Muslim Pilgrimage in the Modern World

In this article, the author challenges the stereotypical definition of pilgrimage as a journey to a shrine or place of religious importance and shows how Dawoodi Bohras make a pilgrimage to wherever their spiritual leader chooses to deliver his Muharram sermons. Drawing on his ethnography among this religious group, he elucidates how the rituals around a yearly religious ritual shaped the annual pilgrimage of an Indian religious group.
