Reformist Voices of ISLAM Mediating ISLAM and Modernity by Shireen T Hunter pdf free download. During the last three decades, Western observers and analysts of the Muslim world have been preoccupied mainly with the rise of a variety of radical interpretations of
Islam and with groups promoting them. This preoccupation has been understandablein light of threats that the followers of these extremist readings of Islam have posed to the stability of their own countries, the negative impact on sensitive regions such
as the Middle East and the Persian Gulf, and the intensely anti-Western sentiments that they cultivate.

The tragic events of September 11, 2001, followed by other acts of terror in Europe and Asia, clearly showed the depth of these extremists’ animosity toward the West, their geographic reach, and their lack of scruples in targeting innocent civilians, including many Muslims. In addition to extremist discourse, in recent decades the Muslim world has also witnessed the rise and spread of ultra-conservative and literalist readings of the Qur’an and practices that flow from such readings.

The behavior of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan was the most vivid actualization of this discourse. But however damaging the emergence of this discourse and its proponents has been both for the Muslim world and the West, it is important to recognize that they do not represent the entire spectrum of intellectual space in the Muslim world. On the contrary, during the past fifteen years a robust reformist discourse has emerged in many Muslim countries and among Muslims living elsewhere.

This discourse offers a reading of Islam based on a more rationalist and contextualist approach, which, if broadly adopted in the Muslim world, could enable Muslims to reconcile the requirements of building modern and vibrant societies with democratic and law-based political systems. This would entail both respect for the basic rights of all human beings and retention of Muslims’ cultural and spiritual heritage. It would also enable Muslims to enter into constructive relationships with other cultures and make a significant contribution to ongoing debates regarding serious challenges facing humanity that require collaboration among all countries and peoples for them to be met successfully.
