The volume is based on a conference panel which focused specifically on the experience of indentured Muslim migrants and their descendants. Most studies on Indian indenture have almost been exclusively on Hindu religion and culture, even though an estimated 17 per cent of migrants were Muslims.
The core issues addressed in the study are: What role did Islam play in the lives of (Indian) Muslim migrants in their new settings during indenture and in the post-indenture period? How did Islam help migrants adapt and acculturate to their new environment? What have been the similarities and differences in practices, traditions and beliefs between Muslim communities in the different countries and between them and the country of origin? How have Islamic practices and Muslim identities transformed over time? What role does Islam play in the Muslims’ lives in these countries in the contemporary period? This work provides a series of case studies that focus on the various countries to which the indentured Indians migrated, such as Mauritius, South Africa, Guyana, Trinidad, Suriname and Fiji.

Maurits S. Hassankhan is is Head of the History Department of the Faculty of Humanities at Anton de Kom University of Suriname.
Goolam Vahed is Associate Professor in the Department of History, University of Kwa Zulu Natal.
Lomarsh Roopnarine is Associate Professor of Caribbean and Latin American Studies at Jackson State University, US.
