Sanne van der Kaaij tests a number of assumptions about Muslim schools in the context of urban India. Three assumptions prevail: that Muslim schools are madrasas, that Muslim schools teach fundamentalist ideologies which may undermine social cohesion, and that Muslim schools are selected because parents have no other options. Van der Kaaij asks the following questions: What are Muslim schools in Mumbai really like? Who selects them? Why is the number of Muslim schools in Mumbai growing? She then analyzes the schools through the lenses of secularization, privatization and segregation
