    The Country Is Gone, It Is Not For Living Any More, Syria Is Ashes

    Syria is an immense collective failure. What has changed for the West in the past several weeks is that it has become more difficult to live in denial of this fact. Western responsibility is engaged by the unfathomable irresponsibility that has turned Syria into a slaughterhouse. President Obama has offered to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees; that is a pittance. A Europe of half a billion people must reject pampered smallness and open its eyes. Desperation cannot be met by penny-counting calculation, or doors slamming shut.....

    Indian Maulana Salman Nadwi Congratulates Abu Bakr Baghdadi, Accepts Him As Caliph Of Muslims, Writes Him A Letter Expressing His Excitement At The Establishment Of Islamic Caliphate
    By Sultan Shahin, Editor, New Age Islam

    In our previous editorial, we had expressed our sense of relief that Abu Bakr Baghdadi’s caliphate has been accepted by only terrorist organisations in Pakistan, Nigeria and Syria and the religious scholars of the world, especially the Egyptian Islamic scholar and mufti Yousuf Al Qaradhawi had rejected Abu Bakr’s claim to be the caliph of the Muslims of the world as null and void and un-Islamic. But to our utter shock, we have come to know through a news report published in the front page of Urdu daily Aag of Lucknow that one of the renowned Islamic scholar and great grandson of Maulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi has congratulated Abu Bakr Baghdadi on being appointed as the caliph of Muslims and has prayed for his well being and safety. In a letter written to Baghdadi which is available on What’s App, he has showered praises on his valour and religious zeal with which he has taught a lesson to the tyrant ruler Nuri Al Maliki. In his two page letter, Maulana Salman Nadvi has addressed Abu Bakr Baghdadi as Ameerul Momineen and has praised Abu Bakr Baghdadi for establishing the much desired Islamic Caliphate......

    It's the Fundamentalist, Anti-Modern Wahhabi Brand of Islam That Is Scaring You

    Thanks to the Wahhabis' centuries-old alliance with the Saudi royal family (and all that Saudi oil money, barrels of it), they can -- and they have been -- spreading puritanical Islam in the US and around the world. (Some observers trace ISIS's roots back to Wahhabism; others assert that ISIS is a political movement with but a tenuous connection to Islam.)......

    Islam Was Embraced By The Masses Because Of The Stark Simplicity, Honesty, The Power Of Love And Faith Exemplified By Saints And Sufis

    Contrary to the widespread canard, Islam took roots and spread in much of South Asia not at gunpoint. Rather, it was embraced by the masses who were bowled over by the stark simplicity and honesty of Arab merchants and traders and the power of love and faith exemplified by saints and Sufis like Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti of Ajmer, Nizamuddin Auliya of Delhi and Syed Abul Hasan Hajvery of Lahore. They endorsed and demonstrated the liberating message of Islam and its teachings of love, peace, universal brotherhood and equality before God with their actions and conduct……

    Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam Must Discover Their Spiritual Symbiosis for a Conflict-Free, Environment Conscious World
    Sultan Shahin, Editor, New Age Islam

    The Global Hindu-Buddhist Initiative inaugurated recently  by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Prime Minister Shinzō Abe of Japan (through a video) focussed on confronting the rising tide of violence threatening the world order by "building a non-formal intellectual and geo-political architecture to appeal, influence, persuade and moderate the forces of violence."  In order to unravel the causes of conflict caused by violent ideologies, and preventing violence from escalating, the well-delineated concept paper for the conference suggested "intense studies about the sources and impulses of violence."

    This is an urgent task. While violence has and can emanate from people professing other ideologies,  in present times we are largely facing terrorism from the practitioners of a particularly vile form of the Islamist ideology. Islamism is a derivative of the religion of Islam, which has peace enshrined in its very name. The word Islam itself means peace, though its practitioners have practised violence, defensive and offensive, at different points in Muslim history.  Contrary to explicit guidance in their primary scripture, the holy Quran, some Muslims have taken upon themselves the task of imposing Islam on the world through violent means. This group is called Islamist and their ideology Islamism.

