    Islamophobic Fear of Muslim Women in Burqa
    Dr Robert D Crane

    The first category of the Maqasid provides ontological guidance, consisting of respect for religious freedom (Haqq Al Din); for the sacredness of the individual person (Haqq al Nafs), including right to life; for the sacred nature of the derivative communities from family to nation to humankind and beyond (Haqq Al Nasl), including communitarian pluralism; and for our physical environment (Haqq Al Mahid, from Wahda or oneness)....

    Indian Supreme Court Has a History of Defending Muslims against the High Courts of Other States

    This indicates that many Muslims arrested by the police and charged end up being acquitted, usually for lack of evidence, after spending years, even decades, behind bars. This gap reflects police bias on the one hand, but also the resilient professionalism of the judiciary. Except that the professionalism of the judiciary tends to decrease as one climbs down the judicial institutional ladder....

    Accepting LGBTQ: Shikhandi of the Mahabharata and Ajanta, Ellora Paintings Show That Ancient India Did Not Look Down Upon Sexual Choices
    Faizan Mustafa

    The judges have partially struck down Section 377 and criticised the imposition of Victorian morality by the colonial government. The court noted that the English law's conception of anal and oral intercourse was firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian morality. In fact, ancient India did not look down upon such sexual choices. We all are aware of Shikhandi of the Mahabharata and the explicit paintings in Ajanta, Ellora and other temples, though the RSS considers such relationships against nature. The RSS, in its response to the judgment, has rejected same-sex marriage as against Indian traditions and cultures. Muslim and Christian clergy are on the same page with the RSS on this issue....

    Holy War on Atheism in Afghanistan That Formed the Basis of the Al Qaeda Organisation
    Nabal Khammash

    In the early stage, the Arab Afghan saw that it was necessary for them to be independent from the Afghan fighting factions and formations, and decided to have their own camps. Taking into consideration that bin Laden was the most prominent jihadist leader, he was able to establish six camps that attracted those willing to join from among the young Arab men. The group was called Al Qaeda, and experts in Islamic movement see that the name appeared for the first time between August 1988 and the end of 1989. Eventually, the Russians withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989, and all the involved groups dispersed and ceased the jihadist operations against atheism....

    September 11, 2001: Saudi Arabia's Use of Political Islam Has Caused the Spread of the Beast of Terrorism

    Sadly enough, 15 of the 18 hijackers, who took part in the attacks, were Saudis, and the majority of them either grew up in government-supported religious camps in Saudi Arabia, or were Imams (clerics) there. Other nationalities that participated in the attacks include the United Arab Emirates and Egypt. As all of us already know, amongst all the Arab countries the mental image of Saudi Arabia is that of the one and only country which is deeply and heavily associated with Islam, given the fact that the two holy cities of Makkah and Madinah are located there. The indication here is not that Islam as a religion promotes such barbaric acts. Rather, it is the Saudi government-based version of Islam that arguably encourages so....

Boko Haram in Nigeria, Al-Shabab in Somalia, the Sinai province affiliate in Egypt and other factions in Yemen and Libya, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan all declared allegiance to Daesh.

    Barelvi Radicalism Looks to Transcend Its Old Image of Being Apolitical, ‘Peace-Loving Spiritualists’
    Nadeem F. Paracha

    The Sunni Barelvi sub-sect, that a majority of Pakistanis belong to, did not have any historical tradition related to armed jihad. Therefore, the state of Pakistan, with help from the US and Saudi Arabia, forked out millions of dollars to pull in radical Deobandi elements from the fringes and into the mainstream. The Sunni Barelvi sub-sect narrative has been moulded by changing state narratives but has also met resistance...

    Tablighi Jamaat, Not Limited to the Deobandi Community, is a Gateway to Terrorism
    Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury

    The Tablighi Jamaat canon is bare-boned. Apart from the Qu’ran, the only literature Tablighis are required to read are the Tablighi Nisab, seven essays penned by a companion of Ilyas in the 1920s. Tablighi Jamaat is not a monolith: one subsection believes they should pursue jihad through conscience [Jihad Bin Nafs] while a more radical wing advocates jihad through the sword [Jihad Bin Saif]. But, in practice, all Tablighis preach a creed that is hardly distinguishable from the radical Wahhabi-Salafi jihadist ideology that so many terrorists share....

