    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۔

    If one’s success in the Hereafter depends on us following the true Deen, then, someone might ask, what is the wisdom behind the fact that God seems to have permitted so many conflicting interpretations of the Deen of Islam. This, someone might say, may seemingly make it even more difficult to recognise the Truth. My answer to this is that the presence of different interpretations is related to human freedom. Moreover, it is not an evil. It is for the sake of intellectual development. These differences are nothing but intellectual challenges. …

    But scriptural moral guidance has meaning for only those who believe; or are perceptive enough to understand the "signs" of the grace of God and appreciate that the universe has a moral purpose. It is of little consequence to those who see without insight, who do not follow "the ways of peace" and "what pleases him" (5:16). Hence, the Qur'an's moral exhortations are couched, in the words of Bishop Kenneth Cragg, in "the perpetual perhaps"…..

    Radical Islamism and Jihad
    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....
