The Frontier Gandhi: Badshah Khan, A Torch for Peace | A Film by T.C. McLuhan
This dramatic feature length documentary tells the extraordinary story of Muslim peacemaker, Badshah Khan (aka Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan). Born into Pashtun warrior society, Khan managed to raise a non-violent army of more than 100,000 men, women, and youngsters of various religions as he fought alongside Mahatma Gandhi for India's independence. Shot in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, the U.S. and Canada, this eye-opening film includes remarkably candid interviews with world leaders; rare historical footage; interviews with 72 of Khan's nonviolent warriors, all beyond the age of 100 years; a haunting score by world music pioneer David Amram; and a Badshah Khan voice characterization by India's megastar, Om Puri.
