|A leader of the people is their
servant (Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him). The personally of Jinnah
mirrored this Hiddah perfectly. He lived and died for his people. He served
those whom he led like their true leader - a true servant. He was a leader
of a different breed. He did not degrade his people or treat them as rabble.
He respected them and in turn received all their love and respect.
It was undoubtedly the Quaid’s great leadership that made a forlorn scattered multitude into a nation. Here are some views of some other persons about MA Jinnah as leader.
"Jinnah is the most important man in Asia because he can sway the battle this way or that way as he chooses. His 100 million Muslims will march to the left, to the right, to the front, to the rear at his binding and nobody else’s - that is the point. If Gandhi goes, there is always Nehru, or Rajagopalchari, or Patel or a dozen others. But if Jinnah goes, who is there?" (Beverly Nichols, British author and reporter, 1943)
"Mr. M A Jinnah himself was more
advanced than most of his colleagues of the Muslim League. Indeed he stood
head and shoulders above them and had therefore become the indispensable
leader and eventually he became the Muslim League." (Nehru,
Discovery of India)
