Indore, Aug 25: Former RSS chief K S Sudarshan said on Monday, Aug 24 that Pakistan founder Mohammad Ali Jinnah was committed to an undivided India.

Sudarshan said, "Jinnah had many facets. If you read history then you will come to know that Jinnah was with Lok Manya Tilak and was totally dedicated to the nation. And when Gandhi started the Khilafat movement, with the idea that currently we are opposing the British and if Muslims join in then their support will help gain independence."

"But at that time Jinnah opposed it saying that if the Caliph in Turkey has been dethroned what has India got to do with it. That time nobody listened to him, which saddened him. So he quit the Congress and left for England and only returned in 1927," said Sudarshan.

When asked about Jaswant Singh's expulsion from BJP, he refused to comment saying only, "It is an internal matter of that party."

Earlier, Jaswant singh was thrown out of the BJP for his praise for Jinnah.
