Political Islam? Nationalist Islam? Good Muslim vs. Bad Muslim? ... This book answers these questions

How do we make sense of Muslims of India?

Do Muslims of India form a political community?

Does the imagined conflict between Islam and modernity affect the Muslims’ political behavior in this country?

Are Muslim religious institutions-mosques and madarsas-directly involved in politics? Do they instruct the community to vote strategically in all elections?

What are ‘Muslim issues’?

Is it only about triple talaq?

Are Muslims truly nationalists? Or, do they continue to remain just an ‘other’ in India?

While these questions intrigue us, we seldom debate to find pragmatic answers to these queries. Examining the everydayness of Muslims in contemporary India, in this book Hilal Ahmed offers an evocative story of politics and Islam in India.
