I find joy studying diverse manifestations of religion-based socio-political activism, especially in Muslim majority societies. My forthcoming book examines the politics of Muslim spiritual trainers, commonly known as Pirs, in contemporary Bangladesh. My book Ideaslised Islamic Past (2018) examines the social role of Imams – congregational prayer leaders – in contemporary Bangladesh society. I am also eager to explore the threads of homegrown / Bangladeshi political ideas and ideologies. My book Laloner Rajniti (2019) is a political reading of well-known mystic personality Lalon’s poetic discourses. Currently I am engrossed in two research projects: first, self-assessment of the more orthodox Muslims in contemporary Bangladesh; and the second, the use of violence as a tool of governance.Show less
