If the focus is placed on the British themselves, and on the modes of social and imperial communication between Britain and Bengal as well as within British Bengal itself, then a different culture of communication becomes evident. 23 Ironically, in order to open the conversation with the British about their failures to properly manage manuscripts and speech in Bengal, Ghulam Husain’s text needed to be part of this form of political communication too. He certainly demonstrated a knowledge (and some appreciation) of European political philosophy and political institutions, and a clear awareness of the power of writing to effect political change in the British empire.
The failings of the British were to be rectified by more open-ended forms of conversation and dialogue in which manuscripts also had a part to play. 20 It was only ‘conversation’ that would allow the British ‘to learn what aches these poor natives, and what might given them relief’. Without such social intercourse, and with the problems in understanding each other’s languages, ‘a Company of Hindians having business with their English rulers, looks very much like a number of pictures set up against the wall’.
28 Mustafa operated where the different modes of political communication at work in British Bengal overlapped and became entwined. Although it is difficult to be definitive about his motives for putting this particular manuscript into print, since he himself offered several reasons, there was certainly a desire to critique and change the forms of British rule that chimed with the intentions of Ghulam Husain’s work. In particular, Mustafa objected to what he saw as the injustices of a legal system that tried to combine British sovereignty with forms of Muslim and Hindu law.
