جاگیر دارانہ جمہوریت میں عوام او رمنتخب امیدواروں میں جو فرق او ردوری ہوجاتی ہے اس کی وجہ سےاگرکبھی آمریت یا مارشل لاء کے خلاف تحریک چلائی جاتی ہے تو اس میں کامیابی کے ا مکانات اس لئے کم ہوجاتے ہیں کہ حکومت کے بدلنے کے ساتھ ہی یہ جاگیر دار نمائندےاپنی وفاداریاں بدل لیتےہیں کیونکہ ان میں سےبہت کم ہیں جو اپنی مراعات و آسائشوں کو خطرے میں ڈالنے کی ہمت رکھتے ہوں ۔ جاگیردار خاندانوں کی وفاداریاں بدلنے کی وجہ سے ہمارے سیاسی نظام میں کوئی استحکام پیدا نہیں ہوا ۔

 

دہشت گردی اب کسی ایک ملک یا قوم کا مسئلہ نہیں رہا۔ یہ ایک بین الاقوامی اشو بن چکا ہے۔ پاکستان دہشت گردی کے عفریت سے بری طرح متاثر ہوا ہے ۔ افواج پاکستان کو دہشت گردوں کے خاتمے کا جو ٹاسک دیا گیا تھا ، وہ بڑی حد تک پورا ہوچکا ہے۔ فوجی نوعیت کی فتوحات قابل ذکر ہیں۔ ضرب عضب کے تین اہداف مقرر کئے گئے تھے ۔ پہلا ہدف ان دہشت گرد گروہوں اور تنظیموں کے ٹھکانے ختم کرنے تھے جو علانیہ طور پر ریاست اور ملک کے خلاف بر سرپیکار تھے ۔

 

دوسرے مذہبی پیروکاروں سے اسلام کے بارے میں اپنے خیالات کو تبدیل کرنے کی اپیل کے ذریعہ ‘مسلم مخالف جذبات’ اور 'اسلامو فوبیا' کا مقابلہ کرنے کی کوشش کرنے کے بجائے مسلمانوں کو دوسروں کے تئیں اپنے خیالات اور اپنے رویوں میں تبدیلی پیدا کرنے کی ضرورت ہے۔ یہی ایک ایسا واحد راستہ ہے جس کے ذریعہ دوسرے لوگ اسلام اور مسلمانوں کے بارے میں اپنے خیالات کو بدلنے اور ان کے ساتھ اپنے رویے میں تبدیلی کی شروعات کر سکتےہیں۔ جسے قرآن نے خوبصورتی کے ساتھ اس آیت میں ذکر کیا ہے، ‘‘بیشک اﷲ کسی قوم کی حالت کو نہیں بدلتا یہاں تک کہ وہ لوگ اپنے آپ میں خود تبدیلی پیدا کر ڈالیں’’ (13:11)۔

 

‘‘اور تمہیں کیا ہے کہ تم اس (ذبیحہ) سے نہیں کھاتے جس پر (ذبح کے وقت) اﷲ کا نام لیا گیا ہے (تم ان حلال جانوروں کو بلاوجہ حرام ٹھہراتے ہو)؟ حالانکہ اس نے تمہارے لئے ان (تمام) چیزوں کو تفصیلاً بیان کر دیا ہے جو اس نے تم پر حرام کی ہیں، سوائے اس (صورت) کے کہ تم (محض جان بچانے کے لئے) ان (کے بقدرِ حاجت کھانے) کی طرف انتہائی مجبور ہو جاؤ (سو اب تم اپنی طرف سے اور چیزوں کو مزید حرام نہ ٹھہرایا کرو)۔ بیشک بہت سے لوگ بغیر (پختہ) علم کے اپنی خواہشات (اور من گھڑت تصورات) کے ذریعے (لوگوں کو) بہکاتے رہتے ہیں، اور یقینا آپ کا ربّ حد سے تجاوز کرنے والوں کو خوب جانتا ہے (6:119)’’۔

 

