When one undertakes a study of the Muslims in Manipur, it is immediately apparent that there is a dearth of literature on the subject. It may perhaps be due to the fact that although the Muslims came to Manipur in 1606 AD. they numbered only about a thousand and their number grew only up to 37,197 in 1951. Moreover they were not interested in education till very recently. As a result, there is no authoritative account of the Muslims in Manipur.

Contemporary North East India is a product of British imperialism and Early National Formation of modern India. It is necessary to know how the British empire of the nineteenth century impacted upon the subject people of the North East. The historical experiences of the indigenous peoples therefore, are attempts to respond to two major influences in history: (i) the structural transformation in society and polity in the wake of imperialism and colonialism, and (ii) the response to the relationship in the context of the modern Indian State.¹
