Surprisingly, however, the Supreme Court’s Shayara Bano judgment (2017) does not talk of gender justice. The court set triple Talaq aside because the majority in the five-judge bench found the practice to be un-Islamic — that is, against the faith....


Similar Fatwas given to kill the other mujahedeen groups were also given today in other countries to kill the rest of the Muslims. They all abused Islam, distorted its messages and used it for their own interests....


When we speak of human values and good manners in Islam, we simply mean following the guidance of God the Most High. Doing things that are pleasing to Him is useful for us as this leads to salvation and great bounty….

Our ulema do not come out against these extremist organizations and even covertly support them by giving lame excuses. In 2014, they had even got justification in their actions in the event of 69 nurses from Kerala being released by the ISIS who had been kept hostage for 23 days....

مذہبی ایمان کا مفروضہ انسان کا وجودی لحاظ سے لاچار اور محتاج ہونا، جب کہ جدید تصور انسان کا وجودی مفروضہ انسان کا خود مختار اور ہر لحاظ سے خود کفیل ہونا ہے۔ جدید انسان کو انسانی معاملات میں دخل نہ دینے والے خدا سے کوئی مسئلہ نہیں، لیکن فعال و مرید اور مطالبات رکھنے والا خدا اسے قبول نہیں ۔


In a world of inequality of wealth, brawling people and nations with no solutions in sight. Mishra describes Islamist Pakistan and Hindu India as neighbours “driven by the narcissism of small differences”....

There are “valid concerns” about the power held by religious institutions, she said. But, refusing to work with Muslim feminists ironically leaves “wide open the most conservative within the Muslim community to define what Islam is…


While legal action is important, I firmly believe that education and awareness about the horrors of FGM is what works in the long term.  The first - and possibly most significant - of these misconceptions is that FGM makes a girl ‘pure’ and, thus, is encouraged by Islam and other religions.....


Its growth rate last year (7.8 per cent) put it at par with India (8.0pc) and well above Pakistan (5.8pc). The debt per capita for Bangladesh ($434) is less than half that for Pakistan ($974) and its foreign exchange reserves ($32 billion) are four times Pakistan’s ($8bn)....


പെട്രോഡോളർ ഇസ്ലാം,അവരുടെ ഇസ്ലാമിക മേധാവിത്വ വിഷത്തെ ലോകവ്യാപകമായി മുസ്‌ലിംകളിൽ കൊത്തിവെച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട്.ഇന്തോനേഷ്യയും മലേഷ്യയും പോലോത്ത അനുകരണീയമായ രാഷ്ട്രങ്ങൾക്ക് പോലും ഇപ്പോൾ ഇതിൻറെ വൈറസ് ബാധിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട്.....


The rigidity with which we structure our filters is a problem, leaving us vulnerable to developing our own fundamentalist views camouflaged under buzz words like “freedom” and “equality.”...

Muftis (fatwa issuing mullahs) are not answerable to anybody, nor can their Fatwas be challenged at any forum. There is no check and balance on Fatwas or muftis and they can play havoc with anybody’s life...


Hell is obviously a bad place or state to find oneself in. But the story doesn’t end here.  There arise many questions regarding it, that cry for answers. One such important question is about God’s mercy if so many people end up in hell...

Transition to local languages has not been easy for other religions too. A certain holiness does attach itself to some languages. Vedic Sanskrit, for instance, is sacred for Hindus, Hebrew for Jews. Christianity’s struggle to retain the Bible in Latin and Greek was intense and bloody, with a powerful Church putting up a stiff resistance. Eventually, the Bible did speak to the people in their language. The Ulema in India refuse to accept as Quran an Urdu or English translation of the holy book....

The ritual led by Pope Francis at a stadium in Abu Dhabi, his meetings with officials, primarily those with the UAE’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed and Al-Azhar’s Sheikh Yousef El-Tayeb, is the milestone of a century-old strategy that will turn upside down the theopolitical and geopolitical maps specifically of the Arab world, and in general that of the Islamic world.....


Pakistan’s civil society must not be tricked by the way an otherwise excellent decision is presented to it; it should also not desist from using the verdict to its advantage. The verdict indeed gives it a foot in the door to contest for greater rights.....


تاریخ کا مطالعہ مفکرین اور دانشوروں کی نگاہ میں ہمیشہ کافی اہمیت کا حامل رہاہے ۔ تاریخ کو نسل انسانی کا حافظہ کہاگیاہے ۔ نوع انسانی تاریخ سے عبرت و دانش حاصل کرتاہے اور اس کی روشنی میں مستقبل کے لئے لائحہ ء عمل مرتب کرتاہے ۔


There are many similarities between the lives of Aasia Bibi and Dr. Abdus Salam. But the common threads bring no joy or strength. Each adds to the agony of the other. The flight of persecuted Pakistanis from their homeland may do no harm to its already inflated population. But it sure does narrow the slim white of Pakistan’s flag....


The first goal of these channels is to drive a wedge between Muslims and non-Muslims and create a narrow, sectarian binding identity for Muslims, brainwashing them towards a Saudi version of Islam;...
