This one is a great read, second in the series after Alipur ka Ali. Mufti sahib has a certain magical pull and certainly tell a story. I think the strongest effect after reading this book is the quest for truth. Mufti should certainly be given a great amount of credit for cataloging his life story as he saw it, as it gives certain very important details of a lost era. One small incident with Allama Mashriqis Khaksars in Lahore was very illuminating indeed as his movement has been completely white washed from the Pakistani history very similar to the Badshah Khans Khudai Khidmatgars. Both these movements were heavily influenced by Ghandis pacifist ideology in the India of the time.
