This movement was a plan to mobilize the support of the governments of Afghanistan and Turkey in organizing a revolt within India to overthrow the British rule. Obaidullah Sindhi and Maulana Mahmood Hasan were two important leaders of this movement. In August 1916, some letters written on silk fell into British hands.

The full text of the president speech is hereunder:
It is ndeed a happy occasion for me to be present here for the release of a stamp dedicated on ‘Silk Letter Movement’. As we all know, 15th August, 1947 was the culmination of almost two hundred years of resistance, intense political activity, including fasts, marches, protests, agitations and various types of movements. As we look back on the epic saga of this struggle, we are struck by the long drawn out and valiant fight put up by people from almost all walks of life without any thought towards their personal comfort and security. It was a widespread movement of multifaceted dimensions. In this movement people of various persuasions, following different ideologies, presented a multipronged resistance to foreign rule. This unique struggle was marked by a variety of approaches adopted by the people to rid the nation of the foreign domination. People who participated in the struggle belonged to various schools of thought and varied outlooks. Despite differences in their approaches and the methods of resistance to the foreign rule, they were all united in their desire to secure liberation for their motherland from yoke of colonial rule.
The Silk Letter Movement was one such effort from a group of revolutionaries. This movement was a plan to mobilize the support of the governments of Afghanistan and Turkey in organizing a revolt within India to overthrow the British rule. Obaidullah Sindhi and Maulana Mahmood Hasan were two important leaders of this movement. In August 1916, some letters written on silk fell into British hands. It is believed that the Silk Letters confiscated by British Government contained details of the Provisional Government of Azad Hind and its plans and a comprehensive scheme of forming an army and getting the support of the Turkish Government.
The sacrifices of individuals and groups, such as those associated with the Silk Letter Movement, constitute a glorious chapter of India’s history of Freedom struggle and need to be acknowledged and appreciated. The stories of struggle need to be told and retold to a young generation born in a free India and enjoying the fruits of liberty.
I am happy that the Department of Posts has done its bit in this regard. Over the years, it has issued postage stamps to acknowledge the contribution of various groups and movements which in their own ways contributed to the overall effort to liberate India. The regular India Postage Stamps were introduced in October 1854 during the tenure of Governor General Lord Dalhousie. These were red lithographed stamps of one anna and blue lithographed stamps of half anna, bearing the portrait of Queen Victoria. This symbolism of British Monarchy came to an end with India gaining independence on 15th August, 1947. It was a proud moment when the greeting “Jai Hind” figured on the first three stamps issued by free India.
I am told that since then the Department has issued more than three thousand stamps, many of them on great personalities and events which had contributed to the freedom struggle.
I compliment Shri Kapil Sibal for his endeavour to dedicate stamp on the ‘Silk Letter Movement’, as it truly reflects the multi-cultural and multi-faceted dimension of the freedom struggle. I join you all in paying tribute the efforts and contributions of this great movement. Jai Hind!
Minister of communication, Mr. Kapil SIblal addressing a gathering during launch of a commemorative stamp in memory of freedom fighter Shaikhul Hind, Sibal said, "If we talk about history, businessmen have finished India. They came here to do business but went after ruling us." He was apparently referring to East India Company which entered India for trade and subsequently ruled the country for over 200 years.
"Even today such businessmen are trying to come to India. We have to think over that. Even today there are forces which are trying to come to India as businessmen and to divide us," he said without elaborating. He made the comments while speaking about the life of freedom fighter Shaikhul Hind and on his role in the struggle for country's independence. Sibal's remarks came at a time when India has opened its various sectors, including multi-brand retail, for foreign investment.
Jamiat Ulama-i Hind general secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani, also the chairman of Shaikhul Hind Educational Charitable Trust, urged Sibal to include the Silk Letter Movement in history text books so that the younger generation learns about an important facet of India's freedom movement. He thanked Sibal for appreciative role in issuing stamps on Maulana Mahmood Hasan having thwarted communal tendencies which acted hurdles in recognition of role of Muslim leaders in freedom struggle. He demanded to issue tickets on Maulana Ubaidullah Sindhi and Maulana Kifayatullah and Maulana Asad Madani whose role in silk letter movement was also important.
Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Chief Maulana Usman Mansoorpuri spoke lengthily about the role of Obaidullah Sindhi and Maulana Mahmood Hasan, leaders of the movement, "This movement was a plan to mobilise the support of the governments of Afghanistan and Turkey in organizing a revolt within India to overthrow the British rule."
Maulana Mansoorpuri further said. “The stories of struggle need to be told and re-told to a young generation born in a free India and enjoying the fruits of liberty. He also demanded that the government enlist Maulana Mahmood Hasan in top rank of freedom stalwarts and his role be included in the text book.
Maulana Niaz Ahmad Farooqui advocate read out the message of Congress president Sonia Gandhi who expressed her happiness over the release of the postalal stamp.
Besides that, Governor of Uhtrakhand MR. Azeez Quraishi, K. Rahman Khan, Left. General Zameeruddin Shah VC Aligarh Muslim university, Najib Jung VC JMI, Maulana Abdul Khaliq Madrasi pro VC Darul Uloom Deoband, Mufti Salman Mansoorpuri,Pundit Anand Mohan Gulzar Dehevi, Asghar Ali Engineer, Dr Syed Farooq, Wajahat Habibullah, K.

