    Europe's Turkish Awakening
    Burak Bekdil

    None of the incidents that forcefully point to Europe's "Turkish awakening" happened out of the blue. At the beginning of February, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Erdogan held a tense meeting in Ankara. Erdogan clearly rejected Merkel's mention of "Islamist terror" on grounds that "the expression saddens Muslims because Islam and terror cannot coexist."...

    Ever since Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan survived the July 2016 coup attempt, he appears to have lost his sense of diplomacy, his statecraft and arguably even his mental equilibrium. This is visible in ample measure in the insecure President’s body language and rhetoric in the wake of a diplomatic row snowballing into a major crisis before the referendum he is seeking from the Turks, both within and outside Turkey...

    If Not the UN Charter, Muslim Countries Should At Least Follow the Holy Quran  على الدول الإسلامية اتباع القرآن الكريم،  يقوله سلطان شاهين للجنة حقوق الإنسان في جنيف

    وبالمثل، فإن الأدب الذي يكره الكراهية لا يزال يدرس في المدارس الدينية وغير الدينية في البلدان الإسلامية في جميع أنحاء العالم، بما في ذلك في الغرب. وتواصل الكتب المدرسية السلفية السعودية تعليم كراهية الأجانب للطلاب المسلمين في جميع أنحاء العالم. ويقال لهم، على سبيل المثال، أنه لا ينبغي لهم أن يعملوا لغير المسلمين ولا يوظفوا غير المسلمين إذا كانت هناك خيارات أخرى. مصطلح "غير مسلم" للكتب المدرسية السعودية يعني جميع غير السلفيين وغير الوهابيين، بما في ذلك المسلمين من الطوائف الأخرى، وخاصة المسلمين ذوي الاتجاه الصوفي. الهجمات على الأضرحة الصوفية مثلما وقعت مؤخرا في السند، باكستان، مما أسفر عن مقتل ما يقرب من مائة الزوار وإصابة 250 بجروح هي نتيجة طبيعية لهذه التعاليم السلفية السعودية.

    What Explains BJP’s Win in UP

    While reams of paper have been wasted arguing the positives and negatives of demonetization, what escaped the analysts’ attention was that this was never a move about black money or to positively influence the economic order. It was a thorough political move aimed at transforming Modi into an icon of the poor. While we all saw the recalibration of ATMs to accommodate new notes, what we missed was the simultaneous recalibration of Modi’s image as the messiah of the poor. Politics is about perceptions and till the time Modi is seen as hurting the interests of the rich, he will remain the darling of the masses....

    Attacking Sufism
    Maria Sartaj

    Sufism allows one to have their own unique spiritual experience, in its true essence it never judges; I’ve experienced chants by Hindus at Ajmer Sharif who cried ‘Gharib Nawaz Ki Jai Ho’ in ecstasy and it was as powerful as any other statement of allegiance. One doesn’t become a Sufi just by listening to Coke Studio; it is rather a way of life and a submission to divine power that brings peace to the soul.

    The Psychology of Denial
    Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

    This fear/delusion combination arises because, in the emotional sense, the person probably does have 'very little'. If a person is denied their emotional needs as a child, they will often learn to regard material possessions as the only measure of value in the quality of their life. And because material possessions can never replace an emotional need, no amount of material wealth can ever feel as if it is 'enough'....

It is the murder of an idea and of a practice which for centuries together has remained an essential ingredient of being a south Asian Muslim. It is a murder of fusion: of lifestyles, cultures, sharing and peaceful coexistence. Mere condemnation is not going to do. It must become an opportunity for deeper soul searching within the Muslim community...

    India’s First Education Minister Maulana Abul KalamAzad, A Fervent Nationalist and Progressive Islamist, Rejected the Exclusivist, Islam Supremacist view of Other Indian Ulema
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    One of the fervent advocates of nationalism, secularism, religious diversity and dialogue, among the Indian ulema and Islamic thinkers, was Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. This celebrated freedom-fighter and the first education minister of independent India was also an Islamic mystic or Sufi in his thought and practice.  … In Tarjuman al-Quran, for instance, Maulana Azad writes in his explanation of the famous Qur’anic verses 45:27-29: “Despite the theological positions diametrically different from Islam, the Qur'an does suggest that there is hope for the salvation of Jews and Christians on the Last Day. Distinct communities will be judged according to "their own book" [Qur'an 45:27-29] and: "Those who believe [in the Qur'an], and those who follow the Jewish, and the Christians, and the Sabians, any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve" (Qur'an 2:62).

    Murdering Amjad Sabri of the Sabri Brothers: These murderers and only these murderers of divinity are the true enemies of Islam
    Khaled Abou El Fadl

    Without conscience, they murder divinity itself when they kill human beings who are, regardless of faith or creed, nothing but bearers of the divinity of their Maker. These are the true radical extremists. They and only they are the true enemies of Islam.... The truth is that they, just like al-Qaeda, ISIL (also known as ISIS), Boko Haram, and of course their theological "teachers", methodically and systematically destroy everything beautiful in Islam. They target and destroy the artefacts and historical sites that defy their pedantic and false sense of history.

