Title:  Evolution of Islamic Dominance in Eastern Bengal in Pre Independent India

Date:  Friday, Jan 25, 2019    Time:  8:00PM - 9:00PM     Location:  Ananda Mandir

Description:  This session that examines an important piece of the overall social evolution in the Indian subcontinent. More specifically, it analyses the forces, social, geographical, political, and economic that helped shape the dominance of Islam as a religion in the eastern part of undivided Bengal in pre-independent India. It will review various prevailing theories of this historic transformation and offer a view that is a bit unorthodox in approach and seeks to explain the phenomenon through additional lenses (geographical and economic) that the other theories do not directly address. Mosleh Ahmed, a veteran of our Alochana Group will lead the session.
