I come across some fascinating material during my work on information access, machine learning, analytics and search technologies. This blog is my medium for sharing these scenarios with those who are likely to be interested. If you come across a scenario that you find interesting, and would like me to comment on it, please send me an email at shahzad followed by whyztech.com

    Some 7,000 Indian soldiers died in the Italian campaign, and at least 1,413 of these were Muslims. Three of these Muslim casualties were only 15 years old: Amir Khan, Mian Khan and Gulab Khan. Age restrictions applied to British volunteers but not Indian volunteers.
    The graves of these soldiers can be found in the Sangro River Cemetery and Florence Cemetery in Italy.

    I got this information from http://www.masud.co.uk/ISLAM/bmh/BMH-Britains-Pakistani-communities-and-their-contribution.htm originally. It appears to have been taken down.

    However, this was based on very credible research carried out in Birmingham Univeristy (UK). I’ll dig it up and post it.

    Yes, I’ve found it.

    The name of the researcher is Jahan Mahmood, and the research paper is available at http://www.britainsmuslimsoldiers.co.uk/images/bms.pdf
