Mohd Ali Jinnah and the Indian law?

I have never been more shocked! Ok, let me spell it out here – Mohammas Ali Jinnah used his wit/might/smarts to finally create Pakistan on the basis that Muslims should have a separate homeland, which many Muslims I now know lament now. Of course, now most of the Indians do not want to really have it all combined back in as we are doing fine and every other country in the vicinity is having its own religious problem.. so everyone should live well in their home and be peaceful but we want to grow on our own.

Now, if he had lived in India, guess what law would have been applicable to him (remember the fact that Indian Muslims are ruled under the Muslim Civil Code and NOT the Hindu Law)?

Mohd. Ali Jinnah belonged to the Khoja community – and they are governed by the Hindu Law! They have, in all these years, not bothered to come under the Muslim law.

If there was an irony of great proportions, then this might be one. Millions of lives lost, millons of kids lost, for what??
