Islam under attack by modern time crusaders

Modern crusaders are using ISIS to not only harm Islam, but they are also fanning enmity against Muslim communities.
It is a fact that some Western circles wanting to finish off Islam are involved in an all-out campaign to not only harm Islam but to totally eradicate it. These are the modern day crusaders.

Today, Islam, a religion of peace, tranquility and security, is being portrayed as the cause of evil and terrorism.

You only have to look at the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) to see what this is all about. ISIS stands for everything that is un-Islamic. ISIS is trying to legitimize its atrocities and barbarism through Islam, which is simply a clear indicator of who ISIS is serving.

You only have to look at the bombing in Ankara last Saturday that killed about 100 people and wounded more than 200 to see what ISIS is capable of.

It is high time the Islamic scholars and wise men came together and started telling the world what true Islam is all about. Yet we see with sadness that Muslim scholars and men of wisdom are as bewildered as we are in the face of the assaults against Islam. We cannot see any meaningful dialogue among them. We do not see any form of meaningful cooperation among them. All we see is goodwill messages and well wishes.

You only have to look at the disasters that were suffered during the hajj in Mecca to see the Islamic world is still far from getting its act together. We need a concerted effort but the lack of spirit of solidarity during the hajj incidents show we still have a long way to go.

Islamophobia is not only threatening Islam but it is seriously harming Islamic communities in Western countries. The modern day crusaders are not only using ISIS to harm Islam but they are also fanning enmity against Islamic communities in Europe.

This is a wakeup call.

Turkey's DİB has been making an effort to get people to cooperate, force religious leaders of various countries to unite their forces and counter disgusting organizations like ISIS. But this needs a lot of effort and solidarity.

Mehmet Görmez, the head of the Presidency of Religious Affairs (DİB) inaugurated the Asia and Pacific Countries Muslim Religious Leaders Summit in Istanbul yesterday calling on the Muslims of the world to unite against the ongoing threats targeting Islam.
Let us hope the summit in Istanbul serves this purpose.

A historic moment in the Arab world

لحظة تاريخية في العالم العربي
As a democratic revolution led by tech-empowered young people sweeps the Arab world, Wadah Khanfar, Al Jazeera's director-general, shares a profoundly optimistic view of what's happening in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and beyond. In the first talk posted online from the TED 2011 conference in California, Khanfar describes the powerful moment when people realised they could step out of their homes and ask for change. "كما ثورة ديمقراطية بقيادة الشباب التكنولوجيا ذات صلاحيات تجتاح العالم العربي ، وضاح خنفر ، الجزيرة المدير العام والأسهم وجهة نظر متفائلة بشكل كبير ما يحدث في مصر وتونس وليبيا وخارجها. وفي اول حديث له نشر على الانترنت من مؤتمر تيد 2011 في ولاية كاليفورنيا ، خنفر يصف لحظة قوية عند الناس أدركت أنها لا يمكن الخروج من منازلهم ونطلب من أجل التغيير."

Our Captured, Wounded Hearts: Arundhati Roy On Balakot, Kashmir And India

With his reckless “pre-emptive” airstrike on Balakot in Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inadvertently undone what previous Indian governments almost miraculously, succeeded in doing for decades. Since 1947 the Indian Government has bristled at any suggestion that the conflict in Kashmir could be resolved by international arbitration, insisting that it is an “internal matter.” By goading Pakistan into a counter-strike, and so making India and Pakistan the only two nuclear powers in history to have bombed each other, Modi has internationalised the Kashmir dispute. He has demonstrated to the world that Kashmir is potentially the most dangerous place on earth, the flash-point for nuclear war. Every person, country, and organisation that worries about the prospect of nuclear war has the right to intervene and do everything in its power to prevent it.  Keep reading  >>>>

India has built around itself an aura of a global power whose time has come. For at least the last t…

Kashmir Jihad - Analysis & Options


Kashmir is an incomplete agenda of partition of India. Since 1947, India and Pakistan have fought three wars on this issue. According to UN resolutions, Kashmiris have to decide their accession to Pakistan or India through impartial plebiscite, which could not take place due to Indian reluctance. Recently, India revoked Article 370 of the Constitution, which granted special autonomous status to Kashmir, it was done to unilaterally integrate occupied Kashmir. This is a violation of the UN resolutions and the Simla bilateral agreement, which demands to maintain status quo until the final settlement. The US and world powers are emphasizing that Kashmir should be resolved bilaterally, though India has refused to hold talks with Pakistan. In the present scenario, while India has turned Kashmir into the largest prison of 9 million people, denying basic human rights and oppressing the Kashmiris' who want freedom from India, Pakistan cannot watch as a silent spec…
