    We must view verses in the Quran from a lingual, social, philosophical as well as jurisprudential lens in order to understand the divine intent behind the legislations that they carry, and not from the lens of Meccan heritage or Arabic culture that applies the laws of its backward culture onto the Torah, Bible and Quran....

    Muslims and Islamophobia

    Islam as a global challenge is a simple notion: “Muslims are evil and dangerous.” Political leaders scraping for a simple narrative to organize a society, just as that body politic is anxious, unravelling, holding little patience or interest in engaging with complex challenges and solutions that require sacrifice, are tempted to turn to Islamophobia as a political crutch....

    Islam and Politics

    The top leadership of the CPIM, who were basically from the other side of border, never gave any thought to the Muslim question in West Bengal. They had to tolerate the Muslims and even maintain a veneer of secularism because Muslims were their most loyal vote-bank. 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.....

    The call is made in the name of restoring the ‘Sovereignty of Allah’! Is the sovereignty of Allah subject to us humans proclaiming and establishing it? Allah can any day impose his Will on us and take away from us our freedom and autonomy which He did when he subjected us to colonial rule. Do not fall for such misleading political slogans. Without doubt, we believe in following the Shariat of Allah or the Deen of Allah, but what the Classical Islamic Fiqh teaches us, is a hideous caricature of the Shariat of the Quran...

    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”....
