Rafiq Dossani: Muslims of India - Their Politics, Identity and Economy

Wed, Aug 10 2011 - 6:00pm

Muslims of India: Their Politics, Identity and Economy

Rafiq Dossani, Ph.D.; Author; Senior Research Scholar, Stanford University

India’s 160 million Muslims differ geographically by language, socio-economic status and culture. The Muslim-Indian community shares a common trajectory of challenges in their political power and socio-economic status. Their identity, in the eyes of the average Indian, is evermore monolithic and faith-based. To some politicians, Muslim Indians are now considered a security risk. Dossani will discuss the causes of their challenges and possible future.
