Questions related to Islamic History
If you were to design a course to teach Islamic history, (from outside colonial narratives), within the perspective of Islamic culture, what Islamic thinkers, poets, writers, theorists, and artists would you include and why?
Additionally, should you exclude any controversial sources shared among extremist groups, or should they be included, and subject to rigorous critique by Muslim students?
I am researching the history and development of Islamist student organisations in the Indian subcontinent and their impact on the political scene. The organisations will include Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT) of Pakistan, Islami Chhatra Shibir (BICS) of Bangladesh and SIO of India.
