Al-Qaida’s Tape Announcing Formation of Qaiadat ul Jihad in South Asia   القاعدہ کا قیادت الجہاد کے قیام کا اعلان روضۂ رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے انہدام کی سازش کی پردہ پوشی ہے

حکومت ہند اس غلط فہمی میں بالکل نہ رہے کہ داعش یا القاعدہ کا ہندوستان میں اثر نہیں ہے بلکہ اس سچائی پر دھیان دے کہ ذہنی طور پر ایسی فکر اور ایسے عمل سے قربت رکھنے والے لوگ موجود ہیں اور وہ کسی کمان کے منتظر رہے ہیں اس لئے حکومت پر فرض ہوتا ہے کہ وہ سازش کو دیکھے ۔ ہم یہ دعویٰ کرنے میں ابھی تک بجا ہیں کہ ہندوستانی مسلمان عالمی جہاد کا حصہ نہیں ہے لیکن تین حالیہ چھوٹے چھوٹے واقعات اس طرح کا اشارہ کر رہے ہیں کہ ہم قصابوں سے کام نہیں لے سکتے…..حکومت اس غلط فہمی میں ہے کہ ہندوستان میں داعش یا القاعدہ کا وجود نہیں ہے، حالاں کہ ان تنظیموں کے حامی تیار کئے جا چکے ہیں اور انہیں کسی کمان میں لانے کی ضرورت کے تحت یہ اعلان کیا گیا ہے ۔ ہندوستان میں ایک غیر ملکی کٹر پنتی انتہاپسندانہ فکر نے آزادی کے بعد سے اب تک پے در پے بننے والی مرکزی اور صوبائی سرکاروں کی ملی بھگت سے اپنا بنیادی ڈھانچہ تیار کر لیا ہے ۔ اب صرف اسے متحرک کرنے کی ضرورت محسوس کی جا رہی تھی اور کسی ضرورت کی تکمیل کے لئے الظواہری ٹیپ آیا جس کے اوریجنل ہونے کی تصدیق بھی ہو چکی ہے۔ ستمبر  2013 میں حیدرآباد میں ایک جلسے میں لکھنؤ کی ایک دینی درسگاہ سے وابستہ عالم دین کی تقریر بھی محل نظر ہے اور وہ عوامی بیانات بھی جس میں بین الاقوامی سطح پر سرگرم انتہا پسندی کی کھلی حمایت کا مظاہرہ کیا گیا ہے…

ويأمر القرآن المسلمين بأن يحمدوا الله تبارك وتعالى الخالق والرحمن الرحيم. وهناك العديد من الآيات في القرآن الكريم التي تأمر الإنسان بحمد الله والثناء عليه خلال ساعات اليوم بصمت وبصوت عال. كما يطلب القرآن من المسلمين أن يذكروا الله تعالى في جميع الحالات - في الفرح والحزن، في الراحة والألم، في الترف والأزمة، في الغنى والفقر، في الحشد والعزلة. وينبغي أن لا تخلو لحظة واحدة من ذكره تعالى. القرآن يخبرنا أيضا أن في الجنة، سيغني سكانها غناء الحمد لله تعالى. عندما يلتقون بالسكان الآخرين، سيقولون "السلام عليكم" وعند مغادرتهم سيقولون الحمد لله. وهكذا كل من البداية والنهاية لكلامهم ستبدأ بحمد الله تعالى.

Need for the Establishment of Islamic System  اسلامی نظام کے قیام کی ضرورت اور اہمیت

اسلامی نظام کے منقرض ہونے کے بعد اُس دور کے علماء کے سامنے یہ مسئلہ درپیش ہوا کہ اللہ تعالیٰ کی اطاعت تو قرآن کے ذریعے کی جاسکتی ہے لیکن حضور صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی اطاعت کس طرح سر انجام دیں؟ مسلمان اگر خوش قسمت ہوتے، تو وہ اس اسلامی نظام کو دوبارہ جاری کردیتے اور اس نظام کی معرفت اللہ و رسول کی اطاعت ادا کردی جاتی، لیکن اس دور کے علماء سے یہ لغزش ہوئی کہ انہوں نے اسلامی نظام قائم کرنے کے بجائے ، رسول کی اطاعت کو روایات کی طرف منتقل کردیا اور اس طرح انہوں نے اسلامی نظام کے قیام کا دروازہ ہمیشہ ہمیشہ کے لئے بند کردیا اور اسی وجہ سے انہوں نے روایات کو بھی وحی الہٰی کا درجہ دے دیا لیکن چونکہ روایات وحی الہٰی نہیں ہیں ۔

Evin Prison in Tehran and the Rajai-Shahr Prison in Kavar have, additionally, been used by the Iranian state to hold members of the Gonabadi-Nimatullahi Sufi order. These Muslim contemplatives, with a history in Iran dating back centuries, and representing the largest public Sufi group in the country, have undergone an extraordinary campaign of suppression. Their intense persecution began in 2006 with the official destruction of a Sufi house of observance in the religious centre of Qom.......

