IN MEMORY OF HASSAN YAR JANG, LOVER OF ALLAMA IQBAL AND QUAID E AZAM – AND LOVER OF ARTIST M.A. RAHMAN CHUGHTAI TILL THE VERY LAST (BOOK 1978)
Nawab hassań yar jung is my grand father.I’m Muneeb uddin khan son of Aahmad uddin khan.
We found out a book published in Karachi in 1978, thirty years after the exhibition in Hyderabad in 1948. Hassan Yar Jang gave all his documents to a friend Abdur Rauf Arooj, and he compiled the book of memories. A chapter is devoted o M.A. Rahman Chughtai too. We have already written about Hyderabad in a previous blog. Suffice to say that not only are there physical links between the two states, but more than ever Ideological links. East Pakistan was crushed under a conspiracy and today everything is openly said how through planned conspiracy the malignancy was done. Similarly Hyderabad’s link with Pakistan was forcibly snatched and in such places, it is evident how they remember the golden rules of yesterday, as compared to the hotch potch rulings of today.
Illiterate and uncivilized leadership anywhere cannot do much for anyone, public or the general run of the country. The start of Nawab Hassan Yar Jang comes from the PAIGAH family, a family only second to the family of Nizam of Hyderabad himself. A lot of Hyderabadi brethren migrated to Pakistan, and we encountered many families, mostly in Karachi. Others migrated abroad, no longer content to be in their country. Even today many Hyderabadis visits us. Our advice be strong and preserve your culture well. Do not forget your past. Perhaps a time will come for Hyderabad to be Hyderabad again!
