 About Book  About Author 

The Leaders of Pakistan Movement edited by Awan and Hayat is to the history of Pakistan what the Sapiens by Yuval Noah Hararie is to history of mankind and A Brief History of time by Stephen Hawkings is to history of cosmos-all the three tracing the evolutionary process of their subject from its genesis to the apex.

Tracing varying dynamics of the history of Freedom Movement or for that matter the different reflections of the history of Pakistan was not an easy task to be dispensed by any accustomed individual perfectly. To tackle with this encyclopedic venture, the NIHCR pronounced to assemble a galaxy of scholars to delve on the subject. In this pursuit an international conference on the subject matter was organized on December 30-31, 2007 in Islamabad. Forty-five papers were presented in the conference. After a thorough scrutiny only thirty four papers- twenty four in English and ten in Urdu—were selected to be furnished on the pattern of the NIHCR publication. Another marathon endeavor was invested on their refinement, editing, proofreading and improvement to craft them as publish worthy which was not less than almost rewriting of the whole manuscript. It took more than a decade to bring the first part of its present form as an anthology of source orientation on the subject. Completion of the task however requires a follow up of its second part in Urdu.
