IN CONTINUATION OF ASHURA E MUHARRAM AND IMAM UL HIND. The author was during the period he contributed the subject Article had been at pain wrenching his heart because he was the champion of Khilafat cause and Muslim unity while the Khilafat was victim of the world powers of the day viz. the Great Britain and France.
