Islam,Terrorism and Jihad

Our Selfishness Regarding Terrorism
Hassan Al Mustafa

We should recognize that a human being is valuable, with rights and respect regardless of race, religion or colour. Terrorism violates the human values that manage relationships between societies....

 

Bangladesh: Reassertion of Reason
Sanchita Bhattacharya

Religious minorities are also facing the brunt of this extremist violence. According to partial data collated by Institute for Conflict Management (ICM), since 2013, six people belonging to religious minorities have been confirmed killed, but this is likely a gross underestimate. Data on the plight of minorities in Bangladesh is extremely deficient, with fitful reportage. ....

 

Frankenstein of the Madrasa: Jihad Has Made the Pakistan State Powerless Before the Monster It Has Created
Khaled Ahmed

The horrible scenario in the Iraq-Syria battlefield first unfolded in Pakistan. No one in the Middle East took note of it; no one analysed Pakistan. Pakistan, sunk in denial, was not able to undertake self-analysis. Foreign reporters were kicked out for predicting Pakistan’s endgame. Today, Pakistan is surprising itself on a daily basis.....

 

Since The ISIS Was Proclaimed In June 2014, It Has Carried Out 75 Attacks In 20 Countries: Is Terror Winning?
Talmiz Ahmad

It is clear that even as the ISIS is receiving powerful blows in its home territories from the international coalition and has even lost some major towns, it is making up for these setbacks by carrying out audacious attacks far from home, taking advantage of cadres experienced in war, terror and subversion in Syria and Iraq.....

 

It is a pity that terrorism is not universally opposed simply because it is terror and because it is a crime against humanity. Not all terrorism is treated equally. Some terrorist acts cause no great consternation because they are viewed as functional by some.....

 

ISIS Threat Is Not Going Away but Taking a New Turn
Muhammad Amir Rana

The Muslim countries cannot take this as ‘someone else’s problem’ as their youth are engaged with IS, which can at any time trigger a wave of violence in their native countries. Turkey, Tunisia and other North African Muslim nations have already started to suffer at the hands of IS-inspired militants. This should be taken as a serious warning by Muslim countries that already have an active militant infrastructure....

 

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles”; If Sun Tzu was right, then we need to remind ourselves that the Islamic State is a common enemy that can only be defeated by understanding who they are and part of that is accepting that it does not represent Muslims around the world....

 

A Bombing in Lahore Underscores the Challenges of Confronting Extremism

The extremists will not go quietly. On the same day as the Lahore bombing, ominous protests took place in Islamabad, the Pakistani capital. There tens of thousands gathered to remember Mumtaz Qadri, a former police bodyguard who in 2011 gunned down his charge, Salman Taseer.....

 

Religious Extremists Will Never Succeed In Taking over Pakistan
Bina Shah

Religious extremists will never succeed in taking over Pakistan, even if they maintain deadly effectiveness in spreading the virus of terrorism all over the world. As with any epidemic, the weakest are always the ones to fall first. Yet humanity is the one thing that inoculates us against its reach. As long as we have our humanity, we will still remain united as Pakistanis, no matter who we choose to call our God......

 

Terrorism, Racism and Preventable Loss
Eric Hiariej

Injustice and racism have always had a place in history. Qutb — the Egyptian thinker and the “Lenin” of the radical Islamic movement — cultivated his radicalism while continuing his studies in the US. This puritan scholar faced directly and was shocked by what he later defined as the “evil and fanatical racial discrimination” of Americans.....

The Scourge Of ISIS: Where Is Collective Responsibility?
Raghida Dergham

Libya, meanwhile, is a European mess more than it is an American mess. France in particular is to be held responsible, thanks to former President Nicolas Sarkozy, who sought to involve NATO in a military intervention there. The guise was to stop Muammar Gaddafi from staging a bloodbath in Benghazi as he vowed amid the muddled march of the Arab Spring. But what happened in the end was the fulfilment of oil-related agendas, foiling the Libyan experience. Libya is NATO’s “you break it, you own it”, and Europe could now reap what it sowed in Libya....

 

Pakistan: No Place for Other Faiths
Ajit Kumar Singh

The Jama'at-ul-Ahrar (JuA), a breakaway faction of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the suicide attack. JuA 'spokesperson' Ehsanullah Ehsan declared, "We had been waiting for this occasion. We claim responsibility for the attack on Christians as they were celebrating Easter. It was part of the annual martyrdom attacks we have started this year." The operation was codenamed Saut-ul-Raad [Voice of Thunder]. JuA had declared its 'support' for Daesh (Islamic State, previously Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham, ISIS) in March 2015. ....

 

A Fourth Wave of Jihad

Right now, jihad is really the only game in town — in the world. In the media. On the net. In the global discourse. Jihad is to the Muslim world what Donald Trump has become to the US: ubiquitous, cacophonous, impossible to ignore. And you can bet there are some here willing to listen to what it has to say.....

 
Justice Delayed is Justice Denied
Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

Karadzic has only one group of people-- the Muslims as enemy. But Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ostensibly a Muslim, has his own brethren and coreligionist Muslims and non-Muslims alike as enemies with obvious consequences for the world!....

