The speaker Shri Avinash Vasishtha discusses in detail the Role of Muslims in partition of India as presented by Shri Yuvraj Krishna ji, an eminent Author and Historian, in his book “Understanding Partition”.
This book shatters many myths about the Partition of India and gives an insightful description of the separatist movement in India which led to partition. The book chronologically unlocks the conduct and intent of those who were behind the partition of India. Leaders like Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel, Mahatma Gandhi, Mountbatten, Jinnah and others are brought to life in this book and their roles reassessed with deepest insights.
It also draws a contrast between undivided India and partitioned India by starting with a post partition happening when the governments were struggling with the problems of partition, refugees, and their rehabilitation. It is a very detailed analysis of a great work.
