Post Anonymously Name Hidden. A persistent anti-American criticism of some Muslims focused on the ways that materialism promotes an immodest sensuality lacking in dignity and depth.
The year , when Malcolm X was assassinated and his autobiography was published, proved to be the beginning of a larger transformation as the Immigration and Naturalization Act for the first time allowed large numbers of Muslims to migrate to the United States to pursue permanent citizenship. The alien obscurity of Islam is an effect of such attitudes, which are culturally enhanced by covert operations claiming secret intelligence, that the state does not reveal for reasons of security, used to justify the incarceration of Muslims abroad into black sites and prisons such as Guantanamo, and to subject Muslim citizens in the United States to systematic profiling.
Such discrimination adds to the many difficulties that Muslim immigrants face as a result of their diasporic displacement from their traditional home cultures. Today Muslim Americans together comprise over 1 percent of Americans — so diverse as to have no national or regional majority — and Americans make up only. Muslims are allied with intersecting affiliations: with their national culture e. The migrations of Muslims to the United States and their growing numbers in the population have created new dynamics of transcultural encounter at a historical moment when American attitudes toward Islam are particularly fraught.
The presence of diverse Muslim citizens serves as a transnational challenge to the provincialities of nativism, a key theme expressed through the emergent field that can be called Muslimerican literature. Muslim American literary works, written by Muslims from across the diversity described earlier, dramatize tensions between adapting to American life and maintaining Muslim traditions and cultural allegiances to other nations.
These are represented on a transcultural spectrum ranging between assimilation to rejection that reflects the transnational experience of being a part of a global umma while living as a religious minority in the United States. Hamid was born in California, returned to Pakistan for his education, then attended Princeton before rejecting a life in the United States for London, and later a family life in his home city of Lahore.
The narration is delivered to a speechless American interlocutor he has detained, who may be an undercover CIA assassin on a corresponding mission to silence him. The novel is exuberantly rife with a cast of diverse immigrants of varied national homelands, sectarian backgrounds, and skin complexions, as well as domestic converts whose beliefs evolved across several generations within different racial communities.
The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf exposes readers to a polycentric view of transnational Islam that transcends the conventions of orthodox ritual.
Islam has provided a horizon of global engagement for Americans since before the independence of the United States. Migrating Muslim cultural practices have circulated through the United States in different and at times contradictory registers, and these lines of connection have been recently multiplied through social media. Islamist groups muster support for jihad through these channels, imams from specific ethnic or national situations extend the reach of their teachings, and believers discover new transnational modes of Muslim belonging that transform their traditional practices.
Since many Muslims come to the United States from different parts of the world, they embody a resource of difference for refiguring a more planetary involvement beyond the conventional boundaries of nations and homelands. This intercultural influence has been expanded through the growing mobilization, popularity, and circulation by Muslims of American cultural forms such as hip-hop and comedy. Transnationalism today, marked by the publication of this volume, represents a transitional practice that registers an emergent planetary ethos whose politics are still limited by the impediments that elide a deeper discrimination of the intercultural flows between established nation-states and beyond their nativist imaginaries.
