Mnemon History Society: Screening of Dr. Uma Chakravarti's 'Ek Inquilab Aur Aaya'

Uma Chakravarthy's third film, “Ek Inquilab Aur Aaya: Lucknow 1920-1949” excavates memories to dwell on two women from Firanghi Mahal, a centre for rationalist Islamic learning in Lucknow. Sughra Fatema, a poetess, and her niece Khatija Ansari, a student activist, went to jail in 1949. Through their lives, we see a moment of possibility for Muslim women at a time of great change.
