The Frontier Gandhi, His Place in History
This book evaluates the role of Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, one of the Indian independent movement's most controversial leaders. Deeply influenced by Gandhi and his creed of nonviolence, Ghaffar Khan spent his youth in the struggle to wean the warlike Pathans away from violence. He vehemently opposed the partition of India, but once partition became a fact, he turned all his energies to championing the cause of the Pathans and Pakhtunistan, much to the dismay of the Pakistan government, which branded him a traitor. Disliked by the establishment, he remained a hero to his people, and came to be known as the Frontier Gandhi.
