पहली बात यह है कि हालांकि जेहादियत वहाबियत और सल्फियत की एक कट्टरपंथी शाख है, फिर भी अंतर्राष्ट्रीय समुदाय की तरफ से वहाबी और सल्फी विचारधारा के अलमबरदारों को पुरे विश्व में मुस्लिम समाज के अन्दर वहाबी विचारधारा की प्रचार प्रसार में लाखों डालर खर्च करने की अनुमति प्राप्त है।दूसरी बात, हाल ही में हमने एक वहशतनाक दृश्य का सामना किया लेकिन अंतर्राष्ट्रीय समुदाय की ओर से इस पर कोई भी विरोधी आवाज़ बुलंद नहीं की गई, और वह यह कि संयुक्त राष्ट्र के नामज़द आतंकवादी (जिसके सिर पर 10 मिलियन डालर का इनाम है) ने एक राजनीतिक पार्टी का प्रारम्भ किया और एक दुसरे अमेरिका के नामज़द आतंकवादी को पकिस्तान में लोकतांत्रिक चुनाव लड़ने के लिए नामज़द किया। जाहिर है कुछ देश संयुक्त राष्ट्र के निर्देश को बिना किसी डर के अनदेखा कर सकते हैं।


مسلمانوں کے درمیان مردوں کے حتنہ کا معاملہ اس کی ایک مثال ہے۔ کیوں کر یہ غیر معقول عمل اب تک مسلم معاشرے میں مروج ہے اور اس کی ضرورت پر کوئی گفتگو بھی نہیں کی جاتی؟ اب خواتین کے ختنہ پر پابندی کے بارے میں کچھ باتیں کی جا رہی ہیں جو کہ افریقہ کے مسلم معاشرے اور دنیا بھر میں بوہرا میں مروج ہے۔ اور یہ ایک اچھی پیش رفت ہے کہ کچھ خواتین نے اس طرح کے خوفناک عمل کے خلاف اپنی آوازوں کو بلند کرنا شروع کردیا ہے جسے بجا طور پر عورتوں کا مثلہ قرار دیا گیا ہے۔ لیکن جب مسلم لڑکوں کے مثلہ کی بات آتی ہے تواس سلسلے میں اب بھی لوگوں کے درمیان حیرت انگیز خاموشی کا منظر ہے۔

The Centre for Constitutional Rights, rejected CACI's argument on torture - not only dismissing their discussion that individual tactics of abuse cannot constitute torture, but also critiquing the notion that what the plaintiffs endured - among other things being punched, slapped, kicked, doused with hot water, forced into stress position for hours, threatened with dogs, stepped on, etc over protracted periods of time, did not have a cumulative impact amounting to torture and subsequent trauma....


The Human Rights Watch report demonstrates that Afghan fighters younger than 18 have died in Syria, and it sheds new light on the recruitment of Afghan Shiites to fight in Syria, where Iran backs the Syrian government in a multisided war. Iran is home to many Afghans, who have travelled there to work or as refugees fleeing conflict in their country. Human rights groups have long expressed concern that vulnerable Afghan refugees are being pressured by the Iranian authorities to fight in Syria....


Who is still waging revolution in the Arab world? Not the Islamists, who have trapped themselves in violence or extremism. Not the left-wing elites, now aging, disarmed and discredited after the debacle of their nationalist movements. Not the young bloggers who were at the forefront of various uprisings of the Arab Spring: They are held back, sometimes frozen, by intimidation or censorship...

Two women. Close neighbours. Both powerful and influential. Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and Bangladesh Prime Minister Begum Sheikh Hasina are the women under focus of the world at present. Despite having too many things in common they are different in several ways. ....


Requesting Imam Hussain to let him fetch water, he fought his way to the banks of the Euphrates, and despite the scorching heat of the Iraqi desert and the toll the battle had taken on him, he refused to drink until the women and children were satiated. However, as he was returning to the Hussaini camp, Hazrat Abbas was ambushed by the Syrians, who were under orders to prevent water from reaching Imam Hussain. The enemy cut off both his hands, and upon finding Hazrat Abbas wounded Imam Hussain is quoted to have said, “My spine is broken”.....


Though animal consumption was and is allowed today, the rules regarding the treatment and proper slaughter of livestock to be considered Zabihah Halal (the ritual slaughter of meat) clearly indicates a value system in which animals were to be treated with dignity, allowed to live in their natural state, dispatched with as much care as can be given, and consumed infrequently. The Quran itself is full of poetic verses praising the biodiversity of the natural world and the complexity of life that modern day scientists are still discovering.....


At a basic level, Muslims and Catholics are monotheists, or people who share belief in the notion of one God. Alongside Judaism, Islam and Catholicism have their theological and spiritual roots in Genesis, the first part of the Old Testament which shares the story of Abraham, the founder of monotheism....

Gandhi Jayanti – 2 October, the date of Mohandas K. Gandhi’s birth in 1869 and the International Day of Nonviolence – offers an opportunity to reflect on human violence and to ponder ways to end it. There may be a fast way to end human violence but, if there is, Gandhi did not know it. Nor do I. Nor does anyone else that I have read or asked either. But this does not mean there is no way to end human violence....


