Islam, women, and violence in Kashmir : between India and Pakistan by Nyla Ali Khan( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1989, religious fundamentalism and exclusionary nationalism in Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir have generated political and social turmoil that has eroded the ethos and fabric of Kashmiri culture. These forces are responsible for the silencing of dissenters, economic deprivation, lack of infrastructure, mass displacements, political anarchy, and repression of women. This book seeks to analyze the effects of nationalist, militant, and religious discourses and praxes on a gender-based hierarchy"--Provided by publisher
The fiction of nationality in an era of transnationalism by Nyla Ali Khan( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book shows, for instance, how Naipaul articulates a sensibility created by multilayered identities and the remapping of old imperial landscapes, in the process suggesting a new dynamic of power relations in which politics and selfhood, empire and psychology, prove to be profoundly interrelated; how Rushdie encourages a nationalist self-imagining and a rewriting of history that incorporate profound cultural, religious, and linguistic differences into our sense of identity; how Ghosh is critical of the putative cultural and religious necessity to forge a unified nationalist identity, arguing that no single theory sufficiently frames the multiple inheritances of present diasporic subjectivities; and how Desai seeks to imagine a responsible form of artistic, social, and political agency. Although transnationalism, then, can have positive effects, which have been celebrated in terms such as hybridity, the book suggests why this sort of term, too, cannot be a stopping-place for our thinking about a world radically transformed by postcolonial struggles."--pub. description

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The origins of the struggle of the people of Kashmir to determine their own future, following Partition and the subsequent refusal of the newly independent State of India to grant a promised plebiscite, are here examined from the unique perspective of the granddaughter of Kashmir's first Prime Minister examining the coup of 1953. Using family archival material, the author unearths both a family's story and the background to the decades' long suppression of this cause. She recounts the measures taken against the Plebiscite Front, and the more than ten-year imprisonment of Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, during which the struggle was spearheaded by his indomitable wife, Akbar Jehan
