Indo-Pak relations have defied all attempts at improvement ever since the partition of British India in 1947. Many of the internal and external problems faced by Pakistan today are, directly or indirectly, the consequences of the two-nation theory propped by its leadership through the years of growth of the Pakistan idea till today.
Author has traced with great acumen and deep insight the evolution of the two-nation theory from the inception of the idea of a separate electorate for the muslims in India through the concept of a separate geographical territory for them and right into the conception and birth of Pakistan. He debunks the popular notion that the two-nation theory was at the very roots of the concept of Pakistan.
