    Are We Really Prepared For A Uniform Civil Code?
    Faizan Mustafa

    It is an erroneous perception that we have different personal laws because of religious diversity. As a matter of fact, law may differ from state to state. It appears that the framers of the Constitution did not intend total uniformity in the sense of one law for the whole country, because the power to legislate in respect of personal laws has been given to both Parliament as well as state assemblies. ...

    Where Is The International Outcry?
    Mahmood Hasan

    Myanmar is already at war with more than a dozen insurgent groups along its borders. But the emergence of ARSA will be a game-changer for Myanmar. Islamic militants from al-Qaeda, ISIS and other jihadi outfits will most likely infiltrate ARSA and pose serious threats to Myanmar's security. ARSA's cross-border activities may also pose a security threat to Bangladesh. Myanmar's air force helicopters have already violated Bangladesh's airspace several times during the past weeks. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres rightly warned that ethnic cleansing of Rohingyas could lead to regional destabilisation.

    Why are Islamic countries not coming forward to take Rohingyas?   اسلامی ممالک روہنگیا مسلمانوں کی مدد کے لئے کیوں آگے نہیں آ رہے ہیں؟ کیا انسانی حقوق صرف مسلمانوں کے لئے ہیں؟
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    ٹائمز ناؤ Times Now (روہنگیا بحث، 17/9/9) میں ایک حالیہ مباحثے میں نیو ایج اسلام کے فاؤنڈنگ ایڈیٹر جناب سلطان شاہین نے پینل کے مسلم شرکاء کے سامنے ایک انتہائی اہم اور ضروری سوال یہ پیش کیا کہ جب پاکستان، بنگلہ دیش، انڈونیشیا، ملیشیا، سعودی عرب اور مصر جیسے نام نہاد اسلامی ممالک اور مسلم دنیا کے دیگر حصوں میں مذہبی اقلیتوں کے حقوں کو مکمل طور پر پامال کیا جاتا ہے تو ہندوستان کے مسلم رہنما خاموش تماشائی کیوں بنے رہتے ہیں؟ مثال کے طور پر، انہوں نے اس بات کی نشاندہی کی کہ ہر سال ہزاروں ہندو لڑکیوں کو اغوا کیا جاتا ہے، انہیں زبردستی اسلام قبول کروایا جاتا ہے کیا اور ان کے اغوا کار ان کے ساتھ نکاح کے نام پر عصمت دری کرتے ہیں۔ ان سب باتوں پر ان ہندوستانی مسلمانوں کے درمیان کوئی غصہ کیوں نہیں پھوٹتا جب وہ بجا طور پر ہندوستان اور دوسری جگہوں پر مسلمانوں کے قتل عام اور ان پر تشدد کے دیگر واقعات کے خلاف صدائے احتجاج بلند کرتے ہیں۔

    Why the AIMPLB Refuses to Learn Any Lessons
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Despite the SC verdict, the AIMPLB still clings to its view that though triple talaq is sinful but yet it is valid in the eyes of Islamic law. None other than Mahmood Madani endorsed such a view soon after the verdict. Thus it is clear that the AIMPLB does not take even the Supreme Court and its decision seriously and opens itself to the charge that actually it does not believe in India’s constitutional democracy. Had there been a different political climate, the AIMPLB would surely have filed for a review petition. They have themselves argued that since the judge has changed, filing a review petition might throw up other practices like polygamy, nikah halala, etc. into the limelight and they fear that there might be another adverse ruling for them….

    Jinnah, Rohingyas and Pakistan

    The case of the Rohingya has always been that they should be given equal rights as citizens of Burma. To suggest that they might have exercised their right to self determination in 1947 along with Pakistan is an absurd claim. If some members of the Rohingya community had raised this possibility, it was promptly shot down and rightly so by Jinnah and the All India Muslim League. And it certainly cannot be held against the Rohingya that some of their forbears might have wanted such a solution.

