The Ritual Resistance : A Qualitative Study of the Spiritual Warfare Against a Mosque in Karlstad (English)
Abstract [sv]

I juli 2017 rapporterade lokalmedia om en händelse i stadsdelen Rud i Karlstad, på platsen för en tilltänkt moské. Snart stod det klart att den pentekostalt kristna rörelsen International Mission Church Karlstad stod bakom vad som visade sig vara en ceremoni. Denna uppsats syftar till att undersöka vad det var som egentligen hände. Vidare ingår uppsatsen i forskningsprojektet ”Karlstads moské – förhandlingar om islam i Värmland”. Ett studentbaserat projekt vid Karlstads universitet som behandlar islams utveckling i Värmland från olika aspekter. I projektet belyser denna studie det religiösa motståndet mot moskébygget.

Med hemsökelseriter samt textritualisering som teoretiska utgångspunkter konstateras att det ceremoniella görandets syfte var att skydda platsen samt att visa sitt missnöje mot nämnda moské. I ett manifest som ligger till grund för undersökningen uppmanas det till andlig krigföring mot det som går emot församlingens värderingar. Studien får dels sin relevans genom bristen på rituella skildringar och dels genom det faktum att islam och islamkritik är ett relevant ämne i dagens samhälle.

Abstract [en]

In July 2017, local media reported on an event in the district of Rud in Karlstad, at the site of an intended mosque. Soon it became clear that the Pentecostal Christian communion International Mission Church Karlstad, was accountable for what proved to be a ceremony. This essay aims to examine what really happened. Furthermore, this essay is included in the research project ”The Karlstad Mosque – Negotiations on Islam in Värmland”. A student-based project at Karlstad University that deals with Islam’s development in Värmland from various aspects. In the project, this study illustrates the religious resistance against the mosque.

With rites of affliction and text ritualization as a theoretical premise, it is stated that the purpose of the ceremonial process was to protect the site and to show the communion’s dissatisfaction with the mosque. In a manifesto, that is the basis for the examination, it is called for spiritual warfare against what goes against the values of the communion. The study is partly relevant because of the lack of ritual depictions and partly by the fact that Islam and Islam criticism is a relevant subject in today’s society.
