Jinnah's condolence message on the death of Gandhi
January 30, 1948
am shocked to learn of the most dastardly attack on the life of
Mr. Gandhi, resulting in his death. There can be no controversy
in the face of death.
Whatever our political differences,
he was one of the greatest men produced by the Hindu community,
and a leader who commanded their universal confidence and respect.
I wish to express my deep sorrow,
and sincerely sympathize with the great Hindu community and his
family in their bereavement at this momentous, historical and critical
juncture so soon after the birth of freedom for Hindustan and Pakistan.
The loss to the Dominion of India
is irreparable, and it will be very difficult to fill the vaccum
created by the passing away of such a great man at this moment.
