About this Item

Contents: Preface. 1. Biographical sketch of his personality. 2. His visit to England (1858-1869). 3. Development of Sir Syed’s Ideas in England (1869-1970). 4. The theory of participatory rule. 5. Expression of national will for modern education. 6. Thought of Muslim nationalism. Index. “Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, born at Delhi, India on 17th October, 1817, Muslim educator, jurist and author, founder of the Anglo-Mohammedan Oriental College at Aligarh, UP, India, and principal motivating force behind the revival of Indian Islam in the late 19 century. His works, in Urdu, include essays on the life of Muhammad (PBUH) and commentaries on the Bible and on the Quran. Syed Ahmed had a versatile personality, and his position in the judicial department left him time to be active in many fields. His career as an author (in Urdu) started at the age of 23 with religious tracts. In 1847 he brought out a noteworthy book, Athar Assandid (“Monuments of the Great”), on the antiquities of Delhi. One of the most influential Muslim politicians of his time, Sir Syed was suspicious of the Indian Independence Movement and called upon Muslims to loyally serve the British Raj. He denounced nationalist organisations such as the Indian National Congress, instead forming organisations to promote Muslim unity and pro-British attitudes and activities. Sir Syed promoted the adoption of Urdu as the lingua franca of all Indian Muslims, and mentored a rising generation of Muslim politicians and intellectuals. Although hailed as a great Muslim leader and social reformer, Sir Syed remains the subject of controversy for his views on Hindu-Muslim issues.” (jacket). Bookseller Inventory # 74213
