Pan-Islamism (Classic Reprint) free pdf Excerpt from Pan-Islamism We often speak - rather light-heartedly - of the British Empire as, amongst other things, the greatest Mahomedan power in the world, and unquestionably no sovereign counts amongst his subjects so many millions of Mahomedans as King Edward. The total number of Mahomedans in the world is approximately estimated at some 250,000,000. Of these barely one-tenth own direct allegiance to the Sultan of Turkey, whereas there are no less than sixty-two millions within the frontiers of our Indian Empire, and millions more are to be found scattered about our possessions and protectorates in Malaya, and in Eastern, Central, and Western Africa, whilst in Egypt and the Sudan we have assumed responsibility for another twelve million followers of the Prophet. This is unquestionably a factor of the very greatest importance in considering the interests and the future of the British Empire, for in the East religion is still a force more potent than any other- and in this, as in many other respects, the East stands much where Europe stood in the Middle Ages. Both in Egypt and in India we have recently had reminders - which have come as a surprise to many of us - that Islam especially still represents an elemental force with which British statesmanship may have seriously to reckon. From this point of view I thought it might be of some interest to collect a few notes concerning the history and growth of the movement which is now known as Pan-Islamism, in connection more particularly with its influence upon India. It is just thirty years since the present Sulan Abdul Hamid came to the throne of Turkey. His Empire then seemed to be on the point of dissolution. His treasury was bankrupt. His Christian provinces were in revolt. Within two years a victorious Russian army was encamped at the gates of his capital. He himself was deemed to be a mere puppet in the hands of the powerful bureaucratic oligarchy which, after a succession of Palace conspiracies, had placed him upon the throne.
