rokomariThis book is about ten years ago several things occurred which made me think about the Muslim culture that I believed to be mine–this culture was under attack from various sides of society. It is important to understand at the outset that this book cannot encompass the vast diversity of India. India is the country where Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism were born. To India fled the Zoroastrians from Persia (Iran) to escape persecution after the advent of Islam in that country. Christians have also lived in India from about 50 AD, a time which precedes the coming of Jesuits priests to Akbar’s court and of Christian missionaries in the wake of the East India Company and the British Empire in India. This book is more concerned with the shared culture of Hindus, who were in India before the Muslims came there, first as traders and later as invaders, and the Muslims who stayed and became a part of India.
