Abstract

This qualitative study aimed to disclose the representation of Islam on an online newspaper article from BBC News by employing an appropriate analytical notion, News Structures by van Dijk (1988b) which include semantic macrostructures, superstructures, and local microstructures. By adhering the concept of purposive sampling and considering some variables, an online newspaper article with the coverage of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association who did the help service in Cardiff, Wales were selected as the main data. As the findings revealed, the semantic macrostructures which presented the global topics had denoted positive meanings of Islam. In addition, the superstructures disclosed the Ahmadi Muslims who helped people in need and cleaned up the city street at Christmas and New Year as the most prominent information. Further, the local microstructures that comprised the analyses of four styles including semantic, syntactic, lexical, and rhetoric indicated that Islam was represented as helpful, peaceful, and tolerant to other religions. Thus, the present study indicated that the newspaper article tended to speak up for Islam, in which Islam was mostly portrayed in a positivity. It implicitly claimed the news article as a campaign to challenge a common world-wide stereotype about Islam, the Islamophobia.
