Take the example of Brigadier Ijaz Shah, formerly of the ISI, who served as Musharraf’s hatchet man and was even named by Benazir Bhutto as one of the persons trying to have her killed. Shah was most likely the covert handler of Jaish-e-Muhammad’s Masood Azhar and Omar Saeed Sheikh when they were arrested in India as terrorists. Sheikh, lest you forget, is currently in prison after being convicted of murdering Wall Street Journal reporter, Daniel Pearl....

 

Barzakh is a Qur’anic term that designates the metaphysical space between life and the hereafter that contains both even as both are absent. Similarly, suspension, meeting and separation between tribal and modern characterize Arab Gulf culture today. Retaining independence and specificities, each shapes the other in a dynamic, cultural-political field that allows neither compromise nor erasure....

 

He wrote, “O Sister, You have touched a very sore point of my being. Prudes, hypocrites and idiots may deny the existence of brothels in any sizable town in Pakistan. This flesh industry cannot run for a single day without the knowledge and protection of the local police who get rewarded handsomely both in cash as well as in kind. I had a long and painful experience of this flesh trade after my nine-year-old niece was kidnapped in the 1980s. She was sold through a chain of agents to a pimp who operated brothels in Sukkur, Rawalpindi and Dubai. The kidnappers, the intermediaries, the pimps and the cops were, incidentally, all honourable men.”...

 

The notorious “sex education” and “family welfare education” schemes are just one example of this effort. The NGO’s (Which are in fact FGO’s or Foreign Government Organisations), the international “aid agencies”, and the UN have been working feverishly to introduce all the wrongs in the name of “rights”. Together they act as one big Commission for the Elimination of All Forms of Haya and Morality from the World....

 

Likewise, many theologians are now aware that they cannot pursue their theological commitments and formulate their religious beliefs without taking into account the findings of contemporary science. In other words, today many people realise that science and religion are complementary to each other, a far cry from the earlier model that posited them as being in conflict....

 

Conversely, the multitude of mullahs, imams and Qazis, constituting a self-anointed club of Islamic scholars representing different schools of Islamic jurisprudence, dish out their own concoctions of Islamic justice. Now there is no going back to personal law courts, Darul Qazas, or the age of ignorance. The most fundamental pillar of our democracy, the Indian judiciary, will uphold justice to the last woman standing...

Darul Qazas or Sharia Courts: Why both must be Opposed?

The association with terrorism represents a distortion of the true Quranic meaning of the term. According to an oft-repeated Hadith (sayings of the prophet Muhammad), jihad is supposed to encompass both a struggle against one’s sinful proclivities, known also as “greater jihad,” and a struggle against injustice, known also as “smaller jihad.” But over time, both Shi’a and Sunni Islam have developed distinct distortions of jihad, both of which contribute to the current association we have between jihad and terrorist acts. This tie, however, advances a twisted concept with little to do with the mainstream teaching of Islam.....

Of Salafis, Deobandis and Barelwis in Kashmir
Mushtaq Ul Haq Ahmad Sikander, New Age Islam

All these discourses of Salafis, Deobandis and Barelwis are quite alien to Kashmir. All these schools of thought are extremist in their outlook and rabidly sectarian and if provided with hospitable environs violent too. These groups have carried out violent acts against each other and different other sects in the recent past. Earlier they engaged with each other through writing diatribes, pamphlets and books denouncing each other and describing them as deviated and charging them with heresy. The sectarian mosques were used to hold debates against each other. Also the co-option and annexation of shrines by Barelwis who wrongly masquerade as Sufis has done a severe damage to the syncretic and plural message of Kashmiri Rishis....

Kashmir Is Too Diverse, Too Multicultural A Land To Turn Into A Radical Islamist State


تاریخ اس حقیقت کی شاہد ہے کہ پیغمبراسلام صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کی ڈی لنکنگ (delinking) پالیسی اصولی اور عملی دونوں طور پر زبردست کامیاب ثابت ہوئی۔ اس کا سب سے بڑا فائدہ یہ ہے کے اس میں از سر نو منصوبہ بندی کرنے اور قوم کی تعمیر پر توجہ مرکوز کرنے کے مواقع ‏ موجود ہیں۔ دوسری جنگ عظیم کے بعد بہت سارے ملکوں نے اس پالیسی کو اپنایا جس کی بنیاد پر انہیں بڑی کامیابیاں ملیں۔ جرمنی اور جاپان نے تعلیم اور سائنسی ترقی کے شعبے میں زبردست کامیابی حاصل کی۔

 

बेशक भारत जैसे एक बहु सांस्कृतिक और बहु धार्मिक देश में सेकुलरिज्म एक आवश्यक भाग बन चुका हैl सेकुलरिज्म भारत की विशेषता बन चुकी है, और इसकी बुनियादी वजह यह है कि यह सभी धर्मों को बराबर सम्मान प्रदान करता है और इसके संविधान में सभी देशवासियों को अपने अपने धर्मों के अनुसार गुज़र बसर करने की अनुमति हैl इसलिए सभी धर्मों के अनुयायियों के लिए आवश्यक है कि वह भारतीय सेकुलरिज्म के इस बुनियादी कल्पना को दिमाग में रखें और देश में अमन व शांति कायम रखें, इसके लिए उन्हें सामूहिक रूप में शांतिपूर्ण सह अस्तित्व के प्वाइंट को मजबूत करना होगाl

 

He is obviously going along with popular sentiment in Pakistan, where anti-American feelings run high, but these will place him at odds with the first major issue that will confront him: the economy. Any bailout is likely to be contingent upon Western satisfaction about the measures undertaken against the extremist groups. Given this situation, Imran Khan will hardly be able to bowl at full pace; he may have to settle for a medium swing to test the waters, which are indeed going to be turbulent....

