Excellent witness based story of Bannu that proves that Mahatma gandhi visit to Bannu on 24-25th October 1938 did leave lasting impression on Khudai khidmatgars volunteers to love their neighbors . Bacha khan taught non violence and Jinnah sent Iskandar Mirza with 4 crores rupees did not affect Bannu although many other places in Frontier - now Khyber Pakhtunwa saw violence at the hands of hired goons in feb- March 1947 time frame .Jinnah wanted seperate country and violence was his tactics to achieve it .
My research shows that Bannu was peaceful during partition while west Punjab and other big cities in NWFP and Sindh saw violence . Lahore was worst as it’s paid goons started their looting and fires bombings in June 1947 under guidance of a magistrate and police ..

An Excellent Source of Bannu During Partition.It remained Peaceful because of Mahatma Gandhi visit to Bannu on Oct.24,25,1938 with Badshah Khan where he met Khudai Khidmatgars Volunteers like Malak Raham Zad Khan and gave his message in 2 speeches To Hindus and Sikhs to Love Your neigbors-including Tribal People and You will receive Love Back.
Fateh Chand (born Bannu 15 th May,1914) statement of events in Bannu Maidan shows that Khudai Khidmatgars were not WAVERING in their Oath -to stick with NON VIOLENCE.
Laxmi Chand Jain book is a must read for all.
I give it 5 Stars.
