(p.263) Epilogue
Islam in Pakistan

Muhammad Qasim Zaman

Princeton University Press

This epilogue addresses the following questions: how significantly has Islam in Pakistan changed over the course of the country's history? More broadly, how different does the religious landscape look in the early twenty-first century in relation to how it had appeared a hundred or so years earlier? It begins with a discussion of what has not changed very much. It argues that despite modernist stereotypes, the `ulama are not necessarily averse to accommodating themselves and their norms to changing needs. Furthermore, Islamic modernism is not necessarily a thing only of the past. The Pakistani governing elite retain their modernist impulses. And modernism lives on, among other things, in the impact it has had on rival trends over the course of the past hundred years.

Keywords:   Islam, Pakistan, modernism
