The implications of the AKP’s defeat in Istanbul are significant even beyond Turkey. The AKP was one of the first moderate Islamist parties to come to the fore. Its primary appeal was populist, promising a better life to the ordinary man or woman...

 

The occasional theatrics of putting Pakistan on the ‘grey-list’ or threatening it with the ‘blacklist’, as well as imposing various conditions to provide ‘bail-outs’ will continue. But with no effective and comprehensive sanctions, there is little hope of Pakistani giving up its policy of using terror as strategic asset....

 

Disobedience spread from the bottom up when the order to crush peaceful protesters was issued, and when some soldiers and officers, such as colonel Hamid Othman Hamid, sided with protesters, leaving the top ranks little choice in the end but to sacrifice al-Bashir, their commander-in-chief, to save their own skin.....

 

In addition to Saudi Arabia’s human rights abuses is also another little noted but critical reason to close the Centre, and in fact other similar foreign-funded Centres with funding from Islamic states that claim to advance “interrelgious and intercultural dialogue.” Such centres are also often fronts for advancing the Sharia values of Salafi-promoting states....

 

Unsurprisingly, the Palestinians have rejected what they deem as the "slap of the century" and refuse to participate in any meeting that is meant to facilitate its implementation. But why are so many Arab governments - who have repeatedly voiced their support for Palestinian national rights in a state of their own – facilitating...

Nehru wrote in The Discovery of India, “A Buddhist or Jain in India is a hundred per cent product of Indian thought and culture, yet neither is a Hindu by faith. It is, therefore, entirely misleading to refer to Indian culture as Hindu culture.” Nehru’s idea of India is not reducible to a single faith. “In later ages”, Nehru wrote, “this culture was greatly influenced by the impact of Islam, and yet it remained… distinctively Indian.”...

After his victory was confirmed, Mr Morsi’s first act was to address a crowd in Tahrir Square, the heart of the revolution. There he awkwardly unbuttoned his jacket to show the crowd that he was not wearing a bulletproof vest—a man-of-the-people gesture that he hoped would endear him to the nation....

 

The elders of the village refuse to let anyone demolish it as they believe it’s a house of God. The elders of village are firm that as long as they live, the Mosque will stand and they will stand guard to prevent demolition or encroachment...

 

The Sultanates of Sulu and Maguindanao were established ca. 1400’s. According to “official” Philippine history, the Philippines (Luzon, Visayas, Palawan and Mindanao) was discovered by Fernando Magallanes in 1521...

 

The fluid political situation, the weak governments, the unstable frontiers and too many foreign interventionist powers will most probably culminate in a Middle East of a distinct geographical landscape different from the region we had known....

 

Criticism of Iran is not simply sectarianism. There are many critics in Iraq's Shia Muslim community as well. Protesters in the predominantly Shia Basra burned the Iranian consulate last summer during protests.....

 

The American University of Afghanistan, whose campus vicinity recently saw yet another bomb attack, is another matter. The university was supposed to signify all the neo-liberal values that the Taliban have openly decried. Male and female students studying together...

 

Ms. Al-Rasheed argued that the summits exposed “the contradiction in the recent Saudi push to ban and criminalise Islamism. The three conferences are not being held to discuss theological matters, but to seek support for Saudi Arabia’s king over serious, controversial and divisive political crises,”...

 

What Imran Khan did was take his followers and the country at large towards a state of illusion where every field was green, the sky was blue and everyone was in bliss. This bubble of illusion burst and during the last nine months....

 

He has rejected the use of violence, including against Israel, acknowledged the Holocaust, denounced the efforts of Holocaust deniers, and announced that he would next January become the most senior Islamic cleric to visit Auschwitz on the 75th anniversary of its liberation....

 

The zeal of the BJP to spread Hindi in non-Hindi States is based on deeply flawed premises. To begin with, the government does not have any authentic data on the linguistic composition of the country....

 

My appeal therefore is not to PTI because it is an incompetent and fascist organisation and the government it is running is bound to fail miserably sooner or later. My appeal is to the powers that be behind the scenes as someone who loves this country and is troubled by the direction it is taken....

 

It is time for change in Pakistan and it is going to be difficult, given the tough man expected to be ruling India for some time — Modi. Pakistan’s economy is in deep crisis. Meanwhile, China’s persuasion to “normalise” the state of Pakistan is becoming intense....

 

If he is able to achieve troop withdrawal as a promise kept, he would score important points with his base. If the withdrawal does take place, India can only hope that peace in Afghanistan does not lead Pakistan to redirect in strategic focus to Kashmir....

 

The first border fencing-related skirmish was reported in the then South Waziristan Agency of the then Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in April 2007. Pakistani SFs operating in South Waziristan made a three-tier security deployment on April 11, 2007, to stop cross-border infiltration by militants into Afghanistan.....

 

In the meantime, a group of academics have been prosecuted and sentenced for having signed a 2016 petition calling for peace in the country’s southeast where clashes erupted between the illegal PKK and the state following the collapse of a peace process....

 

Savarkar-Godse duo is looked up among most of the followers of Hindutva ideology. That’s what explains the spontaneous outbursts of the likes of Sakshi Maharaj, Anantkrishna Hegde and Pragya Thakur. BJP is compelled to make the show of speaking against them, bowing to electoral and global compulsions, while letting them thrive in the party in various capacities!... 

 
Money, Media and the Climate Crisis
Money, Media and the Climate Crisis
John Scales Avery, New Age Islam

In order to save human civilization and the biosphere from the most disastrous effects of climate change, we need to act immediately. But it is difficult to mobilize public opinion behind urgently needed action because the most severe effects of global warming belong to the long-term future….

 

AA for long has displayed efficient tactical prowess in successful and coordinated attacks. In the recent past AA insurgents have carried out several major attacks, including the March 9, 2019, incident in which AA insurgents attacked the Yotayoke Police Outpost...

 

Apart from Jordan, Saudi Arabia and now Morocco, Turkey is also seemingly vying for influence in Jerusalem. All four have historical claims to leadership in the Muslim world and all four seem intent on playing a major role in the future of the holy city....
