Islam and the West
Friday, Jun 05 2009








We
meet at a time of great tension between the United States and Muslims
around the world, tension rooted in historical forces that go beyond
any current policy debate. The relationship between Islam and the
West includes centuries of coexistence and cooperation but also
conflict and religious wars.

More
recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and
opportunities to many Muslims and a Cold War in which Muslim majority
countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own
aspirations. Moreover, the sweeping change brought by modernity and
globalization led many Muslims to view the West as hostile to the
traditions of Islam.

Violent
extremists have exploited these tensions in a small but potent minority
of Muslims. The attacks of September 11, 2001, and the continued
efforts of these extremists to engage in violence against civilians has
led some in my country to view Islam as inevitably hostile not only to
America and western countries but also to human rights.

All
this has bred more fear and more mistrust. So long as our relationship
is defined by our differences, we will empower those who sow hatred
rather than peace, those who promote conflict rather than the
cooperation that can help all of our people achieve justice and
prosperity. And this cycle of suspicion and discord must end.

I've
come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States
and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual
respect, and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not
exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap and
share common principles, principles of justice and progress, tolerance
and the dignity of all human beings.

I do so recognizing that change cannot happen overnight. – US President Barack Obama, addressing the Muslim World from Cairo




Islam and Pluralism







Montreal:
Buddhism and Islam are two religions we do not hear mentioned in one
breath very often. So it was with great excitement that I went to
attend the conference, Buddhism & Islam – Encounters, Histories,
Dialogue and Representation held at McGill University, May 29 and 30,
2009. The conference indeed turned out to be eye-opening. …



This
conference gave a much needed comparative religious perspective. More
such efforts are needed to bring out the fact that most religious
people when left to themselves are able to live together in a
collaborative and cooperative way, enriching all the cultures and
religions involved. This ‘cultural translation’ is an ongoing process,
in spite of the hoopla surrounding fundamentalisms of all sorts today.

Islam,Terrorism and Jihad







In
the early 1980s, Hafiz Saeed joined the mujahidin war in Afghanistan
which also brought him into close contact with Abdullah Azzam and Osama
bin Laden. Their ‘dedication to jihad’ inspired him immensely. ‘Osama
was a man of extraordinary qualities,’ he recalled. (10) Azzam, a
Palestinian who had worked as a professor of Islamic jurisprudence at
the University of Jordan in Amman had a huge influence on Hafiz Saeed.
… Azzam helped Hafiz Saeed establish Markaz Dawal al-Irshad (MDI), an
organization for Islamic preaching and guidance which was ideologically
affiliated with wahabi Ahle Hadith. …

Hafiz
Saeed founded LeT in 1990, soon after the withdrawal of Soviet forces
from Afghanistan, as a military wing of the MDI to wage jihad against
the Indian authorities in Kashmir. The LeT announced its arrival on the
Kashmir jihad scene on 5 February 1993 with a ferocious attack on an
Indian military force in Poonch district that killed at least two
soldiers. Two of the guerrillas were also killed. Since then the outfit
has been responsible for hundreds of guerrilla raids in the disputed
territory. Within a short span, LeT emerged as the fiercest militant
organization—it possessed not only thousands of well trained and highly
motivated fighters, but also a huge propaganda network. Its main
publications in different languages had a circulation of hundreds of
thousands. Its main publication, Al-Dawat, had more than 80,000 copies
printed and sold at major bookshops across the country. (13). LeT had
worked in close coordination with the ISI, which also provided support
to launch the militants across the border.

LeT’s
main stress was on jihad against Hindus, who it regarded as the worst
polytheists, and against Jews who it claimed were ‘singled out by the
Qur’an as the enemies of Islam’. LeT leaders maintained that Hindus and
Jews were their main targets because they were ‘the enemies of Islam
and Pakistan’. (26) A party document, ‘Why are we waging jihad’, argued
that jihad was the only way to avenge history and re-establish the lost
glory of Islam. It vowed to take back Spain, where Muslims had ruled
for 800 years, and to re-establish Muslim rule in India. It said that
LeT was fighting to liberate not just Kashmir, but the whole of India.
It was one of the reasons why LeT’s attacks against Hindus had been so
savage. In many cases the victim were beheaded. In December 2000 LeT
extended its jihad from Kashmir to mainland India. – renowned Pakistani journalist and author Zahid Husain
