Radical Islamism and Jihad

Sayyid Qutb: Father of Salafi Jihadism, Forerunner of the Islamic State (Part Two)
Sayyid Qutb

Between Sayyid Qutb and the Islamic State, two changes have had to take place within the tradition of Salafi jihadism. A new jurisprudence and ethic of jihad had to be developed and a new hardened and brutalised psychological type had to be born....

 
The Shadow of Daesh on Pakistan
Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

The Shadow of Daesh on Pakistan
Tushar Ranjan Mohanty

It is unlikely that Daesh can extend its direct operational outreach into the AfPak region at a time when it is under increasing pressure in its Syrian and Iraqi heartlands, but the audacity of the attacks executed by its regional affiliates suggests a rising danger and an infusion of a greater lethality into the enduring trends in terrorism and sectarian strife afflicting both Afghanistan and Pakistan.....

 

Afghanistan, Pakistan and USA: Foreign Targets
Ajit Kumar Singh

Despite mounting losses, the Taliban remains unrelenting. Following Donald Trump's victory in the US Presidential Elections, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, stated, on November 9, 2016, "Most importantly, he (Trump) should withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and unlike other former US rulers, he should neither seek any more titles of ignominy for his self and American generals, nor worsen the American prestige, economy and military by engaging in this futile war."....

 

Sayyid Qutb: Father of Salafi Jihadism, Forerunner of the Islamic State (Part One)
Sayyid Qutb

In this way the idea of Jahiliyya is linked in Qutb's thought to Hakimiyah. Hakimiyah has a straightforward meaning - namely, sovereignty. It is used by Qutb to suggest that in the world there are only two possibilities: either God's sovereignty or Man's. In those times or places where God's sovereignty is denied, the condition of spiritual darkness, Jahiliyah, reigns....

 

Bin Laden’s Quest to Divide East and West Was Successful
Sabria S. Jawhar

The election of Donald Trump as the president of the United States is the result of 9/11, the Iraq war, racism and closed borders.  The signs have always been there that has led the American public to elect Trump and marginalize religious and ethnic minorities....

 

Beginning Of the End of ISIS
Makhan Saikia

Besides, losing Mosul will pose a potential threat to the survival of the jihadists’ capital in Raqqa. The opponents of the ISIS will find it much easier to capture the city. As the major supply routes to Raqqa come from Iraq, recapturing of Mosul will finally help the Government forces cut the vital links to the city....

 

The clergy who run these seminaries are presented with unprecedented influence and luxury in the Pakistani society, with the promise of promoting the Saudi or, in case of the Shia seminaries, the Iranian ideology. Millions and millions of the pupils of these seminaries are then trained to serve as God’s army, and a moral brigade in the society, while the military establishment of Pakistan controls a precious chunk of these Mujahideen to set their scores with enemy states like India.....

 

Sleeping With Sectarianism: How Militants Are Becoming a Political Force in Pakistan - Part 1
Mohammad Jibran Nasir

As per a study by Never Forget Pakistan, at least 4,707 Pakistanis have been killed in sectarian violence between January 2001 and August 2016. The killing of Shias has been systematic in terms of targeting places of worship, religious gatherings and community leaders such as doctors, lawyers and clerics. A case for Shia genocide in Pakistan is indeed undeniable....

 

Removing the ‘Radical’ From Islam
Nikos Barbaressos

ISIS has nothing to do with Islam and if we want to stop dividing our country and igniting more hate, the media, and our politicians need to stop using the words ‘radical Islam’ when referring to ISIS or any acts of terror caused by an “Islamic” group. These groups are filled with blood-thirsty individuals who have absolutely no morals, feelings, nor any sort of remorse and could not possibly quote you one verse from the Quran if you asked them to....

Islamic State’s Messianic Apocalypse Is Postponed: but the Defeat of the Jihadist Group May Revive Realism among Sunnis

In the end, IS went with barely a whimper. The jihadists folded before the advance of Turkish-backed rivals after just a day’s battle. IS’s “caliph”, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had foretold of the capitulation in a dream, explained apologists. IS’s propagandists even pre-empted the fall with the launch of a new English title, Rumiya, deferring the end-of-days battle until IS reaches Rome....

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Firebrand Rebrand: Is This a Case of Schrödinger’s Cat for Terrorist Outfits?
Azaz Syed

Just days ago the Punjab counter-terrorism department had declared it had taken care of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. But what do we make of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Al-Almi claiming Monday’s attack on Quetta’s police training camp, killing 61 cadets?...

 

Heaven Can Wait: Jihadist Ideologues May Think a Century Ahead
Owen Bennett-Jones

Before 9/11, the idea of establishing a caliphate would have been almost universally written off as the stuff of fantasy. Today, there are many places where Westerners dare not tread. All over the world people are transfixed by the Jihadis’ capacity to reach their cities. It’s not just New York, Paris and London. The Chechens attack Moscow, the Uighurs bomb Beijing and the Pakistani Punjabis mount their raids on Delhi and Mumbai...

