The Twelver Shi'a as a Muslim Minority in India : Pulpit of Tears, Hardback Book

The Twelver Shi'a as a Muslim Minority in India : Pulpit of Tears Hardback

Part of the Routledge Persian and Shi'i Studies series

Description

One of the most important current debates within and about Islam concerns its relation with power.

Can Muslims be fundamentally content without power or as a minority?

This book considers the voice of an important Muslim minority through its sermons.

Indian Shi'i Muslims are a minority within a minority, constituting about ten to fifteen percent of the population as a whole, but comprising of about fifteen million people.

Ten sermons are presented entirely and many more are quoted in order to analyze the preaching tradition in full.

This book is the first survey to present the Indian mourning gathering and explain the history of this extraordinary phenomenon.
