Had your Lord pleased, all the people on earth would have believed in Him, without exception. So will you compel people to become believers? (10:99) […]and had God so willed, He would have made you all a single community, but He did not so will, in order that He might try you by what He has given you (5:48)The Quran, as is readily evident from this discussion, reflects a universal notion of religious tolerance. If this is not reflected in Muslims’ behaviour, the fault lies with Muslims themselves, and not with the Quran....

Trump’s Farewell to Charms
S. Mubashir Noor, New Age Islam

Liberal internationalism is dead. Or at the very least on death row awaiting execution should US President Donald Trump push forward with his campaign promises. Why? Simply put, his declared priorities as president are at complete odds with the fundamental feature undergirding the post-1945 world order sired and steered by the US. Once the continents emerged from the ashes of World War II, Washington as the only standing superpower promised a benevolent model of international relations that shunned the petty realpolitik of old Europe and its exploitative colonialism. Positive social virtues like human rights and self-government would thenceforth illuminate the twentieth century.….

توہین رسالت کے قوانین اب بھی پاکستانی قانون کی کتابوں میں موجود ہیں۔ پنجاب کے لبرل گورنر سلمان تاثیر کو محض اس لیے موت کے گھاٹ اتار دیا گیاکہ اس نے ایک ایسی عیسائی خاتون کے لیے ہمدردی کا مظاہرہ کیا جسے غلط طریقے سے توہین رسالت کا ملزم بنایا گیا تھااور اس نے توہین رسالت کے قانون کی منسوخی کا مطالبہ کیا تھا۔ اس قانون کی بنیاد پرجبراً مذہبی اقلیتوں پر توہین رسالت کا الزام عائد کیا جا سکتا ہے اور اس الزام کو بنیاد بنا کر مشتعل عوام یا عدلیہ انہیں موت کے گھاٹ اتار سکتی ہے۔اور اس کے لیے کسی ثبوت کی بھی کوئی ضرورت نہیں ہے اس لیے کہ یہ مبینہ طور پر الزام لگانے والے کو دوبارہ توہین رسالت پر آمادہ کرنے کے مترادف ہو گا۔ اسی طرح اقلیتی ہندو، عیسائی، شیعہ اور احمدیوں پر مختلف قوانین کی بنیاد پرحملوں کا سلسلہ اب بھی جاری ہے۔ پاکستانی قوانین میں اپنی شناخت مسلمان بتانے پر احمدیوں پر پابندی ہے۔

 

Ownership by the US and its allies of eastern Syria in the post-Islamic State period is the best way to prevent the possibility of the realization of Iran's aims, while presenting Russia with a fait accompli. The indications are that the US administration is thinking in these terms. If so, Iranian victory emerging from the ruins of Syria and Iraq can be prevented. The post-Islamic State landscape in Iraq and Syria is emerging. The contest for primacy within it is set to begin.....

 

Meanwhile intense Muslim unhappiness over the ruling was articulated by the Islamic Human Rights Commission, a London-based lobby group, where a spokeswoman said: “This gives legal cover to what is essentially an ongoing hate campaign to make Muslims second-class citizens in Europe....

 

Iyad Ag Ghaly, the long-time leader of Ansar Dine, heads the new joint venture. Ghaly, a Malian Tuareg jihadist, explained why the merger was necessary in a video that is more than seven minutes long. And he emphasized that his group is part of al Qaeda’s international network. “On this blessed occasion, we renew our pledge of allegiance [bayat] to our honourable emirs and sheikhs: Abu Musab Abdel Wadoud, our beloved and wise sheikh Ayman al Zawahiri and…the emir of the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan Mullah Haibatullah, may Allah protect them and support them,” ....

 

Under Zia’s era, the establishment took it upon itself to “Islamise” state institutions and introduced a series of “regulative” and “puritanical” legal measures including restricting women to the “Char-Diwari” (four walls) of their homes and controlling women’s sexuality through introduction of Zina and Hudood Laws....

 

Henna is a symbol of innocence and sacrifice in Turkey and the region. Turkish bridal showers often include the bride getting a henna design on her palm. Young conscripts also get henna on their hands just before they are sent off to serve their country, as a symbol of dedication. For the people of Anatolia, henna symbolizes new beginnings, excitement and sacrifice for an important cause. It is an ancient tradition that has been cherished by Jews, Arabs, Alevis, Kurds and Turks — it is an image that unites and transcends politics….

 

To conclude, marriage is a sacred institution, a life-long commitment between two individuals; not an anti-dote to rape and illicit sex, let alone a reward for rapist men. Bangladesh needs the rule of law against rape, abduction, and sexual harassment of women, not child marriage – which is a regression therapy, not an efficacious cure....

They also use the injustice being done to some Muslims and use it to plant the seeds of extremism, which stays for a long time and eventually becomes a local culture. If you can imagine this, you can understand how extremism spreads and how terrorism emerged. You will also realize that fighting extremism is more important than fighting terrorism....

