This book ‘Indian Muslims Against British Rule’ includes the events of the Uprising of 1857 and the participation of the Muslims, particularly the theologians as their religious duty to uproot the British rule from the Indian subcontinent. This work is an attempt to prove the Muslim, a true patriot and the real hero of the first war of independence, and remind the readers, what actually happened during the inordinate episode in 1857 and thereafter. It’s the work of different historical dimension with independent analysis and research in the modern context. In this work, I have tried to do justice to the ideologically complex topic which was the need of the time and awaken my readers about the Muslim torch bearers which always taught the lesson of love to the country and its people irrespective of caste and creed. Apart from the general history of the Uprising, the role of the Wahabi and Faraizi Movements also has been discussed in the context of the circumstances after a deep research and analysis. The role of the personalities like Bahadur Shah Zafar, General Bakht Khan, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, Mirza Ghalib, and other related personalities have been very widely discussed. The print media or journalism of that time, particularly the Urdu Press which was the main source of inspiration to the common people has also been discussed in detail. I have much hope with this book that it would change the common mindset which has been developed about the Indian Muslim since the partition of India. Printed Pages: 242.
