    The War Within Islam

    Religious-ethnic violence has dominated the Pakistani landscape for several decades. Every now and then, when an identity crisis of national significance surfaces extra measures by otherwise liberal leaders, sweep in to woo support from the masses. While this clause bodes well with the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the state-backed persecution or the silence thereof for the said crimes isn’t warranted....


    Islam and the West

    Unlike Trump, Canadian leaders have consistently supported the Badawi family. In 2013, a year after Raif Badawi’s arrest, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, of the Conservative Party, granted Badawi’s wife and children political asylum in Canada. This summer, under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, of the Liberal Party, Canada granted them citizenship. After Canada called for the release Saudi Arabia’s peaceful activists, Marie-Pier Baril...

    While taking classes at the US Army War College, the officer, a devout Muslim, sometimes led Friday prayers at the local mosque.

    The Muslim became the perpetual and potential other, always suspected of being beef eaters and therefore potential outsiders. Nothing much has changed between then and now: cow has been made as the symbol of creating difference between Hindus and Muslims. Cow has become the weapon to target Muslims. No one asks any question from those involved in lynching; rather the onus is on the Muslim to prove that they do not eat beef.....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    It denounces the practice of celebrating the birth of the Prophet, accusing these people of imitating Christians – the “unbelievers” – in their celebration of the birth of Jesus. Those who make the graves of prophets and the righteous into mosques are also considered evil-natured. Saudi Arabia even had a plan to clear the grave of the Prophet to make way for development! They have already cleared many Islamic historical structures in the name of expansion and development for the Haj and Umrah pilgrimages where they make billions of dollars annually. Apparently, to the Saudi dynasty, money talks more than anything else....

    The criminal act of the Saudi state should have led to a larger debate about the absence of an atmosphere of liberal critique in much of the Arab and Muslim world. But then the tragedy is that most Muslim leaders themselves are so knee deep in this malice that they can only use the incident to earn some political points for themselves....

    Islamic Personalities

    Something the Qur’an and the Masnavi both have in common is that they are not books as we normally think of books being written. Both originated as oral expressions, and oral texts are different from written ones. Whereas written texts “set things in stone”, laying words like bricks on paper, oral texts are more like jazz standards: individual performers provide their own interpretation of familiar songs. In the same way, oral texts are open and flexible....

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
