Religious Minorities in South Asia: Selected Essays on Post-Colonial Situations (In 2 Volumes)

Lipi Ghosh (Author) Monirul Hussain (Editor)

This book has brought together a collection of carefully selected essays on religious minorities in South Asia with emphasis on the post-colonial situation covering Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Authors from around the South Asian region, France and UK use fresh empirical data to present portraits of religious minorities in each South Asian country individually. It is not a study of minority in isolation; it situates the religious minorities in the larger context of post-colonial history, society and polity. This two-volume work explores the relationship between the religious minorities and majorities on one hand and the relationship between the religious minorities and the state on the other. In the process it has not only reflected seriously on the minority situation but also on the actual functioning of social and political systems in South Asia. Hence, it has a great cross-disciplinary appeal. This work makes a major contribution to debate about reshaping our social, political and constitutional institutions operating in South Asia as we enter the 21 century.
