Islamic Banking and Finance in Malaysia; System, Issues and Challenges: MUHAMMAD RIDWAN AB´AZIZ
Philipp Maximilian Schmidt untersucht die Möglichkeit bzw. Zweckdienlichkeit eines international einheitlichen Lösungsansatzes in Bezug auf Fälle in denen die Ausübung der Meinungsfreiheit mit einer möglichen Verletzung von religiösen Gefühlen einhergeht. Der Schwerpunkt der Arbeit liegt in der Beantwortung folgender Fragestellungen: Inwiefern ist die Meinungs- und Religionsfreiheit in den verschiedenen Rechtsordnungen geschützt? Werden der Meinungsfreiheit zum Schutz von Religionen Grenzen gesetzt? Welche Übereinstimmungen und Unterschiede lassen sich feststellen? Ist ein grenzüberschreitender Konsens möglich? Als Basis zur Beantwortung dieser Fragestellungen dient eine rechtsvergleichende Untersuchung der Rechtsordnungen von Deutschland, Malaysia und den USA. Dr. Philipp Maximilian Schmidt, LL.M. (UNSW) ist Referent im Bundesministerium des Innern.

During the past half century, Christian-Muslim dialogue has turned from a riverlet into a roaring river, from an occasional conference to numerous meetings, oral and written exchanges and round table discussions taking place year round in almost every corner of the globe, from Australia and Malaysia to the Arab world, from Europe to America and Canada, from Africa to Asia. To achieve the same goals and consequently modern trends in Christianity, Catholic Bishops started dialogue in Pakistan in 1986. In this regard, many Christian institutes and organizations became active. There came into being some Muslim Organizations as well. Now Muslims and Christians are at work for dialogue, the latter being more active as they consider dialogue as an essential part of their mission. The Christians in Pakistan are financed and supported by the Western countries so that they may successfully struggle for achieving their objectives. They also aim at safeguarding their rights. As far as Muslims are concerned, they have no effective organization for such activities. That is the reason which urged the researcher to go for research on Muslim-Christian dialogue in the context of Pakistan.
This book highlights the lived experiences of gay Muslims in Malaysia, where Islam is the majority and official religion, and in Britain, where Muslims form a religious minority. By exploring how they negotiate their religious and sexual identities, Shah challenges the notion that Islam is inherently homophobic and that there is an unbridgeable divide between Islam and the West. Shah also gained access to gay Muslim networks and individuals for his in-depth research in both countries, and the book investigates the different ways that they respond to everyday anti-homosexual or anti-Muslim sentiments. Amid the many challenges they confront, the gay Muslims whom Shah encountered find innovative and meaningful ways to integrate Islam and gay identity into their lives. The Making of a Gay Muslim will appeal to students and scholars with an interest in contemporary Islam, religion, gender and sexuality. Shanon Shah is an academic based in London, UK. He lectures in the sociology and anthropology of religion and researches into contemporary Islam and Christianity in Malaysia and Britain.
