Some of the claims are clearly contradictory, and are very effectively demonstrated by the author.

The only question that troubles me is, that did the forefathers have any other choice? Especially if we accept the authors narrative that independence was thrusted upon us?

The Making of Pakistan : a study in nationalism, by K.K. Aziz.

Surly we had to survive, and in order to survive we created this magnificent identity myth. All identities are selective reading of history in my opinion, so we little choice in that matter.

The real mistake was sanctifying this created identity as this creates fundamentalism and self delusion on a national level, which once it sets in, is pretty difficult to destroy, as the author found out for himself when he published his groundbreaking study. Like How did a martial Muslim race not fight for independence choosing instead to remain loyal to their new masters the British?

The Partition of India can be understood by the Pakistani attitude of the secession of East Pakistan when they claim that Bangladesh was never meant to remain united from the beginning.

Surely now the Hindu logic when granting Muslims their own land can now be understood? The author makes a pretty significant statement about lying in the textbooks.


He makes a direct correlation with the Pakistani profile and the persistent inconsistent textbooks that produced it. The assertion is pretty relevant in my opinion, as it does explain the self righteousness, hostile, self praise and self glorification as general attributes of a Pakistani.

This is a "must read" for any reader who'd like to read as to how the history of Pakistan was treated; how the fallacies were developed and how the facts were either omitted or destroyed in our textbooks.

Aziz was born to Abdul Aziz, a barrister and a historian in his own right. The book ends with 'Is anyone listening', so far it seems no one is and also that no one is really interested in listening. All of his research material was confiscated.

Lucknow agreement was contained in the famous Montagu announcement of 20 August , the pith and substance of which was the sentence: 'The policy of His Majesty's Government, with which the Government of India are in complete accord, is that of the increasing association of Indians in every branch of the administration, and the gradual development of self-governing institutions, with a view to the progressive realization of responsible government in India as an integral part of the British Empire.

His character, ethical values, the knowledge and interpretation of Law put him the on the pedestal, no one has reached so far and will be very difficult to supersede in the future. Recommend 0.
