Can We Help 1947.

As the deadlock over the terms of the transfer of power dragged on because of Jinnah's intransigence, Gandhi offered his good offices to Mountbatten to try to persuade the Muslim League chief to adopt a more resilient attitude. He failed, and in a letter to Mountbatten on May 6, 1947, said: "Whatever may be said to the contrary, it would be a blunder of the first magnitude for the British to be a party in any way whatsoever to the division of India. If that has to come, let it come after the British withdrawal, as a result of understanding between the parties, or an armed conflict, which according to Qaid-e-Azam Jinnah is taboo."
