    Radical Islamism and Jihad

     Al-Zawahiri begins by addressing "Muslim sisters," particularly those who wear the Hijab, saying the current war rages against the Islamic Ummah at all levels – militarily, politically, ideologically, culturally, educationally, or economically and others. He says: "The reason behind this war is the danger the Muslim Ummah poses to the existence of the modern global system, which is controlled by the leading [international] criminals."...

    Islam and Pluralism

    Education for Peace, an initiative of the New Age Islam Foundation organised the first session of the three-day workshop titled “Angels of Peace Pilot Project” on January 3, 2014 on the theme: Islam is Religion of Peace and Pluralism. It was aimed at bringing students from different madrasas into interaction with each other and learn from Islamic scholars about Islam's inclusivist, pluralist message, encouraging co-existence among all communities as well as the value of modern, secular education. ... The prime concern of the workshop was raising awareness among madrasa students about Islam’s teachings of global peace, religious harmony, inclusiveness, tolerance, Prophet Muhammad’s dealings with non-Muslims and importance of modern, secular education along with religious education. ...

    These students imbued with Islamic teachings of inclusiveness, pluralism and now understanding the value of secular education in Islam this week will now have a face-off next week with mostly non-Muslim students from government schools. These face-off sessions between several small groups of madrasa and non-madrasa students will be monitored by senior students and scholars who are well-versed in Islamic teachings of inclusiveness and the value of secular education in Islam. The basic idea is to encourage pluralist thoughts and understanding of Islam's inclusivist message of harmonious co-existence among madrasa students as well as provide a practical opportunity of practicing pluralism with students from different backgrounds.  Most students living in madrasa hostels and even Muslim ghettos are deprived of practical opportunities of interacting with students from different backgrounds and talking to them openly and frankly about concerns of their identity and role in a secular, multicultural, multi-religious society. They will be doing this in the Education for Peace premises in a monitored environment in the next weeks, but hopefully benefit from this experience in their life…..

    Islamic Ideology

    "Islam is a religion that has never been forced upon. The very idea that a conversion into Islam is one Way Street in which one can never turn from is a much dissipated myth. The Quran prohibits Muslims to force Islam onto an individual. Muslims past and present have largely converted into Islam out of their own free will. ... Again, no authority has been granted to Muslims to specifically kill the apostates of Islam should they mean no harm. Apostates are to be treated fairly as non-Muslims. Compulsion will not make sense in Islam."….

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    One of the most influential groups in the jihadist movement is al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Jihadist activity in Yemen has been cyclical. Yemen was the location of the first jihadist attacks against U.S. interests in December 1992, and it was the site of one of the first Predator strikes against jihadists in November 2002. The U.S. and Yemeni campaign against jihadists in Yemen was initially considered one of the successes in the "Global War on Terrorism," but a February 2006 jailbreak from a high-security prison outside Sanaa and political chaos in Yemen allowed the jihadist movement there to re-energize…..

    Why have Fatwas against Islamist Terrorism failed as A Counter-Terrorism Tool, Explains Sultan Shahin in a Conference in Birmingham, And Suggests the Kind of Fatwa Required

    Numerous fatwas (edicts) have been issued by ulema (Islamic scholars) across the globe, particularly since 9/11 in a bid to stem the tide of Islamist terrorism. Tens of thousands of ulema have endorsed these fatwas issued by influential institutions of Islamic learning of all sects in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh as well as other parts of the world. When issued, these fatwas inspired great expectations. As perceptive and insightful an observer as Mr. Ziauddin Sardar proclaimed “the beginning of the end of the war of terror” when a hundred thousand Deobandi ulema endorsed a fatwa issued by the hundred-year-old Islamic madrasa in Deoband, India, “unequivocally denouncing terrorism,” in June 2008. Similarly, Sufism-oriented Barailwis, hard-line Salafis, Ahl-e-Hadeesis, have all denounced Islamist terrorism in their separate or joint statements. But terrorist ideology continues to attract our youth, particularly in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. What used to be merely a Pakistan-sponsored secessionist struggle is showing signs of tuning into an Islamist struggle for the establishment of Islamic Sharia through a universal Caliphate, very much redolent of the objectives of the so-called Islamic State or ISIS.  Popularizing the slogan of “Shariatya Shahadat,” a militant leader Zakir Musa, Burhan Wani’s successor, even threatened to kill Hurriyat leaders for calling Kashmir’s separatist movement political and not religious. Calling them “hypocrites, infidels, followers of evil”, the militant had warned to chop off their heads to be hanged in Lal Chowk in Srinagar, “if they create hurdles in the path of making Kashmir an Islamic State”....
