    Citing History Does Not Legitimize Israel
    S. Mubashir Noor, New Age Islam

    As a final thought, the Jewish-Arab death match that emerged from Israel’s independence and promises to turn bloodier after Trump unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital seems to me a textbook example of misplaced anger following the Nazi pogroms of World War II. It is as Saudi King Abdul Aziz told U.S President F.D Roosevelt in 1945: “Let the Jews build their homeland on the best lands in Germany, not on the territory of Arabs who had nothing to do with what happened to them.”...

    And their thinking does not go beyond the Mullahs and their madrasas. They need to realise that the tide is turning within Muslim community. That now there are many within the community who are ready to challenge the monopoly of the Mullahs and there are many who now want to move in a different direction from the sectarian agendas which had hitherto defined Muslim politics. The sooner these so called progressive parties realise it, the better it will be for their own political fortunes. Again, the clergy must realise that this is not the end of the struggle for women. This is just the beginning and in the coming years we will have similar legitimate voices raised on the evil practices of polygamy, Nikah Halala and even the unilateral right of divorce...

    The only valid argument from the government is: The instant triple Talaq was an act of psychological cruelty to Muslim wives. In such a case, it could have introduced a one-sentence amendment in the Domestic Violence Act of 2005, making it an act of mental cruelty. But the government is arguing before the public that its bill is a piece of reform. Leading Muslim lawmakers from the ruling party, such as India's Junior Minister for External Affairs M.J. Akbar, deliver speeches, even inside the parliament, about Muslim women's struggle for rights, but they deliberately avoid discussing the government's bill and its shortcomings...

    Terrorism is a form of political-social warfare. Since the war has been the most important element of this form since the beginning, so terrorism in the long-term globalization can be considered the second most important form of this war. The concept of terrorism will become broader and deeper due to the technically influenced global factors. Although there are many historical examples of the terrorist events, the modern form of terrorism emerged in the mid-nineteenth century....

    Making Sense of Afrazul’s Lynching

    But in a context where Muslim lives have become precarious for the precise reason of being Muslim; then the protest against Afrazul’s killing should have made this statement boldly. In trying a balancing act, these protests have only reduced the depraved ideological gravity of this targeted killing. It was also a little rich that some of these protests were organised by those who had defended the killings of Muslims in Nandigram and Singur. If Hindu nationalism has to resurrect itself on dismembered bodies of Muslims, then it is Muslims themselves who should be at the forefront of protesting against this barbaric dystopia for it is the Muslim alone who can feel the pain of being Muslim in India today. ...

    How to Make Sense of the Saudi Purge

    As commentators have pointed out, the prince should have started with the chief ideologue of the Saudi monarchy: Mohammad Ibn -e-Abdul Wahhab. It is Wahhabism and the theology of Abdul Wahhab's ideological mentor Ibn Taimiyya which is responsible for much which is wrong with the Saudi society today. Their teachings being patronised by the House of Saud has led to the repressions of women and the minority Shia population within Saudi Arabia. Moreover, it is the same ideology which has produced so many terrorists not just within the Saudi society but all over the world. Not content with being so backward and medieval in terms of their religious outlook, the Saudis exported this nefarious ideology to other parts of the world,...

    Celebration of Anmbia’s Birthday
    Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

    The sermons from the Muslim pulpits are often heard forbidding Muslim from associating with Christmas celebrations and offering greetings of the season, on the grounds that Christians worship Jesus. So what does that matters to the others? It would be denying the fact that in some Muslim communities personality cultism of the Nabi Muhammad is rife and Eid Milad un Nabi is a good example of that cultism in some gatherings. The wording of the sing songs – Na’ts and Qawwalis invoking the Nabi to help and assist are as close as one can get to placing him next to God and hence polytheism -shirk. No wonder that many scholars declare such “birthday celebration” as Bid’ah.....

    Tolerance and Cordiality in Muslim-Sikh Relations in Mughal India: A Historical Appraisal
    Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu, New Age Islam

    Warfare in the perspective of Islam and Sikhism is only utilized as the last resort for the defensive protection of the oppressed from the arrogant oppressors. Both religions believe that the sword is never intended for offensive or aggressive warfare. Defence for the rights and dignity of the human person is the only reason for drawing the sword—and only as the last recourse. Islam and Sikhism do not condone force and compulsion—both faiths stand for peace, tolerance, and amity. Islam however provides for the just defence of one’s’ faith, life, and property. In the same vein, the sixth Guru, Hargobind and tenth Guru, Gobind Singh (as the last preceptor of Sikh lineage of spiritual masters) provided for defensive struggle against oppression (but not aggressive war) in their act of arming the Sikhs with sword....

(But God is the lord of both the heaven and the earth, therefore our responsibility demands that we should make peace in this mortal world as well and not create disorder (Fasaad) in the way of God).

    “In Sindh, many Hindus still go to the Sufi shrines and it is related to this principle of the Wahdat al Wujud. The local interpretation of Wahdat al Wujud means that you can belong to a given religion, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, but the final goal is God. And God is unique. There is only one God.” “In India, you still can find Hindus who go to the Sufi shrine but due to this rigidification of religious identities, it is a little bit less now.”...

    And the Taj Stands Tall

    It is true that the Taj was worked upon by Indian labourers, that it is they who built the magnificent structure. It is also possible to look at the monument as an exercise in wasteful expenditure, like Aurangzeb did. But to simply criticise it because Muslims built it is nothing but silly. The Taj is a symbol of love since centuries. The Mughal discourse and subsequent history writing have made this object of love into the common-sense of Indian people. Hindus and Muslims both look up to it as the monument dedicated to love. It is not surprising therefore that there was backlash from within the Hindus which forced Yogi to pick up a broom and run to the service of Taj. That is called the triumph of hegemony and the Hindu Right will be advised to think hard before they renege on the pledge that UP Chief Minister gave while speaking on the Taj.

    Tellingly, Egypt is the first Muslim country which has mulled down the entire corpus of extremist Islamist literature in the country’s religious and educational centres. It has literally banned the extremist thoughts from flourishing in the new Egyptian generation’s minds. Hasan al-Banna, Sayyid Qutub, Maulana Maududi and almost all those who expounded upon the political Islamist theologies in their books have been ousted from the universities and schools. In his piece in The Times of India, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi claimed that Egypt has been at the forefront in the counter-terror mission….

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
