Allama Mashriqi, one of the founding fathers of Pakistan, was one of the greatest scholars and leaders of the 20th century. This book is a timeline of events surrounding this giant among men and his Khaksar Movement (Khaksar Tehrik - KT). Mashriqi broke records at the Cambridge University and emerged as a world-renowned mathematician and scholar. It is believed that his academic records at the Cambridge are yet to be broken. He held the position of Under Secretary (Education) in British India. Before partition, the British offered him title of Knighthood and Ambassadorship; he declined them. His monumental work is "Tazkirah" (nominated for Nobel Prize), which presents a scientific view of the Holy Koran. Mashriqi founded the KT in 1930. The Khaksars created history and led to the freedom of the Indian-subcontinent. This book is the result of exhaustive study by Mr. Nasim Yousaf (grandson of Mashriqi) and is one of the most valuable documents in Indo-Pak history that has ever been produced on the KT. This work will go a long way in unveiling many hidden facts surrounding independence, as Pakistan and India's history remains incomplete and imperfect without discussing the KT's role toward freedom. This work goes far beyond merely listing dates of events; it includes correspondence, resolutions, press statements, govt. communiqués, photos, etc. This work allows the reader to get an undistorted and true understanding of Mashriqi and the Khaksars' unmatched resistance and suffering that mobilized the nation for liberty. This book is indeed an eye-opener and a great source of knowledge for scholarly studies, historians, professors, students, filmmakers, journalists, etc. interested in Indo-Pak history. The editor has used credible sources, and his knowledge provides great insight into Mashriqi's life and KT. Based on his information, Mr. Yousaf has provided comments wherever needed.
