Secular Jinnah

Family of the Heart - DIALOGUE & DISCUSSIONS 

The Quaid was a secularist in the true sense of the word, however, he capitulated to the rabid mullahs. I disagree with Dr. Jafari that identifying oneself as a Muslim, in Jinnah's case a cultural Muslim), automatically means fidelity to the core beliefs of a religion. 
Dr. Jafari makes a distinction between fundamentalists and others who may simply wish to abide by the dictates of their faith. Dare I assert that while fundamentalists are no doubt extreme in their views,  any one touting religious law based on centuries-old edicts that can't be debated in legislatures is an extremist, simply because that person does not accommodate any divergence of opinion.
