Return to Home

Devji jktFaisal Devji, author of Landscapes of the Jihad: Militancy, Morality, Modernity (2005), has written an article for openDemocracy on recent efforts by liberal Muslim religious and intellectual leaders to promote the cause of dialogue and debate with Christians on a global scale, in the face of opposition by more militant Muslims. These efforts, Devji finds, are “a case-study in both the state of religious thinking and the democratization of sovereignty in the global arena.”
