From Fatwa To Jihad

by Kenan Malik, From Fatwa To Jihad Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download From Fatwa To Jihad books, The # 1 international bestseller A Finalist for the George Orwell Book Prize “It would be absurd to think that a book can cause riots,” Salman Rushdie asserted just months before the publication of his novel The Satanic Verses. But that’s exactly what eventually happened. In England, protests started just months after the book’s publication, with Muslim protestors, mainly from immigrant backgrounds, coming by the thousands from the outer suburbs of London and from England’s old industrial centers—places like Bradford, Bolton, and Macclesfield—to denounce Rushdie’s novel as blasphemous and to burn it. In February of 1988, the protests spread to Pakistan, where riots broke out, killing five. That same month, Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini called for Rushdie’s assassination, and for the killing of anyone involved with the book’s publication. It was this frightening chain of events, Kenan Malik argues in his enlightened personal and political account of the period, that transformed the relationship between Islam and the West: From then on, Islam was a domestic issue for residents of Europe and the United States, a matter of terror and geopolitics that was no longer geographically constrained to the Middle East and South Asia. Malik investigates the communities from which the anti-Rushdie activists emerged, showing the subtleties of immigrant life in 1980s England. He depicts the growth of the anti-racist and Asian youth movements, and shows how young Britons went from supporting these progressive movements to embracing a conservative strain of Islam. Malik also controversially tackles England’s peculiar strain of “multiculturalism,” arguing that policymakers there failed to integrate Muslim immigrants, which many politicians saw as incompatible with their own “Western values.” It was a perception that led many to appeal to Muslims not as citizens, but as people whose primary loyalty was to their faith and who could be engaged only by their “community leaders.” It was a also policy that encouraged Muslims to view themselves as semi-detached citizens—and that inevitably played into the hands of radical Islamists. Twenty years later, the questions raised by the Rushdie affair—Islam’s relationship to the West, the meaning of multiculturalism, the limits of tolerance in a liberal society—have become the defining issues of our time.

Fiction After The Fatwa

by Madelena Gonzalez, Fiction After The Fatwa Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fiction After The Fatwa books, Fiction after the Fatwa: Salman Rushdie and the Charm of Catastrophe proposes for the first time an examination of what Rushdie has achieved as a writer since the fourteenth of February 1989, the date of the fatwa. This study argues that his constant questioning of fictional form and the language used to articulate it have opened up new opportunities and further possibilities for writing in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Through close readings and intensive textual analysis, arranged chronologically, Fiction after the Fatwa provides a thought-provoking reflection on the writer's achievements over the last thirteen years. Aimed principally at academics and students, but also of interest to the general reader, it engages with the specific nature of the post-fatwa fiction as it moves from the fairy-tale world of Haroun and the Sea of Stories to the heartbreaking post-realism of Fury.

Die einzigen Überlebenden dieses Terroranschlags sind Gibril Farishta und Saladin Chamcha, zwei indische Schauspieler, die buchstäblich vom Himmel fallen und wie durch ein Wunder unversehrt bleiben. Doch nach dem Absturz gehen seltsame Dinge mit ihnen vor: Der Muslim Gibril zeigt immer mehr Ähnlichkeit mit dem Erzengel Gabriel, während sich Saladin, der stets seine Herkunft verleugnete, zu einem Abbild des Teufels entwickelt. Doch das ist erst der Beginn einer überwältigenden Odysee zwischen Gut und Böse, zwischen Fantasie und Realität.

Fatwa

by Mehdi Mozaffari, Fatwa Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Fatwa books, The Islamic term "fatwa" became known in the West after Ayatollah Khomeini's death sentence in 1989 on Salman Rushdie, the author of 'The Satanic Verses'. Mehdi Mozaffari reviews the history of the fatwa from its origins and its evolution to the present day. He looks at the general use of fatwa in relation to Islamic rules and traces the evolution of shi'ite Islam from a pacifist and quietist movement into a militant force. In comparing Shi'a violence before and after the Islamic revolution, it can be seen that Rushdie was not the only writer to receive a fatwa. It also emerges from this study that the revolutionary violence was also effected by the economic interests of a social group, the Bazar -- a controversial point of view in contrast to the widely held belief that it was a religious revolution only.

Migration And Literature

by Søren Frank, Migration And Literature Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Migration And Literature books, We live in an age of migration and more and more authors have migrant backgrounds. Migration and Literature offers a thorough and thought provoking examination of the thematic and formal role of migration in four contemporary and canonized novelists, Günter Grass, Milan Kundera, Salman Rushdie, and Jan Kjærstad. This book examines how these novelists reflect, problematize, and “resolve” the problems set by the migratory world and analyzes how the novels employ discursive strategies which emphasize their migratory and homeless form.
