    Dr. Abdus Salaam: Islam and Value of Education in Pakistan
    Asif Merchant, New Age Islam

    Dr. Salaam is the only Nobel Laureate in Physics from Pakistan. That he had to leave his country and stay in exile indicates the value placed by the Pakistanis on education. The emphasis placed on education in the Quran, the Holy Prophet’s own exhortation to go to the ends of the earth in the pursuit of knowledge, have all come to naught before the sort of religious values the current lot of Pakistanis are learning….

    Jesus Christ and Prophet Muhammad Followed 'The Golden Rule'
    Craig Considine

    The most important bond that Jesus Christ and Prophet Muhammad share is their love for humanity. Both of them cared for other people and groups as much as their own followers. Jesus taught his followers to "Honour all people, love the brotherhood" (1 Peter 2:17). Christ's love for humanity is also seen in Philippians (2:1-2), which calls on human beings to comfort and love one another and to be of "one accord, of one mind." The Prophet Muhammad reiterated Jesus's love for humanity in stating "All God's creatures are His family" (Al-Bukhari). ....

    Our Reactions to Terror Are a Litany of Hypocrisies: Muslims are the Greatest Victims of Radical Islam
    Kabir Taneja

    Not only is the understanding of political Islam, with all its parts and pieces, pedestrian at best, there is also a sense that the people in the Middle East have made their own mess, never mind that many prevailing problems are rooted in colonialism. There is scarcely any recognition in Western and even Indian discourse that Muslims are the greatest victims of radical Islam. ...

    In contrast to them are people for whom life is not just ‘time-pass’, but, rather, a God-given opportunity for their spiritual development. Such people think of old age as a blessing from God, each moment a valuable treasure to be carefully spent in order to please God and do God’s Will. For such people, old age is an opportunity, rather than a burden....

    A Skewed Analysis of Islamophobia

    You definitely haven’t heard of ‘Christianophobia’ or ‘Buddhismophobia’—or ‘Paganophobia’ for that matter—but you must certainly have heard of ‘Islamophobia’, which is now so commonplace a term that it has probably found its way into every respectable dictionary. And there’s good reason for it, too. Prejudicial views about Islam and negative stereotypical images of Muslims—which is what the term ‘Islamophobia’ encapsulates—are now fairly widespread across the world. ....

    The Salafi war on Sufism
    By Shail Mayaram

    The Salafi war on Sufism

    Many would read the global war on terror as a Samuel Huntingtonian self-fulfilling prophecy; witnesses would most likely identify it as a tragically wrong hypothesis. There are clearly many fault lines within Islam, some of which are deepening dramatically. One, there are attacks on Muslim intellectuals, attempts to suppress dissent. Two, there is polarisation between the Shias and Sunnis, primarily due to the Sunnification of Islam that has been continuing since the early 20th century.

    The Country Is Gone, It Is Not For Living Any More, Syria Is Ashes

    Syria is an immense collective failure. What has changed for the West in the past several weeks is that it has become more difficult to live in denial of this fact. Western responsibility is engaged by the unfathomable irresponsibility that has turned Syria into a slaughterhouse. President Obama has offered to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees; that is a pittance. A Europe of half a billion people must reject pampered smallness and open its eyes. Desperation cannot be met by penny-counting calculation, or doors slamming shut.....

    Indian Maulana Salman Nadwi Congratulates Abu Bakr Baghdadi, Accepts Him As Caliph Of Muslims, Writes Him A Letter Expressing His Excitement At The Establishment Of Islamic Caliphate
    By Sultan Shahin, Editor, New Age Islam

    In our previous editorial, we had expressed our sense of relief that Abu Bakr Baghdadi’s caliphate has been accepted by only terrorist organisations in Pakistan, Nigeria and Syria and the religious scholars of the world, especially the Egyptian Islamic scholar and mufti Yousuf Al Qaradhawi had rejected Abu Bakr’s claim to be the caliph of the Muslims of the world as null and void and un-Islamic. But to our utter shock, we have come to know through a news report published in the front page of Urdu daily Aag of Lucknow that one of the renowned Islamic scholar and great grandson of Maulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi has congratulated Abu Bakr Baghdadi on being appointed as the caliph of Muslims and has prayed for his well being and safety. In a letter written to Baghdadi which is available on What’s App, he has showered praises on his valour and religious zeal with which he has taught a lesson to the tyrant ruler Nuri Al Maliki. In his two page letter, Maulana Salman Nadvi has addressed Abu Bakr Baghdadi as Ameerul Momineen and has praised Abu Bakr Baghdadi for establishing the much desired Islamic Caliphate......

