    Healing Of the Wounds of 26/11 Will Begin with Forgiveness
    Roger Gabriel

    One billion people, that’s the population of India. For thousands of years, India has led the world in many ways, particularly spiritual. Now, perhaps, is India’s greatest opportunity. If the whole Indian population changed its thoughts, words and deeds to reflect love, understanding and compassion, even for one day, we could just maybe change the world — forever...

    One cannot forget the brilliant Bhajans (devotional songs) sung by Mohammad Rafi, Man Tarpat Hari Darshna Ko Aaj (Baiju Bawara) or ‘Insaf Ka Mandir Hai Ye (Amar). There is a long list of these inter religious cultural expressions. The contributions of Ustad Bismillah Khan, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan match those of Ravi Shanker and Shiv Kumar Sharma to give just one example. In current times music maestro A R Rahman, on one side is composing ‘Piya Haji Ali’ and on the other is composing ‘Shantakaram Bhujanagshayanam’....

    Guru Nanak Was a True Devotee of God

    History, as a subject, is not taught in Pakistan. What is taught instead is an ideological course, designed to churn out students who parrot the narrative of the state. What that means is that, one after another, there have been generations of students in the country who have had no exposure to non-Muslim history or non-Muslim narrative of history. ...

    Muslims Are Caught Between Soft Hindutva and Hard Hindutva
    Vandita Mishra

    In the state where the lynching of Pehlu Khan in Alwar in April last year by a mob that accused him of “cow smuggling” sparked nation-wide outrage, and the police investigation subsequently cleared six men Khan had named as his assailants in his dying declaration, and where the same crime stalks more victims, you hear the disclaimer over and over again: Rajasthan does not have a communal problem, they say, everything is fine here between Hindus and Muslims....

    Pakistan Was Created As an Ideological Islamic State Is a Fiction That Has No Roots in Reality
    Yasser Latif Hamdani

    It certainly has nothing to do with Jinnah, whose one major consistent theme was the unfettered march of humanity — something that he harked back to throughout his life in a multitude of his speeches. He did not believe for example that any one generation could bind the next for all times to come. This was the essence of Jinnah’s political thought — that nothing is static in politics and that the march of humanity will not be thwarted. A militarised Pakistani state at odds with its neighbour and non-identical fraternal twin was not what Jinnah had in mind....

    دراصل جب حضورﷺ کے زمانے میں کثرتِ طلاق اور طلاق دینے میں جلد بازی کی وجہ سے صورت حال سنگین ہوگئی تو کثرت سے حلالہ کے واقعات پیش آنے لگے۔ کسی نے کسی کو جلد بازی میں طلاق مغلظہ د یدی پھر پچھتاوا ہوا تو اپنے کسی دوست یا سگے بھائی سے اپنی مطلقہ بیوی کا نکاح اس نیت یا اس شرط کے ساتھ کرادیا کہ ایک دور اتیں گذارنے کے بعد وہ اس کو طلاق دے کر اس کے لئے حلال کردے۔ یہ قرآن کی روح کے بالکل منافی تھا۔ اس پر حضورﷺ نے سخت ناپسندیدگی کا اظہار کرتے ہوئے فرمایا کہ ایسا کرنے والے اور کروانے والے دونوں پر خدا کی لعنت ہے۔

    The history of Islam on the Horn of Africa dates back 1400 years. It came from the Arabian Peninsula through migration and trade, mainly from Yemen and Oman. In Somalia, during the 14th century many Somalis converted to Islam and gradually Islam became the dominant religion. Today, almost 100 percent of Somalis are Sunni Muslim and largely adhere to a Shafi'i version of the faith....

    Humanity’s ‘Dirty Little Secret’: Starving, Enslaving, Raping, Torturing and Killing our Children
    Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

    Every day, according to some estimates, human adults kill 50,000 of our children. The true figure is probably significantly higher. We kill children in wars. See, for example, ‘Scourging Yemen’. We kill them with drones. We kill them in our homes and on the street. We shoot them at school. We also kill children in vast numbers by starving them to death, depriving them of clean drinking water, denying them medicines…

    Isis repeatedly focuses on misinterpreting Islam for justifying suicide bombing but we Muslims do not concentrate on rebutting their falsehood or misrepresentation of Islam. Except for NewAgeIslam.com, such an attempt is not being made anywhere else in a systematic and organised manner. Suicide bombing is extremely forbidden in Islam in all cases, even in wartime. The Quran and Sunnah have asked the people not to go for suicide attacks. Now we will have to tell the gullible Muslims who are trapped or brainwashed for suicide bombing that this act is absolutely forbidden....

