Pakistan’s cure: Punjab University Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran has said that the real purpose of fanning communal disputes was to detract attention from real issues.

On the occasion, Dr Kamran said that nations who did not study history spent meaningless life.

Dr Iqbal Chawla said that the most important of the three Viceroys, has been sadly neglected. He said that though Wavell was not in favour of India’s division into two countries, he was, however, strongly in favour of the minority rights in India and he wanted to carry it out all by releasing the pent up political energies in India which had been dammed up the British preoccupation with the World War II. He said his support for minority rights brought him into conflict with the overlords of his own establishments, the Officer of the Secretary of State for India, in London. He further said that the Wavell Plan and the follow-up Simla Conference (1945) were all Wavell’s brainchild engaging the Indians in the country’s political process.
He said that a close study of all the important documentary collections concerning the Indian affairs reveals that Mr Jinnah’s determination to achieve an independent country (Pakistan) and the Congress’s failed efforts (Rajgopalcharia Formula, Gandhi-Jinnah Talks etc.) failed to sway him away from his stated goal.
