As usual Orya Sahib's sense of history is askew. I can't say much about Allama Muhammad Asad's dept. of Islamic Reconstruction, although I do know that shortly after our independence he became our plenipotentiary to the UN, while Prince Ali Khan (father of the present Aga Khan) became our first ambassador. I don't know when he had time to head the aforementioned dept. I do know that the claim he has made with regards to William Dalrymple about his book "The Last Moghul' is totally fallacious. I've read the book and Dalrymple says the exact opposite of what Orya Sahib claims. This "war of independence" or the "mutiny" was thrust upon Bahadur Shah Zafar and till the end he didn't want to go to war knowing his position fully well. It was the Hindus and not the Muslims who started this war.
