Book Review: India in the Balance by Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din

The Light (Pakistan), 16th August 1922 Issue (Vol. 1, No. 17, p. 3)

In this book, Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din, lawyer, philosopher, divine, and one of the foremost figures in the intellectual life of modern India, has discussed the present political condition of the country, and has also dealt with the Caliphate question.

The Khwaja did not so far associate himself with the current politics, and therefore this book is his first attempt in the sphere of politics; and yet it is very creditable.

It is written in good, fluent English, and the style is authorita­tive and convincing.

It consists of eleven chapters, each devoted to a separate subject of its own, yet having an underlying connection with the other. Every topic has been handled with ability and skill.

It may be had from:

  1. The Mosque, Woking, England; or
  2. Aziz Manzil, Lahore.
