(p.1) Introduction
Islam in Pakistan

Muhammad Qasim Zaman

Princeton University Press

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book's main themes. There is a significant body of literature on different facets of Islam in colonial South Asia and in Pakistan. What is lacking is a work that brings them together within the confines of a single study. This book deals with the history of, and the contestations on, Islam in colonial India and Pakistan. It addresses questions such as, how have various facets of Islam interacted with one another and with a state created in the name of Islam? How are the different Islamic orientations to be distinguished from one another? What sort of constraints have the differences among them placed on the ability of their adherents to join hands at particular moments in history?

Keywords:   colonial Pakistan, Islam, colonial India, South Asia
