In the second session of the Global Thinkers of the International Discussion Series, join Faisal Devji of the Faculty of History and St Antony’s College for a discussion of the international thought of Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

Jinnah was a lawyer, a politician, and the founder of modern Pakistan. Faced with the serious problems of a young country, he tackled Pakistan’s problems with authority. He was not regarded as merely the Governor-General, and is revered as the father of the nation. He worked hard until overpowered by age and disease in Karachi, the place of his birth, in 1948.
