Maulana Azad and partition –

Certified BuyerHowrah. Mar 01, Himanshu rated it it was amazing. First off, Maulana Azad as i and many others winss like to call him fondly indiia become an unsung hero of modern India over the years and it is, in truth, sad and deplorable that our gy texts on history hardly sheds light on this great personality whose contribution to the building of India was no less, if not more, than that of Gandhi’s, Nehru’s, Patel’s or anyone’s for that matter.

They also thought that he was perhaps the best man for getting advantageous terms in the communal settlement. Through the eyes of Abul Kalam Azad, the explanations of each and every incident that happened over a span of 10 years before is just brilliant. When I came out, Shrimati Rameshwari Nehru told me that for the last two nights Jawaharlal had been talking in his sleep.

At the outset of the war, Azad expressed willingness to fight with the Allies if India was herself free.

The provinces of Bengal and Punjab were to be partitioned on religious lines, and on 3 June the British announced a proposal to partition India on religious lines, with the princely states free to choose between either dominion.

In this period Azad also became active in his support for the Khilafat agitation to protect the position of the Sultan of Ottoman Turkeywho was considered the Caliph or Khalifa for Muslims worldwide.

Azad has also authored Sallies of the Mind and Khvud Navisht. Jul 20, Athar Ali rated it really liked it.

Maulana Azad worked for Vakila newspaper from Amritsar. It gave a abuk and added importance to Mr Jinnah which he later exploited to the full. Few more examples of criticism of Mr.

Less inclined to brand the League as obstructive, Azad nevertheless joined the Congress’s vehement rejection of Jinnah’s demand that the League be seen exclusively as the representative of Indian Muslims. In any case freeedom would have formed their own governments in the Muslim majority provinces and would have had high stake in the federation.
