About the Book
The present edition is a historical analysis of Muslim attitudes toward national politics and Islamic nationalism which were shaped by the perception of their own religious identity. This edition has been redesigned into nine chapters: conceptual development of Indian nationalism; Islamic influence on nationalism; Muslim identity and national integration; the Muslim league and separate representation; communal consciousness and two nation theory; nationalist streams in Muslim politics; revolutionary tendency in Muslim politics; Muslims’ participation in the mass movement; and end of the composite Indian nationalism. In my opinion, this edition will stimulate historians and scholars to execute further research on the role of Muslim in Indian nationalist movement and Islamic nationalism.