    One can have no doubt, therefore, that the concept of Global Hindu-Buddhist Initiative on Conflict Avoidance and Environment Consciousness is an inspired idea whose time has come, given the growing threat to world peace from a bunch of misguided Islamists. It is primarily the job of Muslims to confront this cancerous growth in the body politic of Islam, but help from other cultures is entirely welcome....

    Mumbai-Based Raza Academy is a Soft Version of Jihadism
    Tufail Ahmad for New Age Islam

    If modern civilisation is characterised by freedom of speech and individual liberty, Islamic theocrats are the modern-day barbarians threatening the modernity of our age. Among the numerous Islamic clerics who taunt the Indian republic and its rule of law is Saeed Noori, the chief of Mumbai-based Raza Academy – a Barelvi theocratic institution at the centre of a fatwa (Islamic decree) against the Oscar-winner Indian music director A. R. Rahman and Iranian filmmaker Majid  Majidi for their film, "Muhammad: Messenger of God."As per a media report, the fatwa declared Rahman and Majidi as "infidel" and their marriages "invalid" as per Islamic Shariah. It noted:"It is nothing short of a crime to make a film on the Prophet; dramatizing his life and using non-Muslim actors...Making such a film is making a mockery of religion."....

    Why Not Constitutional Path for Indian Muslims?
    Tufail Ahmad

    October-December 2011, Aligarh-based journal Tahqeeqat-e-Islami argued: Islam is based on “expedience.” It quoted 14th century jurist Ibn Taymiyyah, the father of jihadists, as saying: “jurists are unanimous on the presence of prudence and expedience in the commandments of Shariah.” It quoted Prophet Muhammad as saying: one who leaves Islam should be killed as expedience to safeguard Islam. Ansari’s mention of Al-Ghazali and Maslaha will gladden the hearts of Islamists and jihadists…..

    Who decides what ‘authentic Islam’ is?  It is true that many Muslims hold that authentic Islam is opposed to every form of religious violence.  Some writers call them moderate Muslims. I do not qualify Muslims as moderate or otherwise. I do not judge them. I just refer to Muslims either as ‘many Muslims’ or as ‘some Muslims’. Many Catholic scholars on Islam note that it is true that the Qur'an does allow and even command violence in some verses, but many Muslims would claim that that violence may only be defensive....

    Hajj – The Pilgrimage to Mecca: Essential Message of Islam: Chapter 47 and 48 (Concluding Part)

    The foregoing verses (22:36/37) make three clear points. First, the slaughtering of cattle in the name of God is purely symbolic, as the flesh or blood of the slaughtered animal does not reach God. Second, in the material context, the meat of the slaughtered cattle is to be eaten by the pilgrim, and shared with the poor and the needy. Finally, the real goal is Taqwa – heedfulness of God, which is also stressed in another verse.5 In the nomadic society of pre-Islamic Arabia, cattle head constituted the main instrument of asset. They were treated with honour, and sacrificed to please various deities. The Qur’an permitted the continuation of this rite, but reserved it only for God.15 .....

    If Islam Means Peace, Why Is Much Of Its Theology Soaked In Hatred, Humiliation, Offensive War?
    Sultan Shahin, New Age Islam

    Among many factors, social, economic, political, psychological, the one common feature is a brainwashing of vulnerable people on the basis of a supremacist, xenophobic, intolerant, exclusivist and totalitarian Jihadi theology. This is a blatant misuse of Islam, a spiritual path to salvation, that 1.6 billion Muslims believe, teaches peace, pluralism, co-existence and good neighbourliness.

     But there has to be a reason why jihadi ideology has gained acceptance so quickly; why fatwas issued by reputed moderate scholars prove so ineffective? How are Jihadis able to create a 100 percent certainty in the minds of some Muslims that violence against innocent people, including Muslims, whom they consider infidel, will please God and lead them to heaven?

     Clearly we Muslims need to rethink some basic features of our theology. Success of jihadism lies in the fact that, at its core, the jihadi theology is not very different from the consensus theology of all other schools of Islamic thought. For instance, jihadists are able to misuse the intolerant, xenophobic, war-time verses of the holy Quran, as Muslims believe that all verses, regardless of the context, are of universal applicability. Indeed, the Islamic theology of consensus, taught in all madrasas, says that Quran is uncreated, meaning that it is just an aspect of God; and so, divine like God Himself.....
