The term Jihad has nothing to do with "terror" in Islam. Jihad in Islam is simply an honest, pious, and sincere effort. Here the expression "Jihadi Terrorism" is a borrowed one, from what is popularly said, to mean what is popularly meant to address a contemporary problem. The book makes an attempt to construct the Epistemology of Terrorism through a historical analysis of ninety years of India, from 1857 to 1940 through the writings and speeches of intellectuals with separatist ideas, mostly Muslim intellectuals. The general western, epistemology, which focuses more on differences may result in separatism. This is contrasted against India epistemology of co-existence. This book begins the Constructing Indian Epistemology Series, as the first book.
