By the time India got its Independence, the country was divided into two, India & Pakistan, prominently on the religions, where Pakistan was considered to be the Nation of the Muslims, separately.
But this division was not there when the fight for Independence started. Country prominently comprised of two communities, Hindus and Muslims, who joined and took part in the movements and stood shoulder to shoulder against the British. During the First War of Independence, both Hindus and Muslims joined the movement and gave themselves with equal enthusiasm.
Even when there were Muslim separatists, there were some outstanding Muslim freedom fighters who stood for unity of Hindus and Muslims, and continued to fight and even led their life for the Nation, India.
Not just men, there were Muslim women too who came head and lead the movements.
Here are some of them, the country need to recall and pay them tribute.
