CATALOGUE NOTES
This complete version comprises 30 unpublished pages of Maulana Azad's “India Wins Freedom” and was published in 1988 as per his wishes 30 years after his death. Since Azad deeply respected Jawaharlal Nehru and Vallabhai Patel, he decided against publishing the complete version during their lifetime to not offend them- hence choosing the publish date at a time when none of them, including Azad would be alive. The book exposed the giants of the freedom struggle, deeming Patel responsible for Partition and showing Nehru in an unfavourable light.
