Cover of: Pakistan or partition of India | B. R. Ambedkar
About the Book

One of the best books to have a deeper understanding about the partition of the Indian subcontinent; in a very sharp language which destroys every realm of political correctness as depicted by Marxist historians .
The Muslim league resolution for demand of separate state of Pakistan as homeland of Muslims doesn't perplex Ambedkar rather he thinks that demand for Pakistan is not the result of mere political distemper, which will pass away with the efflux of time ; Ambedkar sees it as a characteristic in the biological sense of the term, which the Muslim body politic has developed in the same manner as an organism develops a characteristic.
Ambedkar have widely different views on partition from that of Gandhi & congress elite and consider the slogan of Hindu -Muslim unity by Gandhi as fraud and he digs deep into the perpetual divide between Hindus and Muslims in political ; social ; spiritual realms which he reads in historical ;political and religious terms and attribute it to the towering divide between two communities and their different visions about the destiny of the Future independent Nation.

May 24, 2016 Edited by Hemant Kumar this is more correct description about book and match well with its content .Though his language is sharp but it comes from the realistic view of society rather than desired Utopian vision of society .Marxists and left leaning people will find it very hard to swallow and would act as a apologist on behalf of muslim league or be at odds with the content of books but history can have and must be open to different interpretation .
