India's partition : process, strategy, and mobilization ( Book )
13 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 316 libraries worldwide
A collection of essays analyzing the events leading to the partition of India and to the birth of Pakistan, this book argues against the theory that "Muslim separatism" was the cause behind the cataclysmic event, India's partition, and the subsequent birth of the two nations. Hasan outlines the reasons behind the sudden rise of the Muslim League from a relatively insignificant position to that of being the strongest representative of the Muslim community in India. He ascribes it to a series of miscalculations on the part of the ministries with the League and its claim of being the sole mouthpiece of the Indian Nationalist opinion. The first four chapters of the book include extracts from the speeches and writings of Nehru, Jinnah, Azad, and Gandhi. Then there are essays, by noted historians in the field, which look at issues such as the political representation of Muslims; the organization and groups and of the rural elite in local and national level politics; the constitutional design and personal charisma of Jinnah in relation to the demand for Pakistan; and the rejection of "community consciousness" among Muslims as the driving force behind the formation of Pakistan.

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
Though Islam and Muslims form an integral part of the rich history and culture of India, their voice in present times is a muted one. Academic discourse in the West, which is increasingly engaging with Islam, thus chooses to largely ignore their existence. Much of what is written about India's Muslims, by Indian as well as Western scholars, tends to highlight the reactionary and strident over the moderate and normal. In this book Mushirul Hasan articulates a vision of Islam or rather the many different kinds of Islam, instead of the frightening monolith of popular perception, living in harmony with other faiths, and of Indian Muslims, inheritors of the great Indian civilization, living in a plural society. Engaging with the debates surrounding the society, polity, and history of India's Muslims, and using historical and literary sources, as well as the writings of modern Muslim thinkers like Aziz Ahmad and Mohammad Mujeeb, Hasan traces the development of contemporary ideas about Muslims from the mid-nineteenth century onwards, through British rule and the partition, to the present day. For Hasan, a truly secular reading of Indian history reveals Indian Islam as one that exists in a pluralist milieu.
