    It is a fact that children who do not know English, math, or science cannot compete in the job market or benefit from university-level education. They become the victim of conspiracy theories, pseudo-scientific nonsense, and various forms of illogic. Madrasa graduates can become Maulvis and Quazis but not engineers, scientists, or doctors. India sees it’s Madressahs as posing a serious education problem but not — at least officially — as a terrorism problem.....

    Islamic Ideology

    This psychological fear of the prophet (pbuh) that he might forget what was revealed to him is evident in the Quran where God assures him that he should not bother about memorizing the verses. They will be preserved in his bosom and he will not forget them. On three occasions, God assures the prophet (pbuh) and these asides that are not part of the topics of revelations have also been included in the Surah. ... .

    Therefore, the asides that were retained in the Quran though they were meant only for the prophet and were said in a particular situation convey to us a certain message: that the Quran is not uncreated and has been revealed or created by God for a particular audience through a messenger who was from amongst them with all the human traits. Apart from these asides, there are also verses that have been revealed according to the questions asked by the Jews or the polytheists of Makkah, again conveying the message that the Quran is not uncreated and has been revealed or created by God for a particular audience in a particular context.....

    The loudest noise supported by atrocities is being made by advocates of the Takfiri doctrine. Learning institutions, especially Al Azhar University that is still teaching old curriculum unrelated to Quranic Science that can be found in scientific papers written by Islamic scientists of the past like Ibn Sinan Al Qanawi and Shabistari can never silence the Takfiri retards until it reforms itself by providing teachers well-versed in science. Many Quranic verses will never be understood without knowing physics and chemistry.....

    In Pakistan, a significant and disturbing number of suicide bombers were between 12 and 18 years of age, with one estimate placing that number at 90%.[2] Although young militants are generally teenagers when asked to carry out suicide attacks, the indoctrination of children often starts at a much younger age. In the PBS documentary Children of the Taliban, journalist Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy interviewed Taliban commander Qari Hussain, who boasted that he also recruits children as young as five, six and seven years old, emphasizing, “Children are tools to achieve God’s will. And whatever comes your way, you sacrifice it.”.....

    The institution of Zakat in Islam is aimed to bring comfort to the poor who need financial assistance. The idea behind the obligation of Zakat is that the enormous wealth that one possesses is not one's own. The creator of the world is the real Owner of all the wealth we think we possess. The rich are only His trustees. Therefore, they must earn and spend the wealth as per His will. “O believers! Spend of the good things which you have earned, and of that which We have produced from the earth for you, and do not aim at that which is bad to spend from it” (Quran: 2:267)….

    Finally, the fact that India’s sizeable Muslim population has not yet reacted with any vigour to the ideological inducements offered by the IS — thanks probably to our democratic system — must not be taken for granted. The IS is reportedly already knocking on the doors in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. India, therefore, needs to urgently look at pro-active and out-of-the- box solutions that will help them integrate and achieve Muslim aspirations through the democratic system. One measure that could be given serious consideration is Singaporean housing system — wherein the law there requires each locality and housing community to have specific quotas for every section and ethnicity of the population. This enhances inclusiveness among all sections of society.....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Following the ban on ISIS in India, Urdu media has shown a slight change in its reporting style, though not in its editorial policy,  but the Sunni ulema have continued to maintain a mysterious silence over ISIS claim to represent Islam, with Khalifa  Baghdadi presenting Islam as a religion of permanent war, continuous violence and strife. Even the Baghdadi claim that Islam has not been a religion peace, even for a day, did not bring out any response from Indian Muslim ulema or Urdu media. ....

    The following steps and initiatives can be taken by the government if it seriously wants to contain the growing sectarian and radical inclination among the Muslim youth.

    1. A joint statement of prominent Indian ulema from all Sunni sects should be acquired, condemning the ideology and violent theology of terrorist organisations like ISIS, Taliban, Boko Haram, etc by name. General statements criticising extremism have not worked. Ulema will have to be specific.

    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....
