    Interfaith Dialogue

    Ahmad Riza Khan and the Question of Religious Pluralism
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Barelwi Islam, not just in India but the whole of South Asia has been understood as the best antidote to radical/Deobandi Islam. This is not just true of policy level interventions but also at the level of popular consciousness. Barelwis, thought of as the Sufi shrine-going population of Muslims, are said to be tolerant or moderate as compared to other Muslims such as the Deobandis or the Ahl-e-Hadis who shun going to shrines. The shrine, and rightly so, is considered as a more inclusive space where distinctions between religions and sometimes even gender is blurred. Thus we have shrines where both the Muslims and Hindus make it a point to visit....

    Tablighi Jamaat Banned From Preaching Deobandi Sectarianism on Pakistan University Campuses
    Muhammad Amir Rana

    The possibility of Tableeghi Jamaat-associated youth moving towards extremism is also there. Many of those associated with jihad and violent sectarian groups have been linked to it at certain times. The Tableeghi Jamaat attracts the youth and brings them to the mosque, but it cannot control them. In the mosque, people associated with jihad and sectarian groups are also present.....

    Banning the Burqa: Why More Countries Are Outlawing the Full-Face Veil

    Ultra-austere forms of Islam, in particular the Wahhabist version, sprung up in sub-Saharan Africa only in the past few decades, as traders and students travelled to the Gulf and Saudi Arabia poured money into Islamist institutes and mosques. Though a small minority, fundamentalists are growing in number. A tenth of Muslims in Cameroon may now be Wahhabists. Sufis in Chad fear they will soon be outnumbered by them....

    Ali Nadwi and the Theology of Anti-Pluralism
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    Nadwi is at pains to emphasize the loyalty and devotion of India’s Muslims to the nation-state as well as the need for communal harmony between Muslims and Hindus. But this harmony is predicated not on similarities between the two communities, still less on a religious and cultural symbiosis; it is predicated rather on a recognition of their distinct, immutable identities. Such a methodology hardly augurs well for a composite living together of Hindus and Muslims. Rather, in Nadwi, what we get is a distinct politics of anti-pluralism predicated on a disdain for Hindus and an unquestioning superiority in all things Arab and Islamic. .....

    Women Qazis Is a Step towards Righting the Sharia Balance
    Danish Raza

    Fatwas (edicts) issued by Prophet Muhammad’s wife Hazrat Ayesha can be compiled into many volumes. Many renowned male scholars of that time used to seek her opinion in crucial matters. Other women of that era who were renowned experts in Islamic jurisprudence included Umme Salma, Safia, Hafsa, Umme-Habiba and Juwaria, among others. Stories about the lives of the earliest Muslims tell of women teaching men, playing a role in correcting social conflicts, running businesses and even participating in wars......

    The Ideology of Exodus – The Fleeing of Hindus from Kairana
    Tufail Ahmad, New Age Islam

    According to a report by Zee News, which brought the issue before the nation, the town of Kairana had 30 percent Hindus and 68 percent Muslim population as per 2011 census. However, the Hindu population has declined to eight percent in 2016 while the Muslim population has risen to 92 percent from 68 percent in just about six years, as estimated by local officials. Kairana is not an isolated case. There are areas in India which are called "mini Pakistan" – not by Hindus.

    Islamic Society

    The religious followers’ knowledge seems to be acquired from hearsay. As the nation is mainly of Sunni factions, as the name Sunni suggests to mean--جو سُن سُن کر مُسلمان ہوے. It must be so, and so the chopped hand becomes another religious symbol. Based on general observation and listening to sermons, it is the Apocrypha which is quoted from the pulpits profusely, but hardly ever the original Book Quran.....

    Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa’s Curriculum: Most Textbooks Ignore the Existence and Role of Minorities, And Non-Muslim Heroes
    Imtiaz Gul

    The English textbook for class 10 includes Islamic religious material, which is already a part of the Islamiyat textbooks. This amounts to unnecessary repetition for Muslim students and a forced study of Islam for non-Muslims. Most textbooks ignore or underplay the existence and role of minorities, and non-Muslim heroes and eminent personalities....

    Islam and Spiritualism

    Sufism with its message of universal love has the capacity to change minds and hearts. The history of Sufism in India, and the continuing traditions have something to offer the world. People of all faiths, creed, class and backgrounds visit dargahs. This represents Sufism's true universal message of brotherhood. Traditions at dargahs in India tell the story of the country's composite culture, where many of the customs are indigenous and local in nature.

    Why Indians Are Challenging Muslim Divorce Laws
    Niharika Mandhana

    The validity of personal laws rooted in religious beliefs – and the judiciary’s right to intervene – has long been a contentious issue in India. In the landmark Shah Bano case in 1985, the Supreme Court ordered the husband of 62-year-old Shah Bano Begum to give his divorced wife continual alimony when Sharia, or Islamic religious law, allowed the discontinuation of alimony three months after their split.....

