This work is a demographic study of Indian Muslims and the processes of how they came into being and how they have grown in numbers to form the largest minority in India.
Several factors have contributed to the growth of Muslim population in India. In this study, the author draws pointed attention to one factor which though important has remained neglected . He has documented in some fullness how the continued wars of conquest ensured a constant supply of Hindu prisoners of war who were sold and resold as slaves and who eventually ended up by feeding the Muslim population.
The author asserts that Micro-studies of Muslim communities in larger India including Afghanistan will reveal that very few of their ancestors converted by choice and that an overwhelming majority of them are Hindus in their origin, stock and religion. Such studies will also reveal to the Hindus that the so-called Muslims are mostly their own brothers, the lost tribes of Hinduism, who were separated from their fraternity under very special circumstances.