    The War Within Islam
    Revisiting Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses
    Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

    Salman Rushdie’s almost magical dream like complex web of fiction titled Satanic Verses is not easy to fathom even for an unbiased mind on its first reading. The nuanced references to maliciously crafted Hadith however are obvious to detect and therefore for those to whom the corpus is “holy, Shariff and Sahi” must be a cause for concern, a blasphemy and a hurt. It was perhaps this that caused a supposedly learned Iranian Supreme Spiritual Leader Khomeini to issue a fatwa of death on the author. An edict at that time had influenced a few minds against Salman Rushdie as he being instrumental in causing strife in the larger community of Muslims....

    The Beauty and Wisdom of the Sufi Teaching on 'Tawakkul' or Divine Surrender
    Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu, New Age Islam

    The reason why I sometimes wanted to declare my “independence” from God is my feeling that there are many things that are going-on in my life that I cannot understand, and I sometimes feel that if I am the one truly in-charge of my life, then all will be well. However, when I looked back at my past and saw for myself the wrong directions I had taken and the mistaken decisions I had made, and the many heartbreaks and complications that came due to my stupid decisions, I cringed at the idea of my seeking “independence” from God; and right there and then, I sincerely repent of my arrogance and confess with utter humility that God is still the God of Divine Wisdom Who holds my very life in the Palm of His Hands….

    The Correct Understanding of the So Called ‘Sword’ Verses of Surah Taubah
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The discussion on the verses of Surah Taubah clearly establish that the above two principles, were never violated by the Prophet in his battles against the enemy, and are fundamental principles of Islam. The peaceful Mushrikin had the choice of retaining their religion and paying Jizya and the others had a choice to migrate and retain their religion.

    Those who had fought against the Muslims, in violation of their treaty, were deserving of the death punishment, according to the rules of that society. Even these people were given the opportunity to migrate during the amnesty period, and save themselves. The judgment was not only in accordance with the secular law of that society, but more humane and merciful. Calling these the “sword verses” is therefore a complete misrepresentation of both the intent and the outcomes. The people to whom the key words Mushrikin, Kafirin, La Yalamun and La Yuminun apply, and therefore their meaning, is explained with the help of the verses themselves…..

    Objectively speaking, the definition of any concept pertaining to socio-cultural beliefs and practices is, in most cases, problematic and may have unsettling fallout for many. It will be like stating the obvious to say that Khatam-i-Nabuwwat acquired the centrality among rest of the postulates because of Ahmadi viewpoint which was not consistent with the mainstream Muslim belief. It will be pertinent to see it in juxtaposition to the Ahmadi belief regarding Khatam-i-Nabuwwat....

The basic principles of tolerance and treating others the way we wish to be treated are the foundations of both faiths, repeatedly emphasized in their sacred texts.

    The Importance of Getting the Story Right on the Divine Plan Allah
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Javed Ghamidi gives the same reasons for extremism as I do but differently worded. According to Javed Ghamidi, the following are the reasons for extremism the belief that it is the rightful duty of all Muslims to mete out the punishment of death to all the Kafir – polytheists, disbelievers and the apostates.

    The belief that no one except the Muslims have a right to rule the world and the Muslims are therefore religiously bound to wage war to bring all non-Muslim countries under their rule. There should be only one government in the entire world and that should be the Islamic caliphate. The modern states are an embodiment of Kufr (disbelief), and therefore can have no place in Islam.....

    Islam's Relationship With The Rest Of The Word - The Current Problem Of Extremism In A False Ideology And The Antidote From An Authentic Understanding Of The Truly Humanistic Message Of The Quran
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The Muslim of the Quran, is therefore simply anyone who submits to God (by whatever name), and is a doer of good deeds. There are therefore only two kinds of people - those who stand for justice and against oppression are the friends and helpers of God and the oppressors are the enemies of humanity and of God.  The finding of this paper needs to be leveraged to transform young minds to think in terms of objective attributes of people, rather than in terms of the narrow stereo types based on a person’s religious identity. Since our theology says otherwise, we need to work to change it according to the clear message of the Quran brought out in this paper to remove the ideological basis for extremism among the Muslims and to promote greater co-operation with all good people of other faiths….

    Hyderabad Sex Slavery: Till When Will Islam Keep Sanctioning Such Marriages?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The first and foremost problem with such a marriage is that in a majority of cases it is driven by acute poverty. When a family, too poor to feed itself and where a girl child is understood as a burden the very idea of marriage appears appealing to the family. At least it is one mouth less to feed since the girl becomes someone else’s burden and responsibility. Scores of marriages take place because of considerations of poverty and it happens amongst all communities. Because of poverty, neither the family nor the persons involved have any real choice in such marriages....

