Pakistan, Cross Road in the history of Freedom Struggle of British India

India from 1857 introduces history students in the three main themes of modern India, 1. the quest for self-determination, 2. the debates about social inequality, and 3. the recurrence of inter-religious conflict.
Thus students read important texts about the Indian struggle against the British rule, the caste system and communal violence, taking from such leading nationalist figures as Gandhi,Ambedkar, Motilal Nehru, Iqbal and
            others who lived and wrote mainly in the first half of the 20th century which completes the first part of the Freedom movement for united India.
