"Pakistan is confronted with the crisis of national identity ever since its
inception as an independent state in 1947. The major communities of
Pakistan have been asserting for their identity and autonomy, there by
questioning the very contours of the Pakistani state : the two nation
theory. The Mohajir community though supported the idea of Pakistan, have
been struggling for their identity and status. Why do they feel isolated?
Why is that the major ethno-cultural groups of Pakistan are in a sharp
conflict with the state to day? What have been the implications of the
Mohajir movement? What are the major challenges faced by Mohajirs?
The present study is an attempt to understand the causes, dynamics and
implications of the Mohajir movement in Pakistan. It analyses the rise of
Mohajir Quami Movement and its impact on the Pakistani society and polity.
It can be said that the book will prove to be an important addition to the
contemporary studies on Pakistan. One may also hope that the book will be
useful to the scholars and students of Pakistani studies and also for the
general readers interested in understanding the challenges of the
contemporary Pakistani society."
