 Bacha Khan My Life and Struggle ,The Autobiography of Abdul Ghaffar Khan

 “As a student activist, what struck me the most about working with Bacha Khan was the strength of his compassion and his disarming humility. He would insist on walking long distances even in old age to reach the marginalised to help them or to at least express solidarity with them. The publication of English translation of his Pakhto autobiography is coming out at a time when younger generations are rediscovering Bacha Khan’s life and struggle.”

 Afrasiab Khattak, Former Provincial President of Awami National Party, former senator, writer and analyst of regional affairs

  “This compelling story is more relevant now than ever. Bacha Khan’s tireless struggle against oppression and division was non-violent and uncompromising, principled and creative. Readers will be enthralled and inspired.”

 Mukulika Banerjee, Author of The Pathan Unarmed, 2001

 

 “The life story of a man of peace and non-violence, born amidst mayhem and conflict across the Sub-continent, still carries a powerful message in the turbulent times we live in. The autobiography of Bacha Khan in English, for the first time in a lucid translation from the original Pakhto by Imtiaz Ahmad Sahizada, is a landmark publication. The history of modern South Asia has been incomplete without a better understanding of how and why the fierce Pashtun tribes embraced the Gandhian ideology of non-violent defiance. My Life and Struggle introduces a new and younger generation to the tribulations of the Pashtuns.”

 

Ahmed Rashid, Author of Pakistan on the Brink: The Future of America, Pakistan and Afghanistan, 2012

    Bacha Khan is our leader.

    Bacha Khan is our leader. Anyone who loves Bacha Khan must read this book. It is the best book, especially the Sub continent and National politics , hatred against Pakhtuns, partition of India and many things that we want to know are answered in this book.
    If Bacha Khan's words were followed. Today, Pakistan would be a developed country in the world. But he was entangled in problems and difficulties. Salim Khan, University of Peshawar, Peshawar
