Chach Nama – Wikipedia
Its story has been a part of state-sanctioned history textbooks of Pakistanbut the text in reality is original and “not a work of translation”. It contains an introductory chapter about the history of Sindh just before its conquest by the Arabs.
The body of the work narrates the Arab inclursions into Sindh of the 7th-8th centuries CE. As one of the only written sources about the Arab conquest of Sindh, and therefore the origins of Islam in Indiathe Chach Nama is a key historical text that has been co-opted by different interest groups for several centuries, and it has significant implications for modern imaginings about the place of Islam in South Asia.
Accordingly, its implications are much disputed.
It was a source of colonial understanding of the origins of Islam in the Indian subcontinent through the Sindh region. On the other hand, the book also comprises a cgachnama amount of material which probably reflects a local Indian historical tradition.
The Chach Nama survived in the following key manuscripts: Asif adds that Qasim’s campaign in Chach Nama is a deliberate shadowing of campaigns Chach undertook in “four corners of Sindh”.
The Chach Nama drew upon Baladhuri’s work, and others, as a template for the political history, but created a different and imaginative version of events. According to Asif, “there is little reason for us to consider the facticity” of verses in the Baladhuri’s version either, an account written to glorify chxchnama martial conquest of courtly Abbasid times and composed over years after Qasim’s death.
The Chach Chacgnama is a romantic work influenced by the 13th-century history, not a historical text of the 8th-century, states Asif. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
