Jamshedpur : Thanks to the efforts of Jharkhand Minority Commissionís chairman Shahid Akhtar the Government is going to set up Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, one of the stalwarts of the Indian freedom struggle, museum in Jharkhand.
Maulana Azad stayed in Ranchi around 1919. In the same year he established the Madrassa Islamia which was later extended to the Maulana Azad College.
He was a patron of education and knew freedom would be achieved only if Indians were educated. There was no electricity those days.
Azad brought this lantern so that classes at the Madrassa were not affected.
The lantern is considered a proof of the struggle for freedom. It is also a reminder of the days Maulana spent in Ranchi.
