The unsung Heroes of the movement for independence


During the early decades of the 20th century, the world started reshaping itself out of disorder. In the Indian subcontinent, this century opened with a new era of revolutionary liberation movements with secular, Marxists, socialist, Leninist and Pan-Islamist ideologies. The British imperialism and atrocities compelled many Indian radicals and freedom fighters to leave their motherland in search of independence. The only option to them was naturally tribal areas, Afghanistan, Central Asia and revolutionary Russia for training, help and succor for national uprising against the British Raj. These unsung heroes were either ignored or excluded from the pages of history in our country. This article is solely focused on the Pashtun revolutionaries to rediscover their lost heroism for researchers and academicians
