Tremors of Violence: Muslim Survivors of Ethnic Strife in Western India
Tremors of Violence: Muslim Survivors of Ethnic Strife in Western India
Description
About the Book

This book is an ethnographic study of Muslim survivors of ethnic strife in Mumbai and two major cities of Gujarat. Based on narratives of and interviews with Muslim men and women it tries to understand the world and worldviews of those who have seen and lived through one or several violent confrontations and episodes in their lives. Through engagements with these survivors the book weaves several stories of devastating loss the painful and never absolute process of recovery and battles for survival and redress from the state.

By giving space to the voices of both women and men, to survivors of communal violence on the one hand and religious leaders and the non-laity on the other the book provides numerous insights; how Muslims construct their identity in such conditions; how Muslim voices in Mumbai are different from those in Gujarat; and how women's narratives are tinged with personal sadness but men's recollections are couched in more abstract terms. The author explores troubling issues like the ways in which the memories of violence bring about shifts in everyday practices of living and the understanding of what it means to be Muslim in India today; and how the victims of violence perceive their neighbours, their land, their own selves, and their practices, which have been violated during times of violence.

Categorized as the other and widely perceived as a terrorist, the Muslim in India today has become a shadowy and frightening figure. This book seeks to demystify this stereotyping by entering into the everyday lives of ordinary urban Muslims, listening to their practices, which have been violated and allowing their lives to leave and impress on the reader.

Employing the theory of everyday life and the narrative method, the author uncovers in the voices of men and in particular women the daily and pitiless battles they wage in the face of displacement and devastating and multiple losses. besides students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, Islam and religious studies, this important and disturbing book will be widely read by all those who want to understand the Muslim in contemporary India .

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
