Heritage and Conservation
This chapter focuses on a more positive outlook for Muslim shrines and shows how they can be used and re-interpreted for thier cultural and historical value. There are a number of ways in which the heritage of shrines can be used and promoted. These include the documentation and presentation of existing and destroyed shrines on the Internet, the use of shrines for the promotion of tourism, the preservation of shrines as a form of resistance to extremist interpretations of Islam and the role of shrines in the promotion of interfaith understanding.
