Overview

The story of the great Muslim peacemaker Badshah Khan, who joined Mahatma Gandhi in nonviolent resistance to British rule in India.

Khān Abdul Ghaffār Khān (Badshah Khan or Bacha Khan) came from a Pathan society that was steeped in a tradition of blood revenge, but Khan raised a nonviolent "army" of 100,000 men and joined Mohandas Gandhi in civil disobedience to British rule in India.

Easwaran's biography of Khan is a comprehensive account of the man who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 and who embodied the nonviolent tradition within Islam. Under Khan's leadership, the Pathans proved that it is often those who are capable of great violence who have the courage to stand unarmed against injustice. Khan's story of hard-won victory offers inspiration for nonviolent solutions to today's world struggles.

Easwaran, author of Gandhi The Man, is one of the twentieth century's great spiritual teachers and an authentic guide to timeless wisdom. His books on meditation, spiritual living, and the classics of world mysticism have been translated into twenty-six languages. His Bhagavada Gita, Upanishads and Dhammapada are the best-selling translations in the US, and over 1.5 million copies of his books are in print.

This book is for anyone seeking to understand more fully what Islam can mean in the world of today.
