This book comprehensively covers all the aspects and angles, and the machinations that ultimately culminated in the partition of India, and creation of Pakistan.

The book begins (Chapter-1) by deliberating on the questions of country, state, nation, nationhood, and nationality; and discusses India, Pakistan, Hindus and Muslims in that context.

Chapter-2 deals with the interesting contrast on the attitudes of the Muslim leadership in the Muslim-majority provinces on creation of Pakistan with that of the Muslim-minority provinces like UP—the latter being the prime movers.

Chapter-3 brings out the REAL reasons and details all the different factors responsible for the creation of Pakistan, categorised under three main heads: (a)British Vested Interests; (b)Islam, Muslim-mindset and Muslim leadership; and (c)Clueless Congress Leadership.

Chapter-4 gives an overview of the main Muslim political parties; and the biographical details of prominent Muslim leaders.

Chapter-5 presents detailed ‘Timelines of Run-up to the Partition’ starting from 1881.

Chapter-6 ‘Timelines of the Partition Process’ brings out all the interesting happenings leading to the actual partition triggered by Attlee’s declaration of “Quit India” resolve on 20 February 1947.

Chapter-7 discusses the ‘Diabolical British–Muslim League Design’ to ensure a highly truncated India by hiving off all of Punjab, Bengal and Assam to Pakistan.

Chapter-8 deals with the arduous task of partition of assets between India and Pakistan ably handled under the guidance of Sardar Patel.

The last chapter (Chapter-9) deals with the horror of partition and the irresponsible way in which it was handled by all the parties responsible—the British, the Congress leadership, and the Muslim leadership—especially the British.
