The Sudeten issue does raise an interesting question regarding the legitimacy of Jinnah and the Muslim League making a case for Pakistan. Though the author is a Pakistani and his views will naturally be sensitive to Pakistani concerns, and yet if he has quoted Dhulipala correctly, he does throw a new light on the views that Ambedkar held regarding the creation of Pakistan and justifying it so. If what Dhulipala writes is correct, it does indicate that Ambedkar, though much celebrated in post Independent India, was not really in sync with the sentiments of mainstream India then. However, some would justify Ambedkar's being out of step as seen given the angst of his and his ilk, it becomes understandable for him to not side the sentiment of the Indian majority. If only Ambedkar was fortunate to live in these times, he would realise that the arguments which he saw as 'clearly demonstrated that the Muslims were a nation and he, therefore, unambiguously supported the Pakistan demand' was fallacious since Pakistan has gone and is going the Czechoslovakian way and this time Czechoslovakia got divided owing to its inner contradictions as it happened and is happening in Pakistan. He is fortunate that he did not leave to see his arguments lying shattered as incorrect.
