Description

History of Muslim Civilization in India and Pakistan By S.M Ikram. The present generation of students and scholars has luckily  been spared that agony· which the • Muslim students of Indian history has to undergo some thirty, years ago. Although since the days· of the Crusades . the European accounts of Islam and Muslim history have often been marked by a lack of knowledge and understanding in India, imperialist considerations strengthened the urge or paint the ”Muslim period” of Indian history in particularly lucid colors. This was the Hell which was to be the antechamber to the British Heaven. The circumstances which resulted in large-scale distortion of lndo-Muslim history from the .middle of the nineteenth century have been dealt. elsewhere, but this trend did not remain confined to the British writers. All those who drew. upon the material collected in English by the Anglo-Indian writers, inevitably, echoed this point of view. As an illustration of the usual view of the Muslim dominion over the Indian subcontinent, it would be enough to quote from the first volume of the Story of Civilization by Will Durant, an influent American writer whose Story of Philosophy has been a best seller. for a· quarter of a century. He says: ”The Mohammedan Conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precarious thing, whose delicate complex . of order and liberty, culture and peace may at any time be overthrown by bcµ-bairams invading from without or multiplying within.
