(p.171) Chapter Five Avenues of Hope and Optimism
Accumulation by Segregation

Ghazala Jamil

Oxford University Press

This chapter attempts to capture and present an account of social spaces of counter-hegemony. These are actual places and institutions inside or connected to the Muslim localities in Delhi where hope and optimism is carefully being fostered. Also included are ideational spaces that encourage hope among the struggling. These are scraps of memory—real or imaginary that speak to the collective consciousness though they are rarely heard in the din of dominant discourses. I try hard in this chapter not to fall prey to insipid optimism and attempt to capture some of the trials and tribulations of these spaces too.

Keywords:   Counter-hegemony, hope, memory, resistance, reimagination, Muslim education, Muslim professionals, citizenship, alternatives
