During the Balkan Wars of 1912-13, concerned Muslims around India mobilized to dispatch three medical teams to treat wounded Ottoman soldiers. Among them, the one organized directed by Dr Ansari caught the limelight. The Mission was an effort to heal the Muslims' pride, not the least back in India. This is their story, reconstructing their thoughts, voice, and the era that shaped them.
