He was Member Subjects Committee League Legislators Convention, Delhi held in April 1946. Speaking on the occasion he said, "The Muslim League was the greatest democratic institution, and it was man's worth and conviction that counted, not the manner of his dress, for instance, which was so important to Congress".

In the Muslim League Council Meeting held in July 1946 at Bombay he said that the Congress with its over whelming majority in the Constituent Assembly hoped to crush the Muslim League.

He died in 1963. He was an able statesman and a trusted lieutenant of the Quaid-e-Azam.



India never was one, was never a nation, never was a country governed by one single power even with the sword. It is a sub-continent of different nationalities and peoples. It was never governed, in history, by one single power. Even today, when constitutionally and legally British are ruling over India, one third India is not British. The administrative oneness is entirely the making of the British. The government, which has been in this sub-Continent for 150 or 160 years, is not a government with the sanction of the peoples.... It is the sanction of British bayonets and not the sanction of the peoples.
