    France’s Fight Against Islamic Radicalization: The Writing Is Still on the Wall

    Growing Muslim radicalization has also been reflected in the increasing number of incidents of violent anti-Semitism in France. The French authorities and media preferred, at first, to view the crimes as stemming from socioeconomic factors rather than from Islamic radicalization. They occasionally presented or even justified the increase in anti-Semitic violence as a product of the Muslims’ identification with the Palestinians. It seems that the Laïcité principle created a barrier that prevented an examination into the intensification of anti-Semitic violence as a result of radicalization and religious incitement.

    Isolation from the mainstream has extracted a price in the general well-being of immigrants, particularly for Pakistan-origin Brits. Muslim school students — of which a full 40 per cent are Pakistanis — have been documented as underachievers. Muhammad Anwar, a social scientist and author of British Muslims and State Policies argues that Pakistani-Brits generally have education achievement levels lying at the low end of all ethnic minorities in Britain.

    The SC’s new verdict that matrimonial issues fall in the realm of civil law and need not be resolved by criminal law is quite rational. But should not the ideology be uniformly applicable to such issues for all sections of citizens? By this yardstick, should not the Triple Divorce Ordinance now under challenge in the court fall flat? Is the country’s ever-angry law minister listening?

    Growing trend of antisemitism in the West is the preliminary process of an Islamic conquest
    Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury

    When we are thinking, following the fall of Islamic State’s from Iraq that this monstrous Jihadist outfit has come to a point of being extinct, we possibly are failing to understand or ignoring series of disturbing news on the rise of radical Islam in the West. Deceiving our eyes, a silent ‘conquest’ of radical Islam is continuing in the US, United Kingdom and some of the European nations. It certainly is a matter of grave concern. Radical Islam is expanding fast in United Kingdom enjoying patronization of major political force like Labour Party. The way it is expanding, I am afraid, within the span of 20-30 years, United Kingdom will turn into Islamic Kingdom. Pro Al Qaeda and ISIS Muslims are very actively polluting the British society under direct patronization and funding of some Arab nations....

    MEMRI Scholar Tufail Ahmad Drafts 'The Muslim Family Reforms Bill, 2018' To Address Religious And Legal Issues Affecting Muslim Families In India
    Tufail Ahmad

    The only valid argument from the government is: The instant triple Talaq was an act of psychological cruelty to Muslim wives. In such a case, it could have introduced a one-sentence amendment in the Domestic Violence Act of 2005, making it an act of mental cruelty. But the government is arguing before the public that its bill is a piece of reform. Leading Muslim lawmakers from the ruling party, such as India's Junior Minister for External Affairs M.J. Akbar, deliver speeches, even inside the parliament, about Muslim women's struggle for rights, but they deliberately avoid discussing the government's bill and its shortcomings...

    Terrorism is a form of political-social warfare. Since the war has been the most important element of this form since the beginning, so terrorism in the long-term globalization can be considered the second most important form of this war. The concept of terrorism will become broader and deeper due to the technically influenced global factors. Although there are many historical examples of the terrorist events, the modern form of terrorism emerged in the mid-nineteenth century....

    Making Sense of Afrazul’s Lynching

    But in a context where Muslim lives have become precarious for the precise reason of being Muslim; then the protest against Afrazul’s killing should have made this statement boldly. In trying a balancing act, these protests have only reduced the depraved ideological gravity of this targeted killing. It was also a little rich that some of these protests were organised by those who had defended the killings of Muslims in Nandigram and Singur. If Hindu nationalism has to resurrect itself on dismembered bodies of Muslims, then it is Muslims themselves who should be at the forefront of protesting against this barbaric dystopia for it is the Muslim alone who can feel the pain of being Muslim in India today. ...

    As commentators have pointed out, the prince should have started with the chief ideologue of the Saudi monarchy: Mohammad Ibn -e-Abdul Wahhab. It is Wahhabism and the theology of Abdul Wahhab's ideological mentor Ibn Taimiyya which is responsible for much which is wrong with the Saudi society today. Their teachings being patronised by the House of Saud has led to the repressions of women and the minority Shia population within Saudi Arabia. Moreover, it is the same ideology which has produced so many terrorists not just within the Saudi society but all over the world. Not content with being so backward and medieval in terms of their religious outlook, the Saudis exported this nefarious ideology to other parts of the world,...

    Celebration of Anmbia’s Birthday
    Rashid Samnakay, New Age Islam

    The sermons from the Muslim pulpits are often heard forbidding Muslim from associating with Christmas celebrations and offering greetings of the season, on the grounds that Christians worship Jesus. So what does that matters to the others? It would be denying the fact that in some Muslim communities personality cultism of the Nabi Muhammad is rife and Eid Milad un Nabi is a good example of that cultism in some gatherings. The wording of the sing songs – Na’ts and Qawwalis invoking the Nabi to help and assist are as close as one can get to placing him next to God and hence polytheism -shirk. No wonder that many scholars declare such “birthday celebration” as Bid’ah.....

    Tolerance and Cordiality in Muslim-Sikh Relations in Mughal India: A Historical Appraisal
    Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu, New Age Islam

    Warfare in the perspective of Islam and Sikhism is only utilized as the last resort for the defensive protection of the oppressed from the arrogant oppressors. Both religions believe that the sword is never intended for offensive or aggressive warfare. Defence for the rights and dignity of the human person is the only reason for drawing the sword—and only as the last recourse. Islam and Sikhism do not condone force and compulsion—both faiths stand for peace, tolerance, and amity. Islam however provides for the just defence of one’s’ faith, life, and property. In the same vein, the sixth Guru, Hargobind and tenth Guru, Gobind Singh (as the last preceptor of Sikh lineage of spiritual masters) provided for defensive struggle against oppression (but not aggressive war) in their act of arming the Sikhs with sword....

    And the Taj Stands Tall
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    It is true that the Taj was worked upon by Indian labourers, that it is they who built the magnificent structure. It is also possible to look at the monument as an exercise in wasteful expenditure, like Aurangzeb did. But to simply criticise it because Muslims built it is nothing but silly. The Taj is a symbol of love since centuries. The Mughal discourse and subsequent history writing have made this object of love into the common-sense of Indian people. Hindus and Muslims both look up to it as the monument dedicated to love. It is not surprising therefore that there was backlash from within the Hindus which forced Yogi to pick up a broom and run to the service of Taj. That is called the triumph of hegemony and the Hindu Right will be advised to think hard before they renege on the pledge that UP Chief Minister gave while speaking on the Taj.

    Tellingly, Egypt is the first Muslim country which has mulled down the entire corpus of extremist Islamist literature in the country’s religious and educational centres. It has literally banned the extremist thoughts from flourishing in the new Egyptian generation’s minds. Hasan al-Banna, Sayyid Qutub, Maulana Maududi and almost all those who expounded upon the political Islamist theologies in their books have been ousted from the universities and schools. In his piece in The Times of India, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi claimed that Egypt has been at the forefront in the counter-terror mission….

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    The word “jihad” means “struggle” or “striving” (in the way of God) or to work for a noble cause with determination; it does not mean “holy war” Unlike its medieval Christian counterpart term, “crusade” (“war for the cross”), however, the term jihad for Muslims has retained its religious and military connotation into modern times. The word jihad has appeared widely in the Western news media following the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, but the true meaning of this term in the Islamic world is still not well understood by non-Muslims….

Now the question arises; how to fight this threat as an ideology, behaviour and ground reality? It is not impossible to curb this threat. What we need to do is analyse this phenomenon. In this regard we can also benefit from the so-far researched materials on this cancer.
