    FRIAS research project

    „Bürger mit Turban“

    The book focuses on the history of the Muslims in Delhi in the long nineteenth century, from the British conquest in 1803 to the end of the Khilafat movement in 1922. The central thesis of the book is that religious identity became central only towards the last third of the nineteenth century, and that this development was tightly linked to the creation of a middle class. This middle class was based on a new concept of respectability (sharafat), which permitted at the same time to draw a distance from the old nobility, to bring the learned section of the community (administrators, scholars and religious leaders) closer to the businessmen and demarcate it sharply from the subalterns.
