About this Item

Contents Prologue. 1. A century before the Jihad I. 2. A century before the Jihad II. 3. 1857 pre uprising conditions and causes. 4. 1857 the course of events. 5. Promoters leaders and beneficiaries of the uprising I (i.e. Jihadi core of the uprising). 6. Promoters leaders and beneficiaries of the uprising II (i.e. Jihadi core of the uprising). 7. Promoters leaders and beneficiaries of the uprising III (i.e. Jihadi core of the uprising). 8. Jihadi proclamations during the uprising. 9. Hindu Muslim struggle during the uprising. Epilogue. Appendices. Index. 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. 518 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73734
