    by: Seyyed Hosseyn Nasr

    Nonostante la presenza della violenza in molte regioni del mondo a partire dall’Irlanda al Libano fino al bacino del Pacifico e coinvolgente molte religioni dal Cristianesimo all’Induismo, il mondo occidentale associa l’Islam, più di ogni altra religione, con la violenza. La conquista musulmana della Spagna, le Crociate – che non furono cominciate dai Musulmani – e la dominazione ottomana dell’Europa orientale hanno prodotto un ricordo dell’Islam legato alla forza e al potere.

    "Today, world peace is such that all countries are under the political influence of the superpowers; they observe a control everywhere and have schemes for defeating every group. The most important of these is sowing discord among brothers. 

    Muslims should be awake, Muslims should be alert that if a dispute takes place among Sunni and Shi'ite brothers, it is harmful to all of us, it is harmful to all Muslims. Those who want to sow discord are neither Sunni nor Shi'ite, they are agents of the superpowers and work for them.

  • In Pakistan we have Selective Islam
    by: Imran Khan

    In the name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Merciful

    My generation grew up at a time when the colonial hang up was at its peak. Our older generation had been slaves and had a huge inferiority complex of the British. The school I went to was similar to all the elite schools in Pakistan, despite becoming independent, they were, and still are, producing replicas of English public school boys rather than Pakistanis. I read Shakespeare which was fine, but no Iqbal.
