Description from the publisher:
From the back cover: The Present day world is echoing with the slogan of New World order. Will this New World order maintain the existing Nation-State system or will it demolish it? Did the emergence of Nationalism prove life-furthering or life-destroying? We have already observed that it had demolished the last remnants of the Christendom in the West. The paralyzing consequences of this theory are more obvious and deeper in the Muslim World. It swallowed up the semblance of the Unity of the Muslim World. Therefore, it is argued that the theory of Nationalism and Nation-State are just antithetical to the universalism of Islamic ideology and its conception Islamic Ummah. The present work is a critical examination of the responses of Muslim Scholars and activists of Indian Sub-Continent on Nationalism. The views of three great scholars and activists like Muhammad Iqbal, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, and Maulana Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi are explored and analyzed in the light of the Qur'an and Sunnah. This though provoking book is an access to the contemporary Islamic thought. Both, students and scholars interested in understanding Nationalism and contemporary Islamic thought will enjoy the reading of this book.
