Qaaid-e-Millat Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung
Bahadur Yar Jung (or Bahadur Yar Jang) (3 February 1905, Hyderabadmarker – 25 June 1944) was an Indianmarker Muslim nationalist who argued for the separation of Muslim states in India during the British Raj in the 1930s and 1940s. Particularly, he wanted his own home state, Hyderabad, to be separate from the rest of India as a Muslim state, and also founded an organisation called Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, for the propagation of Islam. A friend and aid to Muhammad Ali Jinnah, he was one of the most admired leader of Pakistan Movement. In 1926 Bahadur Yar Jung was elected president of the Society of Mehdivis. In 1927 he started an organisation called "Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen" he was the founder of this organisation. In 1930 he was elected secretary of the Union of Jagirdars which had been established in 1892 but was moribund. Bahadurabad, a neighbourhood of Karachimarker, Pakistanmarker, is named after Bahadur Yar Jung.


Matched by very few, his oratory skills served as a catalyst to the indepedence struggle. A sample is presented here:

On the December 26, 1943, he delivered an important speech in the All India Muslim League Conference. In the first half of his speech he laid stress on the struggle for Pakistanmarker. In the second half he talked about the creation of Pakistanmarker. At the end he said,

"Muslims! Decisions made under pressure do not last for long. To-day we are not in need of a tree that blooms like a flower or in need of fruit that tastes sweet to our mouths. Instead, we are in the need of fine manure that dissolves in the soil and strengthens the roots. That will unite with the water and soil to produce beautiful flowers. That will destroy itself but will leave its scent and taste in the flowers. We are at present not in need of beautiful scenery that looks good to the eyes, but what we need are foundation stones that will bury themselves in the soil to make the building standing on them strong."
