Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the impact of linking injury, blasphemy, religious pain, and Muslim identity together. It considers two academic representations of the varieties of Muslim hurt. One is a consideration of Muslim responses to the Rushdie affair and another to the controversy surrounding the Danish cartoons. Both are concerned with the specificity of Muslim pain in response to insults to the Prophet of Islam.

Keywords:   Muslim identity, Islam, injury, blasphemy, religious pain, Salman Rushdie, Danish cartoons