 

The war against the Islamic State is unwinnable without filling the political and security vacuum that now exists in too much of Iraq. The Islamic State’s eventual retreat from Mosul will be a much-needed victory for the country. ...

 

Is Kerala Fertile Ground For Terror Groups Like Islamic State?
Ashraf A Kadakkal

More than 50 journals published by such movements try to prove the genuineness of their view of Islam, while branding the other as “un-Islamic”. Organisations like IS and al-Qaeda are prone to ‘Takfir’ or keeping other groups out of the fold of Islam and wiping them out. In Kerala ‘Takfir’ or ‘Murtad’ are not unheard of, but attacking or wiping out “the other” is....

 

The decrees provide a unique glimpse into life under Daesh’s oppressive control. Some of the Fatwas are absolutely ridiculous; however, they should not be taken likely as people have been killed because of not following them....

 

How Sweden Became an Exporter of Jihad
Yalda Hakim

More than 300 people have gone to fight in Syria and Iraq, making Sweden per capita one of the biggest exporters of jihadists in Europe...

 
The Roots of Islamic Radicalisation in Kerala
Tufail Ahmad for New Age Islam

The Roots of Islamic Radicalisation in Kerala
Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

Addressing the worshippers, he blamed some of the familiar villains like "imperialists, Zionists and fascists" of creating the Islamic State to malign Islam. Kangarappady stated, "One cannot even regard the ISIS as an Islamic terrorist outfit. The ideals they propagate have nothing to do with real Islam." At another Eid Al-Azha prayer in Kozhikode, Sharif Melethil, the imam, told the worshippers, "seeking a mysterious paradise is not jihad." In Islam, there are two spiritual quests for the paradise: one motivates a faithful to live for the life after death, while the other leads Muslims to migrate from non-Muslim lands to countries ruled by Islamic leaders, or Dar-ul-Islam....

Extremism is a Perversion and Islam Has No Place for It
Mohammad Azeemullah

Extremists often misuse religion to justify their ideological violence and in their anger, they often violate the Quran’s message and act contrary to Prophet Muhammad’s message. For instance, one of his sayings goes, “Beware of extremism in religion, for it destroyed those before you.” The Quran acknowledges diversity among people and sets the tone for social tolerance: ....

 

Daesh, Haqqanis and Their Sanctuaries
Imtiaz Gul

Nicholson complained that Pakistan needed to do more than it has done so far against the Haqqanis, implying that this group enjoys shelter and sanctuaries on the Pakistani territory. Such a postulation also evokes questions by Pakistan on the safe havens that the anti-Pakistan Daesh-turned-TTP enjoys in eastern Afghanistan....

 

Combat Terrorism: Safeguard Nation-State Sovereignty
Kazi Wadud Nawaz, New Age Islam

Like most- vaunted Imperialist tools of ‘Democracy and Human Rights’ terrorism   adds another   powerful weapon of world domination in the arsenal of the Corporate Masters. They   already used these weapons in Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. And now they are going after Syria and Iraq for Balkanizing the Middle-East. Terrorist Organizations like Al-Qaeda, IS, Al-Nusra,  Boko Haram  etc. are their foster-children to be brought up as an instrument of disruption of the national unity and subverting  Nation State Sovereignty for creating  a favourable  environment for external intervention and  regime change....

 

Al-Qaeda: The Other Jihadist State

Its future emirate, should it come to it, may be more firmly supported by the local population, and therefore even harder to extirpate, than the barbarous IS caliphate....

 

Tackle Alienation of Muslim Youth to Deal with Daesh
Michael Jansen

There is a large pool of alienated angry young Muslims eager to join the fight against the Christian West which has colonised them, dominated the governments in their home countries which have failed to provide productive lives for them and discriminated against them. The only way to deal with Daesh is to tackle the roots of the alienation of Muslim youth....

 

Wahhabi doctrine holds that preservation of cultural heritage, whether Islamic or non-Islamic, is a form of idol worship or polytheism prohibited in Islam. The Saudi kingdom now faces the need to choose between its continued patronage of the Wahhabi clerics and the danger they pose, inside the Saudi state and abroad, to Muslims, non-Muslims, and global culture, in the form of death and mutilation, cultural desolation....

 

Behind Boko Haram's Split: A Leader Too Radical for Islamic State
Yaroslav Trofimov

“Shekau’s approval of attacking Muslims indiscriminately led to a situation of significant loss of support within the Muslim community. The fact that he could kill Muslims praying in a mosque convinced the locals that he is not really fighting for Islam,”...

 

Organise events that galvanise youngsters from across different faiths and backgrounds. Encourage interfaith dialogue as the weapon of choice to counter the destructive narrative ISIS promotes for recruitment. Using social media, advertising and faith groups across the country can be a simple but very effective measure to help tie the noose around ISIS and its rabble-rousers who spout their rubbish....