    Islam’s Existential Crisis: Tolerance Is Needed to Stop It from Splintering into Separate Sectarian Boxes
    Hasan Suroor

    What I find extraordinary is the Muslim indifference towards Islam’s future, as if they couldn’t care less. A standard smug reaction is that all religions, notably Christianity, have gone through upheavals and emerged stronger. So will Islam; a “new” Islam fit for the 21st century will emerge from the debris of the old.

    The Qur'an Does Not Mandate Hijab
    Ibrahim B. Syed, New Age Islam

    Some Muslim scholars are under the impression that the Arab women used to roam around with their head and bosoms totally uncovered; and the Qur’anic verse (24:31) instructed them to pull their ‘Khimar’ from their back onto their exposed bosoms. This assumption is correct as it is based on historical facts....

    To Counter Jihadism, Teach Need-Blind Subjects to Muslim Children
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    Such a strategy must do the following: all madrasas and mosques should be registered and their finances audited by local officials, a task unachievable if the same is not done for churches; madrasa syllabi should be reformed to include – in addition to the teachings of the Quran, Hadiths and Islamic Studies – English and material sciences as well as a primer on need-blind subjects like liberal arts from the primary standards....

    A Definition of Muslim Fundamentalists and Fundamentalism
    T.O. Shanavas, New Age Islam

    Sharia is central to Islamic faith. It is the Divine Law of Guidance for personal and public behaviour of Muslims, and justice to humanity. Justice is one word in Islam that wraps balance, harmony, fairness, mercy and equity together for the society to function cohesively, where none has live in fear of the other but God. In its absence, humanity will degenerate into a dysfunctional society....

The Quran considers all adherents of other divine religions as Muslim (Al-Baqarah, 136; Al-i-Imran, 84). In the Quran’s view all divine religions are one and the same, but depending on their era had different approaches and laws (Al-Ma’idah, 45-49). It also states that (Al-Hajj, 34, 67) God gave different rites for different religions....

    Why Pan-Islamism Is the Biggest Roadblock for Muslims' Integration with Modernity

    Pan-Islamism went through its various stages, starting from the early days of Islam as a ''religious concept'' and moved on to become a ''modern political ideology'' in the 1860s and the 1870s at the height of European Colonialism when Turkish intellectuals began discussing and writing about it as a way to save the crumbling Ottoman Empire...

    Rohingya Muslim Refugees Could Exacerbate the Kashmir Problem

    In April 2013, U.S.-based Human Rights Watch released a 153-page report in which it accused the Burmese authorities and the local armed groups of committing "crimes against humanity in a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Rohingya Muslims" since June 2012.On December 8 this year, Vijay Nambiar, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary-General on Myanmar, urgedAung San Suu Kyi –  the Nobel peace prize winner and head of the Burmese government – "to listen to her inner voice and speak directly to the people of Myanmar, asking them to rise above their ethnic, religious and other differences."....

    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    There are many people who show an unflinching determination to disregard half of the relevant evidence! In Psychology this is called cognitive bias where we pay attention only to facts that support our prejudices. Uncomfortable evidence that contradicts our theory causes what is called cognitive dissonance. An honest way of dealing with cognitive dissonance is to revise our opinion/theory taking the full facts of the case into consideration. Dishonest ways are by way of discounting, falsifying, or by ignoring altogether the evidence that does not suit our purpose.....

    Uniform Civil Code or Islamic Reform?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    The position of AIMPLB is only furthering the agenda of the BJP. If the BJP wants to portray the Muslims as the regressive minority, the AIMPLB is more than willing to act like one. By not engaging with the questionnaire of the law commission, it does not realise that it is sending a wrong message to other communities that Muslims remain committed to be wedded to the norms of a bygone era and refuse to come out of it. Granted that BJP might be willing to polarise society for electoral purposes, granted that it has a hidden agenda; ....
