    The main area of Ram Mohan's interest was the Vedanta or the Upanishads. Through an in-depth study of the Vedanta, he realized that the central message of Vedanta or Upanishads was Monotheism or Unity of God: Ekamevadvitiyam (He is One without a second) which in Arabic can be translated as La ilaha illAllah. The Upanishads or the Vedas do not preach or promote idol worship. But he observed that the Hindu community had become idolatrous and instead of professing monotheism they professed polytheism. They had also invented many rites and customs which were not mentioned in the Vedas or Upanishads....

    Nikah is essentially a contract laid down in a ‘Nikahnama’ drawn between the husband and the wife. This contract can have conditions and has a compulsory ‘consideration’ (Meher) to be paid at the time of the marriage. This consideration is paid by the man to the wife, and can be at time waived off by the woman as per her own will. So the basic difference between a Hindu Marriage and a Muslim Marriage is that for Hindus, marriage is a divine sacrament whereas for Muslims, it is contract drawn between the husband and the wife....

But beyond that, their historical antipathy towards Muslims blinded them to think in terms of any ameliorative action for this destitute community. ....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    The terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka suggest a shift in the modus operandi of the ISIS after its debacle in Syria and Iraq. It has now shrugged off its mask of the flag bearers of Islamic Caliphate with which it fooled the Muslims of the world and won the sympathy of a section of gullible Muslims and so-called Islamic scholars. Now they have come up with the real face as a terrorist organization. Now they taken to the path of Al Qaida, Taliban, Al Shabab and Boko Haram conducting cowardly attacks on unsuspecting innocent people....

    Radical Islamism and Jihad

    The emergence of the hardcore Salafist strains in Sri Lanka were seen in stray incidents of quarrels, clashes between Buddhists and Muslims and deliberate changeovers to Islamic dress codes by Muslim women. Thus, the Salafi Islam, overriding the traditional beliefs of Sri Lankan Muslim, emerged in Kattankudy in the 1980s. Initially, the Salafist adherents in Sri Lanka created sectarian clashes with the local Sufi followers considering them ‘apostates’. But they showed their true colours when they vandalised the Sufi structures belonging to the Tareeqa-tul-Mufliheen and burned down the houses of over hundred Sufi followers in December 2006. But perhaps because of its preoccupation with the threat from the separatist Tamil Tigers, who had officially pulled out of peace talks indefinitely, the then government did not take the rise of Salafism in Sri Lanka as a serious security issue.....

    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....
