The Normative Non-Citizens of the Global Urban

(p.95) Chapter Three Muslims in Delhi
Accumulation by Segregation

Ghazala Jamil

Oxford University Press

Delhi is conceived as part of the global urban where the global processes are manifested in local. Simultaneously, the ‘local’ itself becomes mired in contradictory processes of urban governance and development—devaluing citizenship. As citizenship becomes a function of power for contestation and capacity for claim-making the governance mechanisms become more and more privy to elites and corporate lobbying, and the major task of the state becomes that of a manager of inequalities. In such a situation the Muslims find themselves to experiencing an acute deficit in citizenship. Because of their discursive subalternity they are rendered incapable of expressing any concerns that relate to their other identities such as being part of unorganized workforce in the country. This discussion is placed within the realm of state power and governmentality directing a closer examination of how these manifest in a segregated locality of Muslims.
