This chapter focuses on the cultural background of Abdus Salam. Salam's assimilation into Western, and particularly British, life was so complete that his background was little understood by his European colleagues. For most of those who called him ‘Abdus’, it remained unknown and irrelevant. As an Ahmadi Muslim in British India, Salam inherited a special demographic and cultural legacy, which guided his destiny.

Keywords:   Abdus Salam, India, Pakistan, Ahmadi Muslim
