    After 9/11, the US and its allies identified terrorists living in these very communities and allied with central governments in order to target and destroy them. Too often, however, central governments used the pretext of the war on terror and the substantial levels of military and financial assistance they were receiving from the US to settle scores with the tribes, which they often viewed as uncivilized and backward.....

    Man’s Story: In Possessing Freewill Man Is An Exceptional Being
    Maulana Wahiduddin Khan for New Age Islam

    God created humans as eternal beings. Human life consists of two parts: firstly, the pre-death period; and secondly, the post-death period. The first extends over a very short period of time, while the latter will continue for eternity.  Other than man, all beings in this world function completely according to the law of nature. They compulsorily do what the law of nature has destined for them. But man’s case is different. In possessing freewill man is an exceptional being....

    Courting Another Political Verdict: Nawaz Sharif Gets A Breather From The Pakistan Supreme Court
    Husain Haqqani

    Generating smoke without fire against persons deemed difficult or uncontrollable by Pakistan’s permanent state establishment, the deep state, is often the greatest accomplishment of inquiries created by the Supreme Court on direct petitions like the one over the Panama Papers. The JIT might still find nothing definitive for prosecution but Mr. Sharif is on notice. And that is how Pakistan’s system is designed to work....

    Islam, Women and Feminism

    While most societies across the globe are becoming more liberal when it comes to gender, not only are Arab countries the most conservative, there is also little evidence of change. Our research, which looks at how political and social attitudes changed after the Arab uprisings in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia, suggests that although women tend to be more progressive, both women and men share conservative attitudes...

He scrapped a ban on alcohol and forbade women workers from wearing headscarves.....

A formal excuse for the aggression was based as many times before (from Vietnam, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya… cases) on traditional political false flags.....

    Communal Violence against the Bangla Hindus: Will the Mainstream Muslims Combat The Growing ‘Radical Islamist Communalism’?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The reason for the fresh vicious attacks on Hindu minority in Bangladesh, as the radical Islamists claim, was the local fisherman’s Facebook post which allegedly ‘denigrated the Ka’aba—the holiest Islamic place of worship. Though the fisherman denied sharing the post and the Police immediately arrested him for ‘hurting religious sentiment’, the religious goons were going haywire brazenly violating the law and order in the country. ....

    Islam’s Existential Crisis: Tolerance Is Needed to Stop It from Splintering into Separate Sectarian Boxes
    Hasan Suroor

    What I find extraordinary is the Muslim indifference towards Islam’s future, as if they couldn’t care less. A standard smug reaction is that all religions, notably Christianity, have gone through upheavals and emerged stronger. So will Islam; a “new” Islam fit for the 21st century will emerge from the debris of the old.

    The Qur'an Does Not Mandate Hijab
    Ibrahim B. Syed, New Age Islam

    Some Muslim scholars are under the impression that the Arab women used to roam around with their head and bosoms totally uncovered; and the Qur’anic verse (24:31) instructed them to pull their ‘Khimar’ from their back onto their exposed bosoms. This assumption is correct as it is based on historical facts....

    To Counter Jihadism, Teach Need-Blind Subjects to Muslim Children
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    Such a strategy must do the following: all madrasas and mosques should be registered and their finances audited by local officials, a task unachievable if the same is not done for churches; madrasa syllabi should be reformed to include – in addition to the teachings of the Quran, Hadiths and Islamic Studies – English and material sciences as well as a primer on need-blind subjects like liberal arts from the primary standards....

    A Definition of Muslim Fundamentalists and Fundamentalism
    T.O. Shanavas, New Age Islam

    Sharia is central to Islamic faith. It is the Divine Law of Guidance for personal and public behaviour of Muslims, and justice to humanity. Justice is one word in Islam that wraps balance, harmony, fairness, mercy and equity together for the society to function cohesively, where none has live in fear of the other but God. In its absence, humanity will degenerate into a dysfunctional society....

    How to Construct a Liberal Islam - Part Two
    Akbar Ganji

    God asked Prophet Muhammad explicitly to declare that he was not a new phenomenon among the prophets (Al-Ahqaf, 9). The Quran considers all adherents of other divine religions as Muslim (Al-Baqarah, 136; Al-i-Imran, 84). In the Quran’s view all divine religions are one and the same, but depending on their era had different approaches and laws (Al-Ma’idah, 45-49). It also states that (Al-Hajj, 34, 67) God gave different rites for different religions....

    Why Pan-Islamism Is the Biggest Roadblock for Muslims' Integration with Modernity
    Arshia Malik

    Pan-Islamism went through its various stages, starting from the early days of Islam as a ''religious concept'' and moved on to become a ''modern political ideology'' in the 1860s and the 1870s at the height of European Colonialism when Turkish intellectuals began discussing and writing about it as a way to save the crumbling Ottoman Empire...

    Rohingya Muslim Refugees Could Exacerbate the Kashmir Problem

    In April 2013, U.S.-based Human Rights Watch released a 153-page report in which it accused the Burmese authorities and the local armed groups of committing "crimes against humanity in a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Rohingya Muslims" since June 2012.On December 8 this year, Vijay Nambiar, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary-General on Myanmar, urgedAung San Suu Kyi –  the Nobel peace prize winner and head of the Burmese government – "to listen to her inner voice and speak directly to the people of Myanmar, asking them to rise above their ethnic, religious and other differences."....

    Who Are Those Who Will Believe And Those Who Will Not?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    There are many people who show an unflinching determination to disregard half of the relevant evidence! In Psychology this is called cognitive bias where we pay attention only to facts that support our prejudices. Uncomfortable evidence that contradicts our theory causes what is called cognitive dissonance. An honest way of dealing with cognitive dissonance is to revise our opinion/theory taking the full facts of the case into consideration. Dishonest ways are by way of discounting, falsifying, or by ignoring altogether the evidence that does not suit our purpose.....

    Uniform Civil Code or Islamic Reform?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The position of AIMPLB is only furthering the agenda of the BJP. If the BJP wants to portray the Muslims as the regressive minority, the AIMPLB is more than willing to act like one. By not engaging with the questionnaire of the law commission, it does not realise that it is sending a wrong message to other communities that Muslims remain committed to be wedded to the norms of a bygone era and refuse to come out of it. Granted that BJP might be willing to polarise society for electoral purposes, granted that it has a hidden agenda; ....
