About The Author
(Pseudo Name - Abu Daniyal)
Fears and hopes concerning an uncertain emerging World Order.
The author migrated to Pakistan on bifurcation of India in 1947. The author briefly worked in the first Prime Minister’s secretariat, while continuing his honours degree studies. Thereafter, he worked as a senior officer in three different commercial Banks. The inequities and ill-practices observed by him in the Banking industry made him to resign, while giving serious thought to evolving an interest free economy. The author believes that three great political movements reaching their peak at different times made great impact on his life, leading him to think about the inadequacies of the then prevailing short-comings of the various governing systems. The first of the Movements was Tehrik-e-Kilafat, which Indian Muslims launched for the restoration of Ottoman Empire and its legitimate ruler, the 'Khalifa' of all the Muslims world over. The second political Movement which left deep impression on all colonized Indians, as well as on Britain herself, related to Quit India demand of 1942, while WWII was at its height. The third great Movement was of course that which resulted in securing Pakistan where Muslims of India thought that they will be free from all constraints to observe and practice Islam according to its real spirit. After the great partition of 1947 and the violent break-up of Pakistan to create Bangladesh in 1971, by employing cleverly contrived self-serving designs of the interested powers to dismember the country, finally brought to end an eventful era.
The above background provided the author with enough material to write about a series of articles, which were duly published in national press during the last four decades. These articles, mostly written in Urdu, without regard to any central theme, have been published in ten parts, each bearing a different title. Together, all articles were intended to be published in chronological order in one volume, which still remains the objective.
