    ABSTRACT Diaspora politics is a form of transnational political engagement which is structured around a particularistic identity category (such as a national, ethnic, religious, or sectarian identity) and a real or mythical “homeland” (Adamson 2012). Drawing the basic frame of reference from this definition, this paper seeks to analyse the political activism and institutionalism of the South Asian diaspora in Britain. A liberal-democratic polity provides diaspora communities with adequate opportunities for participation and competition for public resources. However, multiple locations, internal diversities and contexts of migration may act as hindrances to their consolidation as political communities. Hence, to negotiate the political spaces in the host societies, religious identity emerges as a significant consolidating factor. This happens amidst tensions and pressures that emerge from assimilation, integration and transnationalism. Today, diaspora identities are considerably shaped by political happenings and socio-cultural transformations and movements in the homeland. Here, South Asia's peculiar political history facilitates the religious narrative among diasporas in host societies. Lastly, the paper will assess the evolution of Britain from a difference-blind liberal polity that has historically been avoiding political religiosity to a polity where faith groups are important civil society participants in areas of governance. In recent times, political frameworks of the host society tend to identify ‘faith-based communities’ as important stakeholders which further rationalizes and reinforces defining ethnic minorities and diaspora groups in religious terms. Meanwhile, the native majority communities are also actively engaged in constructing and subtly propagating specific narratives regarding the diaspora thus giving rise to the discourse on ‘model’ communities.

    ABSTRACT Identity formation among the diaspora is primarily based on territorial affiliations, ethnic, cultural or racial determinants and class orientations. Internal fissures and differences are often subsumed or underplayed as a part of ‘consensus’ or ‘convenience’ which is based on shared identities and common interests among the diaspora communities. However, this consensus is constantly under pressure due to challenges emerging from religious identities, diaspora nationalism, politics in the country of origin and contestations in political, social and cultural terrains of the host country. Different migrations and settlement patterns of diasporas, diverse social and economic contexts along with transnationalism play an important role in facilitating this process. Moreover, the host country’s attempts to accommodate, integrate and assimilate immigrant populations may have divergent outcomes. It may lead to a heightened identity consciousness, hardening of external and internal boundaries or exemplification of hybridity among the diaspora. Drawing upon the conception of diaspora identities as those “constantly producing and reproducing themselves anew, through transformation and difference” (Hall, 1990, p.235), this paper explores the formation, evolution and eventual disintegration of the South Asian diasporic identity in Britain.
