Ulema's Role in India's Freedom Movements: With Focus on the Silk Letter Movement (Reshmi Rumal Tehrik)

Syed Ubaidur Rahman (Author)

The book looks into the sacrifices made by the Muslim ulema in different phases of freedom struggle including 1857 Mutiny, Faraizi Movement of Bengal, Tehrik e Jihad of Sayyid Ahmad Barelvi and Reshmi Rumal Tehrik of Deobandi ulema headed by Shaikhul Hind Mahmud Hasan and Ubaidullah Sindhi. Praise for the book Renowned scholar and author, Dr. Muqtedar Khan, who is Professor of Islam and Global Affairs at the University of Delaware, while writing about Syed’s book says, “This book is a game changer. It should be read by all those who take pride in, teach and write about Indian nationalism. By highlighting the independent role of Muslim scholars in the struggle against East India Company and the British Raj, before and after the mutiny in 1857, this book unveils the forgotten sacrifices and struggles of Muslims for India. Today the forces of exclusionary nationalism are seeking to erase Islam’s and Muslims’ share from the history and contemporary reality of India. This book can serve as a bulwark against that and advocate for a more inclusive understanding of India’s emergence from colonial subjugation. This story of India’s struggle for freedom from the British in the past is also an attempt to free India from exclusionary nationalism in the present”. Professor Syed Ali Nadeem Rezavi, Chairman CAS Department of History, AMU, says, “The book by Syed Ubaidur Rahman is a fresh approach on a very relevant topic. Today as India is grappling with attempts to rewrite the history of our past, there is a strong need to re-itirate the role of the Muslims and their theological classes in some of the actual happenings. The War of Independence and a number of “nationalistic” and anti-imperialistic movements like the Reshmi Rumal Movement is the focus of this nuanced study and the author very ably brings out the role of many individuals back into focus. Frankly a good work!”
