In the book, Indian Muslims, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan explains that centuries ago, the Arab Muslims who came to India, were welcomed because of their superior qualities. In his Discovery of India, Jawahar Lal Nehru writes of the Arabs coming to India with their 'brilliant culture' (p.227). For centuries, the Muslims have lived amongst other cultures in India as one of them. Then India gained independence in 1947. But at this point, the Muslims, lacking an effective leadership, became the victims of circumstances. Prior to 1947, they had enjoyed the status of a giver group. But after 1947, they were reduced to being a mere taker group. And this is the greatest tragedy for the Muslims in modern India. This book offers guidance to Indian Muslims on how to become a giver community once again.
