    Spiritual Meditations

    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....

    The purpose of a moral code is to restrain man from indulging in pleasure seeking activities that harm the society or self, and encourage making sacrifices for the good of society, while allowing seeking pleasure which is good for self and society and avoiding pain which is harmful to self without any benefit to the society. The moral code from religion enabled us to develop trust in strangers through shared values from religion and cooperate in large numbers without which we may not have survived as a species...

    Islamic Ideology

    In one of his comments, Mr. Sultan Shahin, Founding Editor of New Age Islam writes, “Even Sayyid Qutb was inspired by Maulana Maududi’s work on Hakimiyyah and his concept of Iqamat e Deen as an essential religious duty for Muslims. He used terms like Taghut and Jahiliyah too, which have both become very popular in Islamist extremist circles. He forced the secular modern state of Pakistan to say Shahada through the objectives resolution that was largely a fruit of his writings. He considered Irtidad (apostasy) as treason because he considers Islam as a State. For him Islam and State are synonymous. He became so influential that even a Shia society like Iran converted its state to Islam. Never before Pakistan and Iran has there been a tradition in Islamic history of calling a state Islamic. Now this demand is being made even in Malaysia and Indonesia quite vigorously”....

    Ijtihad, Rethinking Islam

    Note: This is the story of Imtiaz Shams who says he has left Islam and is now helping others do the same. This young man has been a devout Muslim since his childhood. But now, an ex-Muslim. Having grown up in Saudi Arabia, he is like many other young Muslims, particularly in Turkey, who are leaving Islam, some to become Atheist or Christian, but mostly to become Deist, who believe in God but not in any religion. I think we Muslims should seek to understand this phenomenon as much as that of radical Islamism which is attracting tens of thousands of our children. Merely castigating them as crazy or apostate is not enough. This approach is not helpful at all. We should try to explore the roots of the problem. What is attracting some of our most intelligent, well-educated, youth, who are also well-versed in Islamic theology to violent extremism and some to altogether leaving the religion. Let us listen to Imtiaz Shams’s story and ponder. This might do us some good. – Editor

    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....
