The famous leader of Tehreek-e-Pakistan Raja Amir Ahmad Khan alias Raja Sahib Mahmoodabad passed away in 1973 on this very day.
Raja Sahib is one of the comrades of Quaid-e-Azam and one of the great leaders of Tehreek-e-Pakistan who not only used all his talents and abilities in the practical field for independence but also spent his wealth on relentless movement.
He was born on November 5, 1914. Raja Sahib was not an ordinary Indian but belonged to a ruling family in UP. His father, Maha Raja Sir Muhammad Ali Khan, was from the famous state of Mahmudabad in UP. In the same family, Raja Sahib opened his eyes and saw the abundance of money in the family environment, his education and training was very good. In addition to Urdu, he mastered English and Persian.
After the death of his father on March 23, 1931, Raja Amir Ahmad Khan became the Governor of Mahmoodabad and at the same time took active part in politics from the platform of the Muslim League for the solution of the national problems of the Muslims.
At that time, whenever the Muslim League needed financial support, Raja Sahib was the first to meet this need. He devoted all the revenue of his vast state to solving the problems of the Muslims.
When Pakistan was formed in 1947, Raja Sahib moved to Pakistan. He was offered ministry and diplomatic posts here several times but Raja Sahib always avoided it. He was such a sincere, pious and selfless person whose only purpose in life was movement and freedom.
Raja Sahib later moved to England where he was associated with the Islamic Research Center. He died in London and was buried in Mashhad.
