Maulana Azad was gifted with such a clear head and his clarity of thought is demonstrated throughout this book. No need to say that the book also failed to honor the role of Jinnah in the events. Maulana Azad was an important leader of both the Congress as well as of Muslims.
Azad discusses about how politics, more than religion, was responsible for the partition, and how India gained freedom but failed to utilize it to its maximum advantage.
