    Comparing Gandhi and Jinnah is an extremely complex exercise but important for they were, or rather became, the two foci of the freedom movement. Gandhi was doubtless of a very different mould, but he too, like Jinnah, had gained eminence and successfully transited from his Kathiawari origins to become a London barrister before acquiring a. Jinnah, then aged about fourteen, came up to him and said, "Don't play marbles in the dust; it spoils your clothes and dirties your hands. We must stand up and play cricket."

      From the Prologue. The extended confrontation between Mohammed Ali Jinnah (–) and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (–) was one of the great dramas of the twentieth century. His latest book, Gandhi’ Hinduism: The struggle against Jinnah’s Islam, appeared last month. A joint book on these towering individuals is not an undertaking free of perils. Even an accomplished writer could take the wrong road. Akbar has navigated the turbulent Gandhi-Jinnah waters with exemplary understanding and literary skill.

    If Gandhi has the Congress, Mr. Jinnah must have the Muslim League. The session of the Congress must be followed by a session of the League. If the Congress passes a Resolution of 17, words, the Muslim League’s Resolution must exceed it by at least a thousand words. Jinnah insists that Gandhi should admit that he is a Hindu.   The chapter "Jinnah: Lost and Found" is a repetition of what author has already written out earlier in the book. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know unbiased, fair, impartial and objective history of these two great political figures of South Asia. Jinnah vs. Gandhi4/4(17).

The extended confrontation between Mohammed Ali Jinnah (–) and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (–) was one of the great dramas of the twentieth century. The book is well researched and speaks volumes about how ill-informed we are when we think and label Jinnah/Gandhi for the partition.
