    Islamic Ideology

    History of conflicts is written by historians who after all are humans. They have their biases, axes to grind and or the knowledge that they have of the historic events, may not be complete and so history cannot be taken as the absolute truth. There is always an element of doubt, particularly so if the history is viewed with tinted vision, religious fervour, beliefs and prejudices. With religious biases such conflicts are disguised as 'God's Will' and therefore presented with labels of just wars, holy wars, crusades and jihad. The irony being that, often the inter religious wars, are waged in the name of the same 'God' that all combatants in the conflict fight for....

One of the ‘commanders’ added, “Our leadership feels that they [US] will prolong their stay in Afghanistan if we announced a ceasefire now.” They also asserted that the outfit would persist with their attacks....

    Sufi Theologians Too Need To Introspect and Cleanse Their Theology of Elements of Supremacism and Political Islam: Sultan Shahin Tells Muslim Nations at UNHRC, Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    Mr. President,

    Even17 years after 9/11, terrorism in the name of Islam is nowhere near its end. Yet, all that one hears from Muslim leaders is rhetoric against Islamist terrorism. No concrete action has been taken to cleanse the Islamic theology of totalitarianism, xenophobia, intolerance and a historical urge to expand the land of Islam through offensive Jihad. One would think that at least Sufi Muslims, who have been for long a victim of Jihadism, an offshoot of neo-Khwarij Salafism, would introspect and look into their own theology and purify it from elements of political Islam.

    This may sound strange to some. For, Sufism has been identified as the antidote to Jihadism. But we must also understand that Sufi theologians too have been votaries of Islamic world domination. The strangest thing that is happening now is that rather than cleansing their theology of traces of political Islam, sections of Sufi Muslims are actually engaged in what can be called a Wahhabisation of Sufism. The inclusive doctrine of Wahdatul Wujood (unity of being) has been replaced by exclusivist doctrine of Wahdatul Shuhood (unity of perception). Enlightening Sufi books teaching mysticism, ethics and morality have been taken out of the courses of study from Sufi madrasas and women are being barred from visitation of shrines.

    I would like to appeal to Muslim governments represented in the Council to introspect and cleanse the Islamic theology of elements of totalitarianism and offensive Jihad for world domination. There are war-time instructions in Islamic scriptures that should not be considered applicable to us Muslims today in the 21st century. Instead, what even earliest Sufi and Salafi theologians have said is that one so-called sword verse alone has abrogated 124 early verses of Quran preaching peace and pluralism....

    Multimedia

    Tunisia's "Islamist" Ennahda party announced last month that it was moving away from so-called "political Islam". The announcement is seen as a move to broaden its following by a party that has been labelled "moderate Islamist" for 30 years. While the move is welcomed by many, others raise questions: Can Muslim-majority countries strike a balance between faith and democracy? Or, is there an irreconcilable tension between liberal values and Islamic beliefs?...

    Over a period of time, the books written by Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Kathir, Hasan Banna, Qutub, Maududi and their likes have been unfortunately equated with Quran. While Quran is eternal guidance, their work was a product of their times, and whatever they wrote was  a knee jerk reaction to the tough situations they were dealing with, and certainly lacked the universalism of God and the Prophet that Quran preaches, both were referred to as God of the Universe and Mercy to the Universe respectively.....

    Pluralism in Islam -- Between Scripture and Praxis
    Parvez Ahmed

    Muslim scholars, political leaders and civic society must emphasize the pluralistic message of the Quran and urgently address the pervasive exclusivist attitude among many Muslims. Neglecting the pluralistic message of the Quran has allowed fringe groups to use anachronistic stereotypes about fellow Muslims, people of other faiths and entire nation-states, to unleash a form of violence rooted in extreme interpretations of Islamic eschatology….

    But Rezgui had recently been radicalised and Salhi had been on a watch list in the past.

In the meantime, many unborn girls of Pakistan are at risk or probably, gone girls....

    An ideology of hatred and terror can only be countered by an ideology of love and peace. Moderate Islamic preachers can play a proactive role in countering extremist discourses and promoting progressive and moderate ones. Although civil society activists also have an important role to cover this area, Ulema and other religious scholars can best work out strategies to control extremists’ preaching. .....

    The Islamic State, consequently, will eventually follow the same strategy as the Taliban, al Shabaab, al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. The group will abandon its territorial gains to return to an amorphous, low-level insurgency and terrorism campaign. It is, of course, the same strategic shift the group made in 2010. If it had not done so, it would not be here today. If the Islamic State does not abandon its here and now attitude, deciding to stand its ground and defend its caliphate to the end, it will be destroyed.....

    Islamic Ideology

    Even as radical Muslim groups claim religious sanction for their acts of terror, other Muslim groups, including noted Islamic scholars, insist that terrorism has no room whatsoever in Islam. In recent years, several noted Islamic scholars have even issued Fatwas condemning terrorism as unambiguously anti-Islamic. Scores of books have been penned by Muslim writers, debunking the misinterpretations of Islam by radical Islamist ideologues to suit their agendas. Yet, so far relatively little attention has been given to studying the Quranic attitude towards terrorism as a punishable crime and the punishment for terrorism....
