Understanding the Muslim mind

A fascinating account of the Muslims in twentieth century India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Through his biographical sketches of eight prominent Muslims—Sayyid Ahmed Khan (1817-1898), Fazlul Haq (1873-1962), Muhammad Ali Jinnah (1876-1948), Muhammad Iqbal (1876-1938), Muhammad Ali (1878-1931), Abul Kalam Azad (1888-1958), Liaqat Ali Khan (1895-1951) and Zakir Hussain (1897-1969) — Rajmohan Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, provides a deeply insightful and comprehensive picture of the Islamic community in the subcontinent today.

‘Rajmohan Gandhi’s excellent book...should waken us to the many whys of Hindu-Muslim relationships that remain unanswered to this day.’ M.V. Kamath in The Telegraph.
