    I see the veteran Muslim League leader (United Provinces), Nawab Mohammad Ismail Khan acknowledging gestures of reverence from 1:33 to 1:36. A prominent leader, he truly was.

    Are there unemployed video clips in the archive that depict him? I have searched the current archive but to no avail. In case there are, kindly get back to me as I will, in all likelihood and sincerity, make purchases. Muslim League sessions are where he is likely to be found most.
