Qureshi is currently a Doctorate in Social Sciences (D.Soc.Sc.) candidate at Tampere University. His research project maps out the picture of Islam (and, as an extension, the ‘other’ Muslim) imagined within Finnish societal discourse on a proposed mosque project. His study employs the Foucauldian concept of power to highlight how episteme derived and constructed out of preconceived notions, molds contemporary responses. Qureshi’s earlier work highlighted how the Blasphemy Laws of Pakistan, which are originally rooted in the country’s colonial experience, were tailored by various societal power brokers during Asia Bibi’s blasphemy trial. Qureshi’s current research interests include critical secularism, epistemic governance, post-colonial identity formation, and post-modernism.
