or did they mean the threat of Modernity, rather?
"What are the perceptions that cause the Islamic elite to display hostility towards Modernity? Wilfred Cantwell Smith in 1957 described the crisis of Islam,Its [Islam] greatest problem is the degree to which those who in the fullest sense know the religion have largely lost contact with the modern world, and those genuinely oriented to modernity have largely lost contact with their religion.[ IMH 165]. The crisis today has assumed new textures since Islamic resistance today is both technologically modern but culturally anti-modern. Bassan Tibi helpfully unpacks the Islamic experience of Modernity into two forms: institutional and cultural Modernity. By cultural Modernity Tibi means the principle of subjectivity according to which a person is defined as an individual of free will, capable of determining his/her own destiny and changing the social and natural environment. Institutional Modernity takes science and technology as its instrumental achievements [CF24]. It will become evident that Muslims aspire to appropriate institutional Modernity while vigorously resisting cultural Modernity. This ambivalence explains what seems to be contradictory behavior of Islamists towards Modernity."
