Author Name: K. RAHMAN KHAN | Format: Hardcover | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details

Indian Muslims: The Way Forward reflects upon a range of issues concerning the Indian Muslims, such as: 

• Why are the Indian Muslims, as a whole, socially, educationally and economically backward? What can be done to address this? 

• How far are Muslim religious and political leaders responsible for the present conditions of the Indian Muslims? 

• How should the Indian Muslims relate to the present social and political context? 

• How can the Muslims of India earn the goodwill of people from the other communities in the country? What are some practical things that they can do to promote inter-community harmony?

This book speaks about the way forward for India’s Muslims in the present context. It appeals to them to contribute to the common good of the country as a whole and the wider society while also focussing on their educational and economic development. India’s Muslims and the other communities in the country, the book highlights, must practise the art of peaceful coexistence, as India is their common home. “One could say that God has destined them to live together here”, the author says.
