Psychology and society in Islamic perspective

One of the largest migration of human beings during the present century took place. Muslims migrated out in large numbers from India to Pakistan while Hindus migrated out from both the wings of Pakistan in 1947. This process obliterated the distributional patterns of Muslim population in India. Migration of Muslims was not even from all parts of the country. There were pockets from where their migration was complete, for example East Punjab and Matsya Union of Rajasthan. There were pockets from where the migration of Muslims was marginal, for example, Mewat, Marwar and the southern states. The extent of migration of people was directly proportional to the intensity of rioting before and after the partition. Muslims during the last 50 years have been seeking place in the mainstream of the national life. The direction of their development, economic, social and educational, has been the same as that of the majority community but there has been a time lag in the pace of this development. There has been perceptible difference between the pace of economic, social and educational development of Muslims in North and South India. North bore the brunt of rioting even much after 1947 and Jabalpur, Ahmedabad, Moradabad, Firozabad, Allahabad and many other cities witnessed severe communal clashes, These happenings, no doubt, weakened their economic base because of the destruction of the infrastructure assiduously created.
