... Now Islam is a religion being practiced only by some Indian Mullahs, so it would seem. This even amounts to declaring Shias as well as Sunni Wahhabi sects like Ahl-e-Hadith apostate because they consider triple talaq in one session as equal to only one reversible talaq.

Even stranger is the fact that AIMPLB consists of Ulema from Shia, Ahl-e-Hadith and other Salafi-Wahhabi sects as well.  Why are they not protesting at being virtually called apostate groups which have “re-written Quran and forced Muslims to commit sin, altering the very essence of the religion of Islam” by a group of which they are members?

The most astounding fact in the AIMPLB affidavit is the justification it seeks for instant triple talaq from the Holy Quran. This has never been done before. Everyone knows there is no justification for instant triple talaq in the holy Quran. All protagonists of the triple talaq in one sitting have so far only quoted Ahadith (so-called sayings of the Prophet, many of them clearly weak and inauthentic, collected hundreds of years after the demise of the Prophet) and juristic rulings of companions of the prophet, or later jurists and theologians.....

Ayodhya Dispute अयोध्या विवाद
Syed Mansoor Agha, Tr.New Age Islam

इस विश्वास को परवान चढ़ाने की राजनीतिक प्रक्रिया स्वतंत्रता के तुरंत बाद ही उस समय शुरू हो गयी थी जब 22 और 23 दिसंबर 1948 की रात में चबूतरे से उठाकर मूर्तियां मस्जिद की मेहराब में रख दी गईं और 6 दिसंबर 1992 को उस समय चरम पर पहुंची जब आडवाणी जी, अशोक सिंघल और दुसरे संघी नेताओं की पुकार पर लाखों कानून विरोधी अयोध्या में इकट्ठे हुए और उन नेताओं की मौजूदगी में एक प्राचीन आराधनालय को ध्वस्त कर दिया गया और फिर सरकार की निगरानी में उसके मलबे पर अस्थायी ही सही, मंदिर बना दिया गया। इस दौरान किस किस का क्या रोल रहा? यह बताने की जरूरत नहीं। जब मूर्तियां रखी गईं तब भी कांग्रेस की सरकार थी। जब ताला खुला तब भी जब शीलान्यास हुआ तब और जब मस्जिद गिराई गई तब भी सरकार कांग्रेस की ही थी।


اس الیکشن میں آپ نے دیکھا ہوگا کہ صرف مایاوتی نے بار بار مسلمانوں کا نام لیا۔ اور اٹھانوے (98) افراد کو اپنی پارٹی کا کنڈیڈیٹ بنا دیا، یہی چیز ان کے گلے کی ہڈی بھی بن گئی ۔ وہ کہتی رہیں کہ مسلمان اور بی ایس پی کے جو حمایتی طبقات ہیں مل کر حکومت بنالیں گے لیکن اس کا الٹا ہی اثر ہوا۔ اس کے علاوہ کسی پارٹی نے مسلمانوں کا نام تک لیناپسند نہیں کیا۔ پورے الیکشن میں اکھلیش او رراہل نے کہیں یہ نہیں کہا کہ مسلمانوں کا یہ مسئلہ ہے اسے حل ہونا چاہیے ۔ اس کی وجہ یہی ہے کہ وہ سوچتے ہیں کہ ایسا کرنے سے اکثریت کے ووٹ سے محروم ہوجائیں گے ۔ ان کے مسائل کا ذکر کریں گے تو لوگ سمجھیں گے کہ ہم ان کے حامی ہیں ۔ آپ کے حق میں کوئی کلمۂ خیر بھی کہتا ہے تو لوگ سمجھتے ہیں کہ وہ مسلمانوں کا حامی ہے۔

These two organizations, with their massive influence among Muslims in Indonesia, have been responsible in developing the more tolerant and moderate version of Islam in the country, and in the past have been counted on to fight against the rise of radical Islam. And now Widodo is turning to them once again. Has the President done enough to stop the creeping Islamism in Indonesia? Time will tell.....

How Germany used Islam during World War I
TL Andrews and Agathe Osinski

The plan, a convenient corollary of the German-Ottoman alliance, was formally launched by Turkish Sultan Mehmed V shortly after the start of the war. From a mosque in Constantinople, the Sultan declared Britain, France and Russia the enemies of Islam, calling upon the Muslim subjects of those countries and their colonies to resist their oppressors. According to the fatwa that was subsequently issued, any Muslim that engaged in war against the Ottomans would have to pay the highest penalty.....


I have always wondered if Islamophobes like Robert Spencer, who the Southern Poverty Law Center has identified as a hate group leader, have ever stepped foot into a mosque or carried out actual field research in the Muslim communities they bash on a regular basis. Spencer operates in his own comfortable safe space, behind his computer screens and cameras. Islamophobes like him, who remain in their safe spaces, do not constructively engage with Islam through reasoned argument with Muslims or their allies....


