Radical Islamism and Jihad

"This mosque was a place where most of the Taliban members used to meet and discuss issues. The duties of the mosque were handed over to Ahmadullah by Haibatullah after he was appointed as the emir of the Taliban group [in 2016]."...

 

 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."...

Though it was the epicentre of all terrorist activities, Pakistan had long delayed the operation in North Waziristan, as the region also provided shelter to its own terrorist proxy, the Haqqani Network....

 

Any bad deal from the U.S. will not only be inglorious for Americans, but more importantly will put the infant democracy and fragile stability of Afghanistan in the great stake....

The Islamic State has largely taken over control of a huge camp in northeast Syria, and there’s no plan for what to do with the 70,000 people there (including more than 50,000 children). The United States and Europe must immediately address this urgent national security and humanitarian crisis, before a new caliphate is established while we watch....

 

The Khawarij aroused condemnation by mainstream scholars such as 14th-century Muslim Ismail ibn Kathir who wrote, “If they ever gained strength, they would surely corrupt the whole of the Earth, Iraq and Shaam (Syria) – they would not leave a baby...

Iranian Nobel Peace Prize winner and feminist, Shirin Ebadi, says in Iran, sexual abuse against women goes largely unreported and officially, it is unrecognised. The situation is similar in Malaysia. A majority of Muslim women who are are physically or sexually abused in marriages suffer in silence....

 

Yet, as the recent suicide attack at Dera Ismail Khan reveals, the TTP is not averse to deploying women as suicide bombers or fighters. Neither is it the first time that Pakistani woman militants have engaged in combat....

 

As a 14-year-old struggling to fit in at an American public high school, Khalid said he turned to the internet to make sense of what some saw as the negative connotation of his first name, “Mohammed.”

 He said he quickly became enthralled with the answers online extremists offered....

The Al-Qaeda ideologue Abu Qatada operated openly, just like Abdelhaleem does today. London policymakers mostly shrugged or ignored the hate preachers and their associates. But 9/11, and then the 7/7 bombings in London, changed the rules of the game....

Between the rhetoric of the IS and the claims of success by the security forces, lies a much larger area of understudied global jihadist mobilization in India....

 

This raises a profound question: how is it that a group that commanded such extraordinary, unprecedented attention across the world from 2001 to 2011 can disappear from public attention so completely?...

 

It is, in fact, an extremely worrying development because the new batch of militants not only reject the Indian state but Pakistan too — indeed, the very concept of the nation state....

The international community fought to defeat the Islamic State — but the job is not done. Abandoning the Yazidis to a war-torn land and uncertain future allows the seeds of further violence to take root....

"They used to be against girls’ education during their regime and they are still killing or punishing girls in areas under their control for attending schools," which under their beliefs is "anti-Islamic.”…


 

At their office in Aurangabad, the ATS officers pushed a sheaf of papers towards him. It was a list of 240 questions but not about him and IS. They were questions no one had ever asked him....

More worryingly, total fatalities in first six months and 28 days of 2019 have already crossed the total number of terrorism-related fatalities recorded each year, since 2016....

 

These women were not only from Muslim countries but from westernized world and even non-Muslims also. It is estimated that more than 80 women have travelled to IS-controlled territory from the Netherlands since 2012. From the United Kingdom and France, these numbers are even higher, respectively around 1452 and 2003 women and teen-aged girls....

Salafi Jihadism has become a serious problem in Central Asia that encompasses five former Soviet republics – Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan – collectively known as the “Five Stans”, as well as Afghanistan and western China....

 

The country's first recorded case of a suicide attack by a female Fidayeen was reported on December 25, 2010, when a female suicide bomber blew herself up at a distribution centre of the World Food Programme (WFP) at Khar town in the Bajaur Agency...

 

About 1,000 fighters have crossed into Iraq over the past eight months, most of them in the aftermath of the caliphate’s collapse in March, said Hisham al-Hashimi, a security analyst who advises Iraq’s government and foreign aid agencies….

 

In his typically outlandish style, President Rodrigo Duterte vowed to crack down, ordering the military to “wipe Abu Sayyaf out from the face of the earth.” Such rhetoric is common from Duterte, but it has rarely made much difference on the battlefield against extremist groups....

 

The Taliban simply don’t want modern education and prefer the madrasa that they see as the future inspiration of Afghanistan. They destroy schools wherever they see them: The number of attacks on schools tripled, according to UNICEF, rising from 68 in 2017 to 192 in 2018....

 

Mr. President,

The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

Mr. President,

Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

 In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

Mr. President,

The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....

 The vast majority of Muslims are horrified by the barbaric regression that the Islamic State (ISIS) represents, as well as by its claim to speak in the name of Islam – an Islam most Muslims do not identify with. But while condemning ISIS on both a moral and human level, they have difficulty confronting it on a theological level....
