From the Hindustan Times by the famous cartoonist Shankar (as found in "Tragedy of Jinnah", Kailash Chander, 1941) (click on the image to enlarge it)

What was the aim before Mr. Jinnah ? What did he want to achieve ? What for all this fretting and fuming ? Why did not the Muslim League have a policy, a programme and an ideal ? These were the questions asked in many sober quarters. * Shankar ' the great cartoonist of India, depicted Mr. Jinnah in a wrestling mood showing his fists to Congress, Mr. Savarkar and Lord Linlithgow. , A press representative was depicted asking him, " What are you fighting for, Qaid-i-Azam ? " And Mr. Jinnah was depicted replying " I shall find out when the fight is over !" This cartoon appeared in one of the most widely read papers in India namely The Hindustan Times, New Delhi, just before the Muslim League session at Lahore.
