On the right you see the titles of two new publications that have just hit the stalls in Pakistan:
پاکستان کا قومی ترانہ از عقیل عباس جعفری
Secular Jinnah and Pakistan by Slaeena Karim
On the face value they may not seem to have anything in common, since one is just about the national anthem of Pakistan whereas the other seems to have a broader scope as it might be telling us all about Quaid-i-Azam’s vision of Pakistan. Personally, however, I see these two books as interconnected (but I am not suggesting in any way that the authors would also agree with this). This will be discussed in the next post.
