    Starving and Bombed Children of Yemen Seek Entrapment in Flooded Thai Cave
    Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

    While the world watched and waited with bated breath for the outcome of the substantial global effort – involving over 100 cave divers from various countries, 1,000 members of the Thai Army and 10,000 others in various roles – to rescue a team of 12 young football players and their coach, who were trapped inside a flooded cave in Thailand for 17 days, 850,000 children were killed by human adults in other parts of the world, many of them simply starved to death in Yemen or other parts of Africa, Asia and Central/South America.

    Am I pleased that the 12 children and their coach in Thailand were rescued? Of course I am. I just wish that an equivalent effort was being made to rescue each of the 50,000 children we will kill today, tomorrow, the next day and the day after that….

    Reasons for the Cancerous Spread of Takfirist Ideology in Parts of the Muslim World
    Habib Ali Al Jifri

    The first one is the rejection of the diversity of opinions. This diversity is often a result of the application of scholars’ independent legal judgement (Ijtihad) to religious textual evidence that is non-definitive in its meaning. This leads to two things: an increased inability for the representatives of religion to embrace changes in the world from one perspective, and an expansion of the spheres of war in the Muslim world from another. The second reason is the association of “non-belief” with killing and deviancy. Such tendency fails to recognise the Sharia’s legal distinction between a combatant disbeliever and a civilian disbeliever....

    Pakistan’s General Election Is Unlikely to Change Its Fundamental Realities

    The conviction of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by an accountability court last Friday has set the stage for him to portray himself as the latest martyr for democracy. He has argued, as others have done before him, that he is being punished not for corruption but for standing up to Pakistan’s invisible government — the military-intelligence combine that has dominated the country effectively since 1958....

    Islamic Ideology

    Even as radical Muslim groups claim religious sanction for their acts of terror, other Muslim groups, including noted Islamic scholars, insist that terrorism has no room whatsoever in Islam. In recent years, several noted Islamic scholars have even issued Fatwas condemning terrorism as unambiguously anti-Islamic. Scores of books have been penned by Muslim writers, debunking the misinterpretations of Islam by radical Islamist ideologues to suit their agendas. Yet, so far relatively little attention has been given to studying the Quranic attitude towards terrorism as a punishable crime and the punishment for terrorism....

    The Siren Call Of ‘Pure’ Islam, Not A Reaction To Racism, Alienation Or Islamophobia
    Hasan Suroor

    To still insist on the validity of old assumptions about Muslim radicalisation is to ignore the elephant in the room: the pull of religion. Radicals are responding to the IS call for Islamic revival. Nothing more, nothing less. Other factors — alienation, searching for a “meaning’’ in life, the lure of adventure — is secondary. The alienation theory was long busted after it turned out that many, if not all, of those attracted to extremism were actually well-adjusted and well-integrated into their communities. And the notion of testosterone-fuelled boys dying for a slice of Jihadi adventure has been disproved by schoolgirls and housewives heading for jihad. .... The process of radicalisation is a lot more complex than is assumed, but the ultimate pull factor is religion. Any de-radicalisation strategy, in order to be effective, will have to be anchored in a religious counter-narrative. And it will have to come from imams and Maulvis — not from counter-extremism think tanks and reformed radicals.

    Muslim world is yet to liberate itself from the stranglehold of outdated dogmas, which have nothing to do with the real teachings and the true spirit of Islam. Muslim scholars and intellectuals must develop the spirit of free enquiry in finding the answers to challenges of modernity while remaining faithful to Islam’s eternal principles enunciated in the Holy Quran. Religious extremism and sectarianism which are tearing apart the Muslim world must be abandoned. This is unlikely to happen unless the Muslim governments give the pride of place to education and encourage freedom of expression and moderation in their programmes, which is not the case at present.....

    One of the most pressing issues in the eyes of the early Muslims was the protection of Qur’an’s sanctity. Numerous times throughout the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him), the Muslims are reminded that the Jews and Christians corrupted their texts over time, which now cannot be taken as authentic. As a result, early Muslims developed an isnad system for ensuring that the Qur’an and Hadith would not be subject to change by human error, either intentional or unintentional....

    While Wahhabism has adherents around the world, many Muslims detest it, because it considers Shiites and followers of other non-Sunni sects — not to mention Christians and Jews — to be infidels. Others blame Saudi Arabia’s promotion of Wahhabism abroad for giving theological fuel to groups like Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, an accusation Saudi officials reject. “It is important for Saudis who are living now, in this century, to know that the state came from a specific place that has been preserved and that it was built on an idea, a true, correct and tolerant ideology that respected others,” said Abdullah Arrakban of the High Commission for the Development of Riyadh that oversees the project....

    '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....
