Islam in the Public Sphere: Religious groups in India 1900-1947
Islam in the Public Sphere: Religious groups in India 1900-1947
Description
From the Jacket:

Islam in the public sphere explores the contestation of the public sphere by different Islamic groups and traditions in colonial India. It traces the genesis of madrasa-based movements and Islamic groups in South Asia and helps understand the roots of the current state of Islamic activism and militancy in the region.

Reetz presents a detailed comparative analysis of debates, activities, and institutions of major Islamic groups and movements between 1900 and 1947. He studies a wide rang of reformist and revivalist traditions. These include seminary movements organized around a particular lead madrasa (Deobandi, Barelwi, Nadwa, Firangi Mahall) and revivalist groups attempting to increase religious awareness in ritual observance, in public life, and in politics, such as the Tablighis or the Ahl-i Hadith.

This book discusses how, in response to the political awakening during the anti-colonial movement, these groups set out to chart territories, mark areas of influence, and raise stakes of control and competition, not unlike mainstream political parties. Examining rare source material such as the speeches and documents of the Jamiyyat-e Ulama-e-Hind, the Ahrar, and the Khaksar, Reetz concludes that there is a close connection and continuity between the beginnings of these groups before Independence and their current incarnations in the subcontinent.

This book will be an interesting read for historians, political scientists, and journalists as well as scholars and students interested in religious studies and the history of Islam and Islamic groups, with respect to nationalist politics in South Asia.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
