The sad part of the story is that the Muslim World, which once was at its peak in scientific endeavours...

The judge left immediately for Hajj after the sentencing, but the prosecutor complained of death threats being flung at him daily. Qadri has a grand mausoleum just outside Islamabad, where thousands go to pay homage to him. The son of the murdered governor, Shahbaz Taseer, was kidnapped by the Taliban and kept under savage conditions in Afghanistan for three years before he was able to escape....

    Empowerment of Women in Islam: Now and Then
    Dr. Mohammad Ghitreef, New Age Islam

    Islam brought to women their dignity, freedom, justice and equality. It infused in them a sense of self confidence and a seeking sprite of truth and hunger for knowledge .That is why in early Islam a woman is seen participating in all the vibrant social activates, say, learning knowledge, propagating it even teaching men for that matter, participating even in war zone and political arena. In prophetic era Hazrat Ayesha as first lady of Islam not only was a great Aalima having deep knowledge of Quran and Hadith, but was enjoying an expertise in areas of Arabic poetry, medicine teaching and jurisprudence….

    Attack on Sufi Shrine in Balochistan: An Honest Introspection on the Islamists’ Cultural War in the Sub-Continent Required
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    This is a trying time for all the Sufi practitioners and shrine-visitors in India and Pakistan. First time in the history, Ajmer Sharif--the biggest Sufi shrine in India--is being used in a large political campaign of the Jami'at Ulema-e-Hind (JUH), whose key members and religio-politicians declare Sufism "un-Islamic", yet chose the largest Sufi shrine to organise their 33th annual conference, clearly in an attempt to woo the mainstream Sufi-oriented Muslims in India….

    Suffice it to say that Quran calls for conservation of animal life and therefore has nominated a long period in which hunting is prohibited so as to give animals time to recover from the depletion of its population at the hands of mankind. Therefore, animals being also a community of creation, it is to be cherished and husbanded sustainably....

    Zakir Naik’s Open Letter: Democrat or an Islamo-Fascist Demagogue?
    Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

    If one is hell bent on arguing that Islam is the best religion in the world and that polytheism of the Hindus is a backward and deplorable religious worldview, then how does this promote peace and tolerance? If he continues to justify that Islam alone is the saviour of world, then how does this promote peace and mutual respect? Calling such sermons of a third rate pedant as dialogue militates against the very idea of a dialogical plural world. Zakir Naik is not interested in dialogue: he is a fascist demagogue who wants all the world to convert to his point of view.

    His hypocrisy on democracy begins to unravel the minute he takes recourse to the Quran. There are many passages within the text to cite in terms of pluralism and tolerance. But to quote the verse which tells Muslims to be patient and wait for their eventual victory over the polytheists is perhaps too much. This is not a man who is a believer in the virtues of secular laws like democracy. This is a man who wants to unfurl the Islamic flag everywhere, demean and trounce all other religious traditions. The recourse to democracy and the language of rights are only a means to an end: that of establishing the supremacy of Islam. ....

    Allah Hafiz vs. Khuda Hafiz
    Almas Kiran Shamim

    A Christian from Pakistan can use ‘Khuda’; a Zoroastrian from Iran can use ‘Khuda’. This, by no means, implies that a Muslim from either Pakistan or Iran cannot use ‘Khuda’. When you say that ‘Khuda’ can also mean the Christian God or the Parsi God or even the Sikh or Hindu God, you are actually trying to say that there IS a Christian God, a Parsi God, a Sikh God, and a Hindu God besides a Muslim God Allah.....

    The Fight for Muslim Women’s Rights: Toward a Scriptural Hermeneutic of Islamic Feminism
    Dr. Adis Duderija, New Age Islam

    A Salafi worldview/epistemology is based on a hermeneutical mechanism central classical Islamic law which at least, in theory, a  priori privileges the interpretive efforts of the early Muslim communities (especially the distinguished Companions and the Successors) over all others. When combined with the other mechanisms explained above a Salafi worldview/epistemology implies a subscription to an epistemologically pre-modern episteme that lacks internal hermeneutical mechanisms to incorporate ethical values and system of ethics that were not prevalent at the time of the formative and classical periods of Islamic thought into its ethical and legal canon....

    Radical Islamism, In Any Form or Fashion, Is Not Compatible With the Pluralistic and Democratic Indian Ethos
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    This is a tough time for introspection on part of the Indian Ulema and Islamic scholars. Merely organising large anti-terrorism conferences will do no service to the community. Time they combat the exclusivist, xenophobic, misogynistic and anti-plural religious underpinnings, be they embedded in Salafism, the Saudi state religion, or any other strain of Islam. Radical Islamism, in any form or fashion, is not compatible with the secular, pluralistic and democratic Indian ethos...

    Missile Attack at Makka Mukarrama: Why Are the Indian Muslim Religio-Politicians Silent Onlookers?
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    Muslim leaders and politicians in India are busy in a crazy competition of organizing conferences, greater campaigns and processions to protect their ‘right to triple Talaq’. Countrywide hue and cry is still being heard from the self-imposed Muslim representatives championing the cause of Tahaffuz-e-Shariat (protection of Shariah).  “Islam is under attack” is their daily sloganeering in India. But what about the birthplaces of Islam—Makka and Madina— which suffer the brutal and bloodthirsty attacks?...

    The second observation of the Court was that they wanted to know if segregation was an essential feature of the Islamic faith. It is a matter of great shame that the Dargah trustees went at length to prove that it was essential to the Islamic faith. Marshalling passages from the Quran and Hadees, they went at great lengths to show how Islam indeed was a backward, regressive religion which limited the movement of women. The Court however was not convinced and could not find any merit in the argument that allowing women to pray at the Dargah will fundamentally alter the faith of Islam....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam
    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.....
