Ruttie Jinnah was the only woman to capture the heart of Quaid -i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. The daughter of a Parsi business magnate, Ruttie Dinshaw Petit embraced Islam and married Jinnah when she was only 18 years old despite stiff opposition from her parents and community members. Ruttie revered his wisdom and logic; he was enamoured by her exceptional intellect. However, despite their unfaltering love and dedication to each other, the marriage suffered as Jinnah's political commitments resulted in extended separations while he toured India in his fight for independence from the British yoke. This volume reveals irrefutable facts about the relationship between Mohammad Ali Jinnah and his wife. Based on primary sources, authentic records, visits to the places where significant events in their lives took place and meetings with people who had interacted with the couple, this book provides a clear, substantiated account of the life of Ruttie Jinnah.
