Chapter Summary

At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Europeans decided not to wage war on one another and to establish what was called Balance of Power. Traditionalisation of India harked back to the academic engagement with the colonialised region and the reception and selective appropriation of ideas of Indian pietists on the one hand and the obliteration of traces of Indian creativity on the other. Though by 1850 the East India Company had brought virtually the entire Indian subcontinent under its control to form a vast British Indian Empire, this was in no way a straightforward process of 'modernisation'. It is meaningful for an understanding of the events to investigate in some detail how a leading Muslim scholar such as Fadl-e Haqq Khairabadi perceived the colonial encounter and the developments that led to the upheaval of 1857.

Keywords: colonialised region; East India Company; Europeans; Fadl-e Haqq Khairabadi; India
