Bahadur Shah Zafar not only played important role in the war of independence but also continued his war through pen until his death while in exile at Rangoon in Burma, he added.

The emperor was subjected to torture through plundering his fort, killing princess and leaving him unattended in the Rangoon which shows the cruelty of the British, he said.
