About the Book: Hinduism and Islam: A Comparative Study, an outcome of arduous research, presents the basic elements of Hinduism and Islam in comparison and contrast. In view of the rise of Hindu fundamentalism in India in recent years, there is an urgent need for debate on the subject. Written by a research scholar in an authoritative, precise and lucid form, the book reveals, many startling facts about Hinduism, and unveils, in some measure, the beauty and strength inherent in Islam. In the modern world, a global village, a common religion for the global human community is yet to be recognised. Islam, which declares that all human beings have a common ancestry, stands out to be the only choice. An open dialogue between Hindus and Muslims may open the door of some new dimension in this regard. The book which complements the author’s earlier work, Hindu Chauvinism and Muslims in India, is intended to provoke such a dialogue.