    Child Marriage among Indian Muslims: The Mullahs Have Brought Shame to the Muslim Community, Yet Again
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Even if we come to the conclusion that Prophet did in fact marry a minor, then a historical and contextual reading of this decision can always be done. What was right during the Prophet’s time is no longer valid. What was Sharia (the path) at the time of the Prophet is no longer the Sharia of the present. Contextualising the actions of the Prophet in its time is perhaps the only way out of the morass which we find ourselves in today. Rather than shying away from the problem, we must first have the courage to recognise it and then throw it open for debate. Pretending that everything is fine with Islam only obfuscates the problem and has already done irreparable harm to the community and the religion....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Madrasa students spend most of their day in rote memorization of the Qur’an in Arabic (this is not their native language, so few understand what they are reading) and interpreting the Hadith. Only theology is taught; there is no math, science, computer training, or secular history.34 The young men at these schools are drawn from the dire poor of the societies they come from, kept in self-contained worlds that are isolated from outside influences, and indoctrinated with a powerful, not-so-academic radical message: their highest honor and duty is to wage jihad to defend Islam from its attackers, and the United States is the chief enemy of Islam…..

    Sufism: A Search for Freedom and Self-Authenticity
    Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu, New Age Islam

    As I step-up and deepen my readings on Islamic spirituality, I sensed that Sufism as a philosophy and as a movement has strong affinity with those movements that seek human authenticity and freedom: say for example the hippie movements, the counter-culture, the Gypsy lifestyle, and the anti-establishment movements in the 1960s and the 1970s. I really feel that there is a strong similarity between the aspirations of the Sufis of Islam and the hippies and the anti-establishment movements concerning the human person’s freedom and authenticity to choose for himself how to live one’s life in the midst of the nauseating hegemony of the society that forces us into unthinking conformity to conventional conditioning and tyranny of the majority opinion on how to live one’s life.

    The neighbouring countries have the power to bring the military junta to exercise moderation over its treatment of minority Muslims but they will not do so for a variety of reasons. The Chinese are concerned about their pipeline which will run through the Rakhine state. The Indians are concerned about strategic factors in the north eastern states. Both therefore do not want to annoy the military junta of Myanmar and want them at their side.

    Contesting the Political Islamist Theology: Untenable Theological Justifications For The Corruption, Purge And Religious Persecution In Turkey
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The pro-government political theologians in Muslim countries have propounded a complete political theology—an exclusivist and totalitarian theology which undermines the democratic, moderate and progressive thoughts flourishing in the liberal Muslim minds. Regrettably, many religionists in those countries are falling prey to this unceasing ideology endangering their lives and stigmatising the religion in general. Unless this retrogressive theology of political hue is contested, there will be no way forward to progressive thinking in Islam in the 21st century. It actually poses a direct ideological threat to the rich spiritual traditions—unity of existence, pluralism and multiculturalism—that Muslims have inherited in various countries.

    There is therefore a vast gulf which is unbridgeable, unless the Muslims believe in the whole of the Quran, and discard the secondary sources for an explanation of the Book. “And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord:" and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding”. There appear to be very few people of understanding across the spectrum of the “believers” and the “disbelievers”, providing proof thereby, that the playing field is very level indeed for all, and there is little difference among the people, except their deeds. False beliefs are common to all people, and the “believers” equally blaspheme God, their Prophet and their Book with their false beliefs....

    'Make Revolutionary Changes in the Islamic Theology of Consensus to Fight Jihadism': Sultan Shahin Asks Muslim Nations at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Sixteen years after 9/11, the issue of Jihadi terrorism has become even more complex and widespread.

    First, though Jihadism is a violent offshoot of Wahhabism and Salafism, the international community has allowed the fountainhead of Wahhabi/Salafi ideology to continue to spend tens of billions of dollars to Wahhabise the world Muslim community.

    Second, we recently saw with horror, but without any protest from the international community, the sight of a UN-designated terrorist, with a ten-million-dollar bounty on his head, launch a political party and nominate another US-designated terrorist to contest democratic elections in Pakistan. Apparently, some countries can ignore UN directives with impunity.

    Third, the Muslim community has failed to grasp that Jihadism spread so rapidly around the world because at its core it is not very different from the theology of consensus that informs the religious beliefs and practices of all Muslim sects. That is why Jihadis are not impressed when we Muslims either proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace and pluralism or when we try to wash our hands off Jihadism by claiming that it has nothing to do with Islam. If we Muslims want to live as honourable citizens in the 21st century’s globalised world, we must rethink our consensus theology in all its dimensions and make revolutionary changes to bring it in line with the needs of present times....
