The history of Berad community is the history of pre-British era and how the Britishers mistreated them and called them criminals. (World preview – typd – IBN Lokmat). After completing the higher education, he was offered a job of Research Associate at Hyderabad, but in order to work for the welfare of his society he rejected the offer. Many times he was shocked by the behavior of his own people, once he had to declare public apology for an article written by him describing the real condition of his Berad community, as he wrote about the truth, but actually he had defended his community saying that Berad as angry people, he was saved from their anger when they saw him actually working for them.
The leaders were also jealous for his increasing popularity, he was aware that the leaders from his community as well as middle men were also responsible for the sufferings of his people. To expose the ill practices of the middle men he began to write in news papers and organized the conferences and meetings.
