IDENTITY & RELIGION
FOUNDATIONS OF AND ANTI-ISLAMISM IN INDIA
Exploring the reasons behind the difficult relationship between Hindus and Muslims, the author of this volume links the unease to the development of the Indian nationalist struggle. He analyzes the views of four nationalist leaders: Vivekananda, Gandhi, Nehru and Savarkar to conclude that independent India inherited the legacy of a skewed nationalist interpretation of the role of Muslims in India. Highlighting the role of many public and political institutions, he also suggests how their intervention could promote better understanding between these two groups.
