Maulana Obaidullah Sindhi

Maulana Obaidullah Sindhi


Maulana Obaidullah Sindhi was born on March 1, 1872 as Buta Singh in a Sikh family of District Sialkot. His father Rana Singh died before his birth and he was brought up by his maternal uncle at Jampur (District Dera Ghazi Khan). Here he was deeply influenced by the writings of muslim scholars and embraced Islam at the age of 15. He left his home and settled in Sindh, where he became a disciple of a sufi, Hafiz Mohammad Siddiq Barchondvi.

In 1889. he joined the famous Dar-ul-Uloom of Deoband from where he graduated with honours. At Deoband Shaikh-ul-Hind Maulana Mahmudul Hasan and some other teachers influenced him. He started his career as a teacher.

In 1908, he came back to Deoband and was entrusted with the programme of Jamiat-ul-Ansar, the organization started by Shaikh-ul-Hind.

In 1913, he was asked to go and work in the Nizarat-ul-Moarif at Delhi. He taught the Holy Quran to English educated youth in the Fatehpuri Masjid.

In 1915, he went to Afghanistan with the object of promoting a Muslim attack on India which would synchronize with a Muslim uprising against the British Rule in Indo-Pakistan sub-continent. Maulana Obaidullah was actively involved in the historic 'Reshmi Roomal (Silk Letter) Movement'.

From Afghanistan he travelled to Turkey and Russia. All his attempts were directed towards forging international Muslim unity i.e., unity of the Muslim Ummah irrespective of the barriers of nationalities and linguistic differences.

He returned to India in 1939, where he established a religious school at Denpur (District Khanpur).

He died on August 21, 1944.

He wrote his autobiography in Urdu titled 'Zaati Diary'. His oilier works are 'Safarnama-i-Kabul', 'Shah Waliullah Aur Unki Siyasi Tahreek', 'Shah Waliullah Aur Unka Falsafa' and 'Khutbat-i-Maulana Obaidullah Sindhi'.



India never was one, was never a nation, never was a country governed by one single power even with the sword. It is a sub-continent of different nationalities and peoples. It was never governed, in history, by one single power. Even today, when constitutionally and legally British are ruling over India, one third India is not British. The administrative oneness is entirely the making of the British. The government, which has been in this sub-Continent for 150 or 160 years, is not a government with the sanction of the peoples.... It is the sanction of British bayonets and not the sanction of the peoples.
