Islamic Tolerance & Justice :
'Non-Muslims under Muslim Rule,'
[A5] Hardback - 280 pages,
by Dr. Sheikh Mohd. Iqbal,
by Adam Publishers, India.
The present Book grew from Dr. Iqbal's addresses to explain how the Muslim rulers in the past treated the Jews, Christians and Hindus in a spirit of justice and realism.
Too significant a part is the prolegomena of the book which stresses the need to enforce Islamic teachings. Without this, neither the Muslims can form themselves into a judicious and a healthy society, nor can they deliver the world from its present turmoil.
The author emphatically explains the common view that in the 'Message of Islam' lies the effective remedy to the ills of mankind.
