Summary

This book was written by a Hindu, the grandson of Mohandas K. Gandhi. His intent, in writing on eight Muslims and their influence on India in the twentieth century, is to reduce the gulf between Hindu and Muslims. Focusing on figures viewed as heroes by sub-continent Muslims, he shows that they can be admired by Hindus as well--that they need not be frozen in Hindu minds as foes.

Here is a fascinating account of twentieth-century India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh told through biographical sketches of eight men: Sayyid Ahmed Khan (1817-1898), Fazlul Huq (1873-1962), Muhammad Ali Jinnah (1876-1948), Muhammad Iqbal (1876-1938), Muhammad Ali (1878-1931), Abul Kalam Azad (1888-1958), Liaqat Ali Khan (1895-1951), and Zakir Husain (1897-1969).

Rajmohan Gandhi is the Resident Editor of Indian Express. From 1964 to 1981 he was Chief Editor of Himmat. He is the author of The Rajaji Story, a two-volume biography of Chakravarti Rajagopalachari, the first Governor-General of free India. In addition to being the grandson of the Mahatma, he is also Sri Gopalachari's grandson.
