The feature starts as Partition approaches and then in flashback the paper focuses on the foundation of the All-India Muslim League and the powerful contribution of the Ali Brothers, Allama Iqbal, and the Quaid-i-Azam.
It highlights the meteoric rise of Mr. Jinnah and looks at the people who influenced the political maneuvers of this period.
The feature recalls the pain, the tragedy, and sacrifice that were part of those years.
