New. In 1857 uprisings against the British resulted in the last remnants of the Mughal Empire being terminated and Muslim power being both symbolically and substantially finished. One important part of Muslim History in South Asia was over. Muslims responded to the challenge of the technologically and militarily superior West in one of two ways. Some accepted Western Education and adopted the Western way of life; others started defining Politics in Religious idiom, insisting that Islam offered a complete way of life distinct from that offered by the Colonial powers and their modern ideas. However, what is significant is that the theme of Islamic humanism was never lost in South Asia: it resonated in the universalist Dreams of Syed Jamaluddtn Afghani, and later in the writings and politics of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. Until the establishment of British rule, traditional Islamic scholarship had focused on the divine message, Philosophy and reasoning, and jurisprudence. With notable exceptions, Muslims had paid Little attention to Political and economic theory. Printed Pages: 294
