    Islam and the West

    One Country’s War Changed the World
    Anne Barnard

    The world seems awash in chaos and uncertainty, perhaps more so than at any point since the end of the Cold War. Authoritarian-leaning leaders are on the rise in Europe, and liberal democracy itself seems under siege. The post-World War II order is fraying as fighting spills across borders and international institutions — built, at least in theory, to act as brakes on wanton slaughter — fail to provide solutions. Populist movements on both sides of the Atlantic are not just riding anti-establishment anger, but stoking fears of a religious “other,” this time Muslims....

    For A More Just World
    Aijaz Zaka Syed

    No wonder words like the UN resolutions, peace process and international community invariably evoke cynicism in the Middle East. The UN has been extraordinarily prompt and effective in dealing with the so-called rogue regimes across the Muslim world but has been totally helpless in the face of real offenders and crimes against humanity.....

     
    Islam and the West

    To think that by backing anti-Assad forces or removing him from power will lead to a flowering of democracy and peace is a fantasy. It would behoove this administration to examine the tumultuous French experience in Syria under the League of Nations mandate; we are not dealing with Anglo-Saxons. Unless the United States and the West is prepared to put troops on the ground, who would be first welcomed and then shot at, it is advisable to stay out and make them sort it out on their own...

    The True Cost of Israel
    Philip Giraldi

    But even without that war, the U.S.-Israeli bilateral relationship has been an expensive proposition for Americans. Whether Israel is a strategic liability or not, or whether its complicated geostrategic situation merits virtually unquestioning support from the United States, the reality is that it has a lopsided relationship with Washington.....

    So why is it, finally, that Ms. Le Pen cannot become president? Because while the far right has changed its discourse, the mainstream elites still hold on to their old ways of seeing the world, or imagining what it is. Their analysis of the rise of populism is out of sync. It rests on assumptions, faulty reasoning and denial.....

    Respect for Women in Islam  इस्लाम में नारी जाति का सम्मान
    Talha Haroon, New Age Islam

    इस्लाम में महिलाओं का बड़ा ऊंचा स्थान है। इस्लाम ने महिलाओं को अपने जीवन के हर भाग में महत्व प्रदान किया है। माँ के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, पत्नी के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, बेटी के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, बहन के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, विधवा के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, खाला के रूप में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है, तात्पर्य यह कि विभिन्न परिस्थितियों में उसे सम्मान प्रदान किया है जिन्हें बयान करने का यहाँ अवसर नहीं हम तो बस उपर्युक्त कुछ स्थितियों में इस्लाम में महिलाओं के सम्मान पर संक्षिप्त में प्रकाश डालेंगे।

    Listen To Sonu Nigam, Please
    C. M. Naim

    Undistorted and un-amplified, an ordinary human’s voice was perfectly able to do the task in the days when few people had alarm clocks or, for that matter, even a wristwatch. But now, even the tiny mosque in my neighborhood that can accommodate no more than 50 or 60 people has two loudspeakers tied to its minaret, and a sound system that sends its call out to a body of people 50 times larger than its capacity. But one cannot suggest a change. Apparently, the people who attend the neighborhood mosque can do perfectly well without an amplified alarm in all aspects of their daily lives except when it comes to reaching the mosque to form a congregation. Their grandfathers could do without loudspeakers but not these stalwarts of the 21st century. ….

    The Lynching of Mashal Khan Proves Pakistan is Dystopic
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    And yet the Prophet himself gave us a very different message. One of the stories about him is that he was daily abused by a woman when he used to preach the message of Islam. The Prophet never rebuked her but actually went to her house and inquired about her health when she fell ill. That message seems to have been lost on his followers. They want to do what the Prophet never taught. Perhaps this generation of Muslims understand Islam much better than the Prophet himself. Allah definitely warns all those who insult the Prophet, but then he goes on to say that He is the only one to judge them. But today, Muslims have themselves become the judge, the jury and the executioner in cases related to blasphemy...

    All India Muslim Personal Law Board and the Circus around Triple Talaq
    Nishat Amber

    The ambiguity in the interpretation of civil and criminal laws by clerics is also pretty evident from some of the infamous incidents in the country such as the ‘Imrana rape case’. In the said case, a woman from Uttar Pradesh who was raped by her father-in-law was asked by the local minority community Panchayat to treat her husband as her son. The local Panchayat also termed her marriage to her husband as null and void. The leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom too issued a fatwa supporting the stand taken by the local Panchayat on the issue.....

    Marriage and Divorce in Religions and As Given In Quran

    Just one feature of the religious/Sharia practice is focused on here; that of couple seeking reunion in marriage after their ‘final divorce’ has taken place. This final divorce is the one that is enforced by Quran following reconciliation of the couple to come together in marriage twice previously, having gone through two divorces....

    Empowerment of Women in Islam: Now and Then
    Dr. Mohammad Ghitreef, New Age Islam

    Islam brought to women their dignity, freedom, justice and equality. It infused in them a sense of self confidence and a seeking sprite of truth and hunger for knowledge .That is why in early Islam a woman is seen participating in all the vibrant social activates, say, learning knowledge, propagating it even teaching men for that matter, participating even in war zone and political arena. In prophetic era Hazrat Ayesha as first lady of Islam not only was a great Aalima having deep knowledge of Quran and Hadith, but was enjoying an expertise in areas of Arabic poetry, medicine teaching and jurisprudence….

