Video: Interview with Jaswant Singh

Hamish Macdonald speaks to the politician whose book has sparked outrage in India.

    For more than 30 years, Jaswant Singh has been a loyal member of India's opposition Bharatiya Janata party. 

    But after he wrote a book presenting a sympathetic portrayal of Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founding father of Pakistan, Singh was expelled.

    In an interview with Al Jazeera's Hamish Macdonald, he outlines his view on the way Pakistan should be governed today and unleashes a fierce tirade at the party he has served for more than three decades.
