12 In the present compilation five new essays have, in all, been included which were not broadcast over the radio. These are:
- Influence of Muslims on Indian Civilization
- Role of Muslims in the Struggle for Freedom
- Indo-Islamic Culture
- Sufi-Saints of India and their Impact on Society
- Current Difficulties and Problems
It is hoped that the book, with these additions, will be read with interest among the educated circles of the various communities that go to make our people and prove of some value in reducing the ignorance and the attitude of indifference which exist in the sister-communities to wards the Muslims. It may, further, be helpful in promoting the growth of a broad, realistic, national perspective in the country it so badly needs today.
It will also, perhaps, not be too much to expect that, apart from non- Muslim friends, many educated Muslims, too, will find in the.se pages something which will be new to them and will add to their knowledge about themselves and go some way, however little, towards ridding them of the inferior1ty complex they have developed lately, but for which there can be no justification. The Muslim are not only citizens of an equal status with anybody in India ; they are also among its chief builders and architects, and hold position second to none among the peoples of the world for selfless service to the motherland.
They gave to India and to the Indian civilization a new Jibe and a new dimension and awakened its people to a new set of moral and spiritual values. Every patch of its land and every particle of its soil bears the imprint of their greatness and is a monument to their industry, earnestness and creative genius. In every aspect of Indian life and civilizations can be seen evidences of their noble aestheticism and cultural richness.
