Routledge, London, UK, pp. 349-359. ISBN 9781138234147, e-ISBN 9781315307831. [Book Section] (doi:10.4324/9781315307831-29)


The postsecular has been conceptualized, both in general terms and also in relation to particular countries and religious groups, as a historical shift in which religion is returning from the margins and the shadows to the centre ground of public life (Habermas 2008). From the perspective of religious groups, minorities in particular, narratives of the return of religion are problematic. We develop this argument with reference to British Muslims of Pakistani heritage, and Polish Muslims with mixed heritage.
