Shankar Sharan. Apparently, by all available evidence, Hindus of India upto March 1947 were led to ridicule Jinnah (and of course eulogise Gandhi, Nehru).
That was the end of Hindu leadership, self-importance and self-glory. Followers followed in same spirit. Never bothering for hard analyses, realistic calculation, and resulting tasks to tackle. Just preaching and ridiculing.
Nothing changed, even after such a horrible lessons of the Partition. After millions of good, educated, cultured Hindus sacrificed on the alter of ignorant leadership.
Since 1947, same preaching, ridiculing, self-praise remained the stock ‘policy’, internal and foreign.
Innocent Hindus continued to be sacrificed from Kashmir to Kerala, Gujarat to Assam.
No lessons learnt. Believer kind followers are still ravelling in pooh-poohing all and sundry opponents. And looking down everyone who cautions and request for reality check.
