This chapter describes three events in the summers of 2005 and 2006 that riveted the Bengali community. They are: the election of George Galloway, the controversy over the filming of Brick Lane and the visit of a prominent Bangladeshi Islamist to England. The significant commonalities in these three events are highlighted: all reflect how religious identity is being brought to the forefront and how much strength the Islamists have gained both discursively and organizationally.
