Islamic reformation

Islamic reformation

by Saad Hafiz It is hard to dispute that there is a cancer of extremism within Islam today. Groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the Taliban reinforce a particularly harsh description of Islam as terrorist-prone, modernity-proof, plagued by fanaticism and susceptible to the hellish clarion call of jihad. The frequent incidents of beheading, suicide bombing and lynching confirm that a section of Muslims celebrate violence and intolerance and harbour deeply reactionary … Read entire article »

Remembering Shahbaz Bhatti, an unsung hero of Pakistan

Raza Rumi Fate connected me to Salma Peter John – the widow of Pakistan’s slain Christian Minister Shahbaz Bhatti who was assassinated by violent extremists. I cried then and cried yesterday after speaking to brave Salma and watching this video. I share your grief and stand by you. There is no reason that Cammy should have died, no justification but Pakistan and its negligent state enabled this killing. He was a bright man whenever I met him. At least I have the consolation that I will meet Salma in a few weeks and do whatever little I can to turn her grief into the voice that condemns injustice. All these instances of losing Mustafa, my driver-friend-family-member and so many others I know has only taught me one thing. No need to … Read entire article »