    Islam Was Embraced By The Masses Because Of The Stark Simplicity, Honesty, The Power Of Love And Faith Exemplified By Saints And Sufis

    Contrary to the widespread canard, Islam took roots and spread in much of South Asia not at gunpoint. Rather, it was embraced by the masses who were bowled over by the stark simplicity and honesty of Arab merchants and traders and the power of love and faith exemplified by saints and Sufis like Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti of Ajmer, Nizamuddin Auliya of Delhi and Syed Abul Hasan Hajvery of Lahore. They endorsed and demonstrated the liberating message of Islam and its teachings of love, peace, universal brotherhood and equality before God with their actions and conduct……

    Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam Must Discover Their Spiritual Symbiosis for a Conflict-Free, Environment Conscious World
    Sultan Shahin, Editor, New Age Islam

    The Global Hindu-Buddhist Initiative inaugurated recently  by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister Shinzō Abe of Japan (through a video) focussed on confronting the rising tide of violence threatening the world order by "building a non-formal intellectual and geo-political architecture to appeal, influence, persuade and moderate the forces of violence."  In order to unravel the causes of conflict caused by violent ideologies, and preventing violence from escalating, the well-delineated concept paper for the conference suggested "intense studies about the sources and impulses of violence."

    This is an urgent task. While violence has and can emanate from people professing other ideologies,  in present times we are largely facing terrorism from the practitioners of a particularly vile form of the Islamist ideology. Islamism is a derivative of the religion of Islam, which has peace enshrined in its very name. The word Islam itself means peace, though its practitioners have practised violence, defensive and offensive, at different points in Muslim history.  Contrary to explicit guidance in their primary scripture, the holy Quran, some Muslims have taken upon themselves the task of imposing Islam on the world through violent means. This group is called Islamist and their ideology Islamism.

    One can have no doubt, therefore, that the concept of Global Hindu-Buddhist Initiative on Conflict Avoidance and Environment Consciousness is an inspired idea whose time has come, given the growing threat to world peace from a bunch of misguided Islamists. It is primarily the job of Muslims to confront this cancerous growth in the body politic of Islam, but help from other cultures is entirely welcome....

    Mumbai-Based Raza Academy is a Soft Version of Jihadism
    Tufail Ahmad for New Age Islam

    If modern civilisation is characterised by freedom of speech and individual liberty, Islamic theocrats are the modern-day barbarians threatening the modernity of our age. Among the numerous Islamic clerics who taunt the Indian republic and its rule of law is Saeed Noori, the chief of Mumbai-based Raza Academy – a Barelvi theocratic institution at the centre of a fatwa (Islamic decree) against the Oscar-winner Indian music director A. R. Rahman and Iranian filmmaker Majid  Majidi for their film, "Muhammad: Messenger of God."As per a media report, the fatwa declared Rahman and Majidi as "infidel" and their marriages "invalid" as per Islamic Shariah. It noted:"It is nothing short of a crime to make a film on the Prophet; dramatizing his life and using non-Muslim actors...Making such a film is making a mockery of religion."....

    Who decides what ‘authentic Islam’ is?  It is true that many Muslims hold that authentic Islam is opposed to every form of religious violence.  Some writers call them moderate Muslims. I do not qualify Muslims as moderate or otherwise. I do not judge them. I just refer to Muslims either as ‘many Muslims’ or as ‘some Muslims’. Many Catholic scholars on Islam note that it is true that the Qur'an does allow and even command violence in some verses, but many Muslims would claim that that violence may only be defensive....

    From the Desk of Editor
    With Our 7th Century Mind-Set, Can We Muslims Co-Exist With Other Religious Communities In Any Part Of The World?
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    The Holy Quran had asked Muslims to fight for the existence of all those worship houses, synagogues, churches, monasteries, temples where God is praised in abundance.

    “…If God had not checked one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause); —for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will). (Qur'an, 22:40)

    You can see that here God makes the cause of protecting worship houses of all religious communities, “monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques,” as His own cause. But have you heard any Muslim demanding Saudi Arabia or Pakistan or Bangladesh or any other Muslim country where religious minorities face persecution, to desist and follow the dictates of the Quran for religious freedom and diversity? I would have thought that if Muslims followed Quran, not to speak of the charter of The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we would be fighting Jihad against Saudi government to allow other religious communities to establish their own worship houses, against Pakistan and Bangladesh to stop persecuting Hindus, Christians and Ahmadis, etc.
