Religion In South Asia: A Liberative Perspective, (Edited by Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer)

Religion In South Asia: A Liberative Perspective

A new book Edited by Dr. Asghar Ali Engineer

Though Liberation Theology has yet not struck its roots in South Asia, some scholars have, however, started taking deep interest in it. As a result, we have begun to see the liberation content in every religion in the region.

The present book offers the researches of some of these enterprising scholars. All the major religions in South Asia, namely Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism and Christianity have been covered here. Their liberative content, which was hardly discernible, stands exposed for people to make use of it. The generalists and scholars will, it is hoped, find the work instructive and inspiring.
