Jinnah was a secular leader, Patel, Gandhi and Nehru were communal: BJP's CK Bose

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) West Bengal vice president CK Bose on January 21 sparked controversy with his comments on erstwhile political leaders while speaking of India's partition. He said, "Jinnah was a secular leader, he never wanted partition and he was compelled and alienated by the Congress party. Jinnah was not in favour of Pakistan, India got divided because of the communal leaders of the Congress regime, Sardar Patel, Pandit Nehru and even Mahatma Gandhi who accepted partition."
