This study concludes by highlighting the primacy of contexts in shaping and understanding Tadhana and SNI projects. It also underscores the agency and power of the scholars as well as the intimate partnership between them and those who embody political power. It suggests the need to push the logic of power/knowledge to its conclusion as failure to do so breeds the contradictions that hamper the realization of the progressive vision. It also suggests the need to re-orient progressive scholarship by going beyond the ‘liberal view’ that dichotomizes politics and scholarship, and to serve as a meta-analytic monitoring device to render transparent power-knowledge interactions. The idea is to help common people make informed decisions and empower them to contribute to attaining a more peaceful, equal, compassionate, and prosperous society.
