Abstract

Many studies have been conducted to analyse how old media in the West such as newspapers and television practice representation of Islam and Muslims. With the advanced information and technology, the issues of how online media depict Islam and Muslims migrate online and need advanced studies. However, a few scholars have studied this issue providing useful insight into understanding the representation of Islam online. This paper attempts to contribute to this literature by examining the online representation of Islam and Muslims by focusing its analysis on visual images on www.faithfreesom.org. It asks the question of how online media conduct the representational practice of Islam and Muslims. Using the Concept of Representation as its theoretical framework, this paper argues that online media practice representation of Islam and Muslims in the form of stereotype by simplifying Islam into simple, few, and exaggerated nature and reducing Muslims to easily grasped, memorable, and widely recognized characteristics.
