Muslim Modernity in Postcolonial Nigeria by Ousmane Kane pdf free download. To outline the argument of this book, a personal note will be much in order. As a discussant in a panel on Islam in Africa convened by David Robinson at the 1995 meeting of the African Studies Association of North America held in Orlando, Florida, I was invited to comment on contemporary West African Islamic movements. With regard to Islamic movements of “reform”2 I argued that in postcolonial West Africa, they attempted to promote modernity. At the end of the presentation, a scholar who I presume is a non-Muslim from Nigeria, requested the floor for comments. As it turned out, she was very
shocked by my statement linking Islamic reformers to modernity.

What words she used to voice her disagreement, I do not remember exactly, but they were very much like: “How dare you say that members of the Society for the Removal of Innovation and Reinstatement of Tradition (Yan Izala in Hausa)3 promote modernity? They pay no respect to the Nigerian national anthem. They burn the Nigerian flag. They attack women who dress in a western fashion, etc.”
