Islam,Terrorism and Jihad

Terrorists Are Fighting the Windmill
Babar Ayaz

One, the rise of religious extremism and terrorism is not peculiar to the followers of Islam; other major religions are also affected. The difference is that there are no major terrorist movements in Christianity, Hinduism, Brahmanism and Judaism. The critics may say that state terrorism on behalf of these religions should not be ignored...

 

In The Age of ISIS, Who’s A Terrorist, And Who’s Simply Deranged?
Eric Schmitt

“Every attack is discussed endlessly on television and social media, which heightens fear of future attacks, makes citizens scared of one another” and puts pressure on governments to look tough...

What Kind of Prime Minister Are You, Shiekh Hasina?
Javed Anand

“The message that there is only one form, a form alien to this land, of belief and practice, that of the Wahhabi/Salafis who are not part of the four Mazhabs of the Islamic Sunni belief is now being pushed with full force as the current agenda. Many killed in brutal manner have been believers, Pirs, Shias, Ahmedias, followers of the Sufi tradition, priests from other religions, writers who were not necessarily atheists”....

 

Terrorism cannot be stopped by force. This is a fundamental truth that needs to be acknowledged. It is a brilliant concept—it can only be countered conceptually. We need radical ideas born out of a new imagination; force is on the verge of exhausting itself...

 

Iran’s Empty Condemnation of Terrorism: While Denouncing the Orlando Shooter, Tehran Leads the World in Attacks
Tom Ridge

And yet, it is sadly possible that those not paying attention to circumstances inside the Islamic Republic might be lulled by the Orlando statement into more wishful thinking that domestic reform is still just around the corner. ...

 

The assailants in last week's assassination escaped but the murders seem of a piece with a wave of extremist – and some claim Wahhabi – inspired aggression against Sufi shrines in south Asia...

 

Those in Pakistan Who Accused Amjad Sabri of Blasphemy Are Now Mourning His Death
Fatima Tassadiq

The militant outfit is not alone in considering the Qawwali, which has long been part of the Sufi tradition in the subcontinent, as heretical. Many Sufi practices are frowned upon as deviant within the more puritan religious movements that have become increasingly popular in Pakistan during the last few decades....

 

Reckoning With the Lone Wolf
R.K. Raghavan

My response is that an ounce of optimism is preferable to a pound of cynicism. Simultaneous to efforts aimed at deradicalisation will have to be the strengthening of law enforcement and the rest of the criminal justice system.  Preventive detention at the merest suspicion — as long as such action is provided for in law and is subject to eventual oversight by the judiciary — of persons who share and disseminate...

 

Getting Personal in the War vs. Islamic State
Jeff Seldin

"What we call the cheerleaders and fanboys and wannabes — people who aren't actually members of ISIL, who aren't actually in Syria, but are, essentially, freelance supporters, often based in the West — they are the ones who are giving the group its online oomph,"...

 
Fear and Loathing in Dhaka
Syed Badrul Ahsan

Fear and Loathing in Dhaka
Syed Badrul Ahsan

An air of despondency hangs low over Bangladesh. And that is only natural, given that as many as 49 citizens — Hindus, Christians, academics, bloggers, publishers and foreigners — have lost their lives at the hands of Islamist militants in the past two years....

 

...if we are serious about preventing the next Orlando, then we may have to give equal and separate attention to risk factors that have nothing to do with 'Islamic terrorism.'...

Mateen Was An Islamic Extremist, Wasn’t He?
Rod Liddle

Life is speeded up. It used to be that when a hideous atrocity occurred people waited a day or two, even a week, before co-opting it into their political armoury. Now it happens while the smell of cordite is still in the air and before the blood has dried. There is a breathtaking shamelessness....

 

Four of the five convicted and executed in the latest round of trials were leaders in the country’s largest Islamist political party, Jamaat-e-Islami, outraging Muslim fundamentalists and others....

 

Bangladesh Is In the Grip of Islamist Mayhem, So It Blames Israel
Ishaan Tharoor

Controversial moves to prosecute and execute war criminals from the country's bloody struggle for independence in 1971 pushed Islamist factions deeper underground and have perhaps provoked a violent counter-response.....

 

The Madrasas in Pakistan's Tribal Grounds Are Factories of Suicide Bombers
Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

The new chief of Afghan Taliban Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada is a product of Pakistani madrasas (religious seminaries) and still leads a string of madrasas across Pakistan's south-western Balochistan.....

 

The Islamic State (ISIS) has successfully managed to radicalise and attract to its ranks several Indian-origin youth from the huge diaspora in West Asian countries, Indian security agencies have found. Refusing to speculate on the exact number of Indians who have joined the ISIS, a top intelligence official told this newspaper: “How many of Indian-origin youth have left from West Asia to join the ISIS we don’t know. We have some leads, but it is difficult to say anything conclusively now.” Already the number of Indians who have joined the ISIS has been revised from around 25 to about 40 now.

 

The Fuss about ISIS and What Bangladesh Needs To Do
Muhammad Nurul Huda

The inescapable fact is that the ultimate responsibility of breeding a violent culture and its multiple social ramifications shall fall on state agencies that fail to see the ominous signals of religious extremism and perhaps willy-nilly nurture and protect the so-called Jihadi groups....

 

Teaching Anti-Extremism in Kenya
Alexis Okeowo

“We want to give them that confidence, so that, in the event they are approached, they know what to do,” he continued. Somalis, Somali-Kenyans, Muslim Kenyans, and even Christian Kenyans were caught in a state of crisis, he observed. “If we keep quiet and don’t talk about these issues, there is a chance we will lose these young people.”....

 

Debate over Bangladeshi Militants' External Connections
Ali Riaz

The IS/AQIS is capable of providing additional resources and a global stage for these menacing groups. It is a matter of time and opportunity before such a tie can flourish. Therefore, it is imperative to acknowledge that denial cannot be a strategy, and that it is necessary to act in earnest....

 

Behind the Barricades of Turkey’s Hidden War
Robert F. Worth

The battle against the Islamic State had made the downtrodden Kurds into heroes. In the weeks and months that followed, the Kurds watched in amazement as fighters aligned with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party or P.K.K. — long branded a terrorist group by Turkey and the United States — became the central protagonists in the defence of Kobani.....

 

Coming To Avenge Babri, Kashmir, Gujarat, Muzaffarnagar: ISIS Video
Praveen Swami

“Do not listen to those who tell you that Islam is a religion of peace”, one jihadist says, his face digitally masked over. “Islam was never a religion of peace for even one day. Islam is a religion of war. The Prophet commanded us to remain at war until the day the rule of Allah is established”. The video mocks Muslims protesting against the Islamic State....

If extremist movements are not curbed, Bangladesh could well become an epicentre for Islamic radicalism. Given its proximity to other substantial Muslim populations in both south and Southeast Asia, the emergence of such religious extremism could have profound destabilising consequences well beyond the reaches of the country....

 

The Real Source of Terror in Bangladesh
William B. Milam

Some of those are a legacy of the war in Afghanistan, in which some Bangladeshis fought; others are by-products of the Wahhabi influence that Bangladeshi workers in the Persian Gulf brought back when they returned home....

 

We Need To Acknowledge the Link between Joining ISIS and Supporting an Islamic State
Mubaraz Ahmed

That doesn’t mean saying there is a problem with the Muslim community as a whole. Let’s not forget, they are the prime targets and first victims of Isis and their fellow Jihadis. The answer lies in combating the politicisation of Islam. Only then can we distinguish religion from politics and faith from fanaticism....
