With Diary of a Serial Expat: Being Muslim in India

Over the past few years I’ve contributed to Diary of a Serial Expat, commenting on what life is like in Australia, Pakistan and Iran as an expat Muslim. The other country that I have spent a while living in is, of course, India. But could I explain the Indian expat Muslim experience in one article? Click here to find out!

Delhi's Jama Masjid is one of countless mosques where Shab-e-Qadr will draw thousands.

The brains behind Diary of a Serial Expat, Jameela Deen, is a blogger who I really admire; her work in explaining the cultural and social interactions in the societies in which she has travelled is unique and praiseworthy. So when she invited me to write a similar piece about what it means to be Muslim and expat in India, I was happy to contribute!

Have you ever lived as an expat? Did you try and integrate into the local culture? Comment below!

    Thank you so much Tim for contributing to this series. Indeed it wouldn’t be much of a series without you. It’s always a pleasure to work with you. Now I’m waiting for you to move to a new country so that I can add another ‘expat&Muslim in…’ to my list 🙂 so where next?

      Hahahaha lets see! I have considered Saudi or France… but I know that you have covered both of those – maybe I’ll be coming to you for advice! Thanks as always for the opportunity 🙂
