  • HINDU-MUSLIM QUESTION AND OUR FREEDOM STRUGGLE

    The book is a document written in 1946 regarding the genesis of the Muslim League’s demand for Pakistan. It was submitted to the Communist Party of India for discussion. Due to the hectic political activities, partition and its aftermath and change in the CPI leadership in 1948 etc. this discussion did not take place. In this book Ashraf traces the genesis of the Hindu-Muslim question and shows that at various phases the two communities had very closely cooperated in the freedom movement and how, again through stages they drifted away to reach a stage of no compromise and insistence on partition. Through profuse documentation Ashraf demonstrates the evolution of Congress-league relationship from serious cooperation to its total disruption.
