INTRODUCTION: Dr Nahid Afrose Kabir is a scholar on the subject of modern Muslim affairs. Nahid A. Kabir has conducted extensive research on Muslims in Australia, the UK and USA. Nahid observes that Muslim migration has taken place in these countries for several centuries but after the September 11 Twin Towers attacks, Muslims have become viewed as "the Other". In her first book, Muslims in Australia, Nahid Kabir examined the basis of such a view from an historical perspective. She discussed how the actions of militant Islamic groups have impacted upon Muslims in general in Western society. In her second book, Young British Muslims, Nahid Kabir noted that in the aftermath of the 7/7 London bombings, some young Muslims have been facing challenges in their everyday lives. Under such circumstances, Nahid examined how these young Muslims define their identity and their sense of "Britishness". Nahid emphasised the value of biculturalism which she considers would help them integrate successfully in British society. In her third book, Young American Muslims: Dynamics of Identity, Nahid Kabir examined how young Muslim Americans are placed within "their American Dream".

CURRENT PROJECT: Nahid A. Kabir's current research project is titled, "Muslims in India: Young Muslims' Identity in a Religiously Diverse Society". Muslims are a significant minority in India. The project addresses the root causes of the rifts between Muslim and non-Muslim communities in India with a social-cultural focus. Through empirical research this project engages young Muslims, both male and female, 15 years and over and seeks to understand the ways young Muslims in India make sense of their identities in their social and cultural contexts. It investigates the role of education, culture, religion and community in their identity construction. It determines the reason why young Indian Muslims do not have a record of home-grown terrorism (unlike the 7/7 London bombers). It identifies ways to promote inclusion and social cohesion. A significant part of this study will be an investigation of the life stories of Muslim women through the lenses of identity, biculturalism and social cohesion. The proposed study is based on interviews of young Muslims from three cites of India. The ultimate aim of this qualitative study is to target audience –academia and policy makers (government officials, non-government officials, community leaders, eminent thinkers, media officials) through publications and presentations in specific conferences that would lead to positive impact on the lives of the Muslim minorities in India.
