This lecture explores how integration and indigenisation played a crucial role in the making of the societal outfits of South Asian Islam.

Islam encouraged Muslims to integrate into their dwelling societies, resulting in the development of new cultures cutting across practices of faith in diverse contexts.

The lecture is based on a study analysing popular traditions, textual primary sources, and archaeological and architectural materials for constructing the logical historical possibilities of integrated and indigenised Islam in the wider vernacular settings.

Lecturer: Dr Abbas Panakkal, Director of the International Interfaith Initiative and Director of the Ibn Battuta International Centre for Intercultural Studies
