Abstract:

The paper proposes that there are three basic state-religion relations: secular nationalism, ethnic nationalism, and theocratic nationalism. These paradigms form a integral part of the post-colonial state-building project. The paper discusses how Malaysia selected the ethnic nationalism paradigm and how this directed the country's political development, the way it addressed the challenge of religious pluralism, and how it is not theocracy even though Islam is the official religion. The recent March 2008 elections and the possibility of the collapse of ethnic nationalism and the transition to a more open democracy are explored.
