South Asians in the Post-9/11 United States

Desis Divided

Sangay K. Mishra

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter 3 uses the case of racial targeting of South Asians—Hindus, Muslims, and Sikhs—in the post-9/11 period and their reactions to the targeting to illustrate the importance of religion in shaping the fractured political response to intensified discrimination. The religious identity not only shaped and calibrated the racial targeting but also framed the responses of the South Asian groups and worked against broader panethnic solidarity in opposition to racial hostility.

Keywords:   Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, racial targeting, September 11 2001, religious identity, panethnic solidarity
