Islam,Terrorism and Jihad

SIMI chief Safdar Nagori told interrogators, he had parted ways with SIMI and floated his own group that he called Muslim Technical Persons Organisation. It was a group that was formed in Hyderabad to create a pool of young Muslim technocrats. But his men primarily looked for computer professionals and those with know-how of chemicals, reports Haider Naqvi in Hindustan Times, New Delhi.

 

Jihad is a more complex thing than what it is made out to be by the strategy experts in the West. It is not just war against infidels. There has been continuous internal debate among Muslims about the many meanings of jihad. The
ethical and spiritual aspects of the word jihad are just being overlooked. US-based Pakistani historian Ayesha Jalal speaks to Srinivas Parsa.

 

MUMBAI\DELHI: In a dramatic development in the terror email case, US national Ken Haywood, who had yet to be given a clean chit, flew out of the country with his family from Delhi on Sunday night despite a look-out notice given to the immigration authorities....Maharashtra's Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), which had summoned Haywood for questioning on Monday afternoon, was at a loss to explain how a person under investigation in a terror case managed to slip away. In fact, this has led to speculation that the Indian government allowed him to leave the country

 

"To crack down on those terrorist activities in accordance with laws is conducive to uniting the Chinese people and safeguarding national unification," said Mao Gongning, a Cinese official.

 

TRIPOLI: Libya and the United States signed a deal on Thursday to compensate all US and Libyan victims of bombings or their relatives, clearing the way for the former foes to completely normalise ties.

A series of terrorist attacks during the last ten days in the Xinjiang province is drawing attention to the new prospect of an Islamist jihad against China. Timed to coincide with the opening of the Beijing Olympics, the violence in China’s has claimed more than 30 lives, writes singapore-based Indian journalist and academic C Raja Mohan.

 

Shortly before four British Muslims, three of them of Pakistani origin, blew themselves up in the London Underground on July 7, I traveled along the Indus River to Akora Khattack in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan. Here, straddling the noisy, truck-thundering Islamabad highway, stands the Haqqania, one of the most radical of the religious schools called madrasas, wrote William Dalrymple in The New York Book Review.

 

MUMBAI: US national Ken Haywood and the CEO of a multinational company were on Wednesday subjected to a polygraph and brain mapping tests at the state forensic science laboratory in Kalina.

 

As many as 800 terror modules were "disrupted" in the country over the past four years, National Security Advisor MK Narayanan revealed in an interview published on Tuesday.

 

Two terror attacks in the past week have thrown the spotlight on China’s northwestern Muslim majority region of Xinjiang. But the emergence of separatist groups in the region is diverting attention away from the real problems on the ground, writes Ananth Krishnan. 

 

Islam is once again under the scanner, with the unearthing of the Students’ Islamic Movement of India (Simi) terror trail. With the logo of its offshoot, the ‘Indian Mujahideen’, displaying guns on either side of the Quran, the connection made with Islam is ugly. And misguiding, says Firoz Bakht Ahmed, a commentator on social and religious issues.

 

WASHINGTON: The top US commander in Afghanistan Thursday publicly accused Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate of "some complicity" over time with militant groups fomenting violence in Afghanistan.

 

WHEN President George W. Bush visited India in 2006, a proud Prime Minister Manmohan Singh informed the leader of the free world that unlike in Pakistan and the rest of the world, there were no Indian Muslims in Al-Qaeda ranks...The Indian Muslims were somehow different — more progressive and more reasonable, all thanks to the great Indian democracy....But I am not so sure now. The series of terror attacks in recent times, from Hyderabad to Bangalore to Ahmedabad, have shaken not only the Indian state but the Muslim community as well, writes Aijaz Zaka Syed in Arab News.

 

URUMQI, CHINA: An Islamic group that has threatened to attack the Olympics released a new video warning Muslims to avoid planes, trains and buses used by Chinese, a US group that monitors militant organisations said.

 

NEW DELHI: Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) is one of the 34 banned outfits in the country but around 50 of its fronts, which work as cover for the terrorist group, are carrying out their business as usual.

 

Indian Mujahideen, the group that says it bombed Ahmedabad, taps into a deep sense of grievance among India's Muslims, writes Randeep Ramesh in the guardian.co.uk.

Mahore: In this remote hamlet on the foothills of Pir Panjal range of Reasi district, Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus have come together to fight militancy. Secularism is not merely a theoretical concept for the residents but they live it every day, reports Luv Puri of The hindu.

 

Since the serial blasts in the southern city of Hyderabad last August, India's intelligence has failed to pick up leads. "That explains the complete dearth of intelligence on the groups responsible for this year's serial explosions in Jaipur, Bangalore and Ahmedabad. Our intelligence has become too dependent on technology," says BB Nandi, one of India's best known spymasters. A report by  Subir Bhaumik, BBC News, Calcutta.

 

AHMEDABAD: A couple of years back, a Muslim police officer went to visit a colleague from the same community, who was on his death bed suffering from cancer. When the patient saw him, he grabbed the officer's hand and pleaded: "I have very little time left. I have done so much wrong in life. We have killed some innocent people, branding them terrorists. Do go to their families and apologize on my behalf." A Times of India report by Prashant Dayal.

 

NEW DELHI: Prominent Muslim organisations have described the serial bomb blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad as a heinous crime against entire humanity. The All India Milli Council, Jamaat-Islami Hind and All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat said that no effort should be spared to nab the culprits behind these dastardly crimes. They offered condolences and sympathies to the families of those killed and also the injured.

 

AT LEAST 16 policemen in northwest China were killed on Monday in a suspected terrorist attack, raising security fears four days before the Beijing Olympics. In what was one of the deadliest assaults in China in years, a truck was aimed at 70 police officers jogging near their barracks in Kashgar, a city in the Muslim majority Xinjiang region...Oil- rich Xinjiang is home to 8 million Turkish- speaking Uighurs.
