     In the film itself, the Emperor, a Muslim, is married to Jodhabai, a Hindu Rajput, which, by implications makes the Mughal lineage part Hindu from then onwards. There is no indication that she has converted; she celebrates Janmashtami in the palace – where the filmmaker K. Asif inserted an unforgettable song sung by Lata Mangeshkar, ‘Mohe Panghat Pe Nandlal Chedh Gayo Re’. Later in the film, in all together more tragic circumstances, Lata Mangeshkar also sings the ‘Naat ‘Bekas pe Karam Kijiye Sarkar-e-Madina’. The lyrics for both were written by Shakil Badayuni and were composed by Naushad....

They have had to cover their faces when they go out in public.  'They have had to remove the rosary that hangs from their car rear-view mirror for fear of attack.’...

    جنہوں نے یہ اور ان جیسے سوالات رکھنے کے لئے مجھے کال کئے میں ان لوگوں کو یہ یقین دلانا چاہتا ہوں کہ نیو ایج اسلام اپنے نقطہ نظر پر قائم ہے ، اگر چہ ہم اپنے کالم نگاروں کو اظہار رائے کی مکمل آزادی عطا کرتے ہیں ۔ جو پیراگراف کچھ قارئین کو ناگوار گزرا میں اس کے بارے میں یہ کہنا چاہتا ہوں کہ اس میں جناب غلام رسول دہلوی نے جن خیالات کا ظہار کیا ہے مجھے نہیں لگتا کہ وہ ان خیالات کے حامل ہیں ۔ انہوں نے اس پیراگراف کی شروعات ‘‘کچھ لوگ یہ کہہ سکتے ہیں’’ جملے سے کی ہے ۔ ممکن ہے کہ کہا جائے کہ اس ‘‘کچھ لوگ’’ میں وہ بھی شامل ہیں ، لیکن مجھے نہیں لگتا کہ ایسا کہنا درست ہوگا ۔ اس پورے مضمون کا انداز گفتگو اور سیاق و سباق ایک اور ہی نظریہ پیش کرتا ہے ۔ جہاں تک میں سمجھتا ہوں غلام رسول دہلوی اپنے اس پیرا گراف میں صرف اس بات پر تشویش کا اظہار کر رہے ہیں کہ کیا پاکستان کے وزیر اعظم عمران نبی ﷺ کی اسلامی ریاست مدینہ کے اپنے سابق نظریہ پر کاربند رہیں گے یا بعد کی ان پالیسیوں پر عمل درآمد کریں گے جنہوں نے فقہائے اسلام اور پاکستان کے دہشت گرد نظریہ سازوں کی نظروں میں سابقہ پالیسیوں کو منسوخ کر دیا ہے ۔ وہ اپنے اس پیراگراف میں صرف یہ وضاحت طلب کرتے ہوئے دکھائی دے رہیں کہ عمران خان کس مدینہ ماڈل کی پیروی کریں گے ؛ میثاق مدینہ پر مشتمل ابتدائی مدینہ ماڈل کی جس میں کثیر ثقافتی اقدار کو فروغ حاصل تھا یا اس زمانے کی پالیسیوں کی جس میں ‘‘مدینہ کی اسلامی ریاست کی ایک جارحانہ تصویر ہمیں دیکھنے کو ملتی ہے جس میں غزوات، توہین رسالت کا قانون، یہودیوں اور عیسائیوں کا ریاست سے نکالا جانا اور ‘‘لا اکراہ فی الدین’’ جیسے قرآن کے پرامن آیات کا منسوخ کیا جانا بھی پایا جاتا ہے’’۔

    Religion has also brought prejudice. There are religious leaders who believe that they have all the right to decide what religion is and how it is to be practised. They think their way is the only way and only they know the truth.

    The Islamic State (ISIS) temporarily managed to win over disgruntled elements among the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban alongside youth from the remote districts in Afghanistan’s east soon after restructuring and renaming itself Islamic State in Khorasan (IS-K) in 2014. IS-K’s initial victories against the Taliban and the Afghan government on both the battle and propaganda fronts rang alarm bells in world capitals, particularly among the weaker neighbouring Central Asian states...

    ...I also felt a tsunami of love pouring forth from our world family. For the first time I felt this world family personally and the magnitude of this love overpowered hatred, anger, disbelief and shock. I knew this is who we truly are as human beings. I knew that those young men who became terrorists must have been disconnected from love, disconnected from their own true essence, and that enabled them to kill other human beings....

    Muslims who support such violent or oppressive responses to blasphemy are missing two important points. One is that it is them, not the blasphemers, who are defaming Islam, by presenting it as an immature tradition that has little room for civilized discourse. The second point is that their zealotry is not as religiously grounded as they think. To see this, one must look at the Quran — the most fundamental and only undisputed source of Islam. Most notably, throughout all of its 6,236 verses, it never tells Muslims to silence blasphemy with force. It tells them only to respond with dignity. ...

    Islamic Ideology

    It is widely recognized that, on the topic of violence, the Qur'an speaks with more than one voice. Some verses speak for peace and others for war. The conventional explanation is that the difference hinges on the migration of the early Muslim community from Mecca to Medina: in Mecca Muslims were persecuted while Muhammad and the Qur'an preached non-violence and tolerance...

    Islamic Ideology

    There are certainly war-related rulings in the Quran and Ahadith, but they are contextual and relevant only for preventing oppression, curbing religious persecutions and gaining religious rights. It will be injustice for any “Islamist or Jihadist groups” to apply them to a pluralistic country, especially India, where people of different religions coexist with all their respective religious freedom and civil rights….

    Adjurations in the Quran
    Adjurations in the Quran
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Scholars of Islam have strangely struggled with explaining the adjurations in the Quran when these offer them the opportunity to show their skills of interpretation and understanding of metaphors and of poetic allusions. Some have even wondered “what does Allah mean by swearing by something that is inferior to Him?”!  Others are clearly embarrassed by Allah swearing so often because a man who swears often is looked down upon....

    National interest and foreign policy was “dearer” to Pakistan than the actual objectives of jihad, according to Bhat.

    Islamic Q and A

    Cooperating with ISIS or any other “Islamist” terror outfits is forbidden and an act of severe oppression.

    Islam fought against polytheism practiced in Arabia and wiped it out very rapidly.

    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....
