The present book, which is beyond the constraints of rigid periodization, is an endeavour to challenge certain stereotypes relating to Islam, Sufism, folk-songs and inter-community relations in the South Asian context. By consulting Persian, Urdu, Bengali and English sources, the present work suggests that Sufism was more heterogeneous and complex than we are prepared to accept.
