PAMSA seminar - Week 13

Mazilgah asjid iidet led to the…?
G. M Syed? regretted it later.
Manzilgah controversy durig late 9’s, hidus ad uslis ere liig together,
zamindari system, many times hindus ould hadle uslis’ lad et. G. M. “yed is the
founder of modern sindhi nationalism. He believed that we needed partition in order to
gain autonomy for muslims. Chief minister of sindh - Allahbakhs Soomro was against
partition shot dead in shikarpur shot by pir pagara hurr after Pakistan was created,
G. M. saeed was jailed even though he was a supporter of partition. Then he realized his
mistake.
Ho oual idetities ere eig osolidated i late 9’s ad early 9’s.
Another pertinent incident Jinnah gives the call for direct action day 1946
What happens? Huge rioting, massacre.
Divisions/communal divides begin by the end of non cooperation and khilafat
movements.
Jinnah wanted to show that he can also command mass sentiments/popularity, similar
to gadhi’s oilizatio of ass politis/setiets. Ufortuately the route Jiah
took was based on the communal divides. At the end of direct action day, to people like
Nehru and sardar patel, Jinnah was creating unnecessary trouble, that they were willing
to negotiate to a certain extent on matters of autonomy within a united Indian
federation, but Jinnah was really stretching it. According to Nehru, patel etc, Jinnah was
playing with fire/open call to murder.
Jinnah is trying to signal to Gandhi, congress and the british that he can also
reate/ause troule like Jiah sa ogress as ofte doig i the for of hartaals,
non cooperation movements etc he wanted to show that he, too can summon the
masses into action. This is about power politics. Jinnah had always remained a man of
constitution/remained within the realm of constitutional politics he wants to signal to
the congress and british that just because he remains within constitutional politics, that
is not a sign of his weakness, and so as evidence of his strength to mobilize the masses
he calls direct action day.
Local level, congress was also appealing to communal sentiments.

Earlier, Jinnah had said about Gandhi that bringing religion into politics is not a good
idea, no matter what you call it (himsa etc) at the end of the day it will lead to violence
and conflict. One of the critiques of gandhis approach.
The way british tried to quote muslim league during the war we should’t lose sight of
this fact british needed a diff player ho ould hallege ogress’ legitiay. A major
reaso as to hy usli league’s status/profile ireased.
Muslim league was a party that was trying to revive its power after the humiliating
defeat in 1936/1937 elections, by appealing to nativist, communal sentiments very
easy/popular political ploy.
Another contradiction in terms usli league’s top leadership are shia uslis –
agha khanis, sir zafarullah khan, Jinnah himself. So theres a lot of complexity in the
politis of late 9’s. Eg late 9’s – shia sunni tensions arise in central india (UP,
lucknow etc).
There was a pro shia majlis that actually appealed to the congress, because they said
they ould’t trust usli league.
Broader trend serious communal rupture, consolidation of communal identities, no. of
incidents in which sectarian and communal tensions flare up and come bubbling up to
the surface, and sets the tone for what would happen in the post colonial period for
india and Pakistan.
Then what was the point of advocating for partition, if, according to the critique by
ambedkar and other key figures, creation of Pakistan would achieve nothing, because if
partition serves the function to protect muslim interests, then in muslim majority
provinces, their interests will be protected anyway, and in muslim minority provinces,
the minorities will not be protected whether Pakistan is created or not.
Jiah’s purpose for advocating partition/in his mind, he thought that they would
protect the interests of the minorities in the muslim majority regions that would come
under Pakistan.
Jinnah and muslim league were tryna leverage support in muslim majority provinces to
argue for greater protections ..?
Minority provinces will have greater representation than their actual size. (north Indian
muslims).
Muslim majority provinces muslim league was willing to trade its majority, but in order
to do that, it had to ensure first that it had the support of muslim majority provinces,
hih it DIDN’T. hih is hy the series of oes udertaken by Jinnah and muslim
league efforts to energize the northern Indian muslims, and balochistan, overtures to
khan of kalat

Description
PAMSA seminar - Week 13 th Thursday, 16 November, 2017 Manzilgah masjid incident led to the? G. M Syed? regretted it later. Manzilgah controversy during late 1930s, hindus and muslims were living together, zamindari system, many times hindus would handle muslims land etc. G. M. Syed is the founder of modern sindhi nationalism. He believed that we needed partition in order to gain autonomy for muslims. Chief minister of sindh - Allahbakhs Soomro was against partition shot dead in shikarpur shot by pir pagara hurr after Pakistan was created, G. M. saeed was jailed even though he was a supporter of partition. Then he realized his mistake. How communal identities were being consolidated in late 1930s and early 1940s. Another pertinent incident Jinnah gives the call for direct action day 1946 What happens? Huge rioting, massacre. Divisions/communal divides begin by the end of non cooperation and khilafat movements. Jinnah wanted to show that he can also command mass sentiments/popularity, similar to gandhis mobilization of mass politics/sentiments. Unfortunately the route Jinnah took was based on the communal divides. At the end of direct action day, to people like Nehru and sardar patel, Jinnah was creating unnecessary trouble, that they were willing to negotiate to a certain extent on matters of autonomy within a united Indian federation, but Jinnah was really stretching it. According to Nehru, patel etc, Jinnah was playing with fire/open call to murder. Jinnah is trying to signal to Gandhi, congress and the british that he can also create/cause trouble like Jinnah saw congress as often doing in the form of hartaals, non cooperation movements etc he wanted to show that he, too can summon the masses into action.

One of the critiques of gandhis approach. The way british tried to quote muslim league during the war we shouldnt lose sight of this fact british needed a diff player who could challenge congress legitimacy. A major reason as to why muslim leagues status/profile increased. Muslim league was a party that was trying to revive its power after the humiliating defeat in 1936/1937 elections, by appealing to nativist, communal sentiments very easy/popular political ploy.
