About The Book
The Prisoners of Malta is a translation of 'Asira'n-e-Malta' written by Maulana Muhammad Mian in Urdu many years back. This translation in English has made the book accessible to non-urdu readers. It throws light on almost all the activities of the two great personalities who had sacrificed their all for the cause which was dear to them.
Shaikhul Hind Maulana Mahmoodul Hasan and Shaikhul Islam Maulana Syed Hussein Ahmad Madani.
Asira'n-e-Malta is the history of the perpetration of the British Raj in India against the will and wishes of its inhabitants and a Historical record of the contribution of the Ulema-e-Hind in the Indian struggle for freedom from Colonial Rule.
Shaikhul Hind and his STUDENT Maulana Hussain Ahmad Madni (later known as Shaikhul Islam) were arrested in Hijaz (Makkah) on 23 Safar, 1335 A.H. They were sent to Malta via Cairo by a ship on 29 Rabi-us-Thani 1335 A.H. corresponding to 21 February 1917 and clamped in the prison for 3 years and 4 months.
They were released and reached Bombay on June 8, 1920. This time of returning from Malta synchronized with the period of the beginning of the Khilafat Movement.
To some extent it is also a history of the Development of the Deobandi Madrassah's in India (prior to that it being influenced by the Wahabi Movement).
