Islam,Terrorism and Jihad

The assassination of two foreigners in a week has highlighted the growing danger posed by militants in Bangladesh, with experts warning that a long-running political crisis has radicalized opponents of the government.

FATA: Fatal Flaws
Ambreen Agha

The Pakistan military had launched an 'all out offensive', codenamed Operation Zarb-e-Azb [Sword of the Prophet] in NWA on June 15, 2014, in the aftermath of the attack on the Jinnah International Airport, Karachi, on June 8-9, 2014, in which at least 33 persons, including all 10 attackers, were killed. According to SATP data, thus far 2,039 terrorists and 227 soldiers have been killed in this ongoing operation. ....

Pleasure Is All Mine: Italian Citizen's Murder, A Rude Awakening
Shah Husain Imam

THE antennae of some Western diplomatic missions in Dhaka had received a signal that 'Western interests' might be targeted in a terrorist attack. But why didn't we have a clue of it? This brings to the fore an information sharing gap, a matter that comes along downstream along the article.

ISIS in Afghanistan
Franz-Michael Mellibin

BE under no illusion: IS has arrived in Afghanistan. Just as the country is gripped by an economic exodus of people seeking better opportunities elsewhere, the self-styled Islamic State is spreading its tentacles into Afghanistan’s most lawless territories in an attempt to establish influence in a region seen as vital to the group’s endgame: a caliphate......

 

Nearly a year after the official end of NATO’s combat mission in Afghanistan, this military failure confirms the worst fears about the weaknesses of the Afghan forces. Some 7,000 government forces and militiamen were overcome by far fewer Taliban in Kunduz.....

 

Bangladesh Militant Group Publishes Global Hitlist of Bloggers, Activists And Writers
‘Write until the end of my life'–Ananya Azad

Bangladesh is an officially secular country, but more than 90% of its 160 million people are Muslim. It gained its independence from Pakistan after a brutal civil war in 1971, which left deep scars. In recent years a new surge of extremism has exacerbated long standing tensions between conservatives and secular liberals.

Counter-Violent Extremism Models
Muhammad Amir Rana

COUNTERING extremism is a missing link in the National Action Plan (NAP). Apparently, the plan was conceived from a counterterrorism and security perspective to address the immediate need of connecting different responses and putting these in a functional policy framework.

TTP: Enduring Shadows

The Badaber PAF base attack has several major precedents. Just a year earlier, on August 14, 2015, at least 12 terrorists wearing suicide vests and armed with RPGs and automatic weapons were killed, and 11 Security Force (SF) personnel were injured in an 11-hour gun battle near Khalid Aviation Airbase and Samungli Airbase in Quetta, The provincial capital of Balochistan….

Reins of terror

The dilemma of how to react to IS atrocities has created a dreadfully confusing situation. The marauding armies of this group have taken over large swathes of land in Iraq and Syria, overseen mass executions of men from the conquered areas, abducted large groups of women and children and then enslaved and sexually assaulted them; …

 

The Country Is Gone, It Is Not For Living Any More, Syria Is Ashes

Syria is an immense collective failure. What has changed for the West in the past several weeks is that it has become more difficult to live in denial of this fact. Western responsibility is engaged by the unfathomable irresponsibility that has turned Syria into a slaughterhouse. President Obama has offered to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees; that is a pittance. A Europe of half a billion people must reject pampered smallness and open its eyes. Desperation cannot be met by penny-counting calculation, or doors slamming shut.....

Mumbai-Based Raza Academy is a Soft Version of Jihadism
Tufail Ahmad for New Age Islam

If modern civilisation is characterised by freedom of speech and individual liberty, Islamic theocrats are the modern-day barbarians threatening the modernity of our age. Among the numerous Islamic clerics who taunt the Indian republic and its rule of law is Saeed Noori, the chief of Mumbai-based Raza Academy – a Barelvi theocratic institution at the centre of a fatwa (Islamic decree) against the Oscar-winner Indian music director A. R. Rahman and Iranian filmmaker Majid  Majidi for their film, "Muhammad: Messenger of God."As per a media report, the fatwa declared Rahman and Majidi as "infidel" and their marriages "invalid" as per Islamic Shariah. It noted:"It is nothing short of a crime to make a film on the Prophet; dramatizing his life and using non-Muslim actors...Making such a film is making a mockery of religion."....

Entity of Islam is Under Threat

" Today, not only the Muslim world, not only Muslims; but the very entity of Islam is under threat. Today, the genes of Islam and the fault lines of the Islamic territory are being distorted. Today, Islam as a religion, a culture and a civilization, is forced to wage a struggle of existence.

Why Join Islamic State?
Patrick Cockburn

Despite the PYD’s denials, and probably their best intentions, the conflict in north-east Syria has many aspects of an ethnic war: the Kurds are driving out Sunni Arabs, whom they accuse of being Islamic State supporters. Those Arabs who flee are seen as demonstrably in league with the enemy: those who stay are suspected of belonging to ‘sleeper cells’, waiting their moment to strike. The Kurds say that they and their ancestors have lived in the area around Tal Abyad for twenty thousand years; the Arabs, they maintain, are recently arrived settlers

 

Allure of Islamic State: Tackling it requires a sophisticated strategy

The point I am trying to make is that reading the IS phenomenon only through the prism of religion would be a mistake. Sure, religious extremism is a factor. But there are economic factors as well. It’s quite possible that many of the Indian IS recruits were as much motivated by the allure of wealth that they could grab in IS territories as they were by religion.

The IS’s Destruction of Ancient Sites Is Barbaric and the World Should Rise up To Condemn It

They see their truth as not only first in the world but as defining the world, determining right from wrong, good from bad, true from false. Any truth but theirs is blasphemy. In another instance, and as justification for attacking the 8th century BC citadel of Assyrian king Sargon II at Khorsabad, 10 miles northwest of Mosul, Iraq, the IS forces said, simply, “We’re ridding the world of polytheism and spreading monotheism across the planet.” This is how the ISIS views the world and why it murdered Khaled al-Asaad and displayed his bloodied, headless body in a public square: It is afraid of difference in the world. ….

 

No Such Thing As Islamic Terrorism
Sabria S. Jawhar

It can’t be emphasized enough that early Islamic education in the Middle East must address religious terrorism and political Islam while western nations must find a balance to allow primary- and secondary-school-age Muslims to exercise their right to free speech to air their views on terrorism.

 

There are two theories. First, the lack of economic opportunity in a well-educated, predominantly youthful country, four years after the Jasmine Revolution that toppled the dictatorship of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Secondly, southern Tunisia has been relegated to the sidelines of the more fashionable story — a mindset to match the Mediterranean influences on food and light on religion…

 

Both ISIS and AQIS threaten the security of Bangladesh. ISIS has the potential to empower existing Islamist militant movements with the ideology, network capabilities, financing and, most importantly, with its brand image. And despite ISIS’ growing influence, AQIS’s local focus means it will likely continue to have its own niche of support.
