Jinnah versus Jinnah, Pakistani versus Indian perspectives

Deccan Herald (Bangalore, August 14, 2005) is reporting that a documentary "Jinnah versus Jinnah", with voice-over by renowned advertising personality Alyque Padamsee, tries to "unravel questions regarding the the Qaid-e-Azam's ideology". This 45-minute film, produced by Zee News in collaboration with News Watch Asia, has been anchored by acclaimed actor Irrfan and was scheduled for telecast on August 14 on Zee News says a report titled 'Documentary on Jinnah for I-Day eve'. "The film portrays the lesser known facts about Jinnah, which people in India would like to know," Padamsee is quoted saying. DH News Service added, "The documentary is another path-breaking effort of Zee News to look at important events through the eyes of dispassionate observers. Indiatelevision.com has this report on Jinnah Vs.Jinnah. It says:
The 45-minute documentary, to be telecast at 8 pm, attempts to find some answers to the controversial historical personality and, in the process, raise some new questions. At the least, it promises to inform, said script-writer Anmol Saxena of News Watch Asia, the makers of the documentary. Was Jinnah a secular at heart? ... Was Jinnah communal from the very beginning? Or, is it too simplistic to categories his life span into one ideology? Or is he mystified in one nation and ignored in another? ... The film, rich in its footage from London and Karachi, has been produced by Zee News in collaboration with News Watch Asia comprsing some senior print medium jounalist like Raju Santhanam. While Mohammad Ali Jinnah has been given the status of Quad e Azam in Pakistan, very little is known about him in India. The film interviews prominent historians of Pakistan like Ayesha Jalal, London-based sub- continent researcher Syed Hasan Khan, British historian David Page, besides Mushurral Hassan and Professor Bipin Chandra to name a few. The film has also sourced letters from the archives to indicate that Jinnah and Winston Churchill were in secret correspondence as both were working towards a common cause of not to give the entire nation of India to the Congress.
