سرسید کے بارےمیں دوسری بات یہ کہی جاتی ہے کہ انہوں نے مسلمانوں کوذلت و پستی سےنکالا اور ان میں تعلیم عام کی ان کے اس کارنامے کو بھی مبالغے کےساتھ پیش کیا جاتا ہے دراصل مسلمانوں کو پستی کا تصور ڈبلیو ہنٹر کی کتاب ‘‘ہمارے ہندستانی مسلمان’’ نے دیااس میں بنگال کے مسلمانوں کی پستی اور جہالت کاذکر ہے لیکن بعدمیں اس کو یورپی کے مسلمانوں پر لاگو کردیا ۔ جبکہ یوپی کے مسلمان پورے ہندوستان میں سب سے زیادہ تعلیم یافتہ اور معاشی طور پر خوشحال تھے اور تعلیم کےمیدان میں ہندوؤں سےبھی آگے تھے یہی حال سرکار ی ملازمتوں کا تھا ۔

 

What happens when two opposing cultures meet up, one based on permissive Western values and the other on repressive Islamic doctrine? If the latest news out of Germany is any indication, the latter wins.....

 

Does this mean that Erdoğan’s Turkey is on the same side with ISIL against the Syrian Kurds? There are many who readily say “yes” to this question these days, but I think they are wrong. They are also dead wrong to condemn Turkey as a “terrorist” state, assuming that it supports ISIL. Because, no, Turkey does not support ISIL, and there is no evidence to believe so…..

 

This ‘womanless’ world, one that the country’s men seem to want to create, by harassing and constraining, banning and eliminating, raping and disrespecting, would be a good fate for them. Those that plan and plot and kill girls before they are born, who imagine their hushed act as having no consequences, would face the collective catastrophe brought on by a million others that thought the same. In the meantime, many unborn girls of Pakistan are at risk or probably, gone girls....

 

Across West Asia, there is a sense of deep distress at the pervasive chaos, violence and destruction, and pessimism about the future. Not only are states like Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya in the throes of civil conflict and anarchy and unlikely to be put together again, the ISIS continues to prosper, with a presence in a dozen states and increasing declarations of support from several other Jihadi groups in South and West Asia and North Africa.....

 

For ISIL, sectarian identities are easily manipulated. One of the reasons the militants of ISIL so dislike the borders of nation states – one of their first acts a year ago after declaring a new "caliphate" was to claim they had destroyed the borders of Sykes-Picot – is that these borders offer an alternative allegiance for disaffected Iraqis and Syrians.  Though they frame their antipathy in the language of anti-colonialism and Islamic history, it is a rather more mundane psychological idea that guides their strategy….

 

And by the way, Muslim soldiers stationed at Wazirabad Cantonment in British times used to help their Hindu colleagues in staging Ramlila every year. Lakshman, Vibhishan and Ravana’s roles were sometimes played by them. And once, hold your breath; Sita’s part was enacted by a handsome Muslim sepoy. Ramzan is the right occasion to savour such revelations in Haji Mian’s company when the feasting begins after sundown around the illuminated Jama Masjid.....

 

But Rezgui had recently been radicalised and Salhi had been on a watch list in the past. That these massacres, as well as the suicide bombing of a mosque in Kuwait, were seemingly perpetrated in the name of religion, however, only underlines once again that it is more essential than ever that the true Islam – moderate, tolerant and peaceful – asserts itself and makes its presence in the world known more and more loudly…..

 

The blowback by entrenched interests in Syria and Egypt against popular Arab revolutions destroyed governance and societal cohesion, resulting in internecine bloodletting, rule by warlords and radical Islamic groups like the IS, al-Qaeda and its clones, the redrawing of borders and the breakdown of the region’s tolerant cultural ethos....

 

The ISIS caliphate’s so-called Quranic rule is more repressive than what Sunnis currently endure in authoritarian countries, but it offers a mythical release from daily problems by preaching that a ‘pure’ religious state is infallible since God is on its side. Its devilish birthday resolution will be to enjoy many happy returns by ensuring that the three crises of geopolitics, masculinity and governance are perpetuated......

 

Muslim scholars, political leaders and civic society must emphasize the pluralistic message of the Quran and urgently address the pervasive exclusivist attitude among many Muslims. Neglecting the pluralistic message of the Quran has allowed fringe groups to use anachronistic stereotypes about fellow Muslims, people of other faiths and entire nation-states, to unleash a form of violence rooted in extreme interpretations of Islamic eschatology….

Recently, the dead body of a man was prevented from being buried in a Muslim graveyard in a village near Saharanpur in India. Now a man was beaten up for skipping Friday prayers in a village called Pathanpurva in Bahraich district. ….