 

Pakistanis drained after the drama of electoral vigils, delayed results, and allegations of rigging and meddling, will likely cleave to the promise of Faiz’s poetry. They console themselves by believing that they’ll one day “see that day that has been promised” them. That they do not have a united vision for this future day seems not to be of Imran Khan’s—or anyone’s—concern....

 

But if Khan is a genuinely popular leader who has surged into office because of a truly national following built on his cricket celebrity and appeal as an anti-corruption crusader, we can expect that he might want to be his own man and possibly stand up to the military. But even then, he must be very afraid to go the way of many former prime ministers before him: removed in a coup or marginalized using a combination of media and courtroom trials over corruption and sundry charges. In both scenarios, Pakistani democracy and Khan seem to be in imminent jeopardy....

 

Here what becomes evident is that Dr Maroof is either misinformed about the subject or has not seen the complete syllabus of Islamic Studies, taught at various Colleges and Universities, globally. His claim that “Islamic Studies as a discipline and Islam as a Tradition” which includes “proper engagement with the whole legacy of Islam” is “absent in much of the Muslim world and its institutions” is not genuine....

Alarmed, the Congress distanced itself from Tharoor. But similarities on the surface can’t be ignored. Pakistan’s major living poet, Fahmida Riaz fled General Zia-ul Haq’s religious tyranny and sought refuge in India. If she thought she had walked into a secular paradise, she was mistaken and wrote a poem, “Tum Toh Hum Jaise Hi Niklay” (you turned out to be just like us) to express her disenchantment....

Chroniclers record the existence of a synod in a diocese called Beit Qatraye, near Jubail, in 676AD, more than 40 years after the Prophet’s death. Moreover, the peninsula’s six other countries all have churches. Qatar, which follows the same Wahhabi school of Islam as Saudi Arabia, let one be built a decade ago. Bahrain did so in 1906. This year it broke ground on Our Lady of Arabia, a new cathedral....

On the Meaning of Khatm e Nabuwwat
Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

I consider it unfortunate that the Ahmediya’s call their imam a prophet, but then I equally consider every belief different from my beliefs as unfortunate. Beyond the problem with nomenclature, there is little that you can find fault with in their beliefs. If they had called their leader Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian an Imam rather than Nabi, there would have been no problem at all. In my opinion, the Ahmediya websites provide the best Tafseer on the Quran, and the Ahmediya are good Muslims, who honour the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Allah. Their beliefs do not dishonour Islam, and they are a people we can be proud of and be friends with....

इतिहास इस वास्तविकता का गवाह है कि इस्लाम के पैगम्बर सल्लल्लाहु अलैहि वसल्लम की डिलिंकिंग (delinking) नीति सैद्धांतिक और व्यावहारिक दोनों तौर पर जबर्दस्त साबित हुईl इसका सबसे बड़ा लाभ यह है कि इसमें नए सिरे से योजना बनाने और कौम के निर्माण पर ध्यान केन्द्रित करने का मौक़ा मौजूद हैl दुसरे विश्व युद्ध के बाद बहुत सारे देशों ने इस नीति को अपनाया जिसके आधार पर उन्हें बड़ी सफलताएं मिलींl जर्मनी और जापान ने शिक्षा और वैज्ञानिक विकास के क्षेत्र में जबरदस्त सफलता प्राप्त कीl

 

قبل از اسلام کا وہ دور جیسا کہ اسے ایام جاہلیت کہا جاتا ہے ویسا ہی ہے جیسا دنیا کے دیگر خطوں میں تاریکی کا ایک دور رہ چکا ہے۔ اور جس طرح روشن خیالی نے یوروپ کو تاریک دور سے نکال کر جدیدیت کی دہلیز پر لاکر کھڑا کر دیا اسی طرح اسلام نے بھی اس خطہ عرب اور اس کے باشندوں کو ظلم، جہالت ، بربریت اور وحشت کی تاریکی سے نکال کر انسانیت، علم و فکر، تہذیب و تمدن، اور روشن خیالی کی ایک نئی صبح سے آشنا کیا۔ اسلام کی جدید تاریخ میں سید قطب اور مودودی کے مطابق اب بھی اس دنیا کے بیشتر حصے جاہلیت کی تاریکی میں ڈوبے ہوئے ہیں اور اپنی اس خودساختہ جاہلیت کی تاریکی سے آزاد ہونے کے لئے اب بھی اسلام کا منھ تک رہے ہیں۔
