Islam and Politics

Disagreements between Australia and Indonesia often arise on religious issues, with Andreas saying that Islam had become a “determining factor in the bilateral relationship”....

 

While I appreciate his sense of justice and his efforts towards human rights, I have some difficulty reconciling his actions of performing religious rituals that include glorifying other forms of deities....

The on-going visit of Pope Francis to Abu Dhabi over the last couple of days will certainly go down as a landmark event. For no Pope has ever set foot on Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, until this week. But the story, arguably, is less about the Pope and more about the United Arab Emirates that is hosting him....

Maulana Syed Abu’l Mawdudi, Rachid al-Ghannouchi, and Javed Ahmad Ghamidi on ‘Islam and politics’, which I would like to describe, with a mixed-phrase, as “Theo-democratic, Reconciliatory Counter Narrative”....

The trend towards theocracy is taking hold in countries including but not limited to Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen and Nigeria....

There however, remained gaps in his Islamisation. Whether he performed Namaz remained a mystery; his fluency in Urdu was a non-starter. English was his real language; the next best was his mother tongue Gujarati....

 

It has been recognised by Islamic scholars that even though sacred texts contain holy words, their interpretation and application are human acts that can be debated and transmuted in an inclusive manner....

What we're currently witnessing in China is the product of a framework that points to Islam and the expression of Muslim identity as the root cause of terrorism, a viewpoint that finds its roots in, and is a staple of, Western political discourse....

 

Another statement attributed to him likens the Muslim League leadership to old coins. In fact, on either side of the border after Independence a host of people emerged claiming to have struggled for independence. ...

 

Many civil rights activists and organizations have remained silent as well, not because they lack concern or sympathy for the Palestinian people, but because they fear loss of funding from foundations, and false charges of anti-Semitism....

Central Asian Islam is quite different from that of the Middle East, however, and especially from that promoted in modern times by Wahhabi and Salafi groups sponsored by the House of Saud. Uighur prayer can involve chanting and dancing, and music is not forbidden....

 

The pseudo-Islamists want to establish a prototype “Khilafa” (Islamic State) by acting as Homo Politicus (A man of Politics) and Homo Religious (A man of religion). In contrast, it is the Muslim predicament with modernity that causes trouble in Islam....

The scope of this conflict is hard to grasp in fragmented news reports but easy to see if you pull out a map and look at Israel’s surroundings, from Libya through Syria and Iraq to Yemen....

 

In sum, Pakistan’s inability to shed its Indian geopolitical, cultural and Islamic identity has forced it to adopt anti-Indian postures in order to differentiate itself from the mother country.....

It should be clarified at this point that after the establishment of Pakistan, the detractors of Zafarullah Khan alleged that because of his incompetence and insincerity many areas went out of Pakistan....

 

There is danger for every one of us in Pakistan now. Whoever starts saying I am Uighur, I am Turkistani, is in danger.....

The founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, wanted a separate country for Muslims but his political upbringing in a pluralist society prevented him from declaring Pakistan an Islamic state....

 

The lies in this case? There is no such thing as an Israeli occupation, there is no such thing as Palestinian refugees — by definition no such thing as a Right of Return — and there is no such thing as occupied Jerusalem, since the Holy City is Israel’s “eternal capital”, and look, even the US recognises that “fact”....

 

“My apologies, but Mr Jinnah says that Pakistan will be a modern state like Turkey but in the same vein he speaks about socialism as well. Democracy is neither in Islam nor in Socialism.”....

 

Jamaat-e Islami has legally been pushed off the ground and for this reason security agencies need to ponder over what would be the potential move of Jamaat while being in underground as our history suggests that ‘underground parties’ often resort to violent means in pursuit of their political aim....

 

‘Triple Talaq Bill’ as put forth by the BJP government is not based on ensuring and providing ‘gender justice’ for Muslim women but rather to ‘discipline’ and criminalize the entire Muslim community....

Islam’s history in China is more than a millennium old, and there have been previous clashes—as with other faiths—between imperial authorities and believers, most notably the Dungan rebellions of the 19th century....

 

Muslims were being killed and looted at a large scale. If, during the horrible days, Jawahar Lal (Nehru) had not come out and gone around in the dangerous lanes and by lanes of Delhi slapping the Hindus to stop the riots, not a single Muslim would have survived in the city....

 

Bangladesh flourishes today. And Pakistan has one-less to worry about from its disaffected components....

 

Repetition of the incident is not pleasant but it should be remembered that after the establishment of Pakistan, when Liaqat Ali Khan came to Lahore to address a public meeting as the Prime Minister, some local Muslim League die hard activists had danced with their lower garments off right in front of the dais....
