The Khoja of Tanzania, Discontinuities of a Postcolonial Religious Identity attempts to reconstruct the development of Khoja religious identity from their arrival to the Swahili coast in the late 18th century until the turn of the 21st century. This multidisciplinary study incorporates Gujarati, Kacchi, Swahili, and Arabic sources to examine the formation of an Afro-Asian Islamic identity (jamati) from their initial Indic caste identity (jñati) towards an emergent Near Eastern imaged Islamic nation (ummati) through four disciplinary approaches: historiography, politics, linguistics, and ethnology. These rapid transitions have produced the profound tensions which have resulted from the willful amnesia of their pre-Islamic Indic civilizational past for an ideological and politicized ‘Islamic’ present. This study aims to document, theorize, and engage this theological transformation of modern Khoja religious identities as expressed through dimensions of power, language, space, and the body.
