Discussion on the book 'Creating a New Medina' by Dr Venkat Dhulipala
Full audio recording

Listen to the full talk (above) by the author, Dr Venkat Dhulipala, where he discusses his book Creating a New Medina: State, Power, Islam and the Quest for Pakistan in Late Colonial North India.

The book examines how the idea of Pakistan was first articulated - not as a vague idea that serendipitously emerged as a nation-state, but as a sovereign Islamic State, referred to by some as 'a new Medina'.

The views shared belong to individual faculty and researchers and do not represent an institutional stance on the issue.
