India is the third country after Indonesia and Bangladesh with the largest Muslim population. After Hindus, who constitute 82% of the total population, Muslims, constituting about 12% of the total population, are the largest minority in India. This largest minority has made its presence felt by its constructive, developmental and nation-building works in science and technology, art, literature, politics, commerce, education and defence. Islam came to Indian (South-West coastal areas) soon after its emergence in Arabica, through traders. Its outstanding values of equality, social justice, tolerance attracted Indians and they embracing Islam.

Later some Muslims invaded India from the North and from the days of Shahabuddin Ghouri settled in India making it their home. The slave dynasty, the Khiljis, the Tughlaqs and Lodhis ruled India. In 1526 Babar invaded India and established the rule of Mughal dynasty. During all this period all Muslims that came while living and ruling here they accepted and internalized many socio-cultural value and practices and developed a beautiful language of Lashker, the Urdu, which is the best example of the composite Indian culture (Ganga-Jamuni Tahzib). Living with other communist Indian Muslims constitute an important and integral past of the whole Indian population and culture.

It has been made to present in the book the social psychological picture of Muslims of India in the post independence era. Most of the papers included in the book are empirical in nature and they, together with the theoretical ones, shed ample lights on the psychological including educational and Islamic dimensions of Muslims in India. For a wholesome presentation of the dimensions of Muslims the book has been divided into four sections.
