Maulana Azad’s full name was Abul Kalam Mohiyuddin Ahmed. He passed his childhood in Calcutta (Kolkata) along with his elder brother Yasin and three elder sisters Zainab, Fatima and Haneefa. Brilliant in study he had keen interest in literature. At the age of twelve, he brought out a handwritten magazine named ‘Narang-e-Alam’ which was highly appreciated by literary personalities. Patriotism was so much deeply rooted in him that he made him active member of the revolutionary organization run by Aurobindo Ghosh. As a result he became target of the British Government. To save his life his father Maulana Khairuddin sent him to Cairo, Egypt in the pretext of further study. There too he came in touch of local revolutionaries whose sole aim was to drive English rulers out of their country.

He fought valiantly devoting his whole life for the Hindu-Muslim unity. How? For answer visit the silver screen.
