Towards an Overview of Nursi Studies in India
The impact of Said Nursi and his movement has virtually crossed geographical boundaries and has made inroads in various regions and continents, including South Asia. In this direction, this paper makes an overview of various fields of activities on Nursi Studies in India - a country home to the one of the largest Muslim communities (living as minorities) in the world - ranging from conferences, symposiums, workshops to translation, research, Dersane gatherings, and inclusion of Said Nursi in the curriculum. The paper focuses on the developments of Nursi studies in India that took place in the beginning of the second decade of the twenty-first century. It also analyses how Said Nursi was introduced in India and how Indian people reacted to his message and mission.
