Abstract

Rituals and performances supplicating Mānik Pīr, a Sufi culture-hero venerated in isolated rural pockets of western Bangladesh and southern West Bengal (India), function as "infrapolitics" of the subaltern classes in the domain of "popular Islam." A substantial segment of popular ("folk") culture of the subaltern classes articulates disguised ideological insubordination critiquing the dominant classes.
