    On the one hand, the Quran (42: 13] says that the Deen or religion that God has sent humankind is one and the same and that it has been sent to every messenger in the same form. On the other hand, from the above-cited Quranic verse (5: 48), one learns that God has established a difference with regard to the Shariah and Minhaj or methodology of religious practice of the different messengers.  Different messengers were given different Shariah and different methodologies......

    Modernity and the Madrasa
    Arshad Alam

    Since 1993, there has been a madrasa modernisation policy, primarily designed for Azad madrasas. The idea was to convince them to teach modern subjects in lieu of state grants for books and additional teachers. But the policy treated madrasas as homogeneous, so grants were also cornered by state-funded madrasas. Also, a majority of the grants to Azad madrasas have been utilised to hire part-time untrained teachers, which defeats the purpose of introducing quality education in these institutions. To top it all, madrasas affiliated to Deobandis and Ahl-e-Hadis completely refused to take part in this initiative. It was due to this stiff opposition of the Ulema that the previous government dropped the idea of having an all-India madrasa board through which reforms could be implemented. In a move that can only be called a travesty of justice, the previous government also exempted madrasas from the provisions of the right to education act. So while everyone else has a fundamental right to education in this country Muslim children studying in madrasas have become casualties of a perverted form of secularism......

    The Qur’anic pronouncements on justice as listed in the foregoing are clear, concise and unambiguous and together establish one of its revolutionary principles. Until the advent of Islam and for centuries to come, the poor and the weak were denied justice while the rich and the mighty enjoyed a privileged form of justice that institutionalized oppression and injustice in human society. The Qur’an abolished all this, and paved the way for the establishment of societies, in which the weakest could take the strongest to the court of law and get justice.....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    ISIS has suddenly got this momentum because it is supported by Sunni tribes and groups. The latter did not ally themselves with ISIS because they shared its inhumane dogma but because they sought liberation from the sectarian persecution and policy of exclusion that the Iraqi government has been exercising for years. This sectarianism got worse when the Americans left Iraq and the Iraqi fanatical politicians got a free hand to carry out their oppressive and exclusive agenda. Nouri al-Maliki and his governments have played a major role in the creation of the current sectarian Iraq. They might be Shia fanatics, but they are also responsible for the creation of Sunni fanaticism....

    What is the root cause of terrorist violence? What makes someone disturbingly eager to orchestrate merciless rampages? Both Abdulazeez and Saad had been described as ‘normal’ kids before they plummeted into a wave of darkness. Saad reportedly received special training for the style of executions he carried out in Safoora Goth. In his case, it appears as if a pervading extremist ideology somehow managed to infiltrate his conscience. This comes as no surprise when men like Maulana Abdul Aziz, the hate-spewing Lal Masjid cleric, are allowed to roam free regardless of the numerous arrest warrants that have been issued against them.....

    Historical blunders notwithstanding, the media can do a lot more to even the playing field between extremist and moderate voices. Thanks in part to television; the likes of the rabble-rousing Akbaruddin Owaisi and the fundamentalist preacher Zakir Naik wield a megaphone in India’s public square. Few people have even heard of the insightful anti-extremist scholar Sultan Shahin, or of Tufail Ahmad, who doggedly tracks contemporary Islamist thinking in the Indian subcontinent.

    In sum, what Cameron calls “the struggle of our generation” isn’t confined to a Britain roiled by home-grown Islamist extremism. It’s a global phenomenon whose lessons apply as much to India as to any other democracy.....

    The Islamic caliphate is one of those concepts that have suffered from what I call the “purist” approach to understanding and presenting Islamic history. When used with any aspect of this history, this approach unfailingly produces a narrative that is extraordinarily tidy and untroubling but at the same time largely unhistorical. This applies to things such as Islamic law, the Prophet’s Hadith, Islam’s political history, and so on. The caliphate is another victim of such a naïve and uncritical view of the history of Islam. The purist approach is the outcome of conflating Islam and Muslims. The Islamic caliphate is a Muslims’ invention, not a genuine Islamic concept.....

    Defeating Islamism and Jihadism: Evolve a New Theology of Peace, Pluralism and Gender justice, Sultan Shahin asks Muslim States at UNHRC in Geneva
    Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor, New Age Islam

    A War on Terror has been raging for 17 years now but we are no closer to defeating Islamist terror. Jihadism continues to attract Muslim youth. This is because the world has not paid enough attention to the ideology of Islamism and Jihadism.

    Mainstream Muslims have considered Islam a spiritual path to salvation, one of the many. Islam aims at reforming society for a peaceful, harmonious, pluralist existence. However, due to certain historical factors, the theology and jurisprudence of Islam that evolved in the 8th and 9th centuries (CE), present Islam as a political, totalitarian ideology of supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance and gender discrimination. It is this theology of violence, exclusivism and world-domination that is taught in madrasas and sustains Islamism. But despite the Islamist violence against peaceful Muslims and non-Muslims alike, the community is still not focussed on the need for evolving a counternarrative of Islam.

     It is imperative that Muslim countries that have signed the UN Charter look into the issue urgently and work towards developing a new theology of peace, pluralism and gender justice. While several countries like Morocco and now Saudi Arabia appear to be moving in this direction, the one country that has made a solid contribution is Turkey. In a decade-long exercise 100 Turkish scholars have managed to limit the number of authentic ahadith to just 1600, out of over 10,000, and provide each hadith with context and suitable interpretation. This book of authentic Hadith has been provided to all mosques in Turkey but I hope it is made available to the global Muslim community in their own languages as soon as possible.

    Allama Iqbal, a poet-philosopher of the South Asian sub-continent had called for the reconstruction of religious thought in Islam almost a hundred years ago. Let us at least start working on it now....