It was a surprise of surprises to me. Holi in Pakistan! Was I dreaming? I pinched myself. No, I wasn't dreaming. Nonetheless, I went to the department on the day of Holi. It was a colourful spectacle to behold. There were colours everywhere. Students and professors were playing Holi. The moment I entered the department, all greeted me with Holi Mubarak ho in chorus. It was really unexpected. Dr Abbas told me that Punjab University had been celebrating Holi right from its inception in 1882 and the tradition was never broken even during and after partition....

Islam also forbids armed groups and non-state entities to declare Jihad. According to Islam it can only be declared by a legitimately chosen leader of the state. Similarly rebellion against the state or taking up of arms against it is not permitted by Islam. These Islamic injunctions and teachings must be relied upon to develop a counter narrative against the ideology preached by the terrorists and proponents of religious extremism. That job can best be done by the religious scholars through the pulpit and the mosque.....

 

Such are even the ‘Believers’ in the creed laa ilaa haa illaa Allaah- There is no earthly gods, that is, monarchs, kings, Khalifahs, Imams, Muftis, custodians of holy places, or graven images but only the Supreme Being, the Creator of universe as the father-figure. To Him mankind is but one nation… one large family; but alas of their own freewill they differed and divided themselves into tribal communities to fight wars across the borders and regions.....

اس امر سے اکثر لوگ واقف ہیں کہ ایسے مدارس کی ایک بہت بڑی تعداد ہے جو کسی بھی مدرسہ بورڈ سے منسلک نہ ہونے کی وجہ سے مکمل طور پر غیر منظم اور غیر منضبط ہیں۔ اور اس طرح کے ارباب مدارس اپنے اختیارات کا اکثر ان معنوں میں غلط استعمال کرتے ہیں کہ وہ نصابِ تعلیم اور نظامِ تعلیم کے معاملے میں مدارس بورڈ کے دائرہ کار سے باہر ہیں۔ زیادہ تر ان مدارس میں کہ جنہیں آزاد مدارس کہا جاتا ہے، بنیادی طور پر دینیات کی تعلیم دی جاتی ہےجو بنیادی طور پر صدیوں پرانی کتابوں کا ایک مجموعہ ہے۔ یہاں تک کہ ان مذہبی مضامین میں بھی ان مباحث کو کوئی جگہ نہیں دی جاتی ہے جن کا تعلق روزمرہ کےمسائل سے ہے۔ اور اس قسم کے نظامِ تعلیم کا مقصد مضامین کے مقتضیات اور اس کی نزاکتوں پر غور و فکر کئے بغیر انہیں صرف زبانی طور پر رٹ کر یاد کر لینا ہے۔

 

हलाला भारतीय मुसलमानों के अंदर सबसे अश्लील सामाजिक कर्म है जिसे उलेमा के सभी वर्गों का समर्थन प्राप्त है। अगर तीन तलाक की प्रक्रिया समाप्त कर दिया जाए या एक ही बार में दी जाने वाली तीन तलाक को एक ही कुरआनी तलाक माना जाए तो यह सामाजिक मामूल खुद बखुद खतम हो जाएगा। जैसा कि मोरक्को, कुवैत, यमन, अफगानिस्तान, लीबिया, कुवैत, कतर, बहरीन, संयुक्त अरब अमीरात, सऊदी अरब, पाकिस्तान, बांग्लादेश, मिस्र, सीरिया, जॉर्डन, इराक, सूडान सहित 22 मुस्लिम देशों में इस पर अमल किया जाता है ।

Worse is that Israelis, angry that they had to give up on their dream of a “Greater Israel” that encompasses most of the Middle East including Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, voted overwhelmingly to elect hard-line extremists to reject peace and pursue a tough military policy against Palestinian civilians. What is amazing to me is that Israel has been rejecting peace openly and without shame for the past 20 years and no one in the Arab world has done anything about it....

 

The Akhlaq incident, the Muzaffarnagar riots, the incidents around tanning, has undermined Muslim confidence. Alienation, fear and silence are the result. It is this that the BJP needs to address — something that Atal Bihari Vajpayee was able to address and some believe that the Babri-tainted Rajnath Singh could address. Is the BJP of Modi and Shah even keen to recognise the issue of genuine inclusion, let alone address it?....

 

It seems that the admiration is mutual. As Trump and Prince Salman sat for a photo op after lunch, Trump smiled, pointed to the Saudi delegation, and said, “They are nice people.” No, Mr. Trump, they aren’t. They behead people for peaceful dissent at home. They export the extreme Wahhabist ideology that fuels terrorist groups. And they are committing war crimes in Yemen. ...

The beggar and I are both dependent on one Sustainer. We both supplicate, consciously or unconsciously, to the Most Generous and are looked after by Him. What I give to the needy is not from me but from Him, for none of what I posses is mine, and I, too, am equally in need of my Guardian’s blessings. These verses resonate with me, but I struggle to understand why….

 

Coalition forces fear Isis will revert to Al-Qaeda's strategy of guerrilla or "asymmetric" warfare, including bomb attacks. Clever for the fact that attacks can occur anywhere at any time. "Islamic State is a global insurgency. It may well be they will never be as powerful or enjoy the presence they currently have, but it will be a very long time before this group is completely irrelevant."....
