This is not due to any dearth of material, because the Muslims have been keen recorders of events. Nor does this history lack elements of interest; even as a tale of adventure it is worth telling. The Muslims established and sustained an empire in the subcontinent which lasted for several centuries. When it decline and fell, it left in its wake problems which persists in the unhappy relations between India and Pakistan. What little has been written about the Muslims of the Subcontinent, deals mostly with the monarchs and their policies. Attracted by their magnificence or impelled by the desire to condemn them, historians have devoted their entire attention to the rulers and none to the people. This, there exists the most deplorable ignorance of the psychology of the Indo-Pakistan Muslim community, of the thinking of its leaders and masses, and of the history of its origins, developments and integration. For this has been necessary to go back to the very beginning and to take into consideration the relevant factors in the entire history of community. The author exposes, in this first study on the subject, its peculiar situation which has moulded its ideas, its destiny and its integrity.
