2 days National Seminar on on The Evolution of Composite Culture in Medieval India 2018
Department of History, Faculty of Social Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi is organizing a two-day National Seminar on “The Evolution of Composite Culture in Medieval India” on 14th and 15th of September, 2018.
The concept of cultural pluralism implies religious tolerance and respect to all religions. The historian of Sultanate period Ziauddin Barani keeping such a thing in mind made distinctions between a state based on din dari which proved impossible in India, and Jahandari (dunyadari), which is based on moderate Islam emphasising coexistence with other communities, which was actually the principle followed during the Sultanate period.
The famous historian Amir Khusrau considered India his watan and glorified in its flora, fauna, climate, science and learning. The rise of new sections of society like artisans, traders, and middle administrative elements are also reflected in the emergence of Bhakti movement which headed by Kabir, Raidas, Nanak, Tulsidas and others. These saints stood for human equality, opposed caste based hierarchical society and emphasised the findamental unity of all religions, especially Hinduism and Islam.
