    Willing Executioners: Preventing Suicide Attacks Requires Shunning Intolerance
    Sobhya Agha

    Modern suicide terrorism began in the 1980s under conditions where the coercer was the weaker actor and the target the stronger. From Hezbollah, Hamas, the Tamil Tigers and Chechnyan rebel groups to Al Qaeda and the militant Islamic State group, the rhetoric of major suicide terrorist groups reflects the logic of coercive punishment. This technique’s purpose is to inflict punishment and provoke fear....

    Not Just By Jobs and Mobiles: BJP Needs To Address the Alienation, Fear and Silence of the Minority Community
    Ravinder Kaur

    The Akhlaq incident, the Muzaffarnagar riots, the incidents around tanning, has undermined Muslim confidence. Alienation, fear and silence are the result. It is this that the BJP needs to address — something that Atal Bihari Vajpayee was able to address and some believe that the Babri-tainted Rajnath Singh could address. Is the BJP of Modi and Shah even keen to recognise the issue of genuine inclusion, let alone address it?....

    It seems that the admiration is mutual. As Trump and Prince Salman sat for a photo op after lunch, Trump smiled, pointed to the Saudi delegation, and said, “They are nice people.” No, Mr. Trump, they aren’t. They behead people for peaceful dissent at home. They export the extreme Wahhabist ideology that fuels terrorist groups. And they are committing war crimes in Yemen. ...

    Israel’s Rejection of Peace Grows Bolder
    Ray Hanania

    Worse is that Israelis, angry that they had to give up on their dream of a “Greater Israel” that encompasses most of the Middle East including Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, voted overwhelmingly to elect hard-line extremists to reject peace and pursue a tough military policy against Palestinian civilians. What is amazing to me is that Israel has been rejecting peace openly and without shame for the past 20 years and no one in the Arab world has done anything about it....

    How Islamic Is Instant Triple Talaq?  एक साथ तीन तलाक इस्लामी कैसे?
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    हलाला भारतीय मुसलमानों के अंदर सबसे अश्लील सामाजिक कर्म है जिसे उलेमा के सभी वर्गों का समर्थन प्राप्त है। अगर तीन तलाक की प्रक्रिया समाप्त कर दिया जाए या एक ही बार में दी जाने वाली तीन तलाक को एक ही कुरआनी तलाक माना जाए तो यह सामाजिक मामूल खुद बखुद खतम हो जाएगा। जैसा कि मोरक्को, कुवैत, यमन, अफगानिस्तान, लीबिया, कुवैत, कतर, बहरीन, संयुक्त अरब अमीरात, सऊदी अरब, पाकिस्तान, बांग्लादेश, मिस्र, सीरिया, जॉर्डन, इराक, सूडान सहित 22 मुस्लिम देशों में इस पर अमल किया जाता है ।

    Madrasas and Failure of Muslim Leadership  مدارس کی زبوں حالی اور مسلم قیادت کی ناکامی
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    اس امر سے اکثر لوگ واقف ہیں کہ ایسے مدارس کی ایک بہت بڑی تعداد ہے جو کسی بھی مدرسہ بورڈ سے منسلک نہ ہونے کی وجہ سے مکمل طور پر غیر منظم اور غیر منضبط ہیں۔ اور اس طرح کے ارباب مدارس اپنے اختیارات کا اکثر ان معنوں میں غلط استعمال کرتے ہیں کہ وہ نصابِ تعلیم اور نظامِ تعلیم کے معاملے میں مدارس بورڈ کے دائرہ کار سے باہر ہیں۔ زیادہ تر ان مدارس میں کہ جنہیں آزاد مدارس کہا جاتا ہے، بنیادی طور پر دینیات کی تعلیم دی جاتی ہےجو بنیادی طور پر صدیوں پرانی کتابوں کا ایک مجموعہ ہے۔ یہاں تک کہ ان مذہبی مضامین میں بھی ان مباحث کو کوئی جگہ نہیں دی جاتی ہے جن کا تعلق روزمرہ کےمسائل سے ہے۔ اور اس قسم کے نظامِ تعلیم کا مقصد مضامین کے مقتضیات اور اس کی نزاکتوں پر غور و فکر کئے بغیر انہیں صرف زبانی طور پر رٹ کر یاد کر لینا ہے۔

    Shades Of Hindutva– Examining Challenges From Within And Without
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam
    Hindutva, a stock of knowledge and way of life unique to Indian civilisation, is being viewed differently and is facing challenges from within and without. Hindutva – A Dynamic Way of Life: Hindutva is immensely diverse: Hindus worship rivers, trees, snake, men, women, sun, and practically everything. There is a temple in Delhi dedicated to the Saturn. But at the centre of it, Hindutva is a dynamic force, open to accept change. ...

    The Barelwi-Deobandi Truce? More Than Meets The Eye
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Thus behind the veil of protecting Muslim youths framed up on terror charges, something much more fundamental may be going on. Both the Deobandi and the Barelwi leadership derive much of their legitimacy and power from being the custodians of the Muslim religious sphere. Any challenge to their understanding of Islam is a direct challenge to their religious authority and therefore it is no wonder that the erstwhile enemies are now talking to each other.

