Islam and Politics

Various sources place the number of Uighurs and other Muslim minorities held in detention camps in Xinjiang this year between 1 million and 1.5 million, with some estimates going as high as 3 million....

 

The immediate response of the Muslim community to the Supreme Court verdict on Ayodhya was a sense of relief. But now, politicians of various affiliations have started coming out and seeking to revive discord that helps them keep their politics in the limelight. ..

 

The Uyghurs was an ethically Turkish group who number just over 11 million people. They live mostly in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in North-West China. The vast majority of Uyghurs are Muslims, more specifically Sunni Muslims....

 

These people need to think and think again that the community is no longer interested in this issue which has been thrust on them partly by their own myopic leaders and partly by different political parties. They should simply stop acting on behalf of Muslims and concentrate their energies on various other things which is plaguing the republic.

My plea to both the Mullahs and the Left is the same: please leave the Muslims alone. They want to move away....

A TikTok post by a young woman, pretending to give eyelash curling advice while actually condemning China's crackdown on Muslims in Xinjiang, has gone viral on the Chinese-owned app that has been accused of censoring anti-Beijing content....

<

 

But now Sauytbay is speaking out about the barbarity she saw inside one of China’s clandestine ‘re-education centres’, which are claimed to hold up to three million members of Muslim ethnic groups from the country’s western regions....

Lending Support to Baloch Movement
Lending Support to Baloch Movement
Nava Thakuria, New Age Islam

Now Marri along with other Baloch nationals have taken a task for setting up Indo-Baloch friendship platforms in different countries, more precisely in India even though it is a Hindu majority nation. But it is quite amazing that the Baloch freedom struggle has still not mingled with Islamist extremism....

 

Azeem Ibrahim of the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute has pointed out that the acquiescence of Muslim-majority countries illustrates “’Muslim solidarity’ is a convenient and effective slogan to be thrown at domestic audiences” but, when push comes to a shove from China, you can “forget about the Ummah.”...

 

“We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned over the decision of several of the Muslim litigants in the Ayodhya dispute to challenge the recent unanimous decision of a constitution bench of the Supreme Court in favour of a Ram Temple at the disputed plot....

One is that the sources of discontent are primarily old, familiar ones that also underlay the first Arab Spring. They involve the basic human desire for a better life. Simply put, the target of the discontent is the inability of existing political systems to deliver services and economic opportunity in a fair, uncorrupt, and effective way….

 

If a Hindu becomes a scholar on Islam, (s)he will understand that the Holy Qur'an mentions the words "Zubur al-Awwalin" (texts of the most ancient) which Dara Shikoh said is the Upanishads and the Vedic scriptures. Similarly, if a Muslim becomes an expert on the Vedas, (s)he will discover that Vasundhara Kutumbakam (‘the world is one family’) is the deep conviction of Indian civilisation symbolizing that Indians have always considered the entire world “as one united family”…

Indian Muslims must accept the SC’s Judgment without going to file any review petition. They should close the chapter of contention between the two communities by accepting whatever the Supreme Court has issued. ... This is what the Maqasid Sharia demands today in its vast objectives including the welfare of the society. It is time for Muslims to act upon universal teachings of tolerance, patience, harmony and peace and thereby winning the hearts of other fellow human beings including those who have great antipathy and prejudice against Muslims, as any reaction to hate increases nothing but hate...

I said: “What is an angel? That is not our topic. The thing is you don’t want Jews to have a state of their own.” To explain why Jews should not have a state in the Middle East, she said: “Jews were in Palestine thousands of years ago, but they later left.”...

 

However, there is no need for the ‘liberal media’ to point out that Firoz’s father sings Sanskrit Bhajans and maintains a cow shelter. This almost seems like the media’s support is dependent on his father being not a very ‘strict Muslim’. Certainly Firoz did not get this job because his father knows Sanskrit and composes Hindu devotional songs. We need to support Firoz irrespective of the social location of his family....

Muslims need enlightened leaders who talk about education and employment. More importantly, they should also talk about reforming certain aspects of the personal law which have a tendency to create a negative stereotype in the minds of the majority community. It is time perhaps that some Muslims went to court and argued that these so called stakeholders do not represent us. They just represent themselves and their myopic interests....

Some people have not only expressed their displeasure with the meetings of Naqvi Sahib and Shri Ajit Doval, but have left no stone unturned in insulting the attendees and accusing them of conspiracies. But the fact is that everyone went there for Samvad (dialogue), not for Sawdebazi (bargaining). We must not forget that the spirit of democracy lies neither in polemics (mujadala) nor in debates (munazara), but rather in dialogue (mukalama). Nevertheless, we understand the emotions of angry people in this issue……

 

If we are to examine avatars from the prism of spiritual goals, Ram’s transformative role was to deliver to the world the ideal of Sattwa through action. Unlike the next avatar Krishna, Ram neither gave any spiritual discourse nor announced to the world his Avatarhood....

 

“People had already decided that we will accept whatever decision the court makes. This is about respecting the court,” said the 45-year-old businessman in Varanasi. He was referring to the city’s Muslim community. ..

Absolute necessities (Zaruriyat) are classified in what preserves one’s faith (din), soul (Nafs), wealth (Maal), mind (Aql) and offspring (Nasl). Some jurists add the preservation of honour to these five popular necessities. Preservation of these necessities is the objective of Islamic Sharia. So in the context of SC’s judgment on Babri Masjid-Ram Janam Bhoomi, even if we believe that a land once a Masjid is always a Masjid, we will still have to take into consideration the objective of Islamic Sharia which preserves one’s life, removes difficulty, eliminates corruption and ensures social interest. This will be in line with the Fiqhi maxim “Necessities cause the prohibited things to be permissible”...

Furthermore, we hear voices, some reputed to be sane and sensible, exhorting the Sunni Waqf Board to refrain from accepting five acres of land directed to be given to them as part of complete justice in the circumstances. This might be myopic and may detract from the moral capital that the Muslim side has gained in the course of the judgment....

We, Mister Muslim, lost the opportunity for winning Hindu goodwill by our gesture, arresting if not reversing the rising tide of militant Hindutva and strengthening secular forces....

Muslims are at the forefront of maintaining that peace, and the community must be lauded for its patience and restraint in the face of repeated provocations from the state, the mob and the media over the last five years. And finally, betrayal by its last bastion of hope, the Supreme Court, on November 9....

After eight years of deliberations, India’s Supreme Court has issued a verdict that settles one of the most protracted inter-religious conflicts in the country’s turbulent history. The court’s decision couldn’t have come at a better time....

The West African country accomplished that by filing an official complaint against Myanmar with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague for violations of the United Nations’ 1948 Genocide Convention linked to abuses against its Muslim Rohingya minority....

 

Given the challenging nature of terrorism, the UN should eliminate or minimise the sectoral treaties and proactively negotiate a comprehensive convention on international terrorism....
