In The Present Work, The Foundations Of The Composite Culture In India, The Focus Of The Author Is The Process Of Establishment Of Hindu-Muslim Unity As A Result Of Historical, Social And Cultural Factors Over A Period Of Ten Centuries. Traversing This Era, He Reveals How The Muslim Rulers Contributed Such Harmony, And How The Two Cultures Exchanged And Accepted Each Other'S Tenets In Order To Enrich And Formulate A Composite India Culture. With The Objective Of Exploring The Foundations On Which The Composite Culture Of India Rests, The Author Examines The Contribution Of Sufism Which Inherently Connotes Syncretism And Tolerance - As Well As The Simultaneous Rise Of The Bhakti Movement In Medieval India.

Just I seen the preview of the book regarding Mouneshwara. Authour not made any research while ifferntiate writing about Shri mouneshwar.He was not a muslim. He was kammar(Blacksmith).He told not to differentiate hindus & muslims.
He has many friends who are muslims.Mouniddin is of them.
You can see his gori in Tinthani.
Mr.Mohammada please visit to tinthan & make some research about Mouneshwar
The temple was built as masjid only because to tell every body that hindu muslims are same.
please study his Vachanas.
