Modern suicide terrorism began in the 1980s under conditions where the coercer was the weaker actor and the target the stronger. From Hezbollah, Hamas, the Tamil Tigers and Chechnyan rebel groups to Al Qaeda and the militant Islamic State group, the rhetoric of major suicide terrorist groups reflects the logic of coercive punishment. This technique’s purpose is to inflict punishment and provoke fear....

Attacking Sufism
Maria Sartaj

Sufism allows one to have their own unique spiritual experience, in its true essence it never judges; I’ve experienced chants by Hindus at Ajmer Sharif who cried ‘Gharib Nawaz Ki Jai Ho’ in ecstasy and it was as powerful as any other statement of allegiance. One doesn’t become a Sufi just by listening to Coke Studio; it is rather a way of life and a submission to divine power that brings peace to the soul.

This coming closer together of various religious groups is in line with the Prophet’s saying that all creatures are [part of] God’s family. The Hilf al-Fudul underlies the need for us to unite this family of God by rising above religious and other ideological differences and working together for protecting and promoting common human values.....

What Explains BJP’s Win in UP
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

While reams of paper have been wasted arguing the positives and negatives of demonetization, what escaped the analysts’ attention was that this was never a move about black money or to positively influence the economic order. It was a thorough political move aimed at transforming Modi into an icon of the poor. While we all saw the recalibration of ATMs to accommodate new notes, what we missed was the simultaneous recalibration of Modi’s image as the messiah of the poor. Politics is about perceptions and till the time Modi is seen as hurting the interests of the rich, he will remain the darling of the masses....

یوپی کے نتائج سے لوگ بھونچکا رہ گئے ، حالانکہ یہ اس سیاسی، سماجی، فکری عمل کا نتیجہ ہے جومدت سے جاری ہے،جس کو تحریک آزادی کے دوران اوراس کے بعد مزید پر لگ گئے۔ ہمیں یہ اعتراف کرنا چاہئے کہ ہندو اکثریت فطرتاًفرقہ پرست نہیں۔ مگرگزشتہ تقریباً سو،سواسوسال کی سیاست نے اورکچھ ہماری غلط روش نے ان کے دلوں میں کچھ وسوسے بیشک پیدا کردئے۔ ہندوقوم فرقہ پرست ہوتی تو تعویذ گنڈہ کا دھندہ کرنے والوں کے حجروں میں ہندو خواتین کی بھیڑ نظرنہ آتی۔ ان کی عقیدت مندی کا عالم یہ ہے جس احترام سے اپنے دیوی دیوتا کے سامنے سرجھکاتے ہیں، اسی احترام سے مسلم صوفیاء کے مزارات پر بھی سجدہ ریز ہوتے ہیں۔

وبالمثل، فإن الأدب الذي يكره الكراهية لا يزال يدرس في المدارس الدينية وغير الدينية في البلدان الإسلامية في جميع أنحاء العالم، بما في ذلك في الغرب. وتواصل الكتب المدرسية السلفية السعودية تعليم كراهية الأجانب للطلاب المسلمين في جميع أنحاء العالم. ويقال لهم، على سبيل المثال، أنه لا ينبغي لهم أن يعملوا لغير المسلمين ولا يوظفوا غير المسلمين إذا كانت هناك خيارات أخرى. مصطلح "غير مسلم" للكتب المدرسية السعودية يعني جميع غير السلفيين وغير الوهابيين، بما في ذلك المسلمين من الطوائف الأخرى، وخاصة المسلمين ذوي الاتجاه الصوفي. الهجمات على الأضرحة الصوفية مثلما وقعت مؤخرا في السند، باكستان، مما أسفر عن مقتل ما يقرب من مائة الزوار وإصابة 250 بجروح هي نتيجة طبيعية لهذه التعاليم السلفية السعودية.

 

Ever since Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan survived the July 2016 coup attempt, he appears to have lost his sense of diplomacy, his statecraft and arguably even his mental equilibrium. This is visible in ample measure in the insecure President’s body language and rhetoric in the wake of a diplomatic row snowballing into a major crisis before the referendum he is seeking from the Turks, both within and outside Turkey...

 

Female Kurdish fighters, who represent less than 1% of the roughly 200,000 peshmerga forces, have become “the bankable icon” of the fight against the Islamic State. But beyond the illusions of a land that supports women’s rights, the reality in Iraqi Kurdistan is much less glamorous....

 

None of the incidents that forcefully point to Europe's "Turkish awakening" happened out of the blue. At the beginning of February, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Erdogan held a tense meeting in Ankara. Erdogan clearly rejected Merkel's mention of "Islamist terror" on grounds that "the expression saddens Muslims because Islam and terror cannot coexist."...

