Working with Muslims goes down to the ground in eight major states of India and investigates the reality of non-government organizations and their development work, with the largest marginalized minority in the world’s largest democracy.

It asks the simple questions (Who is working with Muslims? On which issues?), and the complex ones (What lens is deployed? How does this work navigate the mine eld of identity?). With intellectual precision, it dissects the voluntary sector, interrogates identity, engages with many faces of ‘development’; and tells stories of ordinary women and men, of clarity amid obfuscation, of fear mixed with immense hope.