Both terrorism and jihad have existed for many years, and forms of “globalised” terror – in which highly symbolic locations or innocent civilians are targeted, with no regard for national borders – go back at least as far as the anarchist movement of the late 19th century. What is unprecedented is the way that terrorists now deliberately pursue their own deaths.....


But when it comes to murders, both the target killings and vigilante actions are commonly attributed to the more militant organisations like Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, named after Haq Nawaz Jhangvi, a notorious anti-Shia cleric. It seems to be the main group responsible for Ahmadi and Shia killings across Pakistan. There is a whole spectrum of Deobandi groups, ranging from hard-line Taliban to the Punjab based Ahle-Sunnat-wal-Jamaat (ASWJ) which are known to have instigated or perpetrated violence against Ahmadis on a regular basis....


This study is an attempt at understanding the phrase The Right Religion [الدِّينُالْقَيِّمُ] in its usage across the Quran, in the context of the Creator God’s absolute right to decree and command; and through His guidance, understand the reason why there should be no change in Allah’s creation, especially in human nature....

Justice: The Epitome of Islam
Moin Qazi, New Age Islam

Justice is one word that captures the essence of all Islamic laws and all Islamic teachings;   that describes the overriding value that permeates all Islamic values. The Quran says: “We sent aforetime our messengers with clear Signs and sent down with them the Book and the Balance that men may stand forth in Justice.” [Q 57:25] The primary purpose of sending the prophets was to establish Justice in the world and end injustice.  Justice is the cardinal value of any civilized society and has been the cornerstone and bedrock of all great civilizations….

It is true that personal law of Muslims is protected by the constitution. But it is also true that the same constitution talks about fundamental rights and rights of equal opportunity for women. Personal laws cannot become the reason for backwardness of Muslim women just because a handful of Muslim men think that Sharia is divine which in fact it is not. Moreover, the law has to change over time and especially change when women groups have documented cases of discrimination due to the continuance of such a law. A community which does not change with the times is only condemned to be consigned to the flames of history....

आम तौर पर यह ख़याल है कि भारत में मुसलमानों की आबादी मुहम्मद ग़ौरी के हमलों के बाद शुरू हुई। यह विचार गलत नहीं भ्रामक भी है। मोहम्मद गौरी के हमले से पहले (यानी हिन्दू राजाओं के राज में) भारत में कई जगह मुसलमानों की नई आबादियाँ थीं जहां उनके मदरसे, खानकाह और धार्मिक संस्थान स्थापित थे। जो लोग धार्मिक संस्थानों के गठन और निर्माण की हतोत्साहित कठिनाइयों का थोड़ा सा भी अनुभव रखते हैं वही उनके दुख का भी अनुमान लगा सकते हैं जिनसे उनके बड़ों को दो चार होना पड़ा। अजमेर के अलावा जहां ख्वाजा मोईनुद्दीन ने पृथ्वीराज के ज़माने में अपनी खानकाह बनाई थी, बदायूं, कन्नौज, नागौर और बिहार के कुछ शहरों में मुसलमानों की खासी आबादी थी।


ہندوستان اور پاکستان میں کئی برسوں سے ایک رواج چل پڑا ہے کہ مذہب کے نام پر ایک بھیڑ جمع ہوتی ہے او رجس کو قصووار سمجھتی ہے، اس کو قتل کردیتی ہے، یوں تو اس بھیڑ کا مذہب الگ ہوتاہے ملک بھی جدا ہوتا ہے لیکن بھیڑ میں شامل لوگوں کا مزاج بالکل ایک جیسا ہوتا ہے۔ مشتعل مجمع جس کو قتل کرناچاہتا ہے اس پر کبھی گؤ کشی تو کبھی لڑکی کی چھیڑ نے کا الزام لگاتا ہے۔ کبھی یہی بھیڑ مذہب کی اہانت کرنے کے نام پر اور کبھی دھرم کے توہین کرنے کے نام پر کسی کو مار دیتی ہے۔ ہندوستان میں پہلو خان کو انتہا پسندوں کی ایک بھیڑ قتل کردیتی ہے توپاکستان کے مردان شہر میں مشعل خان نام کے مسلم نوجوان کو قتل کر کے اس کے کنبے میں انتہا پسند ی کی مشعل سے اندھیرا کردیا ہے۔

Islamophobic discussions and fear-mongering policies have arguably made us less safe, leading to the legitimization of wars and occupations that have destabilized the Middle East and strengthened groups like ISIS, while encouraging radicalization by social disenfranchisement at home. They have contributed to a culture of fear that has also been directed at, among others, communists and black men......

Sleepless in Dhaka
Anjum Hasan

How many people like him died? Estimates of the number of non-Bengalis killed ranges wildly between 20,000 and 5, 00,000. Yet these are the minor and the minority deaths — unable to find a place in most stories of the war I’ve encountered in Dhaka, not quite fitting in with the narrative of a beleaguered people fighting for their freedom and their language, their deaths reaching to many times these footnote-level numbers....
