India's partition can be classified as one of the most scarring events of the twentieth century. It has deeply affected the psyche of more than four generations in the nation. Jinnah: India - Partition Independence talks about the possible reasons for the partition, though a single and definite answer ceases to exist. The author, Jaswant Singh, starts off by talking about Jinnah's political journey. Jinnah was a strong proponent of unity among Hindus and Muslims but eventually he was the sole voice of the Muslim community in the country.
