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

He was the grandson of Premjibhai Thakkar (Gondal),
who, to support his family, entered into the trading of fish
within the coastal town of Veraval. His business, however, clashed with the
strong moral ethics of the Lohanas 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 did not have inflated egos and 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 adapted 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 the independent
India (Bharat) and Jinnah, who is the father of Pakistan, are both sons of
Saurashtra *(old Kathivad ) Gujarat.
