Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung was born on February 3, 1905 at Hyderabad (Deccan) in an old Jagirdar family which had migrated to Deccan
in the first half of the 19th century and was honoured by the Asif Jahi rulers of Hyderabad with titles and jagir for helping the
royal family against Marhatha atrocities.
Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung was hardly seven on the death of his mother and eighteen on that of his father. He started his brilliant
career not by indulging in the luxurious life of Nawabs, but by taking keen interest in the social service of the down trodden.
He was privately tutored at home in Arabic exegesis and Hadith. He was a divinely gifted orator who could sway hundreds of
thousands of souls at will. His addresses at Milad-un-Nabi meetings helped him in his mission of Tabligh-e-Islam and nearly twenty thousand
Hindus embraced Islam at his call. He was given the title of 'Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung' by the Nizam of Hyderabad on account of his noble
character and his great qualities of leadership.
Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung travelled in the Middle East and Afghanistan to apprise himself of the condition of Muslims there. In 1927,
he established an Islamic proselytising group to count.
He was ardent Khaksar and worked with Allama Inayatullah Khan Mashriqi for a number of years. He had a deep regard for Quaid-e-Azam
Mohammad Ali Jinnah's untiring efforts for the Muslims under the banner of the Muslim League. Whenever the Quaid invited him to address
the Muslim League sessions, he always obeyed his leader.
Nawab Bahadur Yar Jung earned the honourable title of 'Quaid-e-Millat' by virtue of his services in the struggle for Pakistan and
for the cause of the Muslim League.
