Religion and Politics in South Asia

Religion and Politics in South Asia

This collection explores the complex relationship between religion and politics in South Asia. 2017 marks 70 years since the Partition of India, which led to the division between the newly created, and predominantly Muslim state of Pakistan, and modern India with its large Hindu majority. The partition resulted in the largest forced migrations of the 20th century, and significant interfaith violence. To commemorate and reflect on this anniversary, articles from Journal of Islamic Studies and Journal of Hindu Studies offer academic perspectives on the last 70 years, as well as religion and politics in the region today.

Articles are free to read online for a limited time.
