"India’s struggle against British imperialism for her freedom is unparalleled and worth emulating the world history. It is unique because people belonging to different religions fought unitedly not only to free themselves from the yoke of British imperialism but also to achieve the noble sentiments of equality, fraternity and patriotism.
Although Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and others had unitedly blown the bugle of freedom from the bonds of British imperialism as early as 1857, but the beginning of the 20 century gave an impetus to this struggle. Many Muslim freedom fighters, in particular, made remarkable contribution for the freedom of the country during this period. These actions of those Muslim patriots are not only a cause of national pride but are also a great source of inspiration for national integration and unity even today as they were in those days.
Keeping in view to give an authentic and secular understanding of Indian freedom movement, the present work in three volumes is designed and brought out. In the aftermath of independence, it has become necessary to assess the contribution of Muslim zealots in the freedom of India. No doubt, the partition was a sad event.
The present work is designed to highlight the contribution of the prominent Muslim freedom fighters in India and abroad. It is hoped that it will certainly add something more to what is available on the vast subject of Indian freedom struggle and shall bring before the people many facts which have hitherto remained unknown and will prove to be a boon to the research scholars of history and political science."
