    War on Terror

    This pathological denialism has infected Leftists in India as well. Those who admit that Hindu texts such as Manusmriti have inspired centuries of terror unleashed by caste Hindus on Dalits, will shy away from accepting the Quran and Hadiths' influence on Islamists. When Hindu right-wing lynch mobs murder beef-eaters in defence of the 'holy cow', Leftists correctly call it Hindutva fascism. However, an Islamist terror attack is said to have 'nothing to do with Islam'. This doublespeak has only helped Hindutva outfits gain political points among the conservative Hindu base, in the same way Trump has done with xenophobic republicans

    Islamic Society

    This notion has no underpinnings in Quran. Still a consensus eludes Muslim community more particularly so called religious leaders about whom we had crafted the image of torch bearers. All the translations of Islamic literature dealing with Ahadith of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has been written by men, and interpreted as well, justifying everything on praxis of patriarchy. Islam became the only religion in world which introduced the concept of rights in its discourse....

     
    Islamic Society

    Based on the Sufi tradition laid down by Ameer Khusro, Sheikh Saleem Chisti and Nizamuddin Aulia, India should be a cultural leader as well as a hub for the promotion of Sufism in the world, which matches the philosophy of Hinduism in the context of spiritual traditions. Let Dargahs be promoted as National Integration Centres to counter terrorism and to keep Indian Muslims away from the clutches of Wahhabism. 

    Islamic Society

    And this brings us back to Deoband. Over the years it has become a sort of a franchise, with its graduates setting up their own madrasas based on its teachings and producing some of the most virulent extremists in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Most of these madrasas are funded by those Saudis intent on promoting their fundamentalist and ultra-conservative Wahhabi Islam – it draws its name from Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, an 18th century scholar who launched a movement to revive pure Islam...

    To conclude, problems associated with Muslim societies regarding marriage, divorce and other issues need surgery, not tablets.

    Book Review: While Islam Is Compatible with Democracy and Pluralism the Current Intolerant, Xenophobic, Exclusivist and Supremacist Theology Is Brazenly Un-Islamic
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    The anti-pluralism thesis and theology of the extremist Islamists such as the Salafist author of the book “Mujmal UsulI'tiqad Ahlis Sunnah wal-Jama'ah” should be condemned and refuted point by point to ensure democracy, pluralism and religious co-existence in the Muslim countries. For that, the monopoly of the priestly classes over the Islamic law and philosophy will have to be done away with. A great number of Muslim modernist thinkers, reformists and sociologists who ventured into Ijtihad or rethinking of the Islamic postulates have concluded that democracy is consistent with the progressive Islamic thought. …

    In the analysis of the question of the Asrar (self) there are references to strange and amazing similarities in the historical background of Muslim and Hindu thought; the very angle from which Śrī Śankarācārya gave an exegesis of the Gītā, is the point of view from which Shaikh Ibn-al'Arabī of Andalusia has given a commentary on the Qur'ān, and that has left a deep impact on Muslims...

    The First Steps toward a Reform of Islam: Muslims should address the violent nature of a certain number of Quranic verses
    Jérôme Blanchet-Gravel

    Muslim representatives should address is the violent nature of a certain number of Quranic verses. Contrary to Surahs revealed in Mecca (610-622), some of the Surahs revealed in Medina (622-632) show a will of power. The reason for this is that Prophet Muhammad has evolved in two different historical contexts in the seventh century in the Arabian Peninsula. If Muhammad was really peaceful in Mecca (610-622), he was more belligerent in Medina (622-632), which explains why a certain number of Quranic Surahs are vindictive...

    It cannot be disputed that these governments are responsible for the greater defamation of Islam today, by helping to create the terrorist organizations like al-Qaeda, the Taliban and Daesh. By shedding human blood and vandalizing the holy graves of prophets and shrines of God's saints across the Muslim world, they continue to defame Islam and Muslims the world over. Thousands of innocent Palestinians have been victims of Israeli- violence over the years. Still, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE and other Wahhabi governments are silent onlookers of this dance of destruction. ....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    It needs to be reiterated here that the Shariah is a social construct that came into existence at a particular point in time, echoing the values of those times. That was then, this is now. Our times call for a reinterpretation that incorporates the notion of gender equality. Even if these religious bodies baulk at modern ideas of gender justice, they could at least study a few models present in the contemporary Muslim world for ushering in changes. The Mudawana--the new Islamic Family Law--of Morocco is a case in point. ..
