Muslim – non-Muslim marriages in the UK: perspectives from Muslim women experiencing marriage to non-MuslimsElmali, Ayse (2019-07)Despite the increased number of interreligiously married Muslim women, especially in Western countries, the phenomenon remains overlooked. This research aims to highlight interreligiously married Muslim women’s untold stories and to examine their experiences of being part of an interfaith marriage. The research illustrates that Muslim women’s interfaith marriages are seen as prohibited and unconventional by many Muslim scholars and communities, and they view this prohibition as a subject that is closed for discussion due to the traditional scholarly consensus supporting it. However, some contemporary Muslim scholars have started to discuss Muslim women’s interfaith marriages and argue that the rule and consensus regarding these unions should be re-evaluated considering the ways in which society and gender roles in today’s marriages are changing. Using qualitative interviews with intermarried Muslim women, this study examines the impact of the families on Muslim women’s decision to marry a non-Muslim, how they deal with the religious differences in the family and the impact the interfaith union has upon their religiosity. The research reveals that ‘love’ is the main reason behind the Muslim women’s decision of interfaith marriage. The findings also indicate that while interfaith marriage does not directly impact Muslim women’s religiosity, community pressure and negative perceptions of their marriages have curtailed Muslim women and their children’s relationship with the Muslim community.
Framing Muslims in the “War on Terror”: Representations of Ideological Violence by Muslim versus Non-Muslim Perpetrators in Canadian National News MediaAzeezah Kanji (MDPI AG, 2018-09-01)This study compared representations of ideological violence by Muslim versus non-Muslim perpetrators in Canadian national news media (the Globe and Mail, National Post, and CBC). Both quantitative and qualitative disparities were examined. Acts of Muslim violence received 1.5 times more coverage, on average, than non-Muslim ones, and thwarted Muslim plots received five times more coverage. Muslim incidents were more likely to be labelled &ldquo;terrorism&rdquo; and linked to other episodes of violence, and Muslim perpetrators were more likely to be labelled by their religious and ethno-racial identities. These patterns in representation serve to stabilise the racial formations of the Canadian national security state in the &ldquo;war on terror&rdquo;.
Really Muslim; Really Dutch Muslim omen Constructing a public Dutch Muslim identityMidden, E.; Vader, S.S. (2011-07-29)Muslim women in the Netherlands are often represented as passive victims of their own culture. This image is often incompatible with how Muslim women perceive their own identity. Identity politics can be used by these women to construct a public identity that moves beyond the stereotypical image of Muslim women as victims. Since identity politics easily falls into essentialist notions of identity, an identity politics based on intersectionality and hybridity is suggested as a useful tool for the creation of a Dutch Muslim identity.
