The Challenges of Muslims’ Religious Identity in Contemporary Western Societies
Yaghoob Foroutan
Abstract:   (12512 Views)

This article explains the consequences of the Islamic identity in the Western societies from a sociological perspective. The extensive literature reviewed in this paper supports the fact that Muslims in the western societies have been substantially affected by such recent events as the 9/11 in the US and 7/7 in the UK. This particularly applies to Muslim women due to their Islamic dress codes. Using logistic regression analysis and the theory of discrimination associated with cultural and religious identity, it also examines whether and how significantly the status of Muslims in the western contexts is associated with their religious identity. Generally speaking, the results indicate the key pattern that those with the Islamic dress codes are more likely to be excluded in the West. 

Keywords: Religious identity, Islamic dress codes, discrimination and Inequality, Western society
