Wong, also clearly infuriated, told Hanson: “It is one thing to wear religious dress as a sincere act of faith and another to wear it here as a stunt in the Senate chamber.”

Hanson’s call for the banning of the Burqa prompted disorderly interjections from across the chamber.

A Panel Discussion "Unite India against Communal Hatred" Moderated by Umar Shariff and Participated by Various Interfaith Speakers



Tunisia's "Islamist" Ennahda party announced last month that it was moving away from so-called "political Islam". The announcement is seen as a move to broaden its following by a party that has been labelled "moderate Islamist" for 30 years. While the move is welcomed by many, others raise questions: Can Muslim-majority countries strike a balance between faith and democracy? Or, is there an irreconcilable tension between liberal values and Islamic beliefs?...


The unprecedented rise of majoritarian politics all around the world has led to volatile debates on the way we define nationalism, secularism and liberalism. While one puts identity and nation first, another frees us to pursue faith, the third involves a commitment to protect minorities.....

Kashmiri Muslims living in the town turned up at the temple to celebrate Shivratri, the biggest festival on the calendar of Kashmiri Pandits. A local contractor Imtiaz Ahmad led the prayers after dozens of young men scrubbed the temple floor clean; pouring water on the Shiv Ling, the representation of the Hindu deity Shiva. He also offered fruits and sweets. It may be a small step....


The Rise of Reason

The Rise of Reason
Pervez Hoodbhoy

I have been worried about the decline of reason and the resurgence of unreason. Now for quite a long time this is something that is quite universal. It is there in every country of the world but more and some and less in the others. It is something which has enormous implications for the future of human existence and for the resolution of our problems. Let me back up a little bit. About 300 years ago, Europe went through a phase which is called the age of reason. It emerged from darkness, from the fight against superstition, and this fight then led to the birth of modern Science;…



Darwin and Evolution in the Muslim World: Science as Silent Subversion  ڈارون اور مسلم دنیا میں ارتقاءکا نظریہ : سائنس ایک خاموش تخریب؛ پرویز ہودبھائی
Pervez Hoodbhoy

چند سال قبل میں نے اسلام اور سائنس کے عنوان پر پاکستان کی سب سے مشہور یونیورسٹی یعنی لاہور میں لاہور یونیورسٹی مینجمنٹ سائنسز میں ایک خطاب دیا تھا۔ اور وہاں بھی اسی طرح ایک مثال کے طور پر میں نے کہا کہ اس لمحے لاکھوں لوگ قحط کو دور کرنے کے لئے بارش کی دعا کر رہے ہیں۔ اور اگر آپ کو یہ لگتا ہے کہ سائنس کسی کام کی چیز ہے تو آپ کو یہ جاننا چاہئے کہ بارش دعا سے نازل نہیں ہوگی۔ وہاں بھی لوگ اسی طرح بھڑک اٹھے اور وہ واقعہ انٹرنیٹ پر شائع ہو گیا اور یونیورسٹی کی انتظامیہ کے پاس بھی یہ معاملہ چلا گیا جسے یہ بتایا گیا کہ میں ایسی باتیں کر رہا ہوں جو کفر اور الحاد ہیں۔ لہٰذا، یہ دوسرا رد عمل تھا۔



There is forth reaction which is claimed honour-ship by Muslims of all discoveries in science so if you go to the websites if you type Islamic Science in Google you will get typically internet banner which says that miracles predicted 1400 years ago and everything from black holes to quantum mechanics to antibiotics, everything is over there. I wish I had time or I could tell you about my experiences with conversation with Mullas, I asked one very prominent Maulvi, Mulla on television, and said if everything is over there in the Quran how come the west has invented all of these, and we do not have it, he said what you do not know is that before a western scientist goes to bed, he studies the Quran, in the morning when he wakes up he reads it again when he goes to his laboratory where he already knows what he is going to find……


کیا یہ حضرت ابو بکر صدیق کو مسلمان اور خلیفہ اول سمجھتی ہیں؟ حضرت عمر کو مسلمان اور خلیفہ دوم سمجھتی ہیں؟ حضرت عثمان کو کیا یہ مسلمان اور خلیفہ سمجھتی ہیں؟ کیا یہ حضرت عائشہ کو محمد ﷺ کی بیوی اور مسلمان سمجھتی ہیں؟ ان کا جواب دیجئے۔ ...

Sayyidina Umar is noted to have said ‘Beware of meat, because it has an addiction like the addiction of wine.’ Today, there are Muslims eating meat 3 times a day and then they start questioning why they have all these diseases. ...



“Why don’t Muslims speak out against terrorism?” This is as much a statement as it is a question. It implies that Muslims do not denounce terrorism because they implicitly support it. This is a fallacy...

Critics say until the community leader speaks out against cutting it will not stop. The United Nations has called female genital mutilation a human rights violation done without consent that has no medical benefits.  It is often done by someone with no medical knowledge in a non-clinical setting increasing the risk of infection and error. The procedure can create lifelong pain and psychological trauma....

Its creators say that they're promoting a message that UK Muslims are a diverse cosmopolitan and above all happy lot and why shouldn't they be, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the UK. New analysis of census figures even suggests that it could become the country's dominant religion in as little as 10 years time....


One might say, what about this Hadith? What if it were really an authentic Hadith? Did the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) actually say this? Rest assured, by the grace of Allah Almighty. Let us leave the understanding of all Takfiri groups that unfortunately do exist and say, “The Prophet says I was ordered to fight the people, all the people, in all times and all places”. Let us keep away from all such ignorance. Let us stop making such a false accusation against Islam due to lack of knowledge and understanding....

There is a video of Zakir Naik smugly telling the host of a chat show that non-Muslims are not allowed to preach in an Islamic state. Why? Well, we Muslims already have the truth so why should we allow others to preach falsehoods in our lands? Never mind the fact that Muslims are freely living, worshipping and preaching in the West... And if you are offended by Zakir, he adds, you can just “sue the Quran.” Despite the fact his style goes completely against the Quran, he feels he is God’s elect....


This is one of the absolute top clerics of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, which provides the authentic interpretation and laws of Islam. They correct other interpretations to lead Muslims to the right version of Islam and distribute these interpretations worldwide. Very famous. His word is law in Saudi Arabia and he represents the highest authority. Convert his title into a U.S. equivalent and al-Kalbani would represent the equivalent of a Supreme Court Chief Justice....



These developments mainly occurred between East, Central Asia, Al-Andalusia, and North Africa, and also later on in the Far East as well as India. It carefully parallels the genesis of various other Islamic scientific researches in its adaptation of foreign product as well as the amalgamation of the disparate aspects of that product to develop a scientific research with Islamic characteristics. ...