Islamic State’s Bombings Are a Sign of Panic
Karen J Greenberg

The atrocities are tragic and unacceptable. But the West should understand that this is what winning may look like in the battle against the Islamic State group. The attackers’ coordinated strikes could well stem more from a sense of weakness, than strength. Islamic State has recently taken a series of serious hits at its power and prowess.....

 

Scan the recent high-profile terrorist attacks, and these relationships among the perpetrators recur. Between them there is not just the performed intimacy of a guerrilla group, of brothers in arms, but the deep intimacy of actual brothers, sisters, and lovers. Salah Abdeslam was joined in the Paris attacks by his brother Ibrahim, who blew himself up outside a café. The shooting at the Charlie Hebdo office, in January, 2015, was carried out by another pair of brothers, Saïd and Chérif Kouachi.The mass shooting in San Bernardino, last December, was the work of a married couple, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik. ....

 

The Scariest Thing about Brussels Is Our Reaction to It: We Should Not Alter Laws, Not Infringe Liberties, Not Persecute Muslims
Simon Jenkins

To downplay something is not to ignore it. The terrorists have specific aims, deploying their atrocities for a political cause. There is no sensible defence in a free society against atrocity. But there is a defence against its purpose. It is to avoid hysteria, to show caution and a measure of courage, not Cameron’s lapse into public fear. It is not to alter laws, not to infringe liberties, not to persecute Muslims.....

 

A Terrorist Attack Has Happened In Europe; Let The Standard Response Begin…..
Douglas Murray

After London people said ‘What can we learn from France’.  After Paris they said ‘What can we learn from the Swedish model.’  Nobody cites Sweden anymore.  In fact nobody looks to anyone else’s model anymore.  Because all of the ‘models’ failed.  So here we are – stuck with a problem our politicians have given us and to which they have no answers.  Perhaps all this pointless chatter is just what people do to distract themselves before they have to face up to that fact.....

 
Be Prepared For the Long War!
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain

Be Prepared For the Long War!
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain

Intellectual examination of Islamic ideology and philosophy has been ongoing in outstanding think-tanks in the US, the UK and other Western countries, but it is at the implementation stage that things get unstuck. There is no doubt that evil organizations like Daesh and its associates in the Middle East need to be physically eliminated, but more important it is the narrative of confrontation which has to be removed from the minds of the followers of Radical Islam.....

 

The Slaughter of the Innocent in Brussels
Hamid Dabashi

As we mourn the victims of any act of vicious violence in Brussels or in Beirut, in Paris or in Aleppo, in San Bernardino or in Istanbul, we must remain steadfast not to fall victim to the dim-witted conceptual trap this vicious cycle of violence has devised to perpetuate itself between ("Terror" and "War on Terror"). "Terror" and "War on Terror" are the mirror images of each other. We have nothing to do with either of those two vicious ideologies. We - Muslims, Christians, Jews, gentiles, Europeans, Arabs, US citizens or otherwise - are victims of it......

 

Is This A Triumph For The Islamic Peacemakers?
Dr Tahir ul-Qadri

"Every Salafi and Deobandi is not a terrorist but I have no hesitation in saying that everyone is a well-wisher of terrorists and this has not been appreciated by the Western governments," he said.

Dr ul-Qadri, who has the authority of a Sheikh–ul-Islam, a title given to those who have superior knowledge of the principles of the faith, is coming out with his statement now because the Wahhabis and Deobandis have been silent in condemning the killings in Pakistan and abroad.

They dominate much of the apparatus of state in Pakistan — as well as most of the mosques in London — which is why in the West we receive mixed messages: the military launches vast offensives while the religious and education ministries say nothing. As a result, many in the West believe that the church in Pakistan is not doing enough to counter the violence.---

America Uses the G-Word to Describe Islamic State’s Atrocities

Genocide is a momentous term in international law. According to a 1948 convention, it describes killing and other heinous acts, committed “with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group”. The American government can argue that the new designation does not imply any new policy, given that it is fighting IS already....

 

Pakistan’s Ransom Market
Khaled Ahmed

It probably became disenchanted in 2010 when it saw two old ISI officers, Colonel Sultan Amir Tarar alias Colonel Imam and Squadron Leader Khalid Khwaja, being kidnapped by the Taliban on a video before their murder at the hands of the Taliban commander Hakimullah Mehsud....

 

Even After Escaping ISIS, the Suffering of the Yazidis Persists
Giles Fraser

For it was many of their Arab Sunni neighbours who welcomed Isis in. It was the same people they said good morning to every day who stood by as Isis dragged Yazidi women off into sexual slavery and decapitated their children. The mother of the family, still in the same dress she escaped in, drew her finger over her throat.....

 
Al Qaeda’s Branch In Africa Makes A Lethal Comeback
Dionne Searcey, Eric Schmitt And Rukmini Callimach

One American military counterterrorism official said that Boko Haram, the extremist group that has terrorized northern Nigeria for years, might be trying to increase its body count to uphold the bloody standard of the Islamic State, to which it has pledged allegiance. Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, in turn, seems to be trying to keep up with the bloodshed.
