    Do Any of Those Shouting Hoarse Are Familiar with What Goes On In a Darul Qaza

    While I can understand the protests by the Hindutva brigade, whose primary aim is to demonise Islam, I fail to grasp why a group which calls itself “Muslims for Secular Democracy” jumped on to this bandwagon. Theirs seems to be a case of “running with the hare and hunting with the hounds”....

    Why Muslims Believe the Ten Commandments Are Very Islamic
    Ejaz Naqvi

    The Ten Commandments appear twice in the Torah-in the books of Exodus and Deuteronomy. It is important to point out that there are no universally accepted parallels in Islam to the Ten Commandments and this is but one view of a set of Commandments in the Qur’an. Just like the Hebrew Bible, the Qur’an does not limit the Commandments to ten. Like the Hebrew Bible, there are numerous additional Commandments that are spread throughout the Qur’an....

    As Pakistan braces for the next phase in its polity, there are lessons to be learnt from countries like India and the US where fear of change has led to the emergence of similar ‘strongman’ leadership. Those who voted for Narendra Modi or Donald Trump are not all bigots, misogynists or racists. Many are just ordinary people desperate for “better days” and to make their country “great again”. This is not too dissimilar from Imran’s supporters seeking “change”....

    The Journey of Faith to Perform Haj in Yesteryears
    Khalid Bashir Ahmad

    At one point in time, women in Kashmir were reluctant to submit their photographs for travel documents as taking a lady’s picture did not carry social approval. In 1937, Amir Gul Khan from Anantnag Tehsil submitted an application to the Governor of Kashmir seeking passport for his mother, Gul Bibi, wife of Sarwar Khan Pathan to go on Haj pilgrimage with two other women who had already obtained travel documents and were now "anxiously waiting" for her. Khan was asked to produce a photograph of his mother to complete the formalities. In response, he informed the Governor that her mother was a "Pardah Nasheen Aurat"...

    Nationality Law Is Murky When It Comes To the Palestinians Who Reside In the West Bank and Gaza

    Does this law not aim to prevent any possibility of national Palestinian fulfilment in the State of Israel as conceived by the right wing — namely, one Jewish state from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River, in which only Jews are permitted self-actualization and granted a national identity? It seems the only hope for the remaining millions of Palestinians to avoid losing what is left of their home is to find a Jewish mother who will agree to adopt them....

Maybe non-Muslims and non-Christians! Buhari is then vindicated. No citizen in Buhari’s government will claim to belong to any religion other than Islam and Christianity. On that note, the two bodies have, therefore, justified that Buhari is just, transparent and politically willed to take Nigeria to the Promised Land....

    न्यू एज इस्लाम के एडीटर जनाब सुलतान शाहीन ने प्राइम टाइम टीवी के बहस में एक और महत्वपूर्ण प्रश्न यह उठाया कि क्यों इस्लामी देश रोहंगिया मुसलामानों को पनाह देने के लिए आगे नहीं आ रहे हैं? उन्होंने कहा कि “सीरिया के शरणार्थियों को जर्मनी और दुसरे योरोपियन देशों ने पनाह दी है लेकिन मुस्लिम देश उन्हें शरणार्थी का स्थान देकर भी उनकी सहायता नहीं कर रहे हैंl यह वास्तव में वैश्विक मुस्लिम बिरादरी के लिए एक सामूहिक रूप से अपमान की बात है कि इस्लामी देश रोहंगिया शरणार्थियों से अपना मुंह मोड़ रहे हैं”l

    The lack of political wisdom in announcing it when Lok Sabha elections are nearing, has given yet another issue to BJP to divert attention, whose government has failed to keep its election promises and is faced with general discontent. The timing of the announcement is significant because earlier, just weeks before the UP assembly elections, the Board, in its press conference at the Press Club of Delhi, had announced a countrywide agitation beginning from Lucknow.  A sizable section of Muslims have been accusing the Board for providing fuel to the Sangh Parivar on such occasions....

    Objectively speaking, the definition of any concept pertaining to socio-cultural beliefs and practices is, in most cases, problematic and may have unsettling fallout for many. It will be like stating the obvious to say that Khatam-i-Nabuwwat acquired the centrality among rest of the postulates because of Ahmadi viewpoint which was not consistent with the mainstream Muslim belief. It will be pertinent to see it in juxtaposition to the Ahmadi belief regarding Khatam-i-Nabuwwat....