Ban ISIS in India

The security agencies, particularly the NIA have been reportedly monitoring the social media. But why only the social media? A section of the Urdu media has been publishing material that projects the ISIS as the fulfilment of the aspirations of the Muslims by establishing the so called caliphate. It has been ignoring its brutalities and atrocities against Muslims and non-Muslims alike. ISIS has been perpetrating these atrocities in total violation of Islamic precepts of peace and compassion for humanity, but doing it in the name of enhancing the glory of Islam which in their view calls for dominating the whole world……

It Sounds Like We Are All ‘Reluctant Fundamentalists’
Nuray Mert

It sounds like we are all “reluctant fundamentalists” now - this is what the debate over the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has turned into in Turkey. It feels like if we condemn ISIL without finding excuses we will betray our religious identity, legitimize Western interventionism, or even whitewash Western imperialism. That is why it is not only the Turkish hostages in the hands of ISIL that prevent us from discussing the issue. In fact, the best way to challenge all sorts of interventionism - or any kind of Western meddling in regional politics - is to have an honest debate on radicalism and fundamentalism in the name of Islam……

Politics Must Play A Role in the Anti-ISIS War
Fareed Zakaria

Here we go again. The United States has declared war on another terrorist group. President Barack Obama’s speech Wednesday night outlined a tough, measured strategy to confront ISIS – which is a threat to the region and beyond. But let’s make sure in the execution of this strategy that we learn something from the 13 years since Sept. 11, 2001, and the war against Al-Qaeda. Here are a few lessons to think about……

Is the Islamic State Really ‘Not Islamic’?
Jonah Goldberg

As for its not being Islamic, that’s at best unclear, if not just clearly wrong. And the fact that the majority of its victims are Muslim is irrelevant. Lenin and Stalin killed thousands of Communists and socialists; that doesn’t mean Lenin and Stalin weren’t Communists and socialists. If such terrorists who kill Muslims aren’t Muslims, why do we give them Qurans when we imprison them?.....

Obama's Middle East Strategy
Beril Dedeoglu

Ankara cannot give open and vigorous military support against the IS, as our diplomats are still being held hostage. It may play, however, a tacit role in restructuring the Syrian opposition. Besides, it may facilitate the EU-NATO cooperation and give reassurances to Kurds in all parts of the region. In fact, Turkey's main contribution to the fight against the IS will be “tidying up” its own house. Obama believes his strategy will succeed in three years. Everybody has to do their part during this period if they don't want to be punished by Washington…..

The Life of a Kashmiri Woman: Dialectic of Resistance and Accommodation
Nyla Ali Khan

Even today, when the share of women in the Indian political space is negligible, with just 2 out of 87 members elected in the 2008 elections, Akbar Jehan appearing on the scene in the male dominated society of those times speaks volumes about her grit and competence. From breaking the myth about her having been married to Lawrence of Arabia to detailing how she virtually replaced Sheikh Abdullah in leading people during his incarceration, the book brings out some important aspects of Kashmiri history……

The Ahmedis of Pakistan: Where Is This Hatred Really Stemming From?
Zeeba T Hashmi

Where is this hatred really stemming from? There is so much of it that an important international Pakistani physicist, Nobel Prize winner Dr Abdus Salam, has been deprived of national recognition and pride because of his Ahmadi connection. They did not even spare the respect and sanctity of his gravestone. Instead of praising Dr Abdus Salam for his pivotal role in the field of Physics, schools across Pakistan mount portraits of Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan, the known plagiarist and convicted thief who is being presented as a national role model…..

What Does Zawahiri Really Want?
Jawed Naqvi

Now that Ayman al-Zawahiri, the current Al Qaeda chief, has expanded his focus to South Asia as the new theatre of his group’s evolving strategy, all concerned countries in the cross hairs need to perhaps sit up and ponder counter measures. South Asia’s capacity to cope with any major emergency has been shown as ordinary if not dismal. There are, of course, the all-knowing security pundits who would ignore or have already dismissed as far-fetched Zawahiri’s televised threat to India, Bangladesh and Burma, with Pakistan and Afghanistan already under his active gaze……

What we do know is that Turkey has clearly emerged as the front-line battle state against vicious al-Qaeda-type terror groups….

