Mahatma Gandhi’s letter written in Urdu has been preserved in Shibli library, Azamgarh district of UP. Gandhi Ji had invited Maulana Sulaiman Nadwi to a conference held in Delhi on February 26 and 27 1945 by Tahreek-e-Hind Committee. He had written the letter in Urdu by his own hand. The letter is safe in Shibli library as a national heritage.
Senior research fellow of Shibli Academy Umair Siddique told that when Mahatma Gandhi had come to Shibli College, Azamgarh in 1929, Maghrib prayer was being offered. He met people after the prayer.
On the occasion, when a person asked for an autograph, he gave the autograph in Urdu. The people present there were quite impressed by this.
Then later he wrote the letter in Urdu inviting Maulana Sulaiman Nadvi for the conference.
Umair Siddiqui has claimed that the invitation letter written by Gandhi Ji is not found anywhere but in Shibli library.
