    Orlando Shooter Mateen Adds To American-Muslims’ Misery
    S.Mubashir Noor, New Age Islam

    A way of life increasingly at odds with Muslims living in the US, or so the right-wing press would have you believe. Republican presumptive nominee for president, Donald Trump, had a field day sneering “I told you so” after he was broadly panned by his party leadership last December for proposing a temporary ban on all Muslims from entering the US. His “suggestion” followed the San Bernardino shooting spree perpetrated by a radicalized Muslim couple that left 14 dead.

    Morocco has just lost the great progressive sociologist Fatema Mernissi, who was one of the cultural and intellectual icons of the country. The deceased spent her entire life defending gender equality, women's rights, moderate Islam, the Islam of mercy, love, and tolerance. She dealt with contemporary issues with scientific rigor, objectivity and boldness, often breaking taboos.

    I'm A Muslim Woman with My Head Held High... But Can My Mind Be Without Fear?
    Anjum Parveen

    It becomes worse if you wear your religion on your sleeve. We are not an ultra-secular or an ultra-liberal country where we accommodate all religions but do away with religious symbols. We are not like France, where women are not allowed to wear a hijab. I travel in the local train wearing my headscarf and one day a brawl over seats led to a Hindu woman telling me that Muslims like me who come from Madrasas lack manners and that we should not venture out from there.

    Islamic Ideology

    The radicalisation myth: Islam doesn’t propagate hatred, it teaches equality
    Mahmood A. Madani

    …Islam doesn’t justify violence or targeting of innocent lives in the manner in which it was done in Paris. The Prophet was a messenger of peace. Islam teaches equality, it doesn’t propagate hatred. Individuals and organisations engaging in such criminal acts have no place in any religion. This was also the message at the countrywide anti-IS protests organised by members of the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind in 75 cities after the Paris attack.

    The Feminist/Feminine Response to Terror
    Nora Dunn

    Terrorism is not an issue to be equated with losing a bird feeder, but my sadness about it is connected. Taking in Syrian refugees, all ten thousand of them, is a must if we are going to maintain our sensitivity to the needs of those who are depending on us, even if we are afraid to do it. Fear is necessary, but peddling it, as many politicians and military industrialists are, is not.

    Could This Quran Curb Extremism?
    Daniel Burke

    By contrast, early Muslims revered the Quran as the literal word of God but knew that not every verse should be interpreted literally, argue the editors of "The Study Quran." Disputes and commentary about sacred scripture are not a modern, liberal betrayal of Islamic tradition. They are the tradition.

    Islamic Society

    Friday Sermons in Indian Mosques Should Refute The Extremist Theology Of Violence And Xenophobia And Promote Positive, Pluralistic, Inclusive Values Of Islam?

    Any sort of support, openly or tacitly, to extremist activities through any means completely goes against the basic principles of Islam. But there are still an overwhelming number of mosque preachers who seem to live in denial and hence don’t utter a single word in the rejection of the extremist ideology. But what about the Prophetic exhortations in which he urged Muslims, particularly the leaders of the Ummah, to stand against the evils at least by tongue or heart?...
