Abstract [en]

This is a psychobiographical study of a Muslim advocate of nonviolence: Wahiduddin Khan. The study is based on seven semi-structured interviews, several of Khan’s speeches, and a number of his books. The material was subjected to narrative analysis, informed by McAdams’ and Polkinghorne’s methodological guidelines. The theoretical framework of the analysis is life story theory of identity. The purpose of the study is to examine the relation between Khan’s identity, ideology and culture. The results of the study showed that his identity and ideology evolved over time, and that they are deeply embedded in Indian culture and society.
