This is an excerpt from the lectures of India’s first Minister of Education and well-known freedom fighter, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. This is part of a series of lectures that he delivered during the Khilafat movement (1919-1922) in India during the British Raj. This movement was one of the key developments in India’s struggle for freedom which brought Hindus and Muslims together on one political platform under the leadership of giants like Gandhi, Azad and the Ali Brothers.
The excerpts have been sourced from a book, Khutbat-e Khilafat, compiled by Dr Mahmood Ihali, and published by UP Urdu Akademi, Lucknow (1988). Produced and Narrated by Zafar Anjum (zafaranjum.online). In this episode, Maulana Azad talks about the need for Hindu Muslim unity and how is ordained by Islam to boycott the British who were pitching Muslims against Muslims in their evil plan to destroy the Caliphate (Ottoman Empire).
