    Abstract:
    Identity is a cultural construction. Literary genres also take part in this process. In novel, characters' particular traits are selected and their actions' interpreted by the writer in their cultural context. Even the historical novel is no exception. While presenting the historical persons the selection and interpretation are derived from contemporary culture. This article analyses Abdul Haleem Sharar's Meena Bazar in constructionist perspective. It takes account of the characterization and representations in constructing communal identity in Sharar's text.
