About This Book

These papers were given at the 2003 Ulama Convention of PERGAS (the Association of Singapore Islamic scholars and Religious Teachers) which explored immediate and continuing issues of Islam and moderation in the context of the Muslim community in Singapore. The short, clearly set out expositions draw on the thinking of local and international Islamic scholars. Among the many issues addressed are the perspectives of non-Muslims and of the Singapore Government, Muslim responses to the perspectives of others, fundamentalism, radicalism, pluralism and misperceptions of jihad. A proposed Charter of Moderation in Religious Practice is outlined. Relevant Statements and documents are in the Appendix.
