Constructing Pakistan

Foundational Texts and the Rise of Muslim National Identity, 1857- 1947

Masood Ashraf Raja

Constructing Pakistan is a multidisciplinary attempt at explaining the rise and eventual expression of the national identity of the Muslims of India. In the process of the author's discussion, the book also challenges and intervenes into the major debates on the history of Indian nationalism and the lack of any worthwhile works dealing specifically with the early phases of Indian Muslim national identity.
