Barriers to Literacy Education in Muslim Minority Populations

Khaleda Abdus Salam Khondekar


Abstract: Literacy education is an essential pillar of personal empowerment, economic development, and social progress. However, in Muslim minority populations, it faces unique and multifaceted challenges that hinder its effective implementation. This abstract provides a concise overview of the key barriers to literacy education in Muslim minority communities. This study investigates the barriers preventing equitable access to literacy education in Muslim minority populations. Drawing from a comprehensive literature review, case studies, and interviews, the research reveals the complex nature of these barriers. Barriers to literacy education in Muslim minority communities are shaped by a confluence of factors. Socioeconomic disparities, driven by limited resources and employment opportunities, impede access to quality education. Cultural and religious influences, while integral to identity, can sometimes hinder educational advancement. Language barriers, stemming from multilingual settings, create additional hurdles, while gender-related challenges often perpetuate disparities. The implications of these barriers are far-reaching, affecting not only individual opportunities but also the overall development and cohesion of these communities. Recognizing the need for tailored interventions, this research explores potential strategies to address these barriers and promote literacy education in Muslim minority populations. In conclusion, this study emphasizes the urgency of addressing the barriers to literacy education in Muslim minority communities. It advocates for a multifaceted approach, recognizing the intersection of socioeconomic, cultural, linguistic, and gender-related factors. By dismantling these barriers, we can work towards a more inclusive and equitable future, ensuring that literacy remains a beacon of empowerment for all, regardless of their background.
