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
Rana Elmir

A 2009 studyconducted by the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point concluded conservatively that al-Qaeda has killed eight times as many Muslims as non-Muslims.

 

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.

Fighting Terror In Pakistan: The Problem Next Door
Rod Nordland

The prevalence of that ideology has become a factor even in the news and entertainment industry. Take, for instance, the relatively mainstream commentator and television host Zaid Hamid, with almost 800,000 “likes” on his official Facebook page and a warm relationship with Pakistan’s de facto military rulers, who has long espoused views regarded elsewhere as extremist or at least on the fringe.

 

Funding Terror through Extortion in Pakistan
Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

Extortion has become rampant across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in particular, and, in fact, across Pakistan at large. The failure of the state to control this menace has contributed directly to the capacities of terrorist groups to sustain their operations, undermining the security of citizens and the state across the country.

 

Why Do Over 17 Million Pakistanis Hold A ‘Favourable’ View Of ISIS?
Noman Ansari

The government of Pakistan should be commended for the swift response to the hate speech. It is part of the National Action Plan initiative by the administration to nip these plants in the bud before they grow into poisonous bushes. It may seem like a tiny step, but in context of this nation’s history, it is a giant one.

With its deep roots in politics, Jamaat has experienced lots of ups and downs. Its major setback was its stand against the independence of Bangladesh and its great success was it was part of the government with two ministerial posts during the two regimes of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) under the then prime minister Khaleda Zia.

 

Saudi-Led Islamic Anti-Terrorism Alliance: ‘Sunni Front’ Against Terror Is a Bad Idea
Murat Yetkin

The idea of establishing a “Sunni front” is not something that has just come up over the last few weeks. It is an idea suggested by King Salman of Saudi Arabia to international leaders, including Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan, who went to Riyadh to congratulate him on his ascension to the throne in March this year. A Sunni front consisting of 10 countries was indeed formed by the end of March to take joint action in Yemen. The aim of that Sunni front was proposed by Salman as a stand against “Shiite expansionism backed by Iran” in the Middle East.

 

Seared Hearts: The Roads Trodden By Islamist Militants Are Said To Lead To Pakistan
F.S. Aijazuddin

“WOULD God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!” wailed the stricken patriarch King David. A year ago yesterday, on Dec 16, 132 sets of parents in Peshawar had cause to repeat that lament, after the cooling bodies of their children were brought from the Army Public School Peshawar to their homes, to a cooling, home-cooked meal they would never taste.

 

Islamic State: The Menace Is Its Narrative
Tamim Ansary

Some say Daesh's narrative has nothing to do with Islam, but that's disingenuous. Obviously it has something to do with Islam. Its roots go back to the origin story cherished by Muslims, which tells of a small group of worshipful devouts who are targeted for extermination by an overwhelmingly powerful enemy; they fight back, and guided by God, the only God, they not only survive but end up ruling the world. And that story does have mythic power, if you feel affiliated with the original small group.

Islam Condemns Religious Extremism
Kamaldeen Ayodele Muili

Islam Condemns Religious Extremism
Kamaldeen Ayodele Muili

Islam is a religion of peace, and Muslims should be seekers of peace at all times. Any violent behavior cannot be of Islam. Another supreme example of Muhammad's benevolence and tolerance was during his triumphant return from Medina to his homeland Mecca. In Mecca Muhammad was originally severely persecuted. On his return with all the powers there could be as a conqueror, he did not terrorize or kill his adversaries despite all the power he commanded, but instead forgave all that fought against him during the early period of Islam in Mecca.

 

Al-Baghdadi Zeroes In On Libya: The Next Evolution of Islamic State
Joseph V. Micallef

It's believed that about 70% of the Islamic State militants in Libya are foreigners, with the bulk coming from Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Sudan and Tunisia. In recent months there have been consistent reports that Islamic State has been transferring "administrators" and "military commanders" to Libya to take direct control of its militants there. Moreover, Islamic State websites in Libya have been prominently featuring the slogan that "Sirte will be no less than Raqqa," suggesting that if Raqqa falls, Sirte may become the new capital of Islamic State.

 

Saudi Arabia Must Stop Funding Islamic Extremism
Amanda Paul

For decades Saudi Arabia has heavily financed the spread of Wahhabism abroad. While the exact sum is not known, it is estimated that at least $100 billion has been spent exporting fanatical Wahhabism to various poor Muslim nations worldwide over the past three decades. When one considers the fact that the Soviets spent about $7 billion spreading communism worldwide in the 70 years from 1921 and 1991, this is an enormous figure. …
