The stereotype of Muslim Indians is that of a relatively quiescent minority that has made its peace with its larger national non-Muslim context of contemporary India. Muslim Indians see something larger. They are heirs to a millenium long civilization, one of the greatest in modern history and an adornment to the history of Islam, replete with the highest philosophical, architectural, artistic and literary accomplishments. Muslim Indians: Struggle for Inclusion analyzes the findings of a two-year study throughout India that was intended to better understand and describe the priorities, thinking and concerns of Muslim Indians, an ill-understood and under-studied population.
