    डॉक्टर ज़वाहिरी, आपने कुरआन की एक विशिष्ट संदर्भ वाली आयत का हवाला देकर मुसलमानों को गुमराह करने की कोशिश की है, और एक ऐसी कुरआनी हिदायत में विस्तार पैदा करने की कोशिश की है जो स्पष्ट रूप से उस एक ख़ास जमात के हक़ में नाज़िल हुई थी जो इस्लाम के पैगम्बर सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम के साथ जंग के लिए तैयार थीl पिछले पांच छः सौ सालों से अनेकों उलेमा यही कहते हुए आए हैं कि इन आयतों को उसी संदर्भ में देखा जाना चाहिए जिसमें उनका नुज़ूल हुआ थाl

    The objective of maintaining peace, inherent in such Ahadith, must be instilled into the minds of the present 21st century Muslims. To achieve this objective in modern times, they need to first understand it that those who live under a particular government, corrupt, unjust or truly democratic, they are required to obey the ruling government and live peacefully....

     

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Dr Ayman al-Zawahiri, you should have sought to understand the philosophy of Kashmiriyat that reigns in Kashmir before writing your latest missive. The Muslims of Kashmir have traditionally understood the message of Islam much better than the fundamentalists and exclusivists who present Islam as a totalitarian, fascist, political ideology of world domination, which seeks to eliminate all the scores of religions sent by God before Prophet Mohammad. This is the reason why even those Kashmiri politicians who now advocate secession have contested elections for the legislative Assemblies constituted under India’s secular and progressive constitution. This is the reason why only a few Kashmiri youth have taken to the path of terror, which you call Jihad. Most of the terrorism seen in the state of Jammu and Kashmir has been part of a proxy war waged by neighbouring Pakistan for its own ends. Pakistan, of course, has turned export of terrorism to a fine art, affecting all corners of the globe....

    ڈاکٹر ظواہری، آپ نے قرآن کریم کی ایک مخصوص سیاق و سباق والی آیت کا حوالہ دیکر مسلمانوں کو گمراہ کرنے کی کوشش کی ہے، اور ایک ایسی قرآنی ہدایت میں تعمیم پیدا کرنے کی کوشش کی ہے جو واضح طور پر اس ایک خاص جماعت کے حق میں نازل ہوئی تھی جو پیغمبر اسلام صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم کے ساتھ برسر پیکار تھی۔ گزشتہ پانچ چھ سو سالوں سے بےشمار علمائے کرام یہی کہتے ہوئے آئے ہیں کہ ان آیات کو اسی تناظر میں دیکھا جانا چاہئے جس میں ان کا نزول ہوا تھا ۔ آپ نے ایک ایسے مسئلہ میں کشمیر کے لوگوں کو گمراہ کرنے کی اپنی کوشش میں ایک ضعیف اور موضوع حدیث کا حوالہ بھی پیش کیا ہے جسے آپ جیسے لوگ غزہ ہند سے تعبیر کرتے ہیں ۔ آپ سے کہیں زیادہ مستند سعودی سلفی عالم دین شیخ محمد صالح المنجد نے ان تینوں اسناد کو کہ جن کے ذریعہ ہندوستانی برصغیر کی فتح کے بارے میں یہ حدیث ہم تک پہنچی ہے ، ضعیف یامدلس قرار دیا ہے۔ امام بخاری یا امام مسلم جیسے کسی بھی بڑے محدث نے اس حدیث کو اپنی کتابوں میں نقل نہیں کیا ہے۔ کوئی بھی سنجیدہ عالم اپنی بات کی تائید میں اس طرح کی حدیث نقل نہیں کرے گا۔

    بارہا یہ دیکھا گیا ہے کہ لوگ قرآن کے خلاف کوئی اصول وضع کر لیتے ہیں یا کوئی دینی نظریہ قائم کر لیتے ہیں اور جب اس پر مواخذہ کیا جاتا ہے تو ان کا جواب ہوتا ہے کہ ہم اس نتیجے پر علم و تحقیق کے ایک غیر جانب دار اور فطری طریقہ کار (Natural process) کے ذریعہ پہونچے ہیں ۔ لیکن قرآن کہتا ہے کہ کچھ ایسے لوگ بھی ہیں جن کے دلوں میں شیطان غلط باتوں کی القاء کرتا ہےاور انہیں ہدایت سے ہٹا کر گمراہی کے راستے پر لاکر کھڑا کر دیتا ہے…….

    National interest and foreign policy was “dearer” to Pakistan than the actual objectives of jihad, according to Bhat.

    Cooperating with ISIS or any other “Islamist” terror outfits is forbidden and an act of severe oppression.

    Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Denying freedom of religion to Muslims and ex-Muslims, not to speak of non-Muslims, indeed has a long and gory history. The Quranic dictum (2: 256) la ikraha fid Deen [Let there be no compulsion in religion] did not leave an impact beyond the life of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh). Forcible conversions started with the first Caliph Hazrat Abu Bakr (RA) fighting Ridda (apostasy) wars against the tribes who had left Islam after the demise of the Prophet. They were all brought back to the fold of Islam or killed. Similar is the case of Khwarij in the time of the fourth caliph Hazrat Ali (RA) and beyond to neo-Khwarij today, also known as Wahhabi or Salafi.  These groups mostly kill Muslims whom they consider “heretics” including Shias and Ahmadis....

    Do Not Repeat the Mistakes of 1989 in Allowing the Return of Taliban, New Age Islam Editor Sultan Shahin Asks International Community at UNHRC in Geneva

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....
