Roots of Jinnah – A AMAZING HISTORICAL FACT, PROBABLY KNOWN TO VERY FEW.

Roots of Jinnah

Here are some interesting facts on the Lohana roots of Mohammad Ali Jinnah the founding father of Pakistan:

Governor-General of Pakistan
Mohammad Ali Jinnah's Grandfather was a Gujarati (Indian).

He was the grandson of a Gujarati Premji bhai Thakkar (Gondal – Gujarat – India), who, to support his family, entered into the trading of fish within the coastal town of Veraval (Gujarat – India).

His business, however, clashed with the (vegetarian) strong moral ethics of the Lohanas (A caste in Kathiyavadi – Gujarati) and as a result he was ostracised from the community.

He made enough money in this trade and attempted to rejoin the community. He also discontinued the fish business. The Lohana leaders, in their wisdom, did not accept his request. (think about the course of history, if they had not had inflated egos and had welcomed him back!)

Premjibhai’ s son Punjalal Thakkar (Jinnah’s father) was enraged at his father’s humiliation and reacted like any other Lohana – with equal and opposite force. He adopted the Muslim religion and changed the names of all his four sons.

However, he continued to use his Gujarati nickname:
Zino (pronounced Jinno in old fashioned Gujarati) which means ‘Skinny.’
Jinno`s son – Mohammad Ali – changed his family name to Jinnah – the nickname of his converted father.

So, here is the fact. Gandhiji who effectively gave birth to independent India (Bharat) and Jinnah, who is the father of Pakistan , are both sons of Saurashtra,(old Katahivad) Gujarat!

  1. Can you please tell me the name of Jinnah when he Converted to Islam. When his father converted Jinnah already had three younger siblings. May of ten years of age, he must have some name, at home, at school, in family…..a nick name.
    What was that name ?.

  2. Jinnah’s grand father and his family originally belonged to Moti Paneli near my hom town Upleta . It’s fact that jinna’s family was from lohana vaishnava

  3. I’m of Gujarat in fact Mohd Ali Zinha’s parental village is Moti Paneli near Gandhiji’s porbandar . His grand father Valji punja thakkar was Lohana Hindu and his family believed in Vaishnav a sect of Hindu . Valji punja has sons Zinabhai and virjibhai . due to his new trade of dry fish his sect has boycotted him hence he was converted in Islam as khoja at agakhani mosk at Rajkot with guidance of his a relative cousin of Salaya of Jamnagar . zinha is not his surname but his father’s name ! In Gujarati family name is pronounced as shortly I.e. Valji punja , Zina valji and such a way Mohammed Ali Zinha . Mohammed Ali Zinha’ s name in his mark sheet of matrik is M.Z. Thakkr

  7. Jinnah story is not documented at all.
    Opinion about Gandhiji’s non-violence is obviously correct. Hindu Varna system turns Banias or the so-called Vaisyas into lamb like beings who get trained into becoming meat for the consumption of the armed protectors of Brahmanas, namely, Kshatriyas.
    The system allows Brahmanas to strategically hold arms as trainers and coaches and permits them to be non-vegetarians through the religious facility of yajnas that are classified into aja-medha , go-medha, asva-medha , and nri-medha ones/ The meat of the beings killed in connection with yajnas, be offered as Ahuti (0fferings into fire) and prasad, which is distributed among the participants for the purpose of eating, which cannot be thrown away.
    In this system, Vaisya is expected to be visibly vegetarian and non-violent. His non-violent duty and habit have to be supervised by Brahmana priests. Thus, Vaisya is not expected to be violent, and Gaandhji’s behavior was on the lines expected and determined by Varna philosophy.
    Gujrat connection of Jinnah and Gandhiji is accidental and no Gujrati ought to feel unduly proud on that account.

  8. Gandhi is great and knew Indian weakness thats why he opted for non-voilence.If he opted for war,his own people would have back stabbed him. History of thousands of maharajas who were fighting each other lead to mughal and british rule thats the truth. Godse was a misguided emotional reckage. Its very clear in this article.His talk about Hindhu unity is an eye wash.Even today its very clear. Where the money collected for Ram Temple is gone. There were no muslims or Cristians in India before. Why so many people got converted from a very easy way of life. Its atrocity and back stabing of our own Hindhus lead to all this.With one babri we have to spend lakhs of crores for the security related issues. The greed of coming to power has done this.Even today its thousand of casts,regions streets….for some reason or the other Indians dislike each other.Now Telangana pls look at it how they are fighting among themselves. Hope they are not China agents…China wants to see us twenty to thirty small states thats not united India!
