MR. JINNAH dominated the foreign news section of the widely read American magazine “Time”, on Friday [April 19]. The magazine’s cover shows a composite picture of Mr. Jinnah superimposed on a map of India with the illustrations of two growling tigers facing a British lion. The picture bears the caption “His Muslim tiger wants to eat the Hindu cow”.
The journal asserts: “Today Mr. Jinnah revels in his one-man show. Nobody in all his Muslim League can be called number two or even number eight. He delights in the princely processions staged by his followers when he tours Muslim cities of Northern India. His buglers herald his arrival at railway stations. Band play ‘God Save The King’ because that is the only tune they know. …”
“Time” adds “the British policy of ‘divide and rule’ has been turned by Mr. Jinnah to the Pakistan demand ‘divide and quit’. The British Government has given India a unified defence and a unified region of internal free trade. … His Pakistan in the North-West and North-East of India would be an agricultural State, poor in resources and industry… .”
