One of the most ignored topics in the history of World War II has been Muslim involvement directly or indirectly. When usually discussed, it’s traditionally about an Alim who met with Hitler and propagated anti-Semitic policies across the Arab World. The discussion is a means to justify the Israeli occupation of Palestine and modern anti-Islamic sentiment.
We forget the rest of those who fought and were martyred in the war, those Muslims who even saved Jews during the Holocaust, those who were deported, sent to concentration camps and killed in terror raids. We forget the atrocities of the Bengal Famine in which the war was a major cause and how Muslims were more concerned about freedom from colonialism than European ideologies.
This book is an attempt to briefly document the state of the Muslim World during the bloodiest war in history. Also included are appendices regarding Zionism and the creation of Israel.
