Misconceptions persist regarding the Islamic identity as the monolithic and homogeneous. However, Muslim identity is segmented, differentiated and heterogeneous. It is necessary to have a comprehensive understanding of the various group identities of the Muslims. Muslims having caste like features in India and ethnicity in Canada suggest that they are far from forming a homogeneous and coherent group identity. The present book is an endeavor towards unraveling and re-examining caste and ethnicity among Muslims in India and Canada respectively within the sociological perspective.
