This is our beloved Quaid !! How we miss him today when his party is hijacked by sood khor vultures, who can only think of metro buses when the Ummah is being decimated. This is the most dignified, honourable and tiger like stance of Quaid e Azam on Palestine, most of you have never seen! Read and feel the surge of dignity and honor passing through your veins and a gush of love and respect for this Soldier of Rasul Allah (sm).
He did NOT have a country of his own at that time, still he stood tall and fought for Palestine fiercely!! Allahu Akbar !
On October 12, 1945, Mr Jinnah said at Quetta,
“Every man and woman of the Muslim world will die before Jewry seizes Jerusalem. I hope the Jews will not succeed in their nefarious designs and I wish Britain and America should keep their hand off and then I will see how the Jews conquer Jerusalem. The Jews, over half a million, have already been accommodated in Jerusalem against the wishes of the people. May I know which other country has accommodated them? If domination and exploitation are carried now, there will be no peace and end of wars”.
Referring to the efforts made by President Truman to put pressure on British government to allow 100,000 Jews into Palestine, Mr. Jinnah said,
“here comes the President of a great country thinking entirely of Jewry and the interests of Jews. President Truman had the effrontery to put pressure on the British government to allow a million Jews into Palestine, while he has agreed, after a long period of vacillation, to allow only a 100 Indians to migrate to the United States of America”.
When a section of the audience shouted, ‘shame’, ‘shame’, Mr Jinnah turned around and exclaimed:
“It is not shame. It is monstrous and criminal. Why doesn’t President Truman take one million Jews into USA? The reason is that the Jews do not want a National Home in Palestine. What they want is to reconquer Palestine, which they lost 2000 years ago, with the help of British bayonets and American money”
Now if we just translate all the above mentioned statements of Quaid, he would sound like a Jihadi Mullah. This is why we don’t read this history in our books. Because Quaid –e-Azam wanted a Pakistan that would work for and fight for the entire muslim ummah.
In an interview with Duncan Hooper, Reuter’s correspondent, Mr. Jinnah warned that, if Palestine was partitioned:
“There was bound to be the gravest disaster and unprecedented conflict, not only between the Arabs and the Authority that would undertake to enforce the Partition plan, but the entire Muslim world will revolt… Pakistan will have no other course left but to give its fullest support to the Arabs”.
These are some direct quotes from Quaid’s speeches:
“May I point out to Great Britain that this question of Palestine, if not fairly and squarely met, boldly and courageously decided, is going to be the turning point in the history of the British Empire. I am sure I am speaking not only of the Mussalmans of India but of the world, and all sections of right thinking and fair-minded people will agree when I say that Great Britain will be digging its grave if she fails to honour her original proclamation, promises and intentions-pre-war.”

“The way in which the British Government have hitherto dealt with the Arabs is the greatest blot on their national honour.”
M A Jinnah on British Government’s Policy (New Times, November 27, 1938).
“But no nation, no people who are worth living as a nation, can achieve anything great without making great sacrifices, such as the Arabs of Palestine are making. All our sympathies are with those valiant martyrs who are fighting the battle of freedom against usurpers.”
MA Jinnah’s Presidential Address at the Annual Session
of the All India Muslim League held at Patna (26-29 December, 1938).
“If President Roosevelt, under the pressure of the powerful world Jewry, commits the blunder of forcing the British Government to do injustice to the Arabs in Palestine, it will set the whole Muslim world ablaze from one end to another. Grave wrongs had already been done to the Arabs. If the Jewish immigration is allowed to continue, I have no doubt that not only the Muslim League will revolt but the whole Muslim world will revolt.”
Speech of M A Jinnah at Strachey Hall Aligarh (10 March, 1944).
“We cannot remain silent and we must assure the Arabs that Indian Muslims will stand by them.”
