    Islamic Society

    The post Ramazan activities of most Muslims are a testimony of this fact. The mosques once again crave for the big congregations, but millions of gallons of water are saved in the process, as the seasonal Muslims wait for next Ramazan to attend mosques for the daily five prayers.  What are the reasons for the drastic decline and disdain towards ‘piety’ and ‘rituals’ once the Shawwal moon has been sighted?...

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Jihadists interpret a famous verse from Surah al-Baqrah, like many other verses, as applicable to Muslims even today. This makes the Quranic verse appear self-contradictory. Jihadist ideologues have taken the word “Fitnah” to mean “kufr” (infidelity) and “shirk” (associating someone with God) with an aim to kill all non-Muslims and even Muslims who indulge in shirk (in their eyes by venerating idols or visiting shrines etc). This requires a fresh reading of this Qur'anic verse with a deeper insight into its linguistic implications and Qur'anic exegeses. The anti-terror Barelwi fatwa does quote the same verse in its refutation to the terrorist views, but it doesn’t discuss it in detail…….

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Note: As articles on NewAgeIslam.com have pointed out again and again, instructions given in any war lapse with the end of the war. The war-time verses in the holy Quran not only instruct Muslims to kill, but also motivate them, announcing rewards for fighting and punishment for not fighting, i.e., sitting at home, without any valid excuse. All this is quire natural. But at the same time Muslims must also understand that these verses were meant for those wars in the7th century CE and cannot be applicable to us today in the 21st century, 14 centuries after the wars that gave the Prophet and his companions’ victory, establishing Islam on the face of earth. Now our job is simply to see that God’s universal and eternal messages in Quran are available to all the people in their own languages, so they can comprehend it and learn from it. The contextual verses are a part of our glorious history and should be left there, so that we learn from them how near-insurmountable obstacles the Prophet (saw) faced in establishing Islam and leaving us his magnificent legacy. Violent extremists among us have and will continue to use and misuse these contextual verses for their own ends. Let us Muslims not fall in the trap. – Editor

    Do Not Repeat the Mistakes of 1989 in Allowing the Return of Taliban, New Age Islam Editor Sultan Shahin Asks International Community at UNHRC in Geneva

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....