    Book Review: A Hizmet Approach to Rooting out Violent Extremism

    “A Hizmet Approach to Rooting out Violent Extremism” by Ozcan Keles and Ismail Mesut Sezgin produces a case study in this context. It provides a critical and detailed analysis of the Hizmet’s refutations of the ideological, theological and text-based rhetoric of the violent extremism, which could be aptly termed ‘radical jihadism’….

    Sultan Shahin, Not Owaisi, Represents India’s Muslims
    Madhav Nalapat

    The consequence of such selectivity has been that non-Muslim elements in societies everywhere believe that it is individuals of the persuasion of Asaduddin Owaisi rather than Sultan Shahin, of Imam Bukhari rather than the Diwan Saheb of Ajmer Dargah, who most accurately represents the Muslim community. ...

     If Muslim society is undergoing the trauma of some within it getting seduced by Wahhabism, part of the fault rests in the manner in which non-Muslims have dealt with the fringe in the Muslim community as being the only genuine representatives of a community that is as moderate and as modern as are Christians, Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs in India. The next time there is a debate on national television or a delegation gets invited for a dialogue with a policymaker, hopefully it will be the Sultan Shahins and the Diwan Sahebs who are given priority over fringe co-religionists, the way it is with all other communities in India.

    I Fight Petrodollar Islam: Sultan Shahin
    Sultan Shahin, Editor, New Age Islam

    In a tiny room in East Delhi’s Patparganj, a man spends most of his waking hours at his computer. This passion may be something he shares with millions, but Sultan Shahin is no ordinary web addict. Behind his constant surfing, writing and posting pieces on his website called newageislam.com is a steadfast purpose: to reclaim Islam from the clutches of jihadists and petrodollar-funded Salafist-Wahhabis. Shahin, who ideologically fights the religious right — the tyrannical Taliban and its sympathisers as well as the many Islamic supremacists who claim that Islam alone is Allah’s chosen path to paradise — is a spirited web warrior. “My fight is against petrodollar Islam,” he declares.

    “I am creating a forum that will lead us to the understanding of a pluralistic, inclusive, tolerant Islam.” And Islam, he adds, is not a new religion. “The Quran says this. It is a reiteration and revalidation of earlier religions,” he avers, seated at his study stacked with scholarly tomes, including several copies of the commentaries on the Quran. Anathema as this may be to fundamentalists, it’s won Shahin many followers. In the mere two years since the inception of newageislam.com, the website has 117,000 registered subscribers (subscription is free), claims its 60-year-old editor. Its daily newsletter, brought out by a skeletal staff of five, has carried debates on issues and personalities seldom talked about among mosque-going, visibly pious Muslims. So the Mumbai-based Muslim televangelist Dr Zakir Naik is slammed, not because he is allegedly funded by the petro-rich Saudi Sheikhs, but because he tries to establish the supremacy of Islam over all other religions. Niyaz Fatehpuri, a 20th-century Indian scholar and editor of Urdu periodical Nigaar, has become a much admired man on the website because of his rational, ingenious interpretation of Islamic principles. The website even follows the Urdu press, including Urdu dailies in Pakistan, and uploads the rational views in it, both in their original Urdu and English translations. ... Shahin later landed up in London as an editor of Asia Times, a weekly owned by one Arif Ali of Indian origin.

    A decade or so in England, he says, gave him great experience “as it exposed me to different strains of Islam and Muslims”. Like, once at a friend’s house in Nottingham, he heard a 20-year-old Muslim extolling the virtues of Ahle Hadees, a sect which propagates puritanical Islam. Shahin asked the boy the treatment he would prescribe for those Muslims who didn’t follow the Ahle Hadees sect. “Kill them,” said the young fanatic in a cold-blooded tone. “It really disturbed me.

    The boy had apparently been influenced by radical organisations like Al Muhajiroon and Hizb-ut-Tehrir. Thousands of young Muslims had been brainwashed by incendiary preacher Omar Bakri who commanded the following that saints do,” recalls Shahin. “I knew it would not take long before the fires of fanatic Islam reached the Indian subcontinent and consumed our youth."

    Recalling Maulana Shibli Nomani and His Religious Ideas Inspired By Ilm ul Kalam (Rational Philosophy of Islam) In an Era of Salafi Islam Which Has Outlawed Rationality
    Maulana Shibli Nomani

    Ilm ul Kalam (rational and creative interpretation of Islamic precepts) has been practically outlawed by Wahhabi/Salafi Islam on the pain of death. But it was inspired by Ilm ul Kalam that one of India’s greatest rationalist, progressive Islamic thinkers Maulana Shibli Nomani pointed out that blind faith or unchecked servitude should never be the criterion to profess and practice Islamic postulates. …

    Islamic Society

    As in most religions, Muslims mostly understand and practice religious teachings they take for granted. If they do not depend on clerical authorities they usually obtain religious teachings from available written sources, tradition or even use their common sense and because a religion tends to easily enable absolutism — that one perceives everything related to his religion as sacred and undisputable — the seeds of terrorism can straightforwardly be sowed.....