    The Islamic Jesus: This Christmas, Let Us Reflect On the Message of Prophet Jesus, Cherished and Venerated By both Muslims and Christians Alike

    Islam embraces the moral and ethical teachings of Moses and Jesus. Honesty, decency equality and dignity are central to even Prophet Muhammad's message. The basic principles of tolerance and treating others the way we wish to be treated are the foundations of both faiths, repeatedly emphasized in their sacred texts. Like all prophets, Jesus provided lessons to be learnt from his life and teachings. In fact his tradition of peace, compassion, love, gentleness and need to be revived more than ever….

    The Importance of Getting the Story Right on the Divine Plan Allah
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Javed Ghamidi gives the same reasons for extremism as I do but differently worded. According to Javed Ghamidi, the following are the reasons for extremism the belief that it is the rightful duty of all Muslims to mete out the punishment of death to all the Kafir – polytheists, disbelievers and the apostates.

    The belief that no one except the Muslims have a right to rule the world and the Muslims are therefore religiously bound to wage war to bring all non-Muslim countries under their rule. There should be only one government in the entire world and that should be the Islamic caliphate. The modern states are an embodiment of Kufr (disbelief), and therefore can have no place in Islam.....

    Islam's Relationship With The Rest Of The Word - The Current Problem Of Extremism In A False Ideology And The Antidote From An Authentic Understanding Of The Truly Humanistic Message Of The Quran
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    The Muslim of the Quran, is therefore simply anyone who submits to God (by whatever name), and is a doer of good deeds. There are therefore only two kinds of people - those who stand for justice and against oppression are the friends and helpers of God and the oppressors are the enemies of humanity and of God.  The finding of this paper needs to be leveraged to transform young minds to think in terms of objective attributes of people, rather than in terms of the narrow stereo types based on a person’s religious identity. Since our theology says otherwise, we need to work to change it according to the clear message of the Quran brought out in this paper to remove the ideological basis for extremism among the Muslims and to promote greater co-operation with all good people of other faiths….

    Hyderabad Sex Slavery: Till When Will Islam Keep Sanctioning Such Marriages?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The first and foremost problem with such a marriage is that in a majority of cases it is driven by acute poverty. When a family, too poor to feed itself and where a girl child is understood as a burden the very idea of marriage appears appealing to the family. At least it is one mouth less to feed since the girl becomes someone else’s burden and responsibility. Scores of marriages take place because of considerations of poverty and it happens amongst all communities. Because of poverty, neither the family nor the persons involved have any real choice in such marriages....

    Child Marriage among Indian Muslims: The Mullahs Have Brought Shame to the Muslim Community, Yet Again
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Even if we come to the conclusion that Prophet did in fact marry a minor, then a historical and contextual reading of this decision can always be done. What was right during the Prophet’s time is no longer valid. What was Sharia (the path) at the time of the Prophet is no longer the Sharia of the present. Contextualising the actions of the Prophet in its time is perhaps the only way out of the morass which we find ourselves in today. Rather than shying away from the problem, we must first have the courage to recognise it and then throw it open for debate. Pretending that everything is fine with Islam only obfuscates the problem and has already done irreparable harm to the community and the religion....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Madrasa students spend most of their day in rote memorization of the Qur’an in Arabic (this is not their native language, so few understand what they are reading) and interpreting the Hadith. Only theology is taught; there is no math, science, computer training, or secular history.34 The young men at these schools are drawn from the dire poor of the societies they come from, kept in self-contained worlds that are isolated from outside influences, and indoctrinated with a powerful, not-so-academic radical message: their highest honor and duty is to wage jihad to defend Islam from its attackers, and the United States is the chief enemy of Islam…..

    Sufism: A Search for Freedom and Self-Authenticity
    Prof. Henry Francis B. Espiritu, New Age Islam

    As I step-up and deepen my readings on Islamic spirituality, I sensed that Sufism as a philosophy and as a movement has strong affinity with those movements that seek human authenticity and freedom: say for example the hippie movements, the counter-culture, the Gypsy lifestyle, and the anti-establishment movements in the 1960s and the 1970s. I really feel that there is a strong similarity between the aspirations of the Sufis of Islam and the hippies and the anti-establishment movements concerning the human person’s freedom and authenticity to choose for himself how to live one’s life in the midst of the nauseating hegemony of the society that forces us into unthinking conformity to conventional conditioning and tyranny of the majority opinion on how to live one’s life.

