. and that was a start of my education on the subcontinent and its politicians that created India nd Pakistan today....
i find the movie Jinnah simply fantastic. Its more closer to the truth then anything else coming from Indians who hate him, and many westerners that have a very negative image of any leader whose name starts with Mohammad.
please goggle Jinnah. and read up and research yourself. then see the movie.
i am saddened by the hate in hearts of Indians, especially Hindu Indians who have chosen the path similar to Islamic Jihadi Taliban sympathizers in the Muslim world...as when i visited Pakistan as a guest and met several Hindu Pakistanis, they were all very well off and had prospered in Pakistan.
Pakistan has its share of problems, but since Soviet occupation of Afganistan, the country has been DE-stabilized by US and Afgan interference. I am saddened by the distortions and lies spread about Jinnah and Pakistan by Indian Hindu hate mongers.
thank you, George
