This book examines media representations of Indian Muslims in the wake of global Islamic radicalism and its repercussions. It analyses the reach of jihadi pan-Islamism in the popular Indian Muslim consciousness and how the community copes with media distortions of a nuanced issue. Exploring the politics of representation and the subsequent stereotyping of Muslims by the media, this work contextualizes the ongoing debates on the media's accountability and its commercialization.
