In 1948 Lt. Col. Mohammed Yousuf was promoted to the rank of Brigadier and given command in Bannu. In April 1948 the Quaid, on his tour of the (then) NWFP, visited the D.I.K. Guides Cavalry, and on April 16 he spent a day in Bannu. He was accompanied by Miss Fatima Jinnah.
After lunch at a Battalion Mess, he came to Brigade House in the Fort in Bannu. After tea, Mr. Jinnah addressed a large gathering from the ramparts. Colonel Sahibzada Khurshid (later Governor NWFP) was also in attendance.
In the late afternoon the Quaid, with Miss Jinnah, flew to Peshawar to present colours to an Infantry Brigade, and to hold a large garden party at Government House.
Gandhi always used to speak about his inner voice. He seemed to create an impression that there is something spiritual within him, which, in time of necessity, gives him guidance and he obeys it and calls it his inner voice. As a matter of fact Gandhi often changed his opinion and suddenly took the opposite stand. Quaid-i-Azam called it a somersault.
Once having committed himself to a certain point of view, he took a dramatically opposite stance. On the next day, Gandhi maintained that his inner voice dictated him to take the opposite view. Quaid-i-Azam lost his temper and shouted: “To hell with this Inner Voice. Why can’t he be honest and admit that he had made a mistake.”
