In a world where almost all societies are multi-religious and multi-ethnic, we need to study how social cohesion can be achieved in different contexts. In some geographical areas, as in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent, people of different religious belonging have, through the ages, lived side by side, sometimes in harmony and sometimes in dissonance. In other geographical regions, as in Scandinavia, societies have been quite religiously homogeneous but only recently challenged by immigration. In both locations the relations between religious minority and majority are very much on the agenda. In order to discuss the situation for non-Muslims in Muslim majority societies, a consultation was convened with both Muslim and Christian participants from Pakistan, Palestine, Lebanon, and Sweden. Some of the participants work in academic settings, others in faith-based organisations, some in jurisprudence and others with theological issues. Non-Muslims in Muslim Majority Societies is the result of that consultation. The intention of the book is to trigger reflection and further thinking, through papers that discuss issues such as freedom of religion, minority rights, secular and religious legislation, and inter-religious dialogue in Muslim majority societies. Although the articles are presented as 'works in progress' and remain tentative in many of their conclusions, this book is an important contribution to the global debate over religious tolerance and religious pluralism.

Recensioner i media

"With verve and insight, the contributors discuss the concept "minority", and suggest its replacement by the less divisive term "citizenship"; the status of non-Muslims in a future Palestinian state; the legal situation of non-Muslim women in Pakistan; and the "Islamization of laws in Pakistan and its effect on minorities". The book concludes with a look at how "Christians who find themselves under attack from neighbours of the other faiths might react and act". Emphasising "the need for harmonious relations", Christians and Muslims are called to continue "building trust", and "identifying common concerns", so as to achieve "peaceful coexistence". [...] Besides discussing pertinent issues the book provides relevant statistics on the different minority faiths, and faith-based organisations, in Muslim lands. [...] Forthright and informative, this book is an indispensable resource for all those with an interest in inter-faith dialogue." Dr. Simon Ross Valentine in: Church Times, 7. September 2012.
