Ishtiaq Ahmed on What kind of State was Pakistan supposed to be?

Jinnah’s Prerogatives

Dr Ishtiaq Ahmed, Daily Times, December 10, 2017

I fully understand the concern of a whole range of intellectuals representing an assortment of liberals and leftists who steadfastly and heroically keep writing that Jinnah was a secularist, he wanted Pakistan to be a secular state or at least an inclusive Muslim state. As far as an inclusive Muslim state is concerned they are right to a point, but they are dead wrong when they assert that Jinnah was a secularist or that he wanted Pakistan to be a secular state.
