Abstract

How did the Indian ‛ūlamā’ go from being an intellectual-literary elite in pre-British India to becoming ‘representatives’ for British Indian Muslims by the end of British occupation? In this paper I argue that particular British Colonial social policies, in particular those related to education and law, during the nineteenth century, were instrumental in the social transformation of the ‛ūlamā’ in British India.