    Understanding Pranab Mukherjee’s Speech as an Answer to Mohan Bhagwat is Wrong
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The speeches of Bhagwat and Mukherjee go a long way to show that there is a consensus on the question of nationalism between these two political formations. The difference is just about shades rather than of type. Thus the TV debates and the newspaper columns which seek to point out their essential difference is definitely out of proportion and a lazy reading of their viewpoints. More fundamentally, this laziness is also because of the assumptions of the liberal Hindu historiography itself. Is it simply a matter of coincidence that the RSS can switch between an Indira Gandhi and Modi with such ease? After all, Indira was hailed as the Durga by none other than the RSS and the congress had no objection at that time....

    Islamic Concept of Tolerance—an Essential Prerequisite for Peaceful Coexistence
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    Tolerance in Islam, rightly understood, is patience toward a practice or opinion one disapproves of. This understanding may come as a surprise to many people who interpret tolerance simply as a synonym for the words ‘acceptance’ or ‘agreement’. Islamic tolerance entails disagreement yet a firm moral commitment to the decent treatment of the person with whom one disagrees. So tolerance in Islam can be understood as a patient forbearance against something which is disliked or disapproved of....

    The Kathua Rape-And-Murder Case: Why See It Through The Prism Of Religion?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    In fact, the brutal rape and murder of the 8-year-old Asifa Bano in Kathua was a premeditated crime to particularly target and terrorize the Bakarwal ethnic group. It was different from most rape cases in India, but quite identical to what the ISIS did with the young Yazdi girls in Iraq and Syria to terrorize the entire Yazdi community in their previously occupied territories. Thus, India witnessed first of its kind rape which was viciously planned as a tool of war to subjugate an ethnic group in Kashmir....

    If we Muslims desire the full protection of the human rights for the world’s Muslim minorities as an ‘Ummah’, we must ensure that the non-Muslim citizens living in the Muslim majority countries are accorded the same rights and privileges that we Muslims seek to achieve in the non-Muslim nations. In order to achieve this, I would like to offer concrete solutions and final recommendations derived from the Madina Charter of Human Rights (Misaq-e-Madina)—the first ever written constitution of the world formulated by the Muhammad (peace be upon him)……

    The Enlightening Commentary on the War Related Quranic Verses- Part 2
    Ghulam Ghaus Siddiqi, New Age Islam

    Having taken into account the cause of revelation [shan e nuzul] and context of the afore-mentioned Quranic verse 22:39, we need to go forward to tackle the most important issue. The modern terrorist organizations are applying the Quranic verses and ahadith to implement the anti-Shariat matters, that is, to implement the forbidden acts. There is no doubt that we find numerous Quranic verses and ahadith which deal with the war-related situations. However it should also be noted that if we gather all the Quranic verses and ahadith together and apply the right methodological approaches in order to understand the purpose of Islam, we will indeed find, with the blessing of Allah Almighty, that Islam aims merely at eliminating oppression, establishing peace, justice and tranquillity....

    This fatwa is against the spirit of the Quran that enjoins all the Muslims irrespective of their sectarian beliefs to remain united and not to promote discord and disunity among themselves. About the food to be taken by Muslims, the Quran has given out clear injunctions. It has made clear to the Muslims what food is Haram or Halal that is, permissible and non-permissible. The Quran has declared the food served by even Ahl-e-Kitab to be Halal or permissible to Muslims. One verse of the Quran says thus:

    “This day are (all) good things made lawful for you. The food of those who have received the Scripture is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them.”)….

    Jihadist Terrorists Can’t Justify Their Call to Migration

    The Jihadist terrorists dominantly belong to Wahhabism and hence they call their Wahhabi followers to migrate like the early Emigrants mentioned in the Quranic verse 8:72 and fight against those who they think are Kuffar and non-Wahhabi Muslims. Concerning this verse in today’s context some questions arise. Are today’s Muslims whom they are calling to migrate identical to the early Emigrants? Is it allowed for them to migrate from a country which grants security and religious freedom to them?  Associating the condition of today’s Muslims to that of the early Emigrants mentioned in 8:72 is extremely injustice and violation of the Quran....

The Psalms, the Torah, the Bible and the oldest scriptures of the world --- the Vedas – sing hosanna to the Divine Creator. The tradition of uttering the name of God is also found in other religions like Manichaeism which was in vogue in Iran in the ancient times. The prophet of Manichaeism was Mani. Many modern folk religions like Sikhism, Nath Panth, Kabir Panth and Vaishnavism etc give importance to remembrance of God, rather remembrance and utterance of the name of God forms the basic practice of these religions....
