It was resolved that a demand be made to authorities to recognise Wajid Ali Shah as National Hero of the war of 1857.
A biography Parikhana written during the captured period of Nawab has stated a wrongful account of life and time of Nawab including his contribution to music and literary work such contradictory sketch developed through his biography and to actual life as sketched by historians has cast the doubt on Parikhana so authenticity of it should be done academically where hisorians of eminence be commissioned to document the life and time of Nawab again.
