Review quote

"The Muslim Heritage of Bengal is a multidimensional work covering aspects of the Muslim history, culture and heritage of Bengal from the early thirteenth century to the modern times. I welcome this invaluable work. The book consists of forty-two biographies of eminent Muslims of Bengal beginning with Muhammad Bakhtiyar Khalji, the Muslim conqueror of Bengal, and ends with Begum Rokeya, an influential educationalist of Bengal during the early twentieth century. I am sure this book shall add to the vista of knowledge in the field of Muslim history and heritage of Bengal. I recommend this work." -- Dr A. K. M. Yaqub Ali, Professor Emeritus, Islamic History & Culture, University of Rajshahi and renowned historian of Bangladesh. "The Muslim Heritage of Bengal is a fascinating, inspiring book written by a young British writer. I have read this book and found it to be very valuable, a real eye-opener. This book provides glimpses of Bengal's Muslim history from the beginning of the 13th century to more recent events during the early part of the 20th century. Khan's book provides invaluable information which will inspire present and future generations regarding the Muslim history, culture and heritage of Bengal. Highly recommended reading for Muslims and non-Muslims, young and old alike." -- Dr M. Abdul Jabbar Beg, Formerly Professor of Islamic History & Civilization at National University of Malaysia and co-author of A Journey through Islamic History: A Timeline of Key Events.