    Attack on Sufi Shrine in Balochistan: An Honest Introspection on the Islamists’ Cultural War in the Sub-Continent Required
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    This is a trying time for all the Sufi practitioners and shrine-visitors in India and Pakistan. First time in the history, Ajmer Sharif--the biggest Sufi shrine in India--is being used in a large political campaign of the Jami'at Ulema-e-Hind (JUH), whose key members and religio-politicians declare Sufism "un-Islamic", yet chose the largest Sufi shrine to organise their 33th annual conference, clearly in an attempt to woo the mainstream Sufi-oriented Muslims in India….

    Suffice it to say that Quran calls for conservation of animal life and therefore has nominated a long period in which hunting is prohibited so as to give animals time to recover from the depletion of its population at the hands of mankind. Therefore, animals being also a community of creation, it is to be cherished and husbanded sustainably....

    Zakir Naik’s Open Letter: Democrat or an Islamo-Fascist Demagogue?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    If one is hell bent on arguing that Islam is the best religion in the world and that polytheism of the Hindus is a backward and deplorable religious worldview, then how does this promote peace and tolerance? If he continues to justify that Islam alone is the saviour of world, then how does this promote peace and mutual respect? Calling such sermons of a third rate pedant as dialogue militates against the very idea of a dialogical plural world. Zakir Naik is not interested in dialogue: he is a fascist demagogue who wants all the world to convert to his point of view.

    His hypocrisy on democracy begins to unravel the minute he takes recourse to the Quran. There are many passages within the text to cite in terms of pluralism and tolerance. But to quote the verse which tells Muslims to be patient and wait for their eventual victory over the polytheists is perhaps too much. This is not a man who is a believer in the virtues of secular laws like democracy. This is a man who wants to unfurl the Islamic flag everywhere, demean and trounce all other religious traditions. The recourse to democracy and the language of rights are only a means to an end: that of establishing the supremacy of Islam. ....

    Allah Hafiz vs. Khuda Hafiz
    Almas Kiran Shamim

    A Christian from Pakistan can use ‘Khuda’; a Zoroastrian from Iran can use ‘Khuda’. This, by no means, implies that a Muslim from either Pakistan or Iran cannot use ‘Khuda’. When you say that ‘Khuda’ can also mean the Christian God or the Parsi God or even the Sikh or Hindu God, you are actually trying to say that there IS a Christian God, a Parsi God, a Sikh God, and a Hindu God besides a Muslim God Allah.....

    The Fight for Muslim Women’s Rights: Toward a Scriptural Hermeneutic of Islamic Feminism
    Dr. Adis Duderija, New Age Islam

    A Salafi worldview/epistemology is based on a hermeneutical mechanism central classical Islamic law which at least, in theory, a  priori privileges the interpretive efforts of the early Muslim communities (especially the distinguished Companions and the Successors) over all others. When combined with the other mechanisms explained above a Salafi worldview/epistemology implies a subscription to an epistemologically pre-modern episteme that lacks internal hermeneutical mechanisms to incorporate ethical values and system of ethics that were not prevalent at the time of the formative and classical periods of Islamic thought into its ethical and legal canon....

    Radical Islamism, In Any Form or Fashion, Is Not Compatible With the Pluralistic and Democratic Indian Ethos
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    This is a tough time for introspection on part of the Indian Ulema and Islamic scholars. Merely organising large anti-terrorism conferences will do no service to the community. Time they combat the exclusivist, xenophobic, misogynistic and anti-plural religious underpinnings, be they embedded in Salafism, the Saudi state religion, or any other strain of Islam. Radical Islamism, in any form or fashion, is not compatible with the secular, pluralistic and democratic Indian ethos...

    Missile Attack at Makka Mukarrama: Why Are the Indian Muslim Religio-Politicians Silent Onlookers?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Muslim leaders and politicians in India are busy in a crazy competition of organizing conferences, greater campaigns and processions to protect their ‘right to triple Talaq’. Countrywide hue and cry is still being heard from the self-imposed Muslim representatives championing the cause of Tahaffuz-e-Shariat (protection of Shariah).  “Islam is under attack” is their daily sloganeering in India. But what about the birthplaces of Islam—Makka and Madina— which suffer the brutal and bloodthirsty attacks?...

    Haji Ali for All: The Hon'ble Mumbai High Court Did Not Agree With the Mullahs’ Claim That Islam Is a Backward, Regressive Religion
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The second observation of the Court was that they wanted to know if segregation was an essential feature of the Islamic faith. It is a matter of great shame that the Dargah trustees went at length to prove that it was essential to the Islamic faith. Marshalling passages from the Quran and Hadees, they went at great lengths to show how Islam indeed was a backward, regressive religion which limited the movement of women. The Court however was not convinced and could not find any merit in the argument that allowing women to pray at the Dargah will fundamentally alter the faith of Islam....
