Former chief of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh KC Sudarshan has said that Mohamed Ali Jinnah was not a fundamentalist Muslim but became one due to Gandhi.
Addressing a function in Madhya Pradesh, Sudarshan said that Jinnah was basically a nationalistic person and was a moderate leader who earlier held secular views.
Sudarshan said that Jinnah got bitter because he was ignored for years. "It was due to Gandhi's mistakes that Jinnah changed his political stand and became a pro-Islamic state leader who ultimately divided India".
"Gandhi supported Khilafat movement and took the help of the fiery Ali brothers that upset Jinnah and other moderates". Sudarshan, wha former sarsanghchalak (head) of the RSS was speaking at Timarni town in Harda district.
Sudarshan said that Jinnah was a progressive Muslim who stood for unity and integrity of country and remained in Congress until 1927 but later left the party and was held responsible for the partition.
The speech on Gandhi and Nehru's developmental vision was part of the Bhausahab Bhuskute memorial lecture series organised in Timarni on January 18. Earlier, ex-president of BJP LK Advani and former party leader Jaswant Singh's comments on Jinnah have also caused furore.
