Description
Summary:According to the author, in Malaysia secularization is an uneven process, bifurcating religious practices into an Islamic and non-Islamic field. The former is linked to international Islamic institutions. The latter lacks currency in the political structure and is freer to innovate with less government interference. He examines the market implications of religious asymmetry in this country. The author points out that for the non-Muslimes, the apolitical nature of their religions has predisposed them to more experimentation and innovation than the Muslims. (DÜI-Sen)
