About the internship
We are working on a book that studies the condition of Muslims globally with a special focus on India and compares them with major world communities using multiple socio-economic parameters. It traces its glorious history and the causes of its decline. Identifying progressive trends globally, it builds a convincing case for reform. Its compelling narrative emanates from the unquestionable data it presents. The author's earlier book in the vernacular is nationally available in Urdu with Hindi and Gujarati transliteration and in audio version his series in English on the same subject.

Selected intern's day-to-day responsibilities include working with the writer, our president, and an accomplished writer, a committed social activist, and a former bank CEO in completing this book (no special theological knowledge is expected).
