This chapter explores how far reaching changes in media and communication technologies are overriding the exclusive Muslim enclave’s isolation by bringing the world that was once out there into the most intimate spaces of their living rooms and bedrooms. It analyses how equanimity of a religious identity is affected by internalization of materialist discourse (creating a marked difference in the ideological attachments to Islamic culture and community between two generations of Muslims) and argues that the Muslim youth’s assimilative tendencies are not to be conceived as romanticized intransigence of the progressive hybrid; and nor are the play with Islamic symbols and the increasing visibility of the veil, the hijab, and the beard to be conceived as rising fundamentalism or Arabization of Islam. It proposes that both of these tendencies embody a struggle and a negotiation with rising aspirations creating by globalizing forces within economic and social context facing a minority and marginalized community.

Keywords:   communication technologies, media, generational gap, community, modernity, Islamization
