Vision 2025 Social Economic Inequalities: Why Does India’s Economic Growth Need n Inclusive Agenda (2018) By Amir Ullah Khan Abdul Azim Akhtar

The book Vision 2025 Social Economic Inequalities: Why Does India’s Economic Growth Need n Inclusive Agenda is an excellent work by Amir Ullah Khan and Abdul Azim Akhtar on the exclusion study of Indian Muslims. The book is very successful in representing the socio-economic status of the Indian Muslim in-depth, systematic and full of evidentiary articulations. 

On the occasion of the Republic Day of India, IOS presents its publications on the Role of Muslims in the Freedom Struggle Movement of India

Throughout the freedom struggle movement of India, Muslims played a quintessential role, which remains largely sidelined in the nationalist narrative of the nation. The exclusion of Muslims in the narrative is manifold- the historical bias and hatred leading to "othering" of the community, to say the least. In the present times, Muslims are often questioned by the Hindutva forces and asked to prove their patriotism to the country. Clearly, it is in conflict with the historical facts of Muslims and their contribution to the making of Independent India.

The IOS has been proactive in bringing Muslims and their experience into the mainstream narrative of India at large through research, academic programs, publication, etc. Below is a list of literature based on the historical facts published by the IOS to highlight the glorious participation of Muslims in the independence movement of 1947.

Book Review

QURANIC GUIDANCE: THERAPY AND ISLAMIC COUNSELLING INTERVENTIONS

by Akbar Hussain. New Delhi, Institute of Objective Studies, 2021, pp. 76. ISBN: 9789384973971.

The need for trained Muslim counsellors to serve as chaplains has grown exponentially in our times owing to peoples’ modern lifestyles. And as Islam is an all-embracing way of life that caters for the needs of those in distress, in hospital, prison or at home, the author has accomplished a valuable task in encapsulating both the theory and practice of counselling along the Islamic lines.
