It describes the diverse political orientations and activisms among Muslim groups in the East Indies and among the Sultans and ‘ulama in Malaya. Mostly uninterested in supporting the caliphate, many Indonesian Muslims appropriated politics, some cooperating with the Dutch and others not, whereas many Malay reformers reformed the society without rejecting the British-sultan modernisation projects. Muslim politics was diverse and multi-focal, and yet, although Indonesian and Malay reformers were aware of wider Islamic preoccupations, their own activism for progress was localised and immediate.
