Muhammad Ahmad Said Khan Chhatari - Disquiet With Jinnah

Disquiet With Jinnah

Nawab of Chhatari attended third sitting of the open session of Muslim League which was held in the Pandal at Lalbagh, Lucknow, on Sunday, 17 October 1936, at 10:30 a.m. and was presided by Jinnah. The meeting was also attended by Maulana Shaukat Ali, Moulana Hasrat Mohani, Maulana Zafar Ali Khan, Dr Syed Husain, Raja Gazanfar Ali Khan, Khan Bahadur Kuli Khan, Fazlul Huq, Nawab Jamshed Ali Khan, and others.

Nawab of Chhatari expressed disquiet with the Jinnah's adherence to the Resolution of 23 March 1940. Jinnah asked Chhatari to come out "with a definite scheme of his own" and promised that he would bear that scheme in mind while making a final decision in this regard on 22 October 1940. Chhatari suggested that "We must get as many Hindus out of the Congress as possible to join hands with us". His suggestion clearly implied establishment of an all-India federation. The League was not unanimous on Pakistan even after the Lahore resolution.

Famous quotes containing the word disquiet:

    I pity the men whose natural pleasures are burthens, and who fly from joy ... as if it was really an evil in itself.... Poor unfortunate creature that he is! as if the causes of anguish in the heart were not enow—but he must fill up the measure, with those of caprice; and not only walk in a vain shadow,—but disquiet himself in vain too.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
