In this book, Yulia Egorova explores how South Asian Jews and Muslims relate to each other outside of a Western and Christian context, and reveals that despite some important differences, the relationship is still intrinsically connected to global narratives about Jews and Muslims. She also shows how the Hindu right have turned the South Asian Jewish experience into a rhetorical tool to deny the existence of discrimination against religious minorities, and how this ostensible celebration of Jewishness masks both anti-Muslim and anti-Jewish prejudice. Jews and Muslims in South Asia is a fascinating new contribution to the academic discussion of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and their overlapping histories.
