Muslim Attitudes Towards Political Modernity | Rao Shahid Rasheed
(In the Context of Twentieth Century South Asia)
Hard Cover
Language: English

This book is an attempt to understand the political imagination of South Asian Muslims. It seeks to understand the responses of South Asian Muslims to the new structures of political thought and action produced by the British colonization of India. Traditional ulama and Muslim intellectuals tried to understand and define their position vis-a-vis political modernity. Major scholars and ulama of Twentieth century who responded to political modernity through their scholarly works or actions include Maulana Mahmud al- Hasan, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Muhammad Iqbal, Maulana Hussain Ahmad Madani, Maulana Abdul Bari Farangi Mahali, Maulana Obaidullah Sindhi, and Maulana Abul A'la Maududi. Linking their agency to the particular historical conditions, the book captures the responses of these and other important ulama and intellectuals. The diversity and richness of these responses is a testimony that far from being stagnant, South Asian Islam remained a creative tradition.
