Representing Islam in Secular Politics

Representing Islam in Secular Politics

The Ideologies and Leaders of the Nationalist Action, the National View, and the Justice and Development Parties

(p.159) Chapter Four Representing Islam in Secular Politics
Beyond Sacred and Secular
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines how the Nationalist Action Party, the National View Party, and the Justice and Development Party in Turkey approach the hegemonic secular nationalism. It explains that these religious political parties paint their ideal polities in different shades of Islam as they try to question and complement Kemalism, and highlights the differences in their treatment of the state and the unity of the national community. The chapter also argues that the sacralization of the state and the nation has made it initially easier for sacralizer religious parties to accept a hegemonic ideology.

Keywords:   religious political parties, Israel, National Action Party, National View Party, Justice and Development, secular nationalism, Kemalism, national community, hegemonic ideology
