To have multiculturalism, the public sphere must accommodate the presence of new group identities: Prof Tariq Modood

The lecture explained why we must value our citizenship and how it should be about our sense of belonging. Prof. Modood said that “we belong to our citizens, and we belong to our co-citizens”. Multiculturalism, therefore, cannot succeed without people valuing their citizenship. It retells the national story/ history so that minorities can be included in it and wants the story to be inclusive, plural, and multicultural while ensuring that these stories are narrated so that they are not stigmatising. He asserts,” to have multiculturalism, the public sphere must accommodate the presence of new group identities.” Public educational institutions and political organisations should work as the machines of reformation retelling the plural stories of the nation.

A hard call

Contesting ideological orientations have caused the exclusion of many talented, competent, and capable people from playing their part in state-building and nation-building. For example, a non-Muslim could not be elected as prime minister and/or president of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan no matter their capabilities.
