Radical Islamism and Jihad

The Islamic State does not hide that it has international support and a network of allegiances that tie lesser terrorist groups to it. This calls for a broader strategy on the emerging threat of the ISIS network…..

 

Musa is dead, with little success achieved by him or his cadres militarily on ground but the idea of Ghazwatul Hind and Jihad that he propagated will continue to attract numerous youth for some time to come....

Mosques in the predominantly Muslim town rejected him outright. Their members even complained to authorities, before he went absconding in 2017 after a clash with a fellow priest who challenged his interpretation of Islam....

The scale and intensity of the act was earth shattering because even in the heyday of the civil war, this level of coordinated and simultaneous attacks at so many places was unprecedented....

 

In a short space of time, we have witnessed a shift from an ecosystem that orbited around the leadership of a strong organisation capable of shouldering the initiative and most of the work needed to ensure the visibility of the jihadist message on Internet...

 

However, within the highly heterogeneous spectrum of Salafi orientations, beliefs, and religious practices, interpretations of al-Wala’ and al-Bara’ differ as well as its actual relevance and its implications for concrete life situations...

The TNTJ is a non-political Islamic organisation based in Tamil Nadu, which has some presence in countries such as Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and others. It aims to preach “true” Islam to Muslims and non-Muslims. The group has captured headlines for organising protests against load shedding and asking for the closure of liquor shops....

From Afghanistan through Pakistan to the Maldives to Bangladesh, radical Islamist extremism is an ever present reality. Both India and Sri Lanka, however, prefer to believe that they are shielded from such tendencies, but this needs a relook...

 

The fear of reprisals combined with growing Islamophobia compels Muslims to insist that these acts have nothing to do with their faith. This urge to separate religion from the violence committed in its name is well intentioned and understandable, yet counterproductive....

 

One of the most welcome reports emanating from Indian religious scholars in the wake of Easter Sunday attack in Sri Lanka is the note of condemnation from Grand Mufti and newly appointed Chief Qazi of India Muhammad Asjad Raza Khan ‘Barelvi.’ He has called for ideological battle against terrorists’ ideological narratives....

Another factor behind Indonesia’s tremendous progress is the Pancasila ideology, which stipulates that there is no state religion. All citizens are allowed to practice their own religion and all religions are respected by the state....

 

The choice of ISIS of Kashmir as its "Wilayat" is very plausible… The ISIS jihadists have long been looking for a new area to reorganize their groups after they have suffered in Iraq and Syria. But this could not be possible without the required ideological and logistical support. … It has announced the establishment of its province in India (Wilayat al-Hind) only after consolidating its linkages with its loyalists in the subcontinent. …

As for Islamic scholars, they should rethink Islam in the present-situation in addition to taking into account the objectives of Islam which are being violated by the radical ‘Islamist’ groups. They should indeed work to rescue Islam from the clutches of terrorists. In this connection, they should make all possible efforts to teach the common and naïve Muslims the true message of Islam which is fully in agreement with development of a peaceful and cooperative environment…..

The puzzle unravels, however, considering the attack from a global perspective: There were ideological as well as practical reasons for targeting Sri Lankan Christians. From the ideological perspective, Christians are the Muslims’ iconic enemy and the depiction of contemporary Christians...

 

“The world was unaware that a whole generation of Bangladeshis had grown up with no love for Pakistan or the Islamic movement prior to the formation of Pakistan in 1947. These were young students and professionals born after 1971….

 
Intolerance and Radicalism in Indonesia
Jakarta Globe and Suara Pembaruan

The government had disbanded hardline Islamic group Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia in 2017 for "threatening national unity and the state ideology Pancasila." But though the organization does not officially exist....

 

We can tackle racism and discrimination, which we must. We can review our security and intelligence settings, and we are. But we can’t fix the proliferation of violent content online by ourselves. We need to ensure that an attack like this never happens again in our country or anywhere else….

Under Imran Khan, Pakistan has developed a consensus — not without input from China — of getting rid of the “terrorists” trained and sheltered by it. Without this consensus, Khan wouldn’t have “made a clean breast” of it like that in Tehran....

 

Since the collapse of the “caliphate” in Syria and Iraq, Islamic State (is) has been looking for other places to raise its black flag. Africa, and especially the Sahel, is vulnerable. Governments are weak, unpopular and often have only a tenuous grip over remote parts of their territory....

 

But when it comes to the Islamic State terror group, numbers have always been a challenge for the United States and its partners, starting with their first efforts to measure the terror group’s appeal to would-be jihadists from across the globe….

 

The key reason behind China’s long-standing romance with Azhar and other AF-Pak terrorists is safeguarding its economic interests. Masood Azhar has been China’s go-to guy to ensure security of its geostrategic investments under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the top Chinese project under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in the Af-Pak region, one of the world’s most crowded terrorist landscapes....

Baghdadi’s reference to the terror bombings in Sri Lanka was important. The video was an opportunity to take credit for the bombings as well as a reminder that IS remains the dominant global jihadist terror group. His video likely sought to inspire those in Iraq and Syria who believed in IS’s purpose to have faith that the physical caliphate will be re-established later....

 

Al-Qaradawi, one of the most influential Sunni preachers in the world, has disseminated extremist ideas for many decades that form key parts of the ideological foundations for Salafi-Jihadism, the proper name for the doctrine of violent Islamist militancy practiced by ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and similar groups....

The bombings were planned by members of one of the wealthiest families in the island. Foreign-educated scions of this politically influential family were among those who volunteered to blow themselves up in the suicide mission....

This was not only one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in South Asia’s recent history, comparable to the Mumbai siege and atrocities in Peshawar and Baluchistan over the past few years. It was one of the deadliest recent attacks globally. According to some members of the Sri Lankan government, this attack was carried out in response to the far-right terror attack in Christchurch....
