Chapter Summary

Continuity in educational policy since the 1830s hints at how little else to do with colonial policy actually changed with the onset of 'direct rule'. Rahman and Robinson agree that apart from European thought and institutions, the 'Traditionalist' movements identified in this book as permutations of a 'new' Sober Path were 'directly bequeathed' to the 'Western' educated Muslims of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Ahmad Khan's career confirms that he was exposed to European ideas and colonial institutions at a very young age. Much the same conclusion can be drawn from Mirza Ghulam Ahmad's writings, though whereas Ahmad Khan put his eggs in the philosophical basket of Reason, Ghulam Ahmad tapped the mystical well of Intuition. Muhammad Iqbal neither founded a college, like Ahmad Khan, nor a sect like Ghulam Ahmad.
