Why do you have to love JINNAH ?

Tall and stately, but thin to the point of emaciation, languid and luxurious of habit, Mohammad Ali Jinnah's attenuated form is a deceptive sheath of a spirit of exceptional vitality and endurance. Somewhat formal and fastidious, and a little aloof and imperious of manner, the calm hauteur of his accustomed reserve but masks, for those who know him, a naive and eager humanity, an intuition quick and tender as a woman's, a humor gay and winning as a child's. Pre-eminently rational and practical, discreet and dispassionate in his estimate and acceptance of life, the obvious sanity and serenity of his worldly wisdom effectually disguise a shy and splendid idealism which is of the very essence of the man.
-Mrs Sarojini Naidu.

He was a 'Giver' .
He was a true 'leader' with amazing leadership capabilities, a leadership of a kind that he lead millions of people and on the other hand Gandhi was a humanist. It was only Jinnah who had the strength to face The British and to offer them a fight through Law and constitution.

Unlike Gandhi and other Hindu and Muslim leaders he did not change his language into Urdu or Hindi, Unlike these leaders He did not change his attire and never tried to prove anything with trivial and irrational (unsuccessful) resolutions of changes in attire or lifestyle started at that time. His logic and intellect were enough and he fought only with these two things.

I am a Pakistani and I really respect Gandhi for his humanistic approach.

But, I -LOVE- Jinnah ! and if given a choice I would prefer to be like Jinnah.

Because he is the only 'LEADER" that sub-continent has developed in last 100 years. He never hid his property, money or other possessions from the people of Pakistan and all these things which he earned as a lawyer through drastic hard work were donated and every penny of it was given to Pakistan. A large part of his Money was donated to Islamiya college Peshawar, then, to Sindh madrasa tul Islam and other institutions. MIND IT, THIS IS NO FICTION.

I want to share these quotes by Gandhi and Jinnah.

Gandhi : "If someone slaps you on your right cheek move forward your left one too."

Jinnah : "If someone slaps you for the first time it is their mistake.But, if someone slaps you for the second time then its your mistake."

My message to the so called liberal youth of Pakistan is, that, before you criticize Jinnah for making Pakistan or before you regret not being a part of India, think about your own political sensibility and knowledge. There is a difference between reviewing Chick flicks and Jinnah.
