Jinnah - Speeches And Statements 1947-1948
||S. M. Burke
Table of contents Foreword
The last year of Mohammad Ali Jinnah's life saw the culmination of his mission and the formative phase of the state he had created. He was then the Governor-General of Pakistan and President of the constituent Assembly. These speeches and statements are essential for understanding his vision of Pakistan.
Was it to be a democracy or a theocracy? What were to be the guiding principles of foreign policy and economic emancipation, the basis of centre-province relations, the language problem, and the role of civil and military bureaucracy? The image of Pakistan, emerging from these speeches and statements, is that of a modern social welfare state ensuring equal opportunities for all, regardless of religion, race and region.
