Tinderbox -The Past and Future Of Pakistan by M.J. Akbar
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Pakistan was not born across a breakfast table. It was the culmination of a search for what might be called "Muslim space" that began during the decline of the Mughal empire, by a North Indian elite driven by fear of the future and pride in the past. Mohammad Ali Jinnah, master of the endgame, wanted, in essence a secular nation with a Hindu majority. The father of Pakistan did not realize there was another claimant to the nation he had delivered, Maulana Maududi founder of the Jamaat-e-Islami, and the Godfather of Pakistan.
