Rs. 1,200.00

The distinguished Indian lawyer and writer, A.G. Noorani, urges his readers in this incisively argued book to look again at some of the key events and personalities in the struggle against British colonial rule in India. He begins with 'the forgotten comradeship' between Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak. Whatever their other differences, both felt passionately about the cause of Indian freedom. Jinnah defended Tilak in his trial in 1916 on sedition charges, and ultimately secured his acquittal. The full text of the legal proceedings, including Jinnah's powerful speeches for the defence, are included as an appendix. After Tilak's death in 1920, Jinnah continued to work closely with political leaders of all persuasions and was regarded by the British as one of their most formidable opponents.
