About the Book

This book deals with some vital contemporary questions and doubts about the role and character of Islam which, in its extreme form, has taken the shape of what Huntington has called the 'Clash of Civilisations'. Huntington has wrongly pitted Islam against the Western civilization whereas the author has proved that Islam stands for dialogue and cooperation.

The author has shown through documentary evidences how false and prejudiced are the allegations currently leveled against Islam. Unlike many traditional defenders of Islam, he has not indulged in counter-accusations. Instead, he has holds the rulers of Islamic countries guilty, for their conduct is contrary to the basic teachings and principles of Islam as enunciated by the Prophet (PBUH).

The book deals with such vital topics as the Islamic attitude towards non-Muslims and minorities, pluralism and coexistence, gender justice, public health and, above all media and communication. It projects true image of Islam.
