Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Islam, conflict, and democracy. It focuses on the position of many Muslims in India and aims to see what lessons can be extrapolated from there. While it may be surprising to draw conclusions about Muslims from the case of Indian Muslims, considering that India is a minority Muslim population compared to the Muslim-majority countries of Pakistan and Afghanistan, Muslim-minority status in India is quite revealing in terms of the general lessons that this chapter aims to extract.

Keywords: conflict; democracy; Indian Muslims; India; Muslim population
