This paper investigates the nature of secularism practiced by the Singapore state, focusing on the two main Islamic organizations, MUIS and Pergas. I postulate that the state uses “muscular” and “calibrated” secularism to manage them, and co-opts them either formally or informally. The two organizations agree to such an arrangement.
