At home in India : a restatement of Indian Muslims by Salman Khurshid( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive, definitive and forceful account - by a witness to recent history in the making - which highlights the fact that Muslims do feel at home in India and also provides rare insights into their thought processes, their aspirations and their problems As a former Union minister who has held several crucial portfolios, Salman Khurshid, on the basis of his vast and varied experience, recounts how Muslims in India accept this country as their own despite many provocations and allegations doubting their patriotism. In the process, he reinforces his contentions by providing numerous real-life examples of how the community has proved its commitment and capability by making immense contributions in almost all fields. This timely volume, which covers a wide span from the late nineteenth century to the present, brings out succinctly the pivotal roles played by a galaxy of distinguished Indian Muslims. The author describes how the Aligarh Muslim University in Uttar Pradesh and the Jamia Millia Islamia (Delhi) came into being and how many of their alumni became part of the freedom movement and made sincere efforts at fostering and maintaining communal harmony. Post-Independence, Salman Khurshid emphasizes the importance of outstanding Muslim leaders who served as role models for the younger generation. The author does not shy away from hypersensitive issues such as terrorism, communal riots, a Uniform Civil Code, present-day Muslim leadership (or lack of) and the place of women in Islam, with a focus on the Shah Bano case. He underscores the significance of the 'trust deficit' on the part of Muslims vis-à-vis the police (based on a recent report of the directors-general of police from different states) and spotlights the July 2014 verdict of the Supreme Court with regard to the Shariat and fatwas. He rounds off the book with an analysis of what the future could hold after the recent victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party and its allies in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Salman Khurshid tackles each and every topic with candour, sensitivity and forthrightness

Justice at heart : life journey of Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer by Salman Khurshid( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] is the story of a crusader against injustice, a legendary judge who lived and worked for social justice for the people of India. Justice Krishna Iyer was a towering and a multifaceted personality having a varied experience of life. He has inspired many persons by his philosophy of life, and his insatiable hunger for socio-economic justice. An ardent advocate of change for better, a person with simple habits, he was a friend of all. If one has to sum up in one sentence this incredible personality one would simply say that he too wrote the constitution through his judicial pronouncements enriching it immensely and indeed explicating the intent and aspiration of the noble framers, making it truly a living document of our nationhood."--
