    Erdogan's Rising Islamist Militarism
    Eric Edelman

    Erdogan spotted the weeping girl wearing a military uniform during an address at his party’s congress last week, brought her onto the stage, and told her that if she died as a martyr, her coffin would be covered with the Turkish flag she held in her pocket. “You are ready for anything, aren’t you?” the Islamist strongman asked. The terrified child managed to utter “yes,” though it was hard to hear it through her sobs...

The audio was circulating in Kandy after his death and as a sign of its authenticity, a cabinet minister who had visited the scene referred to the message in Parliament on Tuesday. “They have broken all the doors in our house, large stones are falling inside,” Mr. Basith said in the message. “Hello, yes I am inside our house and they are burning something. There are flames coming inside.”...

    The Legacy Asma Leaves Behind  اسما جہانگیر کا ورثہ
    Asma Jahangir

    سوچنے والے دماغ کے علاوہ ان کے پاس ایک حساس دل بھی تھا۔ وہ ایک بہتر وکیل تھیں کیونکہ وہ سن سکتی تھیں اور انسانی حقوق کی سنگین خلاف ورزیوں کے متاثرین کے درد کو محسوس کر سکتی تھیں۔ ان کی وراثت اس بات کا ثبوت ہے کہ پاکستانی معاشرہ معاملہ فہم، با کردار اور نظریہ مساوات کے حامل افراد پیدا کرسکتا ہے۔

    Islamic Heritage in India Is All About Moderation and Inclusivity, but Muslims Need To Revive This Legacy Which Is Being Lost To Takfirism
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    For instance, Sufism—the rich product of India’s ancient links with Central Asia, carried its universal message of “Wahdat ul Wajud” (Unity of Existence) which beautifully reflected the Indian concept of ‘Vasudhaive Kutumbakam’ (World as one family). Thus, Islamic heritage in India is mainly based on practicing the prophetic tradition: “Al-Khlaqu Ayal Allah” meaning: the whole mankind is one family of God. This is the emblem of religious pluralism in Indian Islamic tradition which can be described as the true expression of the Devine Will, as enunciated in the Qur’an: “If Allah, the Almighty had willed, all the people on the earth would have become one religious community, whether they had wanted or not”....

    Spiritual Meditations

          The word (Sukhan), according to Bedil, constitutes “the soul of the universe and the true principle of the reality of the existing things. When the word strives in the path of concealment of meaning-reality, it is like a whole world locking its breath in its breast. And when it boils over to reveal the text, it is a whole world growing up and rising upon it.” Encountering the Real in the poetic way is what the key practice of Zikr aims at....

    There Is an Enormous Energy Reservoir in You
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

    Man himself is the master of his destiny. It all depends on how much a person has unfolded his mind and how much energy the mind has released.  One achieves greater or smaller successes in life depending on how much energy one’s mind releases.  Every man is a self-made man.  But the quantum of success depends on one’s own planning. ...

Many are dead convinced that the regime is fighting al-Qaeda in Eastern Ghouta, which is using civilians as human shields - hence the hundreds of dead are not really the regime's fault.....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad
    '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....
