Publishers Note
When the manuscript of India Wins Freedom was handed over to us for publication by the late Professor Humayun Kabir in September 1958, seven months after Maulana Azad's sudden death, we were informed that a fuller version containing additional material of about thirty pages would be made available to us for publication on 22 February 1988, the thirtieth death anniversary of Maulana Azad. However, when the time came, the handing over of the complete text got delayed because of various issues raised by persons claiming an interest in the matter. These issues were heard by the Calcutta High Court, the Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court, before Justice B.N. Kirpal of the Delhi High Court directed on 29 September 1988 that a copy each of the text deposited in the National Library, Calcutta, and in the National Archives, New Delhi, be handed over to Orient Longman on 29 September 1988. The court further directed that the material should be reproduced without any alteration, after comparing the copies to ensure that they were identical. This has been done.
On examining the material, it became apparent that the additional matter was not just an extra thirty pages as generally believed but was to be foundscattered throughout the text. Also, apart from phrases, sentence sequences and series of passages left out of the published text, the original text had been modified at many places by Professor Kabir's editorial intervention (see his note in Appendix 1). The present edition now gives the full text as found in the copies released to us. Major additions to the earlier version are indicated by asterisks at the beginning and at the end. The "Prospectus of the First Volume' as published in the first edition has been retained. The appendixes included in that edition have also been reproduced.
October 1988.
