This paper explores how to properly orient Canadian undergraduate students who are to read Indian Muslim novels in English, as distinct from other English-medium work from South Asia. The paper addresses how to impart the Indian Muslim cultural heritage; how it differs from much believed about Islam or Indian Muslims in the present and the need for full historical orientation.
From the Paper:"To introduce an item of Islamic literature in present-day North America promises ample student misunderstanding due to the sway of media propaganda and wide scale ignorance of Islam as a varied phenomenon. (See Lindblom 2003) When preparing first classes for undergraduates who will read South Asian novels by Indian Muslim authors, one needs to expect low general knowledge, inspired to see how exposure to Indian Muslim literature can produce better understanding and curiosity to do with an Islamic world at least as varied as its Christian or other counterparts."
