In the aftermath of the 9/11 attack in the United States and the consequent declaration of the global `war on terrorism', madrasa education has received unprecedented attention.

The intensified debates on the role of Muslim educational institutions - the dini madaris - revolve primarily around the following questions:

Is there a link between madaris and violence, anti-national activities, or terrorism?

How transparent is the funding and patronage structure of these Islamic educational networks?

What are the political implications of their educational system?

In answering these questions, the 12 original essays in this volume offer a survey on the phenomenon of madrasa education in India.
