The Deoband Madrassah Movement: Countercultural Trends and Tendencies

Front Cover
Anthem Press, Mar 1, 2015 - Political Science - 300 pages
This innovative book analyses the growth of Deobandi Islam, a religious sect whose followers include extremist groups, through the frame of a counterculture in conflict with mainstream Muslim society. Due to its relationship with the Taliban, close links to al-Qaeda, and worldwide reach through the ‘Tablighi Jamaat’ (Proselytization Group), the Deoband Madrassah Movement has come to acquire global significance. In Pakistan, Deobandi schools have increasingly been associated with the rise of an intolerant and militant strain of Islam linked with terrorist activities.

Full of lies and misinformations!😕
I haven't gone through the book and I would never do so as the preview above shows how dramatic the book is and many lies are there in the book. The first and
foremost one is that "Deobandi Islam". There is no such terminology according to Islamic academics. The second is that Deobandi is a sect. Deobandi is not a sect. They are "Hanafis". They follow Hanafiate, one of the most well known jurisprudences in Islam. The preview so nonesense so how about the book.
