This book consists of extracts from Dr. Ambedkar’s book: Pakistan or the Partition of India, 2nd edition., as reprinted in “The Selected Works of Dr. BR Ambedkar”.

Babasahebji was well aware of the importance of his book.  As he himself put it: “Every Indian must read a book on Pakistan, if not this, then some other, if he wants to help his country to steer a clear path. … the reader will find that the book contains an epitome of India’s political and social history during the last twenty years, which it is necessary for every Indian to know.

All headings and footnotes have been added, and the organisation of the work is due to the compiler. Everything else, including citations from other writers, comes from the pen of Dr. Ambedkar.