The Chinese are concerned about their pipeline which will run through the Rakhine state. The Indians are concerned about strategic factors in the north eastern states. Both therefore do not want to annoy the military junta of Myanmar and want them at their side.

It also provides a platform for debate on contemporary concerns facing Muslims, such as religious extremism, terrorism, peace-making, tolerance, interfaith dialogue and inter-religious relations with other faith-based groups. It brings together reports, features, academic articles and commentaries from a range of academic and journalistic sources, as well as original scholarship on Muslim affairs by experts in Islamic studies....

    There is therefore a vast gulf which is unbridgeable, unless the Muslims believe in the whole of the Quran, and discard the secondary sources for an explanation of the Book. “And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in the Book; the whole of it is from our Lord:" and none will grasp the Message except men of understanding”. There appear to be very few people of understanding across the spectrum of the “believers” and the “disbelievers”, providing proof thereby, that the playing field is very level indeed for all, and there is little difference among the people, except their deeds. False beliefs are common to all people, and the “believers” equally blaspheme God, their Prophet and their Book with their false beliefs....

    Contesting the Political Islamist Theology: Untenable Theological Justifications For The Corruption, Purge And Religious Persecution In Turkey
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The pro-government political theologians in Muslim countries have propounded a complete political theology—an exclusivist and totalitarian theology which undermines the democratic, moderate and progressive thoughts flourishing in the liberal Muslim minds. Regrettably, many religionists in those countries are falling prey to this unceasing ideology endangering their lives and stigmatising the religion in general. Unless this retrogressive theology of political hue is contested, there will be no way forward to progressive thinking in Islam in the 21st century. It actually poses a direct ideological threat to the rich spiritual traditions—unity of existence, pluralism and multiculturalism—that Muslims have inherited in various countries.

    Why the Mindless Ritual of Male Circumcision Should be Done Away With
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    It is considered a Sunna but then there is no evidence to suggest that the Prophet himself was circumcised. There is a fantastic Hadis which says that he was born circumcised but then again it is not the same thing as saying that he underwent circumcision. In short, there is no religious justification also for this practice to continue amongst the Muslims. If God says that he has made man perfect and that bodily integrity should not be harmed even after one’s death, then why are Muslim hell bent to make modifications in God’s plan? Isn’t it playing with the divinity to cut a part of human body which is part of the original design of God?...

Even as it loses territory in Iraq and Syria, its propaganda units are trying to create new generations of religious extremists, much as they have done in Europe. Decrying IS as a rogue movement is insufficient to reverse this trend. It is also futile to claim that IS has nothing to do with Islam because its leadership carefully quotes supportive holy doctrines to justify every major atrocity....

    Instances like Hadiya will keep repeating themselves. And no community is free from blame of putting restrictions on movement of girls, curbing their sexuality and denying their choice of love and marriage. Caste and religious groups have all been guilty of stultifying women because they think that women become ‘astray’ and bring shame to the community and family. The honour killings witnessed in many parts of the country, and those that go unreported emanate from the same problem: viewing women as commodities and as the repository of shame. So while honour resides among men, shame resides in women....

    'Make Revolutionary Changes in the Islamic Theology of Consensus to Fight Jihadism': Sultan Shahin Asks Muslim Nations at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Sixteen years after 9/11, the issue of Jihadi terrorism has become even more complex and widespread.

    First, though Jihadism is a violent offshoot of Wahhabism and Salafism, the international community has allowed the fountainhead of Wahhabi/Salafi ideology to continue to spend tens of billions of dollars to Wahhabise the world Muslim community.

    Second, we recently saw with horror, but without any protest from the international community, the sight of a UN-designated terrorist, with a ten-million-dollar bounty on his head, launch a political party and nominate another US-designated terrorist to contest democratic elections in Pakistan. Apparently, some countries can ignore UN directives with impunity.

    Third, the Muslim community has failed to grasp that Jihadism spread so rapidly around the world because at its core it is not very different from the theology of consensus that informs the religious beliefs and practices of all Muslim sects. That is why Jihadis are not impressed when we Muslims either proclaim that Islam is a religion of peace and pluralism or when we try to wash our hands off Jihadism by claiming that it has nothing to do with Islam. If we Muslims want to live as honourable citizens in the 21st century’s globalised world, we must rethink our consensus theology in all its dimensions and make revolutionary changes to bring it in line with the needs of present times....