قد حرم الله تعالى في القرآن الكريم الميتة والدم ولحم الخنزير ولحم ما ذكر عليه اسم غير الله (2:173 ، 5:3 ، 6:118، 6:119) 6.  وحدد القرآن الكريم ظروف غير طبيعية لوفاة الحيوان التي من شأنها أن تجعل لحمه حراما وقد حظر اليانصيب أيضا (5:3). وفي قوله تعالى : (إِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةَ وَالدَّمَ وَلَحْمَ الْخِنزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ بِهِ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ ۖ فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ غَيْرَ بَاغٍ وَلَا عَادٍ فَلَا إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ) (2:173)

 

This rigid attitude has kept our country behind and continues to block our way to progress. We need to work harder to create a consensus to support women in leadership positions.  The more we see women in power the more people will get used to the fact that women are capable leaders. However, recruiting women to run for a local office is still a real challenge for our region. ....

 

Arab citizens are deeply disappointed with the Jewish left, Jewish Leftists are afraid of looking like “Arab-lovers” and anti-Zionists. The same has happened between the Israeli peace movement and the Palestinians in the occupied territories. Israeli leftists were afraid of looking unpatriotic.  After Yitzhak Rabin’s assassination, Palestinians felt that Israeli leftists were not much different from Israeli rightists. .....

 

Admittedly, it is too early to say if making Mullah Omar's death public at this stage, when it supposedly happened in April 2013, was aimed at making the militant movement more amenable to negotiations or to thwart the talks.....

 

In 20 to 30 years, both organizations will be led by the current generation, the product of intimate encounters between classical Islamic discourse and critical thinking, along with an engagement in efforts to improve the social and economic conditions of their communities.  The current generation has also had to deal with various influences, including that of the capital-rich Wahhabism. ….

 

If the Iran nuclear deal was an earthquake shaking the Middle East’s strategic landscape, one of the most dramatic aftershocks was the surprising arrival last month in Saudi Arabia of a high-level delegation from Hamas. The visit by the Islamist organization that rules Gaza is the latest sign of an about-face in Saudi policy, which is now seeking a rapprochement with the regional Muslim Brotherhood movement, to which Hamas belongs. Saudi Arabia has long been mistrustful of the Brotherhood.....

 

The vigilance of the elites of the Islamist movement during the turbulent years of Turkish democracy in the second half of 1970s protected Islamist organisations from using violent means. The reward for the Islamist political entrepreneurs was a less heavy-handed intervention in the Islamist movement and relatively undamaged political and social networks throughout 1980s and 1990s. One can also argue that there was a tacit approval of the Islamist politics by the new establishment of Turkey at the beginning of 1980s as a panacea to leftist movements. This, so to say, “selective pluralism” in Turkey created a virtual consensus between systemic actors and the Islamist movement.....\

 

The uneasy fact is that Islam is in desperate need of internal reforms that have been delayed to this point where the religion is being damaged from within causing serious identity crisis amongst the Muslim youth. And it is this very identity crisis that is at the core of radicalisation problem leading young Muslims to fall prey to terrorist propaganda joining Islamic State and other militant groups. As long as those at the helms of power in the Muslim community remain in constant denial blaming the government, the "environment"......

In the end, the biggest threat of the IS isn’t its pursuit of statehood but its cultivation of a global constituency of alienated and intolerant Muslims, mostly young, who assure the IS of an inexhaustible supply of fighters and operatives. Spread out in 80 countries, these have been seduced by the viral promise of a paradisal caliphate. If they can’t go to the Middle East to fight, they can wreak havoc on their own societies.....

 
Just War in the Quran
Louay Fatoohi

Of course, the development of the Christian concept Just War did not ensure that the wars and violence that Christians got involved met the definition and conductions of that concept. The same applies to the war and violent acts that Muslims conducted. But this schism between theory and practice applies to every concept that the human being has ever used....

 

 “In the voyage towards the Divine, one who travels without a guide needs two hundred years for a two days trip... Patiently search for your spiritual master for without his leading, this journey is filled with ordeals, hazards, and perils. Without the shelter of the spiritual master, one cannot annihilate the lower self. Hold firmly to the mantle of a genuine guide if you seek extermination of your deformed ego.”...
