During a press conference on Monday, Asaduddin Owaisi, the leader of the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), voiced his sentiments about the partition of India, referring to it as a “historical mistake” that should have been avoided.

The Hyderabad MP argued that even Islamic scholars from that era had opposed the concept of the two-nation theory, emphasizing that historically, India was a single entity, and the division was an unfortunate occurrence. He went on to express that he couldn’t provide a succinct answer to the question of responsibility for this historical mistake, suggesting instead that a debate would be a more fitting platform to delve into the complexities surrounding India’s partition.

Owaisi also recommended reading ‘India Wins Freedom,’ a book authored by Indian freedom fighter Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. In this book, readers can gain insights into Azad’s endeavors to dissuade Congress leaders from accepting the partition proposal.

“The partition of this country should not have happened. That was wrong. All the leaders who were there at that time, they were all responsible (for partition). If you read a book by Maulana Abul Kalam Azad’s book ‘India wins Freedom,’ Maulana Azad requested all the Congress leaders then that the country should not be divided,” Owaisi asserted, underlining the importance of revisiting the historical narrative surrounding India’s division.
