BJP expells Jaswant Singh over praise of Jinnah

"Thirty years of my political life with the BJP and (being expelled) on this note … saddened me and on the ground for writing a book, that saddened me even more, immensely more," a visibly upset Singh, a founding member of the party, told reporters.

These guys are dangerous nutters... The article also mentioned that LK Advani also had to temporarily step down from BJP leadership for calling Jinnah "secular" in the past.

Jinnah was long opposed to a split India and only surrendered to the Pakistan option after decades of Muslims not getting a fair voice in the Congress/independence movement, which was frankly a Hindu nationalist movement more than an all-inclusive independence movement.
