Jitendra tells Farooq to re-read history before commenting on Jinnah’s role in Partition

NEW DELHI: In a sharply-worded criticism against Jammu-Kashmir former Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah, for his statement on Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Sunday said that the former should ‘re-read the history’ before commenting on the role of Mr Jinnah in the creation of Pakistan.

He was responding to Mr Abdullah’s statement that Mr Jinnah was not in favour of creating separate nation, and blamed leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel and Maulana Azad were responsible for the partition.  (AGENCIES)
