Muslim League Secularism

B.G. Kaushik, in "The House That Jinnah Built", tells us:
The Muslim League leaders positively disapproved of the statement when M. Atay, the leader of the Turkish press mission to India, in a press interview in Lahore on January 28, 1943, stated, "We are Turks first, Muslims afterwards.  Religion is an honourable institution but it is individual and personal and has no place in the politics of our country."
I would love to learn in what terms the Muslim League leaders expressed their disapproval.
