    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    Mr. President,

    Islamophobia and Islamist violence are both growing and in the unlikeliest of places. Recent attacks on churches in Sri Lanka were as much of a surprise as the attack on mosques in Christchurch. And now copycat attacks are taking place elsewhere. A vicious cycle of xenophobic violence is in operation.

    While the world suffers from Jihadist violence, Muslims in particular suffer the most causalities in sectarian wars incited by the Islamist Jihadist ideology. And yet, even almost two decades after 9/11, Muslim nations continue to be in denial. Islamist ideology based on the Islamic theology of consensus is absolved of any responsibility for violent extremism.

    The result is that Muslim children continue to be taught in madrasas Islam supremacism and contempt for other religions. Even explicitly violent passages have not yet been weeded out from text books.

    The terrorism it generates takes many shapes. If Hindu, Sikh and Christian girls are abducted and forcibly converted to Islam in Pakistan, this too essentially comes from contempt for other religions taught in religious seminaries. In several countries including Pakistan, some Muslims do not wait for courts to pass judgements to punish those they consider guilty.

     The Council should convince the offending states to establish the rule of law on the basis of the UN Charter and repeal unacceptable laws against freedom of religion and conscience.-----

    An important principle that can be derived from this early history of Islam is that war can be waged by a state, not by non-state actors. There is no room for non-state warfare in Islam. Also, war in Islam is for defensive purposes alone, when the option of peace and negotiations has failed. The book enumerates various incidents from the life of the Prophet that shows the founder of Islam always made effort for avoidance of conflict. “The position of peace is sacrosanct in Islam,...

    Hafsa Khawaja

    However, using rape as an adjective in supposed humour is nothing less than an acceptance and approval for rape itself, for what is being thrown into process by this practice is the effective normalisation of the inhumanity of rape through its trivialisation. Using rape to describe the humiliating defeat of a sports team and to convey the extent of an examination paper gone bad have been heard or seen once by most, if not often....

    What is Sharia? And What Are Its Objectives? (Part 1)
    Aiman Reyaz, New Age Islam

    The term ‘Sharia’, taken from a purely linguistic point of view means ‘a way’. In Islam, it means a way of life that God has chosen and prescribed for humans. This, when taken on a higher level, gives the nature of Islam, not just as a way of religion but also as a complete way of life: there is a Sharia in how to pray; there is Sharia in how to give Zakat; there is Sharia in how to fast; in how to behave- socially, politically, ethically; and also in the battlefield, there is a proper code of conduct.....

    दुर्भाग्य से, हिंदू और मुसलमान दोनों समुदायों के कुछ धार्मिक कट्टरपंथी अपने गलत उद्देश्यों को पूरा करने के लिए हिन्दुस्तान के दो सबसे बड़े धर्मों के सामाजिक, सांस्कृतिक और धार्मिक संबंधों को खराब कर रहे हैं। वह सांप्रदायिक आग को हवा देते हुए हिन्दुस्तान के आध्यात्मिक गुरुओं की छवि बिगाड़ने की हद तक चले जाते हैं। अपने इस खतरनाक उद्देश्य की प्राप्ति के लिए वह यह अफवाह भी  फैला रहे हैं कि स्वामी विवेकानंद इस्लाम के जबरदस्त विरोधी थे। जबकि वास्तविकता इसके बिल्कुल विपरीत है। स्वामी जी इस्लाम के बुनियादी मूल्यों के बहुत बड़े प्रशंसक थे जिनके बारे में उनका विश्वास था कि पूरी दुनिया में इस्लाम के अस्तित्व का एकमात्र कारण उस के अंदर छुपे जबरदस्त आध्यात्मिक नैतिक मूल्य हैं।

    Radical Islamism and Jihad
    Why have Fatwas against Islamist Terrorism failed as A Counter-Terrorism Tool, Explains Sultan Shahin in a Conference in Birmingham, And Suggests the Kind of Fatwa Required

    Numerous fatwas (edicts) have been issued by ulema (Islamic scholars) across the globe, particularly since 9/11 in a bid to stem the tide of Islamist terrorism. Tens of thousands of ulema have endorsed these fatwas issued by influential institutions of Islamic learning of all sects in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh as well as other parts of the world. When issued, these fatwas inspired great expectations. As perceptive and insightful an observer as Mr. Ziauddin Sardar proclaimed “the beginning of the end of the war of terror” when a hundred thousand Deobandi ulema endorsed a fatwa issued by the hundred-year-old Islamic madrasa in Deoband, India, “unequivocally denouncing terrorism,” in June 2008. Similarly, Sufism-oriented Barailwis, hard-line Salafis, Ahl-e-Hadeesis, have all denounced Islamist terrorism in their separate or joint statements. But terrorist ideology continues to attract our youth, particularly in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. What used to be merely a Pakistan-sponsored secessionist struggle is showing signs of tuning into an Islamist struggle for the establishment of Islamic Sharia through a universal Caliphate, very much redolent of the objectives of the so-called Islamic State or ISIS.  Popularizing the slogan of “Shariatya Shahadat,” a militant leader Zakir Musa, Burhan Wani’s successor, even threatened to kill Hurriyat leaders for calling Kashmir’s separatist movement political and not religious. Calling them “hypocrites, infidels, followers of evil”, the militant had warned to chop off their heads to be hanged in Lal Chowk in Srinagar, “if they create hurdles in the path of making Kashmir an Islamic State”....
