Jihadist Threat to India: The Case for Islamic Reformation By An Indian Muslim

Tufail Ahmad (Author)

At a time when support to the ISIS is growing among Indian Muslims, this book will emerge as the basic text to understanding Islamic radicalisation. It offers a profound understanding of jihadist organisations based in Pakistan and how the Pakistani state's support to these organisations perennially undermines peace in Afghanistan and India. With this collection of published columns and research papers the reader comes to grasp that the Arab Spring failed because of the absence of an infrastructure of liberal ideas in Muslim societies, which also means that jihadist organisations such as the Islamic State (ISIS) find a ready audience in countries from India to the Middle East thanks to the presence of an infrastructure of ideas supportive of everyday Islamism in their society. While this book is relevant for Indian military officials and intelligence analysts, the author's columns reproduced from Indian newspapers posit the idea that Indian democracy has emerged as the best living space for Muslims in modern times.
