    American Power Needs A Eurasian Reset to Combat Islamism
    William Holland

    Team Trump should begin by seeking normative diplomatic relations between Islamabad and New Delhi, and the framework harnessed should be East Africa’s Swahili contingent upon the Mughal from Kabul to Mumbai. If the Mughal emperors could connect East Africa to India, then American efforts should seek identical aims in state formation throughout the Indo-Pacific, for civil society remains the last bulwark against the vicious wiles of Islamism....

    Why Jordan King’s India Visit Is Significant for Promoting the Amman Message of Non-Takfiri Islam in India?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    That India’s religious plurality will be highlighted in this event as key to success in mitigating the influence of extremist Islamist groups such as ISIS and al-Qaeda is pertinent. Undeniably, only in the pluralistic ethos of the inclusivist Indian polity, the Vedic tradition, Gnosis of Gautam Buddha, Non-Violence of Mahavir Jain, Sikh teaching of the Devine Unity as well as the Monotheism of the Semitic religions are brought together. This is the land where Islam arrived in the very age of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and as recorded in history, the first mosque had been built in Kerala at that time. Thus, India’s ancient cultural and civilisational force has great potentials stemming from its inclusive religious traditions, to curb extremist thoughts and hardcore philosophies of all kinds…..

[What have you done now?]” “As if I am responsible!” When I asked Raffat why he gets into physical fights instead of complaining to the school authorities, he says that there is no point in trying to reason away the unreasonable. “If they want to fight, we cannot shy away!” said the visibly upset young man....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad
    '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....
