Blogging the Islamic Anglosphere

Several bloggers have come together to produce a monthly edition of blogs on politics, culture, religion and life by Muslims living in the ‘West’, with contributions coming from North America, the UK and Australia. The second edition has just come out in time for the last ten days of Ramadan. Entitled the Carnival of Islam in the West, all those who sign up come to create a continuous meta-blog, which placed on an RSS feed — say onto a personalised Google homepage — provides a subaltern complement, sometimes an antidote, to the daily deluge of ‘bad news’ about Muslim folk. The range of views is broad — from traditionalist to reformist — but the quality of the writing is generally excellent, often being on a par with or even better than anything which can be found in the Muslim print media.
