Islam and Politics

Given the challenging nature of terrorism, the UN should eliminate or minimise the sectoral treaties and proactively negotiate a comprehensive convention on international terrorism....

 

And with all this in mind, the court then concludes that “on a balance of probabilities, the evidence in respect of the possessory claim of the Hindus to the composite whole of the disputed property stands on a better footing than the evidence adduced by the Muslims.” Here I am lost. And my bafflement continues...

The Ayodhya verdict deviates from some established juridical traditions. A 930-page judgment signed by five learned judges without disclosing its individual authorship, it has a 116-page addendum penned by one of them incognito, containing his “separate reasons” on one of the case issues....

In brief, it is the red letter day for the constitutional right to religion but a setback to property law and a setback to evidence law with differential burden of proof being demanded from different parties....

The ASI’s main report, which was signed by all those who framed it, stated that no temple was found beneath the Masjid. At the end of the report, there was an unsigned epilogue. It stated that the structure beneath did not look Islamic. Has the court relied on the unsigned epilogue rather than on the signed report?...

Then there’s Tunisia. At this point, you probably know the cliche. The small North African nation remains the one “success” story of the 2011 Arab Spring, the sole nation to throw off its long-ruling dictator in that epochal wave of upheaval and preserve the democratic transition that followed....

Minutes after President Ronald Reagan’s inauguration on Jan. 20, 1981, Iran released the hostages. It was obvious that Iran’s move to engineer the hostage crisis and President Jimmy Carter’s inability to bring the American citizens home was one of the reasons for his defeat in the presidential election of 1980....

 

The Khilafat Movement led by the Ali brothers, Mohammad and Shaukat Ali, made it to our history textbooks. However, the movement which had, and continues to have, a much greater impact was the Jamaat-e-Islami movement led by Abul A'la Maududi....

"We appeal to all countrymen to face the situation with patience and endurance and avoid any kind of provocation and incitement and also stick to peace and optimism whatever be the circumstances."...

Considering the information sharing between the Israeli army and illegal Jewish settlers and their armed militias in the occupied West Bank, Palestinians face the double threat of being targeted by armed settlers as well as by Israeli soldiers....

 

Pakistan has had to act on FATF’s directions because of China. It can’t afford to offend China and knows it has not been very mindful of the Uighur Muslims from Chinese Xinjiang on its soil engaging cross border terrorism....

From Pakistan, to Iran, to Saudi Arabia, to Turkey, all the leading Islamic powers are silent about literally millions of their fellow religious practitioners being brutalized, as are the countless jihadist groups from Indonesia to Iraq...

 

As the world watches the ongoing democratic uprising in Hong Kong, it is impossible to ignore the greater backdrop of oppression and egregious human rights abuses across China: more than 1 million religious minorities now in Xinjiang’s modern-day concentration camps, vast efforts at cultural reprogramming, and regular physical torture….

 

But to a new generation, it looks like a way to perpetuate the power of corrupt clan leaders who pay their followers to entrench their influence. For example, Nabih Berri, the Shia speaker of the Parliament, has held that post for 27 years....

 

Countless individuals remain behind bars on blasphemy charges including the young professor Junaid Hafeez. Countless young women from minority communities will continue to converted forcibly to Islam in Sindh...

In Islam, committing suicide is a sin that clearly leads to hell; the use of suicide bombers to assassinate innocent people is obviously unrelated to Islam....

 

As we have seen for quite a while now how the fresh new waves of riots, unrest, mass protests and genuine uprisings in the past two years have once again relentlessly shaken and scared the ruling powers in countries as apparently different as Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, Lebanon, Sudan, Iran and Palestine....

 

Anti-Muslim sentiment, always present and dormant slowly built up in the aftermath of the war. It maintained a presence on the web for some months in the form of vitriol spewing blogs and Facebook pages and sporadic violence was perpetrated against small Muslim communities — in Anuradhapura in 2011 and Dambulla in 2012....

Physician Parveen Parmar sits with each refugee and listens closely to stories of pain and terror. Then she begins the physical exam. She notes each scar, burn, injured arm or leg and other wounds that validate their accounts....

 

The Prophet dictated that it was a treaty between “Mohammad, the Prophet of Allah, and Quraysh”. Interlocutors for Quraysh objected. They did not recognize him as God’s prophet. Ali, his cousin, refused to drop the preamble. The Prophet intervened and himself deleted the phrase, thus paving the way for a treaty which declared a truce between the two sides....

On Indian television news, anchors invariably treat Pakistani guests as punching bags. And should you mention India and Pakistan in the same breath on social media, odds are that you will immediately be met by a chorus of outrage by angry Indians....

Only eight years since the revolution, the acculturation to democracy in the small North African country is a reality. Tunisians have adjusted, adopted and acquired democratic values, and voting in transparency is becoming a habit....

We are now, as a nation, cast adrift on an uncertain sea of bigotry with even the preteens of decency and respect for diversity gone. While many were celebrating the new Malaysia, a dark and sinister form of ethnoreligious fascism was taking shape and is now upon us....

Those troops were also interrupting Iran’s efforts to build a land bridge from Tehran to Beirut to tighten a noose around Israel — and their removal could help bring the Iran-Israel shadow war out into the open. This is the really big story in the Middle East today....

 

…the way forward is not a new government and a new prime minister, and the dangerous political uncertainty that brings. Instead it is a concerted effort to improve governance and to work for the economic regeneration of Iraq….