These charges, her family report, are “very serious”, and may result in significant jail time. Needless to say, her treatment is widely perceived as having everything to do with her status as a high-profile government critic, and very little with legitimate issues of law or justice….

The Saffron Dance: What Next?
Sidharth Bhatia

There are many similar songs in Hindi cinema — Man Tarpat Hari Darshan Ko Aaj from Baiju Bawra has a similar pedigree. Actors routinely play roles of characters from another religion. The secular character of the Hindi film industry is well known and is taken for granted. India’s traditional culture too is imbued with the same spirit; we don’t make a big deal of it. That very spirit that makes India what it is, a diverse land with a multitude of religions, ethnicities, languages and dialects. It has its fault lines and conflicts, but the character has survived centuries — whoever came here got absorbed into the larger whole. The phrase unity in diversity, often used by Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s enlightened and visionary first Prime Minister, was no cliché — it summed up the ethos of the nation. Despite provocations and crises, that ethos has survived……

Radical Clerics Misusing Islamic Literature, Particularly Hadith Traditions, to Further Nefarious Ends: Time for Mainstream Ulema to Wake Up and Refute!
Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

The extremist scholars are constantly on the lookout for all such Islamic texts that can be misused to serve their abhorrent designs. Al-Jazouli’s quoting the above-mentioned Hadith justifying wanton killing of civilians is not an isolated instance. Many more Takfiri-Wahhabi ideologues and militants have long been quoting and misinterpreting them. One such obnoxious instance was recently seen in a heated debate between a Pakistani army official and a Taliban scholar. Obviously, the Pakistan army official was not so well-versed in the Islamic sciences that he could theologically refute the TTP scholar’s filthy and nasty argument declaring all Pakistanis as Kafir (infidel) and thus justifying the murder of their women and children…. But the question remains: what responsibility does this disturbing phenomenon place on the mainstream moderate Ulema and Islamic scholars? Will they continue to remain silent onlookers at the brazen distortion of Islamic literature or take a courageous stance of refuting and rebutting it? Regrettably, while the extremists’ distortion and misrepresentation of the Qur’an and Sunnah are on the rise, we hardly find creditable and hard-hitting efforts to retort them on the sound and tenable theological grounds......

How to Make Homo Sapiens Even Better?  !انسانی نسل کو بہتر بنایا جا سکتا ہے
Asad Mufti

ہالینڈ کے ایک ممتاز سائنس دان ہنس لونت نے کہا ہے کہ بنی نوع انسان کی اصلاح کے لئے ضروری ہے کہ اب اس ’’علم ‘‘ کا از سر نو جائزہ لیا جائے۔‘‘انسانی نوع کی اصلاح کا علم‘‘کا مطلب ہے کہ جین(GENE) کے استعمال سے نسل انسانی کو بہتر بنایا جائے ۔سائنس دانوں کا یہ بھی کہنا ہے کہ اس علم سے فائدہ اٹھا کر بہتر سے بہتر انسان تخلیق کرنے میں کوئی حرج نہیں اور مستقبل میں لوگ ایسا کرنا چاہیں گے۔ اکیسویں صدی میں اس خیال کو گزشتہ صدی سے زیادہ قبولیت عام حاصل ہوئی ہے کہ جنیات کے ذریعے انسانی نسل کو بہتر بنایا جا سکتا ہے اور یہ کوئی پیچیدہ معاملہ یا خدا کے کاموں میںمداخلت نہیں تاہم 1930ء کی دہائی میں ’’نسل انسانی کی اصلاح‘‘ کا آئیڈیا کچھ زیادہ کامیاب نہ ہو سکا اور اس کی وجہ نازی جرمنی کو ٹھہرایا گیا۔

Lessons in the Fate of Failed Kings  شاہ جہاں وقت

Faith, Heredity and Conversion
Sultan Shahin, Editor New Age Islam

All that one needs to be a good Muslim in India is a king-sized ego.  A very negative ego. An ego that tells you that you belong to a chosen community, the Ummat-e-Muhammadi. While the rest of humanity will go to Hell, literally, no matter how many good deeds the non-Muslims do, you will go to Heaven eventually, no matter how many evil deeds you do. If you are evil and a Muslim all that you need fear is a brief stint in Hell. The  fact  that you  belong  to the community of God's beloved  Prophet  Muhammad will  ensure that you eventually reach Heaven where you  will  be allowed  to  indulge in all the pleasures that are  forbidden  on earth. You can drink as much wine as you want. You can fornicate with as many women as you want. Indeed God is reduced to a supplier of wine and women for the Muslim residents of Heaven.  Such a view has nothing to do with Islam. But it has  not  been difficult  to  spread  this outlook among  the  ignoramuses  that constitute  the  overwhelming majority of Muslims.....
