The definition of intersectionality can be given as a concept involving discriminative and oppressive institutions on groups that are either disenfranchised or minor along with the process in which there is interconnection between the groups. The intersectionality theory on the other hand is based on the conception that institutions of oppressive nature in societies such as race, gender etcetera do not independently act but are rather inter-related and shaped continuously by each other. The thought conception has emerged first during the 1970s with respect to radical development and movement of feminism multi-racially. The theory of intersectionality has been clearly depicted by the episodes of Citizen Khan which will be evident from the perspective of the following 2 examples analysis
Representation of the setting
In the scene, a room is shown wherein Mr. and Mrs. Khan are standing and having conversation. The room has very narrowed designing and the space is utilized to keep a lot of stuff together such as boxes etc. The room has an appeal of a very simple household which belongs to a Muslim from Pakistan due to certain symbols and colours used in the room such as symbol of moon and star from Pakistan’s flag and use of green and white as they are important 2 colours of the Pakistani flag. The room has from all appearance contributed towards inequality because of the appearance of the room being partial in nature with regard to the owner’s perception of making the place look like a Pakistani house rather than a household from England (Bass et al, 2011). Further contribution lies in the setting revealing reinforced stereotypic perspective of Muslim religion to an audience from Asia itself. The repetition of a setting that exists almost in all Pakistani and Muslim homes and showing the series targeted at Asians where Pakistanis and Islam are also inclusive will only contribute towards people experiencing the racial discrimination and gender biasness all over again.
