Quaid-e- Azam, Mohammed Ali Jinnah(Pakistan’s first Governor General)

Translation by Ranu

Once a little boy asked Jinnah: Why do you want to partition India, we are the same people?

Jinnah sat for a few minutes, stood up, picked up a glass of water and took a sip. He then called the lad who asked him the question of partition. He asked the Hindu boy to drink the water from the same glass, the boy refused and went back to his seat.

He then offered a Muslim boy to drink from the same glass. This boy drank the water.

He told the boy, this is why I want the partition of India.

He was very popular with the people of Pakistan. If he shook hands with someone, that person would tell his friends and relatives: ‘I shook hands with Mr. Jinnah.”
