(p.88) 4 Un/settled Relations
Jews and Muslims in South Asia

Yulia Egorova

Oxford University Press

The chapter reflects on the trope of Jewish-Muslim relations by exploring the daily interactions between members of the two communities in India and Pakistan and the mutual attitudes and perceptions that they demonstrate. The discussion highlights the processual and context-dependent nature of the multiple and varied interactions that one might describe under the rubric of Jewish-Muslim relations and argues that the latter can be seen as denoting two overlapping sets of meanings, serving both as an umbrella term for the multiple and diverse (rather than in any way systematic) encounters between Jews and Muslims and, as a Western trope conveying a projection of the non-Western other.
