Islam,Terrorism and Jihad

State And Non-State Actors Of Pakistan
Zahid Hussain

After it was banned in 2002, JeM broke up into small cells many of them directly linked to Al Qaeda and the Afghan Taliban. Those splinters were responsible for a series of audacious terrorist attacks including two assassination attempts on former president Gen Pervez Musharraf. The footprints of JeM were also found in the Lal Masjid episode.

 

ISIS: The Army Of The Desperate
Talmiz Ahmad

The number of those who responded to this call is staggering: the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is said to have 200,000 fighters, of whom a third are already battle-hardened. Most of them are from Iraq and Syria, but at least 30,000 are foreigners from 80 countries; about 7,000 are from Europe, including 2,500 women. ....

In the last 15 years, several major cities have come under attack — New York (2001), London (2005), Mumbai (2008), Boston (2013), Peshawar (2014) and Paris (2015). In the first week of 2016 alone, terrorists have struck Kabul, Pathankot, Tel Aviv, and various locations in Iraq. ...

Expansion of Islamic State
Dr Asim Yousafzai

There are certain unmistakable signs that suggest the emergence of a strong IS footprint in Sunni-majority Pakistan. With a population of 200 million, nine percent of Pakistanis support IS but more troublesome is the fact that 62 percent do not know the answer to this question, reports a PEW research survey.

 

After joining IS, Dhar posted a photo of himself cradling his baby and brandishing an AK-47. He followed Al Qaeda preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed's teachings, and was said to have mentored one of Lee Rigby's murderers, Michael Adebolajo. Last year he posted an essay online defending IS executions and claiming the likes of Jihadi John had the 'moral high ground' over the West.

To Defeat Islamic Extremism, Empower Moderate Muslims
Majid Sadeghpour

The challenge is great, but so is the power of a concerted effort by world powers, combined with the will, manpower and knowledge of moderate regional actors. Among these important allies are Kurdish forces, the Free Syrian Army, many moderate tribes in Iraq, and other moderate militias....

 
Dealing With Boko Haram
Amino Abubakar & Aderogba Obisesan

Boko Haram has resorted to suicide bombers — many of them young children — to wage its war for an independent “Islamic” state in the country. The extremist group has also spread its bombing campaign to neighboring Cameroon, Chad and Niger.

 

Is Pakistan supporting Bangladeshi Islamists?
Shamil Shams

The Bangladeshi government has also intensified its crackdown on Islamist groups involved in killing secular bloggers, but Wolf thinks it is far from enough, saying: “Bangladesh has effectively been transformed into an Islamic state. As a result, Islamist parties have been able to assume a bigger role in the country’s politics. ...

 

ISIS’ War on Christmas
Kamel Daoud

Pointing out that Christmas is Jesus’ birthday and that Jesus is a recognized prophet in the genealogy of the Quran would have served no purpose. The Islamists’ mental cartography is binary: “Dar el-Islam, Dar el-Koffr” — Land of Islam versus Land of Impiety. They want to de-Westernize the Arab world.

 

After Taliban Attack In Kabul, A Music Teacher Keeps Playing
Rod Nordland

When a Taliban suicide bomber infiltrated a play being staged in a high school attached to the French cultural institute here, it was not clear at first who the target was. The audience was packed with diplomats and prominent Afghans, and the bomber made his way to the front row, where he blew himself up next to a German spectator, killing him.

Terrorism And Us
S Sadia Kazmi

When a society itself has no qualms about coming across as intolerant and extremist, then one really cannot blame outsiders for showing Pakistan in a negative light or dragging it in as a prime suspect in terrorist incident. Despite the invigoration of NAP, the will to override writ of the state is quite strong. ...

 

Living In A Troubled Neighbourhood, Pakistan
Hiranmay Karlekar

While the Indian Mujahideen remains to be crushed, the Islamic State, which has already declared its intention to strike in India, is making recruits. It will be unwise to think it will not grow here. Those who were dismissive of it when it first emerged in Syria and Iraq are now eating their words. It will be defeated but not before it has played havoc with the lives of millions and left a large territory in West Asia in ruins. We cannot take the slightest chance in India.

Bangladesh Swings On A Pendulum
Tariq A. Al-Maeena

The politicization of our religion has become an everyday trend.  And it is not restricted to governments.  Terror groups such as Daesh (the self-proclaimed IS) or Al-Qaeda all chant verses from the Holy Qur’an while they go about their murderous missions.  The powers behind such mobs usually have the virtues of Islam as the last thing on their minds.

Stop Asking Me To Condemn Terrorists Just Because I’m Muslim

Five Reasons Why We Must NOT Censor ISIS Propaganda
Dr. Azeem Ibrahim

In the circumstances, it is perhaps understandable that there have been calls on the mainstream media to curtail the coverage they give to ISIS. When terrorists carry out attacks like the ones in Paris last month, they court media attention more than anything. And on the face of it, at least, it would seem that the most immediate retort would be to deny them the publicity they crave. But I believe that would be the wrong response.

 

Pakistan Confronts Extremism: Job Half-Done

Pakistan is likely to proceed with caution against LeT. The outfit is widely thought of as South Asia’s most lethal terrorist group. And through Falah-e-Insaniat it runs a vast and popular nationwide welfare organisation. A year ago, for instance, it was their ambulances and volunteers that were most prominent at the many funerals held on a cold winter’s day in Peshawar.

Pakistan: Countering Militants’ Ideology
I.A. Rehman

Perhaps the most significant finding is that military action alone cannot rid the country of the threat posed by the militants. Local observers and foreign analysts (who often have better sources of information than Pakistanis themselves) both agree on the urgency of challenging the militants’ ideology and blunting its appeal to the common Pakistani.... Unfortunately the government has failed to use its own institutions — from the Council of Islamic Ideology to the judicial academy and departments of Islamiat in colleges and universities — to counter the extremists’ version of religion. A full-blooded programme to rid Islamic thought of the stamp of a certain imperialism, to borrow a phrase from Iqbal, is the minimum requirement of a narrative that could dismantle the militants’ case and secure Pakistan against threats that are becoming more and more ominous.
