Symposium: "One Hundred Years of All-India Muslim League"

November 4, 2006

Formed in 1906, the All-India Muslim League trained and groomed generations of Muslim leaders on local, national and international scales as it played pivotal roles in the two partitions of India and the creation of Pakistan and Bangladesh. In that regard, no history of nationalism in India can be written without due attention to the Muslim League. However, the history of AIML is of even more relevance in today's world. The oft-heard refrain about the lack of democracy and democratic practices in the Muslim world fails utterly to account for institutions like the Muslim League—an erasure which deserves a sustained critique through renewed attention to this organization's history of charted and documented practice of Muslim democracy in India.

Sponsored by the Committee on Southern Asian Studies, the Norman Wait Harris Fund of the Center for International Studies, and the American Institute of Pakistan Studies.