In sum, the populist model of Zakat in this era is liable to gross manipulation or rationalistic interpretation by the rich, who can become richer and richer without sharing their wealth with the poor in any substantive way. This has created virtually an Islamic Capitalism that frustrates the Qur’anic message on social justice, and widens wealth gap and income disparity between the rich and the poor in practically all Muslim countries. Hence, there is an urgent need to redefine the base and arithmetic of Zakat to bring it in line with the economic order of this era…..


Long after a gunman opened fire from the top story of the Mandalay Bay hotel on Sunday night, killing more than 50 people and injuring at least 200, people in dusty, blood-stained T-shirts and jeans were still jogging away from the scene. Flashing red and blue lights from countless ambulances and police cars nearly outshone the casino towers on the Strip. At the Rebel gas station behind the MGM Grand, survivors stood teary-eyed and shocked....

केस से यह सिद्ध होता है कि आल इण्डिया मुस्लिम पर्सनल ला बोर्ड और उलेमा ने शाह बनों मामले से सबक नहीं सीखा हैl। तीन तलाक को बिदअत और कुरआन करीम की शरीअत के विरुद्ध और अवांछित माना जाता है। लेकिन इसके बावजूद हमारे उलेमा इसको खुद अवैध करार देने के लिए तैयार नहीं हैं। हालाँकि मुस्लिम महिलाएं और उनके संगठन इसकी मांग कर रही हैं।l क्या वह मुसलमानों के उपर अल्लाह के और भी गज़ब के प्रतीक्षित हैं? क्या उनकी नज़र दीवार पर लिखी हुई उस तहरीर पर नहीं पड़ती कि अगर वह अपनी महिलाओं को न्याय देने के लिए खुद को नहीं बदलते और अपनी सुधार नहीं करते तो वह तबाह हो जाएँगे? यह एक शर्मनाक बात है कि इस केस को न्याय के लिए अदालतों में जाना पड़ा था और आल इण्डिया मुस्लिम पर्सनल ला बोर्ड इस समस्या को आल इण्डिया वीमेंस पर्सनल ला बोर्ड और भारतीय मुस्लिम महिला आंदोलन के साथ वार्ता से हल न कर सकाl


قرآن نے اس بات کی تصدیق کی ہے کہ اسلام میں ضمیر کی آزادی بغیر کسی قید کے مطلق ہے۔ "مذہب میں جبر و اکراہ کی کوئی گنجائش نہیں ہے" اور "پرامن کافروں کے لئے ان کا راستہ ہے اور ہمارے لئے ہمارا راستہ" بنیادی اصول ہیں۔ مذہبی بنیادوں پر ظلم و ستم کے خلاف اپنی لڑائی میں نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وآله وسلم نے کبھی بھی اس اصول سے سمجھوتہ نہیں کیا ہے۔ پیغمبر اسلام ﷺ کی جنگ کافروں اور کفر سے نہیں تھی بلکہ اللہ کا دین قائم کرنے کے لئے  مذہبی بنیاد پر ظلم و ستم کرنے والوں سے تھی ، جس میں جبر و تشدد کی کوئی گنجائش نہ ہو اور لوگ کسی بھی مذہب پر عمل کرنے کے لئے آزاد ہوں۔


"The consequences of introducing or enacting anti-Muslim laws extend beyond the conspicuous intent to subvert Muslim Americans' citizenship and civil liberties, as has been demonstrated by the rise of anti-Sharia rallies that swept across the US in June of this year,"...


Despite all those counterweights and brake mechanisms, the sweeping Turkish and Iranian fury against Kurdish statehood makes it difficult to predict what will happen down the road. It seems, however, that Barzani will refrain from going a step further. He is expected to put on his pragmatist’s hat and embark on efforts to soothe the anger of his neighbours, which has haunted Kurdistan for decades...


While most states (the powerful ones and those who aspire to be so) dither and weigh their options essentially from myopic national interest perspectives, people around the world, guided by the principles of justice and human dignity, find it revolting that the Burmese state continues to pursue its genocidal agenda with near impunity...


Young boys danced, women ululated, teenagers climbed trees, cars and rooftops, and chanting crowds waved yellow Fatah flags and the red, white and blue flag of Egypt. Seated in the shadow of a vendor’s cart, Naama Tluli, 72, said she was overjoyed. “I want to fly in the sky,” she said. “If I could, I’d go to the West Bank.”...


Western officials may imagine that they have a hold over Syria by holding reconstruction funding hostage to having their way with Syria’s future: if this is so, they will as wrong about this as they have been on almost everything pertaining to Syria....


Why then the very high profile public, media and litigious campaign? Not because it has any possibility of success, but because it feeds perfectly into the wider Hindutva discourse and its polarising politics. This is no different from the periodic and high-decibel broadsides launched against illegal Bangladeshi migrants; despite over nine years of BJP-led government (six under Atal Behari Vajpayee and well over three under the present regime), nothing of significance has been done on this issue. But its electoral yield has been significant....
