About the book
The 21st century witnessed the global surge of Islamophobia and the subsequent rise of various movements that cashed in the growing anti-Muslim sentiment. But what actually made it so easy to hate Muslims? How did the Muslim world turn from a political, military and intellectual powerhouse into a dark realm of regression, extremism, backwardness and chaos. Where did we go wrong? This book tries to delve deep into these questions without getting into crazy conspiracy theories and victim mindset.‘Husna’ is the depiction of the Muslims in 19th century, post-Mughal India.It is an attempt to portray the frustration of losing political power and glory, the entrenchment of radical and regressive ideas and the domination of reactionary mullahs that unfortunately shapes the community’s outlook and condition even today.
