When Huseyn Shaheed Suhrawardy died in Beirut in December 1963, the general feeling in both East and West Pakistan was that a staunch defender of democracy had passed on, that the country was so much the poorer by his departure.

Suhrawardy also convinced him that a united India was impossible and cooperation of the Muslim League was essential if India was to be saved from civil war.

Doubtless, this was a befitting tribute to H.S. Suhrawardy, the ardent defender of the vulnerable Bengali Muslims and a dauntless champion of a parliamentary democracy in Pakistan.
Since H.S. Suhrawardy had a long political career that was filled with spectacular events and landmark circumstances, spanning over a period of at least 43 years, it is problematic to provide an exhaustive analysis of all phases of his long political life within the scope of a single article.

Suhrawardyís concept of Pakistan was that of a liberal democracy with near-autonomous states (with a weak centre) getting closer together over a period of time, not by fiat but by the needs of interdependence.
Of all the rulers that I had the privilege of being acquainted with, I think, Suhrawardyís precepts were closest to Jinnahís Pakistan - Pakistan as a homeland for the Muslims of the subcontinent with the ethos of a Muslim state, non-sectarian, modern and democratic.
Suhrawardy was incarcerated by Ayub and later to die in exile.

 Gandhi's Passion
Though Suhrawardy's dream of becoming the king of Bengal was thus aborted, he lived to emerge less than a decade later (but only briefly to remain) as prime minister of Pakistan.
Suhrawardy agreed, and they moved into the abandoned Hydari House, a once-splendid residence whose terrified Muslim owners had fled, leaving it to be robbed and ruined by looters and hoodlums.
The interlude with Suhrawardy, however, was his last demonstration of the miraculous force of love and the value of trust and faith in one's fellow man as well as in truth.
