The book Jinnah & Gandhi endeavored to highlight the prominent aspects of the lives of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Mahatma Gandhi to his readers.

The two towering personalities have had profound impacts on the history of South Asia. Without them, the history of India and Pakistan would be incomplete. In his book, Dr. Rai presents a lucid comparison that clearly shows that the personality of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was the sole force behind the significant contributions to the Pakistan Movement. Comparing both figures, he robustly argues that Jinnah was more successful in achieving his objectives compared to Mahatma Gandhi.

The book clarifies that its purpose is not to prove one leader superior to the other but to demonstrate which leader achieved the most for their nation. The book enlightens readers to conclude that Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was the singular entity whose efforts turned the dream of Allama Iqbal’s vision of Pakistan into a reality.

It is an important research book published after Professor Dr. Sikandar Hayat’s book on Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah in 2014, providing comprehensive citations on every critical point. This book is of immense importance to researchers, educators, and students, particularly those researching this subject.
