Breaking the dichotomy between Western and Islamic discourses on Islam: Visions of coexistence, peace and harmony
The discourses on Islam in Western and Islamic world remain parochial and biased in their outlook. Perceptions and policies which are guided by such biased accounts with a parochial outlook, spiral down the problem and prevent any possibilities of dialogue between the Western and Islamic world. It is imperative to critically engage with literature from both parts of the world to provide a synoptic view of Modern Islam and the issues surrounding it. Sufist discourse, which propagates peace and mutual co-existence provides an alternative vision of Islam which focusses on dialogue and interaction amongst different religious denominations. The Western and Islamic world needs to transcend its parochial outlook for any meaningful dialogue to take place.
