Islam in South Asia: Soundings on Partition and Its Aftermath, Volume 6

Mushirul Hasan (Editor)
Synopsis This project started almost eight years ago. We look back with satisfaction and quiet sense of pride at the six handsome volumes that have appeared. Through these volumes, the editor has succeeded in dispelling the many myths and stereotypes about Indian Islam and Muslims in South Asia. They certainly add to the otherwise scarce historical literature on the history of Islam in South Asia.

This volume, the last in the series, concerns itself with India's partition. It uncovers the impressions and analysis of some prominent individuals who were either a witness to the making of Pakistan or were connected with its founder, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, M.C. Chagla and M.R.A. Baig were, for example, closely associated with him before they decided to resign from the Muslim League.

The story of the bloody partition is not covered but its aftermath is. A number of essays therefore turn to specific minority issues.
