Jaswant Singh launches book in Islamabad

The function organised by Oxford University Press (OUP) at a local hotel in Islamabad on Wednesday, April 14, to launch former Indian foreign minister and Bhartia Janta Party leader Jaswant Singh’s book – Jinnah – India, Partition, Independence – turned out to be a gathering of galaxy of politicians, intellectuals, historians, journalists, diplomats, foreigners, human rights activists and Foreign Office officials, who put questions to the author, lauded his efforts for bringing the two neighbours closer, and believed that role of Pakistan’s founder needed to be reassessed.

Poor sound system, especially frequent interruptions in the proceedings due to faulty microphone, coupled with lack of seating arrangements marred the function. Also, the banner put up on the stage fell on ground many a time.
