Secure The Line Of Commerce With Pakistan
Afaq Hussain

Cross-LoC trade need not be considered only from an economic prism as there is a deeper political benefit as well, which was the essence behind initiating this trade as a CBM. The current political discussions have created the right environment to place cross-LoC trade in the overall economic agenda between India and Pakistan and eventually take this initiative beyond being a mere CBM.


Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan, The Creator of Pure Music with Clear Intellect
Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan

On the occasion of Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan Saheb’s 43rd death anniversary, I pray to my father and guru, like every day. May his soul rest in peace. As I have written in my memoir about Ustad Haafiz Ali Khan (1877-December 28, 1972) that for me, the seven notes of music were him. He was the epitome of music. He was my inspiration, my reason of perspiration and he was my idea of representation.

Christmas in The Ummah
Tunku Varadarajan

Christmas in The Ummah
Tunku Varadarajan

The Saudis export their theo-imperialist brand of Islam to murderous effect — as Paris, London, New York, Madrid, Mumbai, Bali, Raqqa, Beirut, Timbuktu, Tunis, Nairobi, Garissa, Bangkok and San Bernardino can testify. And yet, they prohibit the public practice of any faith other than Islam on their own territory.

In The Line of Fire
Khaled Ahmed

A liberal has the fatal tendency to find his locus in the middle of things. When two extreme factions are drawn out against each other, he stands in the middle and gets thrashed from both sides. In times of high collective emotion, he runs the risk of losing his life. That’s why he is usually in retreat when faced with a conflictual situation. He rarely agrees with fellow liberals. There’s nothing new about him since John Stuart Mill made liberalism look like a creed.


Out of My Mind: Opportunity Not Crisis
Meghnad Desai

There will be a chance as and when the issue is no longer sub-judice to plan to turn Ayodhya into a multi-faith centre of a global scale. Jerusalem has a site where the three Abrahamic religions share the space despite their long and often murderous quarrels over the last several centuries. It is a global symbol of religious pluralism. There is no reason why, if India wills, Ayodhya cannot be made into a shining monument to the coming together of the Sanatan Dharma and Islam. There should also be facilities for a Buddhist shrine since the Tathagata preached in those parts.


We Are All Muslim Indeed, Michael Moore
Mariya Tayyab

So thank you Michael Moore for reminding me that as an American, it is my duty to defend anyone as long as they live in this country -- because they are American just like me. But most of all, thank you for defending another group of people that you may have no relation to other than the fact that both of you are American.


A changed international security environment, pressure on Pakistan and willingness to take risks on India’s part are driving a new round of diplomacy. What next…At the end of the day one cannot take away anything from the decisiveness and risk taking capability of Prime Minister Modi. Whether this entire exercise will finally result in something transformational, only time will tell. For now, at least the efforts have been in the right direction.

A wave of recent attacks by extremists acting in the name of Islam - including in San Bernardino, California, this month - has contributed to a rise in anti-Muslim speech in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. The New York Times asked its readers who are Muslim how they talk to their children about these difficult times. Close to 250 people responded. Many wrote about how they try to teach their children that terrorists do not reflect them or their faith.

The Return of History
Aatish Taseer

...The eighth-century caliph being idolized by the Islamic State practiced a far more lenient rule than Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi does. Harun was tolerant of Shiites and religious minorities. His court would engage in freewheeling debates over matters of faith. “You could play musical instruments,” Mr. McCants said. “He loved to drink wine, he loved men.”


Asia’s Bleeding Heart
Mohammad Taqi

The Heart of Asia Conference (HOAC) in Islamabad last week was bookended by two devastating attacks in Kandahar and Kabul. As Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was being honoured with a 21-gun salute in Islamabad, the Taliban were in the midst of a 20-hour-long assault on Kandahar airport that killed at least 54.

The arrival of Russia has changed the complexion of the Syrian conflict completely, to the detriment of Erdogan. Erdogan wants to destroy Assad and the Kurds and help IS, whereas Russia (and Iran) wants exactly the opposite. America and European Union want to demolish IS, but do not want to be seen in the company of Russia!

How Tolerant Minds and Calm Politics Can Stop ISIS' War of Terror from Spreading
Gopalkrishna Gandhi

ISIS' manslaughter in Paris has placed on Muslims across the world the agonizing task of self-definition and self-explanation. It has placed Muslims in India in the doubly agonizing predicament of fearing a local backlash for what ISIS does as part of its global agenda.


An Open Letter To Aamir Khan: Is Leaving India A Way To Fight Intolerance?
Sandip Roy

As a Muslim man, even if you claim to “represent everyone”, you do realize that even in the First World, Muslims are hardly the most welcome? In 31 states and counting in the US, refugees from Syria are no longer welcome. CAGE, an advocacy group, has warned that British Muslims are being subjected to “cradle-to-grave” levels of surveillance that go beyond America’s McCarthy witch-hunts during the Cold War. …