 

Identity isn’t something you suppress for public spaces. I don’t stop being a Muslim when I come into work and turn into a journalist. I practise my faith in the canteen by not choosing the pork option, or when I ask for a soft drink instead of wine at the after-work drinks. If my colleagues notice that I’m doing this, and it makes them uncomfortable, should I be forced to behave differently?...

 

I can’t stress this enough. Would you be a relationship with someone you never talk to? No. So how do you expect to have a relationship with God when you never talk to Him? Yes, prayer is key, but your Dua’ is where your personal relationship with God lives. After prayer, just talk to Him. Tell Him what’s on your mind. Tell Him you’re frustrated at home. You’re unhappy with school. Give thanks for His blessings. Ask for forgiveness for your wrongs. Tell Him you’re sorry. Tell Him you’re working on being a better Muslim. Talk as if He’s standing right in front of you, essentially, He is....

 

Chivalry began in a secular Arabia where the tribal code of honour with all its ramifications was the basis of right and wrong. Heroes were those who exemplified the characteristics of the chivalrous attributes in that society. It was so important that as Islam enveloped the area, it remained part of the new social order of life and continued as part of the human code of life with the conquests of new territory. As such, chivalry became part of the many Arab contributions to the West....

The Ulema need to stand united in dealing with extremism; they must forget their differences and fight for the Muslims who are suffering at the hands of these few thousand miscreants who are misusing Islam for their own misdeeds. They can build an alternative, the narrative of peace and love; and when the people will no longer be misguided they will not fall in the hands of terrorists nor pay heed to their words....

 

For a more moderate future, investing in traditional Islam and propagation of Sufism will help the common man remain liberal. Because the moment the man on the street starts turning radical, Pakistan will be caught in a vortex of violence that is already pulling it towards its centre. Pakistan needs more Sehwans, where men and women can dance together. Where Muslims, Hindus and Christians practice spirituality with the same ardour and where the keeper of the shrine is still a Hindu....

 

She appreciates his “cultural scope”, that “spans continents”, and suggests that his “near-seamless transition from a village prodigy to a global scholar” is a “stunning example of Muslim cosmopolitanism”. She refers to Nadwi’s kindness, reserve, politeness and patience, and his open-mindedness and respect for differences while being deeply-rooted in his faith....

Why Do Some Men Rape?
Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

Importantly, the rapist needs this emotional support too. They have a long and painful childhood from which they need a great deal of help to recover. It is this healing that will enable them to accurately identify the perpetrators of the violence they suffered and about whom they have so many suppressed (and now projected) feelings which need to be felt and safely expressed. You need a lot of empathy and the capacity to listen to address violence in this context meaningfully and effectively. You also need it to raise compassionate and powerful children in the first place.....

معلوم ہوا کہ تمام شعبۂ حیات میں ہماری پستی اور پسماندگی کی وجہ مادی زوال نہیں ہے۔ بلکہ تاریخ بتاتی ہے کہ ہماری قوتِ فکر وعمل پہلے فنا ہوئی ہے اور اس کے بعد ہماری شان و شوکت پر زوال کا خزاں طاری ہوا ہے۔ فکری بحران اور عملی سرطان نے پہلے ہمارے دامن میں پناہ لی ہے اور اس کے بعد صحتِ عمل اور اصول و معتقدات کی تصحیح و تطہیر کی فکر نے ہمارے اندر سے دم توڑا ہے۔ جس کا نتیجہ یہ ہوا کہ خالق ارض وسماوات کی ان خاص عنایتوں سے ہم محروم ہو گئے جو اس نے ہمیں اپنے پیارے نبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کے توسط سے عطا فرمایا تھا۔

Fortunately, the ultra-religious sorts — which this land is abundantly blessed with — are free from useless doubt. For them more is better. Every newborn, say the ultras, comes with a guaranteed Rizq (provision) stamped on its forehead. Now let’s assume, ignoring the visible contrary evidence, that this is correct. Yet there shall remain an impossibly difficult problem even if food and water were to drop miraculously from the skies. ....

 
When You Beat Children, You Defy the Prophet
Nawar Firdaws and Tarrence Tan

Quoting a saying of the Prophet, Zainal reminded Muslim parents that hitting children below the age of 10 would be against a religious prohibition. Even with a child older than 10, he said, parents should punish him only to educate him and never use him as a punching bag to vent out their frustrations....

 

The policeman, Mumtaz Qadri, who shot Taseer, was hanged in 2016 after being sentenced by a judge of an anti-terrorism court. The judge left immediately for Hajj after the sentencing, but the prosecutor complained of death threats being flung at him daily. Qadri has a grand mausoleum just outside Islamabad, where thousands go to pay homage to him. The son of the murdered governor, Shahbaz Taseer, was kidnapped by the Taliban and kept under savage conditions in Afghanistan for three years before he was able to escape....
