By Christian Science Monitor

Compiled by New Age Islam Edit Bureau


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. …

The Paris attack raises questions

By Ali Malik

Compiled by New Age Islam Edit Bureau


An explosion near the sports stadium, the Stade de France, which French news services said was apparently a suicide bombing, occurred as Germany and France were playing a soccer match, forcing a hasty evacuation of Mr. Hollande. As the scope of the assaults quickly became clear, he convened an emergency cabinet meeting and announced that France was placing severe restrictions on its border crossings. “As I speak, terrorist attacks of an unprecedented scale are taking place in the Paris region,” he said in a nationally televised address. “There are several dozen dead, lots more wounded. It’s horrific.”.....

Paris Terror Attacks Kill Over 100; France Declares Emergency State

Secularism Is India’s Need, Not a Luxury
Babar Ayaz

I had three opportunities to speak at various forums in India in the last 12 months, where I had to emphasise that in all post-1970 elections no major leader in Pakistan tried to create hatred against India. I also stressed that Pakistan blundered by mixing religion with politics from the very beginning and is now paying a heavy price in blood for making this lethal political formulation. India, I observed, should learn from our mistakes as bringing religion into politics will breed intolerance in society....

Suu Kyi’s Win is Comparable to Mandela’s ‘Long Walk to Freedom’
Aung San Suu Kyi

The apparatus of Myanmar’s ‘deep State’ — which detests Suu Kyi’s star status and mass appeal — engaged in patronage politics and fraudulent vote-buying, press-gagged government employees, and ran a blatantly racist and religiously charged campaign in an orthodox Buddhist nation to paint Suu Kyi as a “candidate of Muslim minorities”.


Chetan Bhagat and the Anatomy of a Bigot
Chetan Bhagat

That rest of India, argues Mr Bhagat, is made up of nationalists. Unlike the pampered and privileged liberals, the nationalists are made up of the patriotic, the aspirational and the talented. They are the salt of the earth. They work hard to attain their success. Nothing is handed to them on a platter.


Invitation to Peace
Firdous Syed

…Kashmir is longing to have a transformation from a miserable situation of a conflict to that of an everlasting peace.  Without desiring peace for India and Pakistan, Kashmir alone can never realize that dream.  We, most earnestly invite prime minister of India, and despite the reputation he possess, to peace.  We wish to welcome prime minister of India wholeheartedly. Will he enable us to do so, by accepting our invitation for peace?


He Named Me Malala: The Ordinary Life Behind an Extraordinary Girl
Malala Yousafzai

David Guggenheim’s documentary captures Malala’s everyday life as both a young teenager and a global activist through poignant and often humorous interview scenes. Malala is followed around her home, through school, to television interviews and global summits to spread her message of educational equality.


Turkey’s Authoritarian Drift
Mustafa Akyol

This power transfer from the secular minority to the religious majority could have been a historic accomplishment, had it taken the form of national reconciliation — as many liberals, including me, naïvely hoped. Yet gradually, especially in the past three years, it took the form of revenge, intoxication with power and paranoia. There was a series of witch hunts, relentless intimidation, and even confiscation of critical media outlets.....

Maldives: A Nation in Freefall
Yameen Rasheed

This year witnessed the largest anti-government protests in Maldivian history. The government responded with the biggest political crackdown in over a decade. The entire opposition political leadership remains under arrest or in exile. And now, yet another vice president is in prison over his alleged involvement in a speedboat explosion on September 28. …


Shah Rukh Khan’s Voice Can Carry and Gain Traction — If We Let It
Shahrukh Khan

Is an artist representative of a religion, community, caste, class and, of course, craft? Can you separate one part from the whole? Within that second question lies the dispiriting fact that the two seem to be increasingly twinned, the pitch rising in venom and hysteria with each passing day. The poisonous fallout, being played out in the public domain, is to the detriment of us all.

The Economist Explains: Why Burmese Monks Accuse Aung San Suu Kyi Of Being An Islamist

…In central Myanmar, monks have reportedly been warning voters that the NLD wants to turn Myanmar into a Muslim country. Wirathu, a Ma Ba Tha-affiliated monk from Mandalay, says that the NLD cares more about Muslims than about Burman Buddhists, the country’s biggest ethnic and religious group. Where do these accusations come from, and do they have any validity?


America’s Broken Pakistan Policy
Brahma Chellaney

The paradox is that those in Washington who worry about a rogue commander in Pakistan seizing control of a nuclear bomb seem oblivious to the fact that the Pakistani military has already become radicalized and that the ISI has turned rogue, with its jihadist rampages spawning more dangerous Islamists.


Modi’s India…Pakistan’s Opportunity
Ayaz Amir

To sum up, Narendra Modi is a godsend to Pakistan. More power to Hindutva, more power to the saffron Nazism of the RSS, the spiritual fountainhead before which the Indian prime minister bows. If we master our internal weaknesses, expand the sphere of enlightenment and tolerance, there is nothing that we have to fear from any other quarter.


India Should Replace Secularism with Sufism: Naeem Akhtar, Minister for Education, Jammu & Kashmir
Naeem Akhtar, Minister for Education, J&K

Earlier, the program started with a theme presentation by Prof Naseem Ahmad Shah, who also moderated the session. It was followed by Ali Zahiri Tousi’s Sufism and its Cultural Manifestations, Sultan Shahin’s India and its Vibrant Sufi Connect and Prof Hameed Naseem Rafiabadi’s  How do we Preserve and Promote the Values Enshrined in Reshi-Sufi way.
