Jinnah was called ‘cold’ and ‘distant’ by opponents, but was he actually? THIS video reveals it all
Social media users have been pleasantly surprised to see this side of their Quaid.
Recently, a researcher and educator, Meraj Hasan, shared an old video of Quaid-e- Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah on his official Twitter account. The founder of Pakistan was often described as cold and distant by many politicians.
However, the video shared by Meraj Hasan showed the side of Jinnah’s personality that no one has ever seen.
Mountbatten and several Indian politicians always described Jinnah as cold and distant.

While explaining the video’s background, the researcher tweeted, “This video was recorded on the 5th of April 1947 when Jinnah and Mountbatten met for the first time in an informal meeting. It was before the discussion started. Mountbatten insisted on having Quaid-e-Azam stood in the middle, and then Jinnah delivered the famous line that “the photograph was going to be of a rose between two thorns.”

Hassan added, “Jinnah used it to state that he considered the Mountbattens’ as an impediment to his goals. Mountbatten himself is the authority of this quote.”
Social media users have been pleasantly surprised to see this side of their Quaid. Many people are thanking Meraj for sharing this amazing video.
Is this a video of the “rose between two thorns?” It is certainly the same occasion. If so, remarkable. Thanks for sharing.
