Bharatiya Janata Party and the Indian Muslims

Muhammad Mujeeb Afzal

The Hindus and the Muslims in India are often projected as absolute identities. The present study argues that a number of identities-communitarian, caste, and regional-exist in India and compete to preserve their respective traditions. This is a pioneering attempt by a Pakistani scholar to study an important aspect of Indian politics which is of vital significance for the present-day India and the future relations between the two great communities of India. It will be of interest to the academicians as well as general readers in South Asia.
