Call it National Integration Day: Owaisi on Centres decision to celebrate Hyderabad Liberation Day

Recalling
Hyderabad’s
revolutionary
fighters
Turrebaz
Khan
and
Maulvi
Alauddin’s
sacrifices
towards
British
rulers,
Owaisi
stated
the
frequent
Hindus
and
Muslims
of
erstwhile
Hyderabad
state
have been
advocates
of
united
India
below
a
democratic
secular
and
republican
authorities.

“It
should
be
famous
that
the
accession
and
merger
of
varied
princely
states
have been
not
solely
about
liberating
the
territories
from
autocratic
rulers.
Extra
importantly,
the
nationalist
motion
rightly
noticed
the
folks
of
these
territories
as
an
integral
half
of
impartial
India.
Subsequently,
the
phrase
‘National
Integration
Day’ could
be
extra
apposite,
fairly
than
mere
liberation,”
the
Hyderabad
MP
stated
in
the
letter.

The
struggles
of
the
folks
of
the
erstwhile
Hyderabad
state
towards
colonialism,
feudalism
and
autocracy
are
a
image
of
nationwide
integration
fairly
than
merely
a
case
of
“liberation” of
a
piece
of
land,
he
added.

As
half
of
Azadi
Ka
Amrit
Mahotsav,
the
Centre
stated
it
will
be
commemorating
‘Hyderabad
Liberation
Day’
on
September
17
with
year-long
celebrations.
Union
Minister
for
Tradition
G
Kishan
Reddy
wrote
to
the
chief
ministers
of
Telangana,
Maharashtra
and
Karnataka
inviting
them
for
the
September
17
celebrations.

The
programme
will
showcase
the
lives
and
sacrifices
of
folks
who
fought
towards
the
atrocities
of
the
Nizam
and
the
Razakars,
Reddy
stated.
The
celebrations
will
be
a
becoming
tribute
to
Sardar
Vallabhbhai
Patel
and
all
others
who
contributed
throughout
the
liberation
wrestle,
he
additional
stated.

In
a
separate
letter
to
Telangana
Chief
Minister
Okay
Chandrashekar
Rao,
the
Hyderabad
MP
stated
the
state
authorities
wants
to
mark
September
17
as
‘National
Integration
Day’.
“This
day
should
be
a
celebration
of
the
struggles
of
folks
of
erstwhile
Hyderabad
towards
each
British
colonialism
as
effectively
as
the
feudal
autocratic
rule
of
Nizams,” he
stated.

In accordance
to
him
such
celebrations
should
be
a
recognition
that
the
folks
of
these
lands
had
lengthy
struggled
towards
(oblique)
British
rule.
