Muslim Elite: A Sociological Analysis

Zia A. Pathan (Author)
Synopsis The idea of supremacy have been visualized by many social scientists. The present study "Muslim Elite" is the sociological analysis on the Muslim community and the emergence of Muslim elite. In the present study the Muslim elite are studied as a moral resource and as a source of inspiration for the minorities and backward community.

In the light of surveys and commission reports, it is established that Muslims are one of the backward and marginalized communities of India. They represent an economically and educationally backward community and their share in spheres of economy and education is far below than normal. On the other hand, Muslim Community is undergoing a great transition and churning, there is no denying to the fact that there is rise in realist and competent Muslim elite, who compete with others in intellectual pursuits and develop a spirit of self-confidence. Muslim elite can guide sinking ship to the shore and lift up a society from sinking, because it has the divine book, it has the prophet's tradition, it has the faith that stops it from becoming a materialist or an exclusive devotee of wealth, power and status. If anything would count there it would be faith and good deeds, a fear of God, a deep sense of duty, genuine obedience, and selfless service to humanity.

In this study an attempt is made to understand the socio-economic and educational background of the Muslim elite and prominent factors responsible for the emergence of Muslim Elite. The inter-generational as well as the intra-generational mobility are studied to find the degree and direction of social mobility among the Muslim elite.

The Muslim community have the culture which varies a lot with the other religious cultures of India and as the study is associated with the Muslim elite. Thus it is profoundly considerable to understand, whether there is group interaction, coherence and cooperation between the Muslim elite and the people of other community. The study "Muslim Elite : Sociological Analysis" reveals that the Muslim elite participate in various socio-cultural activities of their non-Muslim friends and also visits temple occasionally on invitation from other community people. This indicates that the elite not only have faith in their own religion but they also appreciate and have admiration for other religions, this shows the feeling of unity in diversity in the country like India and which conveys the message of common Indian culture.
