Product Description


This book examines the political dimensions of Islam in predivided Pakistan (1947-1971), one of the first new Muslim nations to commit itself to an Islamic political order and one in which the national debate on Islamic, political, and ideological issues has been the most persistent, focused, and rich of any dialogues in the contemporary Muslim world. The author draws on the findings of a survey he conducted among two influential social groups, the ulama and modern professionals, as well as on the writings of Muslim intellectuals. He probes the major Islamic positions on critical issues concerning national identity, the purpose of the state, the form of government, and free, socialist, and mixed economies. The empirical findings of the study not only outline the ideological backdrop of contemporary Islamic reassertion, but also reveal the diversity as well as tensions within it.
