Speaking at a webinar hosted by JNU – “India, Partition and Its Consequences: Remembering the Horrors of History” – Madhav claimed that Mohammad Ali Jinnah was a leader who had been allowed to “become a monster “during the struggle for freedom, and was” determined to divide India.
He said: âThe partition of India, unlike many other partitions observed in other countries at this time, was not simply a simple redrawing of bordersâ¦. The partition was not only a partition of territories but also of minds, which must be considered with the greatest seriousness and the greatest care. We must build a united Indian society.
