Non-notable quotes[edit]

  • “A dislike for Hinduised garments was created and people began to dress themselves according to the specifications of the Shari‘at. Bracelets got removed from the arms and rings from the ears of men…”
    • Shail Mayaram, Resisting Regimes: Myth, Memory and the Shaping of a Muslim Identity, OUP, Delhi, 1997, p.226 (She quotes from Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi, Life and Mission of Maulana Mohammad Ilyas, Lucknow, 1983, p. 40.)
  • …The beneficiary of the Khilafat movement was not only Mr. Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. Maulana Maududi, Allama Inayatullah Mashriqi (the founder of the Khaksar movement), and Maulana Ilyas (the founder of the Tablighi Jamaat) also benefited from the emotionally charged religious environment of Indian Islam in the late 1920s. The emergence of these new movements unleashed religious and political forces that had the combined effect of directing the Muslim position on a parallel course vis-à-vis Hindus and dividing the two religious communities - a division which ultimately culminated in the creation of the Muslim state of Pakistan. …Although Maulana Ilyas kept himself completely aloof from politics… he never opposed Islamic groups actively engaged in politics… Maulana Ilyas was of the view that the Tabligh movement and politically oriented Islamic groups although operating in different spheres, were complimenting each other’s work. Hence there should be no competition and rivalry among them. Since the beginning of Muslim rule in India, the ulama had remained permanently allied to an elite north Indian Muslim culture, hence the orthodox forms of Islam had not penetrated deep into the daily lives of the Muslim masses, who continued to cherish the customs and practices they had inherited from their Hindu past. Since the nineteenth century Mujahideen movement of Sayyid Alimad Shaheed (1786-1831) and the Faraizi movement of Haji Shariatullah, the Tabligh movement is the most important attempt to bridge the gap between orthodox Islam and the popular syncretie religious practices that are prevalent among the Muslim masses…

I see nothing wrong with the first quote, except that it was missing some context. I have added some context to the quote. I agree that the second quote was too long and not very readable, and should either be split or shortened. I have made it shorter. The article is also very short and benefits from having quotes from more than just one source. --Luke Jedi Skywalker (talk) 09:48, 11 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
