Usually, even when I disagree with Shourie, I used to appreciate his skill as a writer – something that is conspicuous by its absence from this book. I would recommend this book to only Donald Trump.

But i am still not able to understand why would a muslim accept some of these crazy fatwas? A must read for those who think on the lines of ‘Sarva Dharma Sambhav’ Equal worlc to all Religions.

The author has done commendable research in the topic giving a clear insight into what Islam actually is.

But, wworld times, he seems to be repetitive. But the latter is not an issue compared to the magnitude of facts he has put forth. I recommend this book to those who are into research on Semitic religions.


This book is not for light reading but yes, it is a very good book indeed. A big thanks to Shourie sir for his work. Mar 17, Arvind rated it it was amazing Shelves: The book is exhaustive and hence can get repititive.


Jul 27, Anant Singh rated it it was amazing Shelves: An eye openerArun does his homework very well that makes the novel more interesting! This book is backed by the kind of meticulous research that could be the envy of any great scholar. Ironically worlx ideology that led to partition still thrives well in this country. In spite of all the clamoring by secularists that extremists like ISIS have nothing to do with religion, the book lays threadbare the theology that fatws at the heart of what motivates the faithful for Jihad.

On the flip side, the book could have been much better edited. Fool prof thesis, academically researched and brilliantly narrated!! Puts an informed perspective to a little known topic in the English language!!

My only problem is with the attitude of the hypothesis- it is not ready for any softness on the matter, or rationalize the issue with an contextual understanding! However, it leaves me with much to ponder! Jul 24, Hemant Kumar rated it it was amazing.

Liked the comparision of Sharia with another tatalitarion ideology of communism the author is well versed with that too. The author has countered the usual claims of secularists of “this verse is cited out of context” etc.

Would recommend to people who are open minded and wish to understand Shariat in action i. May 29, Imran rated it liked it.

This all lead to conclusion that fatwas are mostly for ritualistic part of the religion like what void your fasting attract thousand queries and fatwas thereon. The introduction of the book claimed that the book covers fatwas issued during years and their impact on Muslim psyche especially Muslims of Indo-Pak. But the writer kept on crying for Muslims not treating Hindus well by bringing acts of rulers and quoting fatwas out of context. The pet peeve of the book was why Muslims chose to slaughter cow in the presence of other animals in India and why Muslims got right to divorce.

So the most of the part, the writer could not put himself in place of those who follow Islam and these fatwas. I don’t blame writer as his Hindu background and religious philosophy is different from Islam.

Many of Hindus even don’t consider Hinduism a religion, whereas Islam is considered a complete code of life. The only part I found interesting and informative was chapter dealing with fatwas on independence movement. Apr 06, Susheil Kumar rated it really liked it. I was surprised at the way Ali brothers who had reverred Mahatma Gandhi so much during Non Cooperation Movement jettisoned him after the movement. The author has made bold statements arkn backs it with research.


He offers some solutions but they are really not solutions but hopes. He highlights certain portion of Quran where the literal meaning of verses promotes hatred and is used by the fundamentalist group it is a very good book to understand how the Islamic community per se operates in India.

He highlights certain portion of Quran where the literal meaning of verses promotes hatred and is used by the fundamentalist groups. A must read for all A very insightful book. May b there is a counterpoint to it, but the author has presented his understanding quite forcefully. Jun 09, Arjun Pradhan rated it it was amazing. View all 6 comments.
