Picture of Pak. Muslims

Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan to-day [October 17] called upon Indian Muslims not to entertain a false feeling that Pakistan was formed for them as it was created by the British for those who “served” them. He was addressing a gathering of about 7,000 people at Jumma Masjid here [Ahmedabad] after Friday prayers. Observing that the formation of Pakistan had not helped the poor, Badshah Khan said Muslims here should consider the sad plight of those who had migrated to Pakistan. Ghaffar Khan said the poison of religious hatred was injected by the British before partition. Muslims had become so mad after the Muslim League that they were not prepared to hear him. But history had proved the truth. Pakistan was ultimately established but for whom? Badshah Khan asked. It was formed only for a few who served their own interests or for those who served the British and not for the poor Muslims. “Go and see what the condition of Muslims in Pakistan today is,” he told the gathering. “The condition of Hindus in India is also no better.” “Today when you are in difficulty, where is the Muslim League? It is I who realised your difficulty and came to meet you,” Ghaffar Khan said.
