 Religion and the Problem of Islam

Show Summary Details


This chapter covers the colonial regime's fraught relationship with Islam. Whilst expressing deep suspicion and hostility towards Islam, whether in traditional or reformist guise, administrators were far too worried about provoking a revolt akin to that in the Caucasus, or the Indian Mutiny, to make any serious attempt to undermine it.

Keywords: Islam; traditional; reformist; paranoia; revolt

Chapter.  15574 words.  Illustrated.
