    جو لوگ شب برأت کا اہتمام کرتے ہیں ان میں سے بھی اکثر لوگوں کو یہ پایا جاتا ہے کہ وہ شب برأت جیسی  مقدس رات کی ناقدری کرتے ہیں اور اسے سڑکوں اور گلیوں  میں گھوم پھر کر ضائع کر دیتے ہیں ۔ یہ سراسراللہ رب العزت کے اس احسان عظمیٰ کی ناشکری ہے جو اس نے شب برأت کی شکل میں ہمیں عطا کی ہے۔ لہٰذا، ہمیں یہ چاہئے کہ اس رات میں ہم اپنے گناہوں سے توبہ و استغفار کریں ، اور اللہ سے مغفرت اس کی رحمت اور نار جہنم سے آزاری کا پرانہ طلب کریں جو کہ اس رات مؤمنوں کے لئے اللہ کا سب سے بڑا تحفہ ہے۔

    The Misconstrued Concept of Hijrat and the Position of Indian Ulema
    Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

    No Indian Islamic cleric denies the significance of Hijrat (migration) in the early period of Islamic history. But to some clerics, Hijrat is mandatory (Wajib) even today for the Muslims living in the democratic countries. For liberal democracy is akin to Kufr in their view. Such toxic notions of the Hijrat are actually political tools which the extremist outfits use to further their political ends. Highlighting the Muslim marginalisation in countries like India, the extremist Islamist preachers indoctrinate the gullible Muslim youth mostly belonging to poor Muslim families who can be unconsciously trained to serve their political agendas….

    Was Allah Unjust in Creating Adam and Favouring His Progeny Over All His Creation?
    Naseer Ahmed, New Age Islam

    Man is the only creation that has moral agency, capable of both good and evil. Every other creation follows the nature given to it and is therefore not subject to Allah's judgment. We know from our history that the modern man with cognitive abilities did not appear on the earth until 70,000 years ago. There were other progenitors of human beings besides Adam, who appeared about 250,000 years ago. Every other species of humans besides the progeny of Adam is long extinct. Humans were like any other animal and lived like animals without guidance from Allah, without religion and without culture.  “The most important thing to know about prehistoric humans is that they were insignificant animals with no more impact on their environment than gorillas, fireflies or jellyfish” (Harari).The Quran says of such people:

     (76:1)” Has there not been over Man a long period of Time, when he was nothing - (not even) mentioned? “

    “Indian Ulema issued fatwa of Jihad against Britishers occupying the country. As a result, millions of religious leaders and followers peddled this idea of Jihad to fight for the freedom of India and thus most of them attained the rank of martyrdom.” He said this was true Jihad as Islamic Jihad is the name of giving such sacrifices.  This way both the leaders openly discussed terrorism, expressing their concern over the current troubling situation that the anti-Islamic people link the word “terrorism” with Islam and Muslims, for institutionalizing certain conspiracies, while terrorism has no place in Islam....

    What Are We Commemorating on Baqr Eid?

    More importantly perhaps, the Muslim story about Bakr Eid is a continuation of the earlier Jewish and Christian covenant with God where blood plays a very significant role. Within the Semitic tradition, it is only through blood that redemption becomes possible. The Torah is filled with passages where blood becomes important to save oneself from God’s wrath and where animal sacrifice was an important aspect of pleasing the God. And certainly, the same God would sacrifice his own son called Jesus to ‘save the humanity’. It is through the blood of Christ that humanity had to be redeemed.....

    The lack of political wisdom in announcing it when Lok Sabha elections are nearing, has given yet another issue to BJP to divert attention, whose government has failed to keep its election promises and is faced with general discontent. The timing of the announcement is significant because earlier, just weeks before the UP assembly elections, the Board, in its press conference at the Press Club of Delhi, had announced a countrywide agitation beginning from Lucknow.  A sizable section of Muslims have been accusing the Board for providing fuel to the Sangh Parivar on such occasions....

    The Muslim became the perpetual and potential other, always suspected of being beef eaters and therefore potential outsiders.

    The criminal act of the Saudi state should have led to a larger debate about the absence of an atmosphere of liberal critique in much of the Arab and Muslim world.

    On the Meaning of Khatm e Nabuwwat

    I consider it unfortunate that the Ahmediya’s call their imam a prophet, but then I equally consider every belief different from my beliefs as unfortunate. Beyond the problem with nomenclature, there is little that you can find fault with in their beliefs. If they had called their leader Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian an Imam rather than Nabi, there would have been no problem at all. In my opinion, the Ahmediya websites provide the best Tafseer on the Quran, and the Ahmediya are good Muslims, who honour the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Allah. Their beliefs do not dishonour Islam, and they are a people we can be proud of and be friends with....

    The concept of Ummat-e-Wahida (“one nation”) through the terms of the Madina constitution clearly shows that the Muslims and non-Muslims whether from Makkah or Madinah were one community. Thus, this Prophetic principle recognized the “nation” for the first time in the history as a one indivisible unit, moving from the individual or the tribal life to the life of the single nation. It is not characterized by any particular religion, racism or tribalism. It rather ended racism and discrimination on the basis of religion:“The Jews shall be responsible for their expenses and the Believers for theirs…...

    Do Not Repeat the Mistakes of 1989 in Allowing the Return of Taliban, New Age Islam Editor Sultan Shahin Asks International Community at UNHRC in Geneva

    Mr. President,

    The US is withdrawing from Afghanistan as well as from Iraq and Syria. Inspired by the Taliban declaration of victory, a radicalised terrorist in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, backed by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organisation, attacked an Indian military convoy, killing 40 soldiers. Similar suicide attack killed 27 elite revolutionary guards in Sistan, Iran. Emboldened Jihadists will surely carry out more such attacks in future. The gloating in Islamist circles for having “defeated” both the superpowers, the Soviet Union and the United States, has reached its peak.

    Mr. President,

    Still fresh in our minds is what happened when the international community abandoned Afghanistan in 1989. Taliban ruled and Al-Qaeda got a safe haven. A series of atrocities including 9/11 and horrors of Islamic State followed.

     In this backdrop, the complacency of the world community in allowing Taliban to govern Afghanistan is inexplicable. Jihadist strength does not come from their soldiers and territories. It comes from an ideology and ideologies cannot be defeated militarily.

    Mr. President,

    The Jihadist ideology is based on very solid foundations in Islamic history, scriptures and theology. Moderate Muslims have not yet succeeded in evolving a satisfactory alternative theology of peace and pluralism to challenge the current theology of violence and exclusion. Even when such a theology evolves, it will take time and effort for it to be established. Mainstream Muslims should be allowed the time and space to work out and propagate a counternarrative. I would, therefore, urge the international community not to repeat the mistakes of 1989 and invite further disasters....
