Pakistan Or Partition Of India Reviews
if he were alive today, he would have been called communal and not recognised as minority leader, presents many facts which hurt the so called western idea of "secularism" which is alien to our society
This is one of the epics from Dr. Ambedkar. Written in 1945 the book really explains the dynamics of Hindu Mahasabha and Muslim League and how Congress and British Government played a role in partition. Although I see this book takes you to the unheard side of partition, it is interesting on how linguistic approach was chosen for a division of something that is unsure if it existed. Dr. Ambedkar takes a fine approach of giving a clarity of situation instead of been judgmental on the partition. No wonder the man was chosen to write our constitution. Of course if the war of majority and minority is kept away, the partition and its tragedy can be ready more fluently.This book has just made me add Dr. Ambedkar as one of the author who should be read.
the book is a solid account of the Hindu Muslim narrative that ultimately led to the partition of the British colony of India. ambedkar makes a strong case for a distinct and incompatible Muslim identity and questions severely the fallacious congress idea of a Hindu Muslim unity. a must read for people who are interested to take a closer look at the partition theme and how the congress and the Muslim league both did not serve the needs of the people whom they were representing.
Dr.Ambedkar is probably the greatest Indian social-political thinker of the 20th century. His reasoning, his exhaustiveness, his knowledge are a joy to the reader. And for what could have been a dry subject, is made extremely readable by Dr.Ambedkar. This book examines all the facets of the Pakistan-question and the 2-nation theory. Written in 1945, it is pertinent even today.When i read books from those era (including this one), say Ramdhari Dinkar's classic 'Sanskriti ke Char adhyay' or say the recent John Keay's 'India Discovered', i find many statements which so-called seculars of India today will call communal. He has not spared the Muslims in pointing out to their unneeded aggression and intolerance or the Hindus in their muddled-reciprocation or appeasement. But the truth is the truth. Truth is not controversial, we human beings are immature.
Excellent book by Dr. Ambedkar
Wonderful insights about the partition of India and why it was the logical and best thing.
Dr. Ambedkar was so clear about Islam and Muslim.Chapter Four he has traced the history of Muslim invasions and the butchering , He refused to embrace Islam or Christianity and instead chose another Buddhism. When will his followers understand Ambedkar's logic behind this decision?
If somebody really wants to study causes behind the Partition of India and plague of Communalism , then this book is indispensable. This is very well-argued work and will surely provoke readers to think differently.
