Nonviolent Soldier of Islam
Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, a Pathan (or Pushtun) from the borderland between Afghanistan and modern-day Pakistan, was a devout Muslim and a devoted follower of Mahatma Gandhi. He raised the first nonviolent army in history to free his people from British imperial rule, persuading 100,000 of his countrymen to lay down the guns they had made themselves and to fight nonviolently. This book tells the life story of this heroic and little-known Muslim leader, who remained true to Gandhi's principles of love in action throughout many years of imprisonment and until his death in 1988.
Nonviolent Soldier of Islam tells Khan's life-story through narrative, 58 photos, and Khan's own words.