Besides that thousands of Ulama notable among them are Maulana Abdul Khaliq Sanbhali, Maulana Mujeebullah Gaondwi, Maulana Hakeemuddin Qasmi, all across the country, foreing diplomats attended the function.
The postal stamp was released on the occasion of 60th Session of Shaikhul Hind’s Silk Letter Movement Centenary organized by Shaikhul Hind charitable trust and Universal association of Spiritual Awareness.

It is pleasing news that that history of Darul Uloom Deoband in Hindi language entitled ‘Darul Uloom Deoband ka Itihas’ has been published on the 151st foundation day of the Islamic University. The book consists of the history of 150 years of Darul Uloom Deoband.
Darul Uloom Deoband is not only a seminary of religious education but also is an international centre of Islamic culture, civilization and religious training.

Not only learned persons, research scholars rather common Muslims, Non-Muslims, representatives of the governments, media persons, delegations of Arab and non-Arab countries flock to see with their own eyes. The visitors and devotees naturally have some questions in their minds regarding the history of Darul Uloom Deoband.
Keeping this necessity in mind, it was felt to write comprehensive introduction of Darul Uloom Deoband in several languages specially Urdu, Arabic, English and Hindi in order to let the world and Muslims know the history and magnificent past of this Islamic University. For his very purpose, Maulana Muhammadullah Qasmi (Internet Dept.) compiled a concise but inclusive introduction of Darul Uloom Deoband which was translated by Professor Muhammad Sulaiman in Hindi language.
The book very precisely and concisely described the accounts of Darul Uloom Deoband expanding over 150 years.

May Allah help this seminary prosper until Day of Judgment!

A high-level delegation of Darul Uloom Deoband on Friday met Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh seeking his attention to the terror arrest of innocent Muslim youths. The delegation headed by Maulana Abul Qasim Nomani, vice chancellor of the seminary, demanded setting up of fast-track courts for speedy disposal of terror cases. Deoband has always condemned terrorism but also condemned arrest of innocents in the name of terrorism. Many such innocent people have been acquitted by court, “showing the reality that the related investigating agencies did not fulfill their responsibilities well, and in the events of terrorism, a special community has been targeted on pre-planned modes. Innocent people arrested like this way are still in many lock-ups and a number of them, despite having been acquitted from the courts, are yet to be released,” the delegation pointed out in the memorandum submitted to the PM.
They sought PM’s special attention to the terror arrests and demanded the government to:
Start of trials of those people who are in the prisons in accusation of terrorism in Fast Track courts and justice be given to them.
Stop the arrest of innocent people as well as curb the mindset of accusing a special community after every terror incident
Other demands made by the delegation were:
Reject the proposal to set up central madrasa board
Review the provision of Direct Tax Code and exemption of the Mosques, Madrasas, Maktabs and religious institutions from taxation as before.
Play and effective role in supporting the Palestinian cause
Exemption of madrasas from RTE