जिन एक सौ बत्तीस बच्चों को वहशी वहाबी दरिंदों ने पेशावर के आर्मी पब्लिक स्कूल में मार डाला, उनमें नर्सरी की मासूम खोला भी थी। उसके मां-बाप उन एक सौ बत्तीस वालदैन जोड़ों में शामिल थे, जिन्हें अपने बच्चों के बदन से खून में लिथड़ी पोशाक उतार कर कफन पहनाने थे। मां पुकारती रही, लेकिन अल्लाह के आठ सिपाहियों ने अपना ‘जिहाद’ पूरा करने की सनक में खोला अल्ताफ और एक दिन पहले बनी उसकी नन्हीं सहेलियों को मार डाला।......

ہندوستان میں ایسٹ انڈیا کمپنی کا عروج ہندوستان کی سیاست میں انتشار اور ناانصافی کی وجہ سے تھا کمپنی نے اس سیاسی صورت حال سے فائدہ اٹھایا اور آہستہ آہستہ اپنے اقتدار کو یہاں تک بڑھایا کہ مغل بادشاہ بھی اس وظیفہ خوار ہوگیا ۔ اس پورے عرصے میں ہندوستان کےحکمراں طبقے نے خود کو انتہائی نا اہل اور نالائق ثابت کیا ان میں نہ تو اتنی فراست تھی کہ وہ کمپنی کی بڑھتی ہوئی طاقت دیکھ کر سیاسی نشیب و فراز کا اندازہ لگا لیتے اورنہ ہی ان میں اتنی دانش مندی تھی کہ وہ آپس کے جھگڑوں کو ختم کرکےاپنی سیاسی حیثیت کو مضبوط کرلیتے ۔

 

ومع ذالك ، فإن التصريحات القرآنية تذكرة واضحة للبشر كله بما في ذلك الأقوياء الذين يؤدون إلى الأضرار الجانبية والكوارث البشرية من خلال إجراءاتهم أو قراراتهم . وعلى الرغم من أن مواقفهم الزمنية والكنسية أو الرسمية قد تنجيهم من أي محاكمة زمنية أو العقاب ، فإنهم لا يمكن أن يهربوا من عقاب الله تعالى.

 

Defenders of the government often suggest that its critics believe western foreign policy alone is at the heart of radicalisation. The reason for it is undoubtedly a complex interaction of different factors. My fear is that current government policy will seal the mouths of Muslim pupils, leaving them feeling unable to open up for fear of the consequences: a satisfactory outcome for extremists and nobody else…..

 
A Helpless World against a Group of Bigots

One wonders why the Jihadis tend to become more active during Ramadan. Only a few days ago, they had urged their followers 'to make Ramadan a month of calamities for the non-believers', but their targeting a Shia mosque in Kuwait suggest that it is not only the 'non-believers' that they are after and that they have extended the scope of the definition of 'non-believers' and have taken the war to the doors of those they consider as apostates.....

While the Hanafi Fiqh asserts that homosexuality doesn’t warrant physical punishment, and the Hanbali and Shafi schools call for harsher penalties, all Islamic schools of thought dub homosexuality ‘unnatural’ and ‘perverted deviation’ worthy of being punished......

 

The Kuwaiti Sunni response in the aftermath of this attack has served as a powerful rejoinder to the persistent primordial assumptions of "ancient-sectarian hatred" as something that is integral to the region, existing since time immemorial.  ....

 

The image of ISIS female militants is changing because the roles they play within the insurgency have evolved. Though female militants in Raqqa pose carrying weapons and dream of being martyrs, the narrative that surrounds them is full of references to food, love, poetry, marriage, and cleaning; images which reflect the celebration of these women and their daily lives rather than their immorality....

 

Ethnic and tribal divisions are likewise the playthings of ISIS. They delight in pitting Arab against Kurd for example, even Kurd against Kurd. It was Kurdish members of ISIS who led the attack on Kobane. ISIS has a tribal affairs department and it is not to build harmony and peaceful relations. ISIS and like-minded groups are a threat, a very real one but it certainly does not require a World War III to end the threat....

 

When Western governments expel extremist preachers, shut down suspicious institutions or pursue religious groups, they are protecting Muslims from extremists among them, and from the anger of the non-Muslim majority. We must not look at such measures as racist....

 

Over a period of time, the books written by Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Kathir, Hasan Banna, Qutub, Maududi and their likes have been unfortunately equated with Quran. While Quran is eternal guidance, their work was a product of their times, and whatever they wrote was  a knee jerk reaction to the tough situations they were dealing with, and certainly lacked the universalism of God and the Prophet that Quran preaches, both were referred to as God of the Universe and Mercy to the Universe respectively.....
