Niradbabu On Jinnah

"I must set down at this point that Jinnah is the only man who came out with success and honor from the ignoble end of the British Empire in India. He never made a secret of what he wanted, never prevaricated, never compromised, and yet succeeded in inflicting unmitigated defeat on the British Government and the Indian National Congress. He achieved something which not even he could have believed to be within reach in 1946."

- From Thy Hand, Great Anarch!, the second volume of Nirad Chaudhuri's autobiography. Quoted by Nasim Zehra in a rather opinionated piece for the Media Monitors Network.
