Tutor Marked Assignment

Course Code: MPSE-004

Assignment Code: ASST/TMA/2021-22

Marks: 100

Answer any five questions in about 500 words each. Attempt at least two questions from each section. Each question carries 20 marks.


1. Discuss the nature of state and sovereignty in medieval India.

The nature of State in Medieval India has been a subject of great controversy amongst the scholar. Scholars like Dr. R.P. Ashraf, Dr. Ishwari Prasad, Prof. A.L. Srivastava, etc. hold that the Muslim state in Medieval India was theocracy. For example Dr. R.P. Tripathi says, “All the institutions that the Muslims either evolved or adopted were intended to sub-serve the law.”

Similarly Dr. Ishwari Parsad says that like other Muslim states, the state in Medieval India was a theocracy. The king was both Caesar as well as Pope. But, his authority was restricted by the principles of Shariat. His rule was based on religion and the Ulemas predomi­nated the State.

However, certain other writers like Dr. I.H. Qureshi holds, “The supremacy of the shar” has misled some into thinking that the Sultanate was a theocracy. The essential feature of a theocracy— the rule of an ordained priesthood—is however, missing in the orga­nisation of Muslim state; the jurists are laymen who claim no sacer­dotal immunity from error. Gibb is right in calling the Islamic policy theocentric. Even Mohammad Habib says, “It (Muslim state in India) was not a theocratic state in any sense of the word” and that “its foundation was, nevertheless, non-religious and secular.”

In view of the two conflicting views offered by the scholars regarding the nature of the state in Medieval India, it becomes imperative to examine this issue more thoroughly. First of all, we must try to find out what is meant by theocracy. Only then we will be able to arrive at some conclusion regarding the nature of state in Medieval India.

The term theocracy is derived from the Greek word theos, meaning God. Therefore, a theocratic state is one which is governed by God or sacerdotal class.

In the first place, we can agree with Dr. Qureshi that there was no ordained or hereditary priesthood in Medieval India which is the essential feature of a theocracy. The Jurists were laymen who claimed no sacerdotal immunity from error and certain laymen like lbn Battuta acted as Qazi of Delhi during Muhammad bin Tughlaq.

However, the appointment of lbn Battuta was a unique case. It cannot be denied that mostly the Jurists were taken from class of Ulemas.

These Ulemas were orthodox and wielded great influence with the Sultan. Even Dr. Yusuf Husain has testified that these Ulemas were orthodox and were given education in Madrasas. This education had a distinct religious voice. The Jurists and advisers of the Sultans and kings were appointed from amongst these Ulemas and they interpreted the Shara (Islamic law).

According to lbn Hasan, “The protection of Shariat has two aspects: The propagation of the knowledge of Shara and its enforcement as law within the state The one implies the mainte­nance of a class of scholars devoted to the study, the teaching and the propagation of that knowledge, and the other the appointment of one Prom those scholars…as an adviser to the king in ail acts of state. The scholars devoted to that knowledge are called Ulema and the one selected from among them is termed Shaikh-ul-Islam”

2. Write an essay on nationalism and colonial modernity.

3. Examine the modes of reformist thought in early 19th century India.

4. Elaborate upon the ideas of Bankimchandra Chattopadhyaya on nationalism.

5. Describe the importance of the extremist ideology in the nationalist movement.