     
    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Al-Baghdadi begins his speech with an introduction replete with Koranic quotes stressing the importance and obligation of fighting the enemies of Islam and dying as a martyr for it. Citing the example of the Prophet Muhammad, who, Al-Baghdadi says, waged jihad throughout his entire life, he stresses that jihad and fighting are obligatory for every Muslim. Al-Baghdadi adds that participation in battle and willingness to die for Allah are aimed at testing the believers and rewarding them.

    Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Aandolan – Fighting for Islamic Shariah, Not Women’s Liberty
    Tufail Ahmad for New Age Islam

    Over the years, it has become a humiliating experience for Muslim husbands in the Shariah-compliant India republic to divorce because they are prevented by the Indian justice system to approach courts for divorce. The BMMA does not advocate ending the role of Islamic clerics. It merely wants male clerics to be replaced by women clerics. Currently, the BMMA is engaged in creating a parallel legal system in India. For example, it is training women Qazis (Islamic judges) who will adjudicate on Muslim matters...

    ISIS’ Millenarian Theory and its Refutation: Perspectives from Islam on Mahdaviat Doctrine and its Misinterpretations (Part 2)
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Note: A large part of the attraction of ISIS for Muslim youth is its millenarian thesis. It has convinced many that end of times is at hand, that they are engaged in the end-times battle, the Malhama. This has made the war they are engaged in imperative and urgent. Millenarianism or Islamic Eschatology, ilm-e-Aakhiruzzaman, was an inspiration behind some ideologues of al-Qaeda as well. But Osama bin Laden himself and most of his ideologues did not emphasize it much. As for ISIS, even in its previous avatar as Jamāʻat al-Tawḥīdwa-al-Jihād (The Organisation of Monotheism and Jihad) founded in 1999 by Jordanian radical Abu Musab al-Zarqawi which later pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda, several ideologues strongly believed in the apocalyptic worldview, the theory of this war being the final great war, al-Malhama al-Kubra, in which Islam will conquer the world.

    World domination has been a Muslim dream for ever. Books like Qeyamat ki Peshingoyian, or prophesies of the Prophet about the last days on earth have always been a bestseller in Muslim religious bookshops in every part of the world. No matter how irrational, Muslims of all denominations have for ever been waiting for a Mahdi or an Imam who will appear in the final days and set everything right. Indeed, this belief cuts across religious barriers. Believers in a number of religions are looking forward to the sudden appearance of a deliverer. This has made the task of ISIS easier. To help us understand this phenomenon better, New Age Islam is presenting a study by our regular columnist Mr. Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, a classical Islamic scholar who specialises in comparative religion. --- Editor

    How and Why Global Jihadists Have Turned an Islamic Occasion of Peace like Eid-ul-Fitr into a Time of Terror?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    While Muslims the world over are preparing for the Eid al-Fitr that marks the end of Ramadan, jihadists are hell-bent on making it ‘a month of mayhem for the infidels’. It is simple and plain. The spokesman for the ISIS Abu Mohammed al-Adnani had said in the very beginning of the Islamic month that the jihadists should “make it, with God’s permission, a month of calamity for infidels everywhere.”....

    The fact remains that homosexuality is condemned in almost all Semitic religions, but why is it that only Muslims react to it in a violent fashion. Does it have something to do with the way Islam is being taught in religious schools? … Are we doing something to curb the almost routine prejudice which pervades Muslim society about Jews or homosexuals? … And if at all, some Muslims are indeed saying and believing that Islam is a religion of peace, then what have they done to critically engage with those verses in the Quran which ask the believers to wage war in the name of Islam...

Almost the entire Islamic Eschatology is based on Hadees, and we don’t think by strengthening the institution of Hadees, that were collected up to 300 years after the demise of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), seeking to find answers in Hadees itself, we can fight the radical Islamic theology. But it is important to know and understand.  --- Editor

    What Stops Muslim Women’s Entry into Haji Ali Dargah’s Sanctorum: Islam or Male Chauvinism?
    By Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Freshly minted zealot Muslims who abhor women visiting Sufi shrines, historic tombs, mausoleums and graves of the Prophet’s companions (Sahaba) and other great spiritual figures should rethink their position in the light of well-established Islamic traditions. Equating women’s visit to holy shrines with the pre-Islamic pagan practice of moaning and wailing at graves is untenable….

    Syed Ahmed ‘Shaheed’ Rai Barelwi’s Tehrik-e-Jihad in India, Was It to Fight British Imperialism or Establish an Islamic State?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    … Syed Ahmad Rai Barelvi‘s jihad was solely aimed at fighting Punjab’s Sikh community, overthrowing non-Muslim rule and ultimately establishing an Islamic state in the country. His core belief was that Muslims in India could not achieve true freedom unless they launch an ‘aggressive, violent and armed struggle against non-Muslim forces’. He regarded non-Muslims as ‘monstrous evils’ who had corrupted the Islamic society, and therefore, launched a great jihad with thousands of his fervent followers to eliminate the ‘evil’…

    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.....
