The freedom won by the Indian subcontinent from centuries of British subjugation, immediately after the Second World War set into motion forces that have transformed the political map of the world beyond recognition. The dismemberment of British Empire is a major landmark in the march of history; comparable only to the decline and fall of the Roman Empire.
The freedom won from the British resulted into the birth of two sovereign nations-India and Pakistan. The division of the subcontinent is a living evidence of the two strands in the thinking of the preindependence day leadership. One strand included leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Maulana Abul Kalam Aza.
That considered Muslim not a minority, “Which looks at the future with suspicion and fear”….. “but a huge group in such a large number and so widely scattered”… “that even to think of assigning them attributes of a minority is a blatant deception to one’s vision.”
There was the other strand according to which Muslims had found themselves “standing at the crossroad of destiny without knowing in which direction safety lay and yet were determined to fight for their right of existence and freedom.”
The volumes in this series are an attempt by this group of historians to understand the factors and forces that proved catalyst in the march of history in the subcontinent.
