This thesis aims to study Muhammad Iqbal's socio-political discourse, primarily his critique of the ideology of nationalism and his attempts to chart a path for the development of the 'nation' free from the centralising and homogenising tendencies of the modern state-structure. Iqbal's interaction with the ideology of nationalism, widely promoted as the embodiment of political modernity, is used in this thesis as a foil to a broader study into the interface between Muslim intellectuals and western socio-political thought in India circa 1857-1940. Instead of speaking in terms of a fixed Islamic political tradition, this study emphasises the diversity and richness of Muslim political discourse.
