Product description

Review

While the book is a first-person account, it is a fairly easy read and gets really interesting when Maulana talks about his impressions of his close colleagues such as Gandhiji, Nehru, Patel, Rajendra Prasad etc. Some of the comments, released 30 years after his death as per his wishes, are definitely controversial. They also provide new insights into the personal relationships as well as on Maulana's perceptions on how things could have been if some serious mistakes had not been committed by Gandhi, Nehru and Patel. He is quite harsh on Sardar Patel, MA Jinnah, Liaqat Ali, Lord Mountbatten, Krishna Menon, Dr. Syed Mahmood, and to a lesser extent on Prime Ministers Churchill, Attlee and Sir Stanford Cripps. All in all, recommended for anyone with more than a passing interest in the modern history of India and especially the politics surrounding India's freedom struggle and partition. Maulana comes through as a nationalist and pragmatist in the book, and one wonders if the course of India's history (and Pakistan and Bangladesh's as well) would have been different if he had agreed to stay on as Congress President and become India's first Prime Minister --Vimal Pannala Mar 28, 2012

This covers matter relevant to the last decade of India's Independence movement from the outbreak of WW-2. It is very simple to read, and in places gives a honest assessment of healthy difference between the leaders of the freedom struggle. --Khalil Sawant Mar 14, 2012

As suggested before, I would also recommending this book to every Indian. There are lots of truth which is untold. like:- how mistakenly Muhammad Ali Jinnah became so called Qaidey Ajam or self proclaimed Muslim voice. What happen to Khilafat movement and Khudai Khidmatgar movement. Unfortunately, to get political benefit, British tried all their dirty tricks and still we Indian are divided. --MD KHALID AHMAD Feb 6, 2012
