Partners in Freedom Jamia Millia Islamia

 
Mushirul Hasan (Author) Rakhshanda Jalil (Author)
Synopsis Today, Jamia Millia Islamia has 'grown up' to become a modern, bustling and vibrant University. But it is an institution with a past that sets it apart from other educational institutions in India. It has a character and an identity uniquely its own. More importantly, it has legacy and rich inheritance. Partners in Freedom: Jamia Millia Islamia, endeavours to unfurl the nationalist legacy of Jamia, locate its story in the larger context of India's anti-colonial struggle, and profiles the lives of dedicated men and women who were committed to the ideas of plural nationhood and composite culture. When words do not suffice, rara, never-seen-before photographs relay the narrative. These are eloquent in their testimony of Jamia's role in national life and the long and tortuous journey it has undertaken. Partners in Freedom: Jamia Millia Islamia, an extensively researched book, is a history of tolerance, camaraderie and enlightenment within the precincts of an educational institution. It illustrates how individuals lived for and worked towards the attainment of high ideals and principles.
