The challenge is great, but so is the power of a concerted effort by world powers, combined with the will, manpower and knowledge of moderate regional actors. Among these important allies are Kurdish forces, the Free Syrian Army, many moderate tribes in Iraq, and other moderate militias....

 
Dealing With Boko Haram
Amino Abubakar & Aderogba Obisesan

Boko Haram has resorted to suicide bombers — many of them young children — to wage its war for an independent “Islamic” state in the country. The extremist group has also spread its bombing campaign to neighboring Cameroon, Chad and Niger.

 

The Bangladeshi government has also intensified its crackdown on Islamist groups involved in killing secular bloggers, but Wolf thinks it is far from enough, saying: “Bangladesh has effectively been transformed into an Islamic state. As a result, Islamist parties have been able to assume a bigger role in the country’s politics. ...

ISIS’ War on Christmas
Kamel Daoud

Pointing out that Christmas is Jesus’ birthday and that Jesus is a recognized prophet in the genealogy of the Quran would have served no purpose. The Islamists’ mental cartography is binary: “Dar el-Islam, Dar el-Koffr” — Land of Islam versus Land of Impiety. They want to de-Westernize the Arab world.

 

When a Taliban suicide bomber infiltrated a play being staged in a high school attached to the French cultural institute here, it was not clear at first who the target was. The audience was packed with diplomats and prominent Afghans, and the bomber made his way to the front row, where he blew himself up next to a German spectator, killing him.

Terrorism And Us

When a society itself has no qualms about coming across as intolerant and extremist, then one really cannot blame outsiders for showing Pakistan in a negative light or dragging it in as a prime suspect in terrorist incident. Despite the invigoration of NAP, the will to override writ of the state is quite strong. ...

While the Indian Mujahideen remains to be crushed, the Islamic State, which has already declared its intention to strike in India, is making recruits. It will be unwise to think it will not grow here. Those who were dismissive of it when it first emerged in Syria and Iraq are now eating their words. It will be defeated but not before it has played havoc with the lives of millions and left a large territory in West Asia in ruins. We cannot take the slightest chance in India.

The politicization of our religion has become an everyday trend.  And it is not restricted to governments.  Terror groups such as Daesh (the self-proclaimed IS) or Al-Qaeda all chant verses from the Holy Qur’an while they go about their murderous missions.  The powers behind such mobs usually have the virtues of Islam as the last thing on their minds.

A 2009 studyconducted by the Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point concluded conservatively that al-Qaeda has killed eight times as many Muslims as non-Muslims.

Five Reasons Why We Must NOT Censor ISIS Propaganda
Dr. Azeem Ibrahim

In the circumstances, it is perhaps understandable that there have been calls on the mainstream media to curtail the coverage they give to ISIS. When terrorists carry out attacks like the ones in Paris last month, they court media attention more than anything. And on the face of it, at least, it would seem that the most immediate retort would be to deny them the publicity they crave. But I believe that would be the wrong response.

 

Pakistan is likely to proceed with caution against LeT. The outfit is widely thought of as South Asia’s most lethal terrorist group. And through Falah-e-Insaniat it runs a vast and popular nationwide welfare organisation. A year ago, for instance, it was their ambulances and volunteers that were most prominent at the many funerals held on a cold winter’s day in Peshawar.

Afghanistan: devastations of the ‘great game’

By Lal Khan

Compiled by New Age Islam Edit Bureau

 

Perhaps the most significant finding is that military action alone cannot rid the country of the threat posed by the militants. Local observers and foreign analysts (who often have better sources of information than Pakistanis themselves) both agree on the urgency of challenging the militants’ ideology and blunting its appeal to the common Pakistani.... Unfortunately the government has failed to use its own institutions — from the Council of Islamic Ideology to the judicial academy and departments of Islamiat in colleges and universities — to counter the extremists’ version of religion. A full-blooded programme to rid Islamic thought of the stamp of a certain imperialism, to borrow a phrase from Iqbal, is the minimum requirement of a narrative that could dismantle the militants’ case and secure Pakistan against threats that are becoming more and more ominous.

The prevalence of that ideology has become a factor even in the news and entertainment industry. Take, for instance, the relatively mainstream commentator and television host Zaid Hamid, with almost 800,000 “likes” on his official Facebook page and a warm relationship with Pakistan’s de facto military rulers, who has long espoused views regarded elsewhere as extremist or at least on the fringe.

Funding Terror through Extortion in Pakistan
Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

Extortion has become rampant across Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in particular, and, in fact, across Pakistan at large. The failure of the state to control this menace has contributed directly to the capacities of terrorist groups to sustain their operations, undermining the security of citizens and the state across the country.

 

The government of Pakistan should be commended for the swift response to the hate speech. It is part of the National Action Plan initiative by the administration to nip these plants in the bud before they grow into poisonous bushes. It may seem like a tiny step, but in context of this nation’s history, it is a giant one.

With its deep roots in politics, Jamaat has experienced lots of ups and downs. Its major setback was its stand against the independence of Bangladesh and its great success was it was part of the government with two ministerial posts during the two regimes of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) under the then prime minister Khaleda Zia.

 

The idea of establishing a “Sunni front” is not something that has just come up over the last few weeks. It is an idea suggested by King Salman of Saudi Arabia to international leaders, including Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan, who went to Riyadh to congratulate him on his ascension to the throne in March this year. A Sunni front consisting of 10 countries was indeed formed by the end of March to take joint action in Yemen. The aim of that Sunni front was proposed by Salman as a stand against “Shiite expansionism backed by Iran” in the Middle East.
