The book challenges the many prejudices that generate bias and hatred against the Indian Muslims, particularly their contentious role in India freedom movement and the rise of the Indian Muslim League. In doing so, it argues that many of them stem from the deliberate and diabolical policies of the British to divide the country along religious lines.
Through extensive research and rare archival records, the book looks at the role and contribution of Indian Muslims and their revolt against the British Colonial power right from the establishment of British rule after the Battle of Buxar to the achievement of Independence.