    From Indian Mujahidin to ISIS: What Explains the Transformation
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Merely hoping that Indian Muslim youth would not get attracted to ISIS ideology is wishful thinking or another way of saying that the problem does not exist in India. But this is hardly the case: …Waging jihad against the perceived persecution of Muslims is no longer the key tenet, rather, driving away shirk (2) and polytheism as a religious duty is what comes across in these videos. The grievance of these youths is transformed from a contextual perception of alleged violence against Muslims (as in the Indian Mujahidin email of 2008) to something which is de-contextualised and purely a scriptural command to wage war against the infidels till no Fitna (3) remains. This seems to be the contribution of Salafi ISIS ideology which they are now fully embedded into: ‘scriptures speak for themselves; they do not have a context and there is no need for a contextual reading of Islamic scripture.’

    A large part of the diatribe in this video is also reserved for the Indian Ulema. Called as Ulema e Suu (false or evil scholars), they are attacked for not telling the Muslim masses the true teachings of Islam. This true teaching of Islam, according the ISIS video is that Islam is a religion of war rather than a religion of peace. An average Indian Alim is thus held guilty for teaching that Islam is a religion of peace. … One can only hope that a response to this video will come from the Indian Muslim community, particularly the Ulema. So far their silence has only meant that perhaps they have nothing to say. Or is it that sections of the Ulema themselves are convinced of the veracity of what ISIS has to say about Islam? ...

    To be fair the Ulama agree that triple talaq in one sitting is not the best way to give divorce. However, it seems clear to me that they have a problem with the state doing away with this practice. The courts itself, in the eyes of these Ulama, do not know Islamic law, but the worst fear seems to be that non-Muslim would be sitting in judgment over what is perceived to be a solely Islamic issue. This again is the pernicious exclusivism practiced when it comes to the Muslim religious establishment.

    Deoband and Theological Anti-Pluralism: A Critique of Husain Ahmad Madani’s ‘Islam and Composite Nationalism’
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    In order to make this transition from plurality to pluralism, Madani would have to forgo his own notion of superiority of Islam over other religions. This he is clearly unwilling to do. Islam for him is the only true religion and it is this conviction which leads him to claim that, ‘while being aware of the truth of their (other religions’) falsehood’, Islam is ready to ‘cooperate and tolerate’ them. In other words, Madani not only disqualifies and derogates other religions as being false, he is also of the view that, ultimately, Hindustan be Islamised: that the Hindu–Muslim entente (composite nationalism) is only required till the time people of this country do not become Muslims (Jab Tak Hindustan Ke Tamam Baashinde Mussalman Nahin Ho Jate). Such a notion hardly augurs well for any kind of pluralism….

    Although, Madani accepts that Muslims in India already cooperate with ‘non-Muslims’ on a number of civic and non-religious issues, his plea is that this temporal cooperation should not be confused with any kind of religious co-operation. Even the ‘compositeness’ of his nationalism is not an end in itself. In his own words, this composite nationalism is ‘temporary and special’ and is only required till the ‘light of true religion (read Islam) dispels its (India’s) darkness’. Shedding further light on his ‘special’ and ‘temporary’ concept, Madani elucidates that ‘composite nationalism is needed only till such time different communities (Aqwaam, sng. Qaum) and different religions exist in a country. When the entire nation becomes Muslim (which is the prime real aim: Jo Ki Awwaleen Maksad Hai), where is the need for it?’ It is very clear, therefore, that for Madani, even diversity, (forget pluralism) holds no merit of its own, rather its advocacy is strategically needed only for such time till Islam becomes the sole hegemonic religion of India. ….

    Hardly any impact is made by rebuttals of the ISIS’ jihadist theology by the world’s anti-extremist Islamic thinkers. The voluminous global anti-terror fatwas have left no practical impression, though they were in-depth and very critical. … Islamic scholars should think seriously why they are being so ineffective. Ulema must introspect if they are themselves “downplaying or underestimating the theologically-based narratives which underpin the ideology of the extremists,” as Dr Tahirul Qadri put it....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam
    If Islam Means Peace, Why Is Much Of Its Theology Soaked In Hatred, Humiliation, Offensive War?
    Sultan Shahin, New Age Islam

    Among many factors, social, economic, political, psychological, the one common feature is a brainwashing of vulnerable people on the basis of a supremacist, xenophobic, intolerant, exclusivist and totalitarian Jihadi theology. This is a blatant misuse of Islam, a spiritual path to salvation, that 1.6 billion Muslims believe, teaches peace, pluralism, co-existence and good neighbourliness.

     But there has to be a reason why jihadi ideology has gained acceptance so quickly; why fatwas issued by reputed moderate scholars prove so ineffective? How are Jihadis able to create a 100 percent certainty in the minds of some Muslims that violence against innocent people, including Muslims, whom they consider infidel, will please God and lead them to heaven?

     Clearly we Muslims need to rethink some basic features of our theology. Success of jihadism lies in the fact that, at its core, the jihadi theology is not very different from the consensus theology of all other schools of Islamic thought. For instance, jihadists are able to misuse the intolerant, xenophobic, war-time verses of the holy Quran, as Muslims believe that all verses, regardless of the context, are of universal applicability. Indeed, the Islamic theology of consensus, taught in all madrasas, says that Quran is uncreated, meaning that it is just an aspect of God; and so, divine like God Himself.....
