Hyderabad - the largest and the best governed state in the subcontinent invaded from all sides against the wishes of its people. Wishes of the people were never ascertained. Here are the extracts from the famous Mir Laik Ali book on Hyderabad -Tragedy of Hyderabad. Mir Laik Ali was the Prime Minister who luckily left us a first hand honest account of what really happened then. It is in sharp contrast to the concocted and re-constructed history given to us by the Northern and Western India communal and racist elements including the government of India propaganda.
