For too long, the history of Pakistan has meant the history of Muslim rulers in Delhi and Agra, of British rulers in Calcutta, Delhi, and Simla, and of educated Muslims in Aligarh and Lucknow. We must take note of the positive and negative contributions of all groups, Muslim and Non-Muslim, from both east and west, of the area that comprises present-day Pakistan. Pakistan by its very survival and growth has proved that it deserves a serious historical study centered upon its own land and peoples. This book is a beginning in this direction. It recounts the history of the Pakistan area from the perspective of present-day Pakistan.
