Numbering more than 170 million, India’s Muslims constitute the largest religious minority. Beyond the statistics, it is a certain scarred legacy that underlines their presence among other religious groups. Muslims, as a minority, have been the most socio-politically and economically deprived communities in the country. As the processes of creation, procession and articulation of identity becomes increasingly complex, the critical question is: what does it mean to be a Muslim in contemporary India?
At the Department of Sociology, Maitreyi College, as we continue our engagement with the theme ‘Voices from the Margins’, we seek to dismantle and reconstruct the narrative of marginalisation of Muslims in India. Imagine’18 is here with an array of events that bring out this spirit:
