Hindu and Islamic Transnational Religious Movements

There has been a phenomenal intensification of transnational religious networks and of new international players and styles oriented to missionisation, religiosity, spiritual rejuvenation, creating and recreating community. Writings on globalisation have focused on capital and labour flows and on global governance rather than on global operations of religious movements. This article makes some observations regarding the transformation of religion under globalisation and new modes of transnationalism in the context of a discussion of the Tablighi Jama`at and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
