this should get you started
also, look at:
Islamic Revival in British India: Deoband, 1860-1900 (Oxford India Paperbacks) by Barbara Daly Metcalf
The Ulama in Contemporary Islam: Custodians of Change (Hardcover)
by Muhammad Qasim Zaman
Devotional Islam and Politics in British India: Ahmad Riza Khan Barelwi and His Movement, 1870-1920 by Usha Sanyal
also, looking up 'deoband' in ure campus library journals will get you to a collection of journal articles on ure subject.
Many, many thanks; very kind of you - I really appreciate it. :)
1. Can anyone recommend any books of a 'general' nature about the break-up of India - the events leading up to it and what happened during it, the deaths, etc.
Many thanks, wassalaamu'alaikum. :)
