The 1857 Jihad

Sheshrao B. More. (Author) Bhalchandrarao C. Patwardhan (Translator)
Over a thousand books have been published on the uprising of 1857. However, this book is qualitatively different from all of them. The debate so far was whether the uprising was a sepoy mutiny or a war of independence. This book raises further questions: if it was a revolt, who masterminded it; if it was a war of independence, whose independence was contemplated? How could restoration of the Mughal dynasty be regarded as independence for Hindus? Who did the British hold responsible for the uprising? Would Muslims have participated if Nanasahib, Rani Laxmibai or some other Hindu had been emperor instead of Bahadur Shah? "This book comprehensively establishes with profusion of solid evidence that it was really a Jihad for the restoration of Muslim power. As even their proclamations clearly show, the leaders of the uprising themselves had lauded it as a Jihad against Kafirs. They had been striving for this goal a century prior to the event, as will be apparent from chapters 2 and 3. Through information provided about uprising at more than 190 places, it will be seen that, barring a few exceptions, the promoters, leaders and beneficiaries were all Muslims. Sikhs, Marathas and Rajputs assisted the British to quell the rebellion, thus preventing the restoration of the Mughal dynasty. It has been a long time since the British left. They are our enemy no more. Will you not study the true nature of the 1857 uprising for the future of India?
