Radical Islamism and Jihad

“Bangladeshi Mujahids, for example, may have volunteered to fight in the Afghan war against the Soviets. They may have tied up with Pak-based or ISI-sponsored outfits. Some have even worked under bin Laden’s al-Qaeda regime. But the Organization of Islamic States never forgave the Bengalis for breaking up an Islamic nation-state in 1971...

Considering Daesh’s major setbacks in Iraq and Syria, it is unlikely the group will stay in Afghanistan much longer. But it all depends on the continuous support of the international community for the ANDSF....

All but one of the four “Rightly-Guided Caliphs” who ruled immediately after Muhammad’s death were assassinated. The first dynasty of Islam, the Umayyads, came to power by usurping and killing various members of Muhammad’s family....

 

Ideologues like Baghdadi and Prabha­karan, intoxicated by early victories, forget that states are able to raise funds and armies, and buy arms at a level ragtag guerrilla forces simply can’t....

 

“There was a consciousness-raising,” said Mr. Laïdi of Sciences Po. “But there’s no xenophobia,” he said. “French society is extremely attached to individual liberty.”...

Although ISIS was paying off members of the Qaeda-linked cell for protection, Mr. al-Baghdadi was ultimately betrayed by one of the few people he trusted, American officials said.....

The insurgency produced ‘Al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia’, which morphed into the ‘Islamic State of Iraq’, and then in 2011 became the ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’....

 

His passing brings to mind the line spoken by Malcolm, one of the king’s sons in Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth, heralding the execution for treason of the traitorous Lord Cawdor, “Nothing in his life became him like leaving it”....

 

They felt more comfortable with Zia’s Islamic, status quo, orientation as opposed to Bhutto’s socialist rhetoric. Unfortunately, some sectarian groups, Sipah-i -Sahaba and Tehrik-i-Jafena also surfaced and flourished under Zia’s patronage...

Baghdadi was in US custody in Iraq in 2004, and in the prison camp he made some of the contacts that later formed the ISIL terrorist organization. The US at any one time held 25,000 Iraqi young men in camps on suspicion of trying to resist the US military occupation, brutalizing and further radicalizing them. ...

 

An online magazine catering to supporters of the Islamic State in Southeast Asia is not the first place you might expect to find a spread featuring an illustration of a pink flower. But there it was amid articles about beheadings and bombings in an issue last year of Al-Fatihin, or The Conquerors....

As its so-called caliphate expanded across large parts of Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group promised its followers an apocalyptic battle to come, a victory over the “crusader armies” that would usher in the day of judgment and birth a new world....

 

A North-South breakup of SF fatalities over the last nine years indicates that SF fatalities in North Balochistan – afflicted by Islamist terrorist formations – are consistently higher than South Balochistan – where rebel Baloch nationalist organisations operate....

 

Let us ponder over the Zahir and Nass related to the verse 9:5 “kill the Mushrikin wherever you find them”. This verse is Zahir in its commanding the believers to kill the Mushrikin wherever they are found, whereas this verse is Nass in its commanding the believers to fight against the religious persecutors and violators of peace-treaty in the state of war....

Trump deserves full credit for approving the operation that led to Baghdadi’s demise. It’s a shame the information that led to the raid apparently did not come to him before the tragic decision to abruptly pull U.S. Special Forces from much of northeastern Syria...

However, over the past few years, Moscow, Tehran and Beijing have warmed up to the Taliban. Obviously, they have both interests and apprehensions attached to the group and its state of war or peace....

 

A few months back, the Al Qaeda's head Ayman Al Zawahiri had released a message exhorting Muslim youth of Kashmir to wage jihad in Kashmir. Zawahiri considers himself the self-styled leader of Muslims whereas the reality is that Al Qaida is a terrorist organisation and the Islamic jurists have unanimously declared them Kharijites. Kharijites are the extremist Muslims who fought even Hazrat Ali (RA) and assassinated him, although they were a breakaway group of his own party...

The future of political Islam will depend on the extent to which the protesters achieve their goals through effective organization and prove able to persuade reluctant militaries to give up their power. Failure to achieve these results might resurrect a more hardened political Islam....

 

What uses can and should be made of the power and the forces that we still possess? How vigilant must we be—and against what new dangers? We owe it to ourselves, to the Kurds, to other like-minded friends and allies—and to the forgotten peoples of Darfur, Yemen, Somalia, and the Sahel—to answer these questions....

 

 The Islamic State of Medina was the ideal manifestation of coexistence, pluralism and diversity amongst humanity. What convinces people to believe in this self-created bogey is a distorted and twisted explanation of some of the verses of Quran, Ahadees of the Holy Messenger SAW, and some misquoted historic incidents....

 Fissiparous forces like the simmering Baloch resistance and the Pashtun Tahaffuz movement will remain thorny issues, which could develop adverse momentum if not handled with maturity….
