The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has been leading the peaceful revival of the true Islam for 126 years now and constantly warns the world of the dire consequences of turning away from Godliness and good morals.

We must understand that the only way to defeat the ISIS narrative is by providing a reformist counter-narrative that is based on intellectual honesty and truth. Such a narrative exists. Let us support it, not fight it.

There is another leading figure in the Muslim world, who along with his followers is forging a path of reconciliation in these perilous times. He too is a Khalifa, but the Khilafat he represents is very different to the one of ISIS.

Ahmadiyya Apartheid and the Quest for Tolerance

The rise of the educated Ahmadis who profess a pluralistic, peaceful version of Islam is problematic. The power of the Mullah rests on getting people riled up, ready to give their lives for their faith.

I am an American. I have a full-time job in one of Greater Boston's renowned institutions as a medical professional. Yet, I just travelled out of the United States a few days ago to renew my pledge of allegiance to the caliphate.

To my Muslim family, you know Ramadan starts on June 18 this year. Many in the West believe it's a month when we abstain from food and drink during daytime. That's true. But in reality, Ramadan is about abstaining from all carnal desires, not just food. It's a spiritual flight requiring us to follow certain protocols.

Muslims must remember that no Usama Dakdok or Pamela Gellar can ever take away anything from Islam, but violence in the name of Islam will certainly empower them to spread their hatred towards it.

The Inconvenient Truth About ISIS

How did a rogue band of radicals with such a destructive ideology appear so suddenly and gain such influence in such a rapid timeframe? The answer is an inconvenient truth -- but it is one we must accept. ISIS exists due to both unjust Western imperialism, and unjust Muslim majority governments. To stop ISIS requires reversing this trend.

When these gunmen and others like them take innocent lives, no matter who they are, because of mere mockery against the Prophet, then they should know that his example was different.

An Ahmadi Muslim's Open Challenge to Amir Liaqat

Qasim Rashid | Posted 03.09.2015 | Religion

Here is my challenge to Amir Liaqat. If you are sincere that your religion forbids you from hating anyone, or wishing death upon anyone, and if you are sincere that you want to give Ahmadi Muslims a voice -- then prove it with your actions.

Muslims: You Must Break Free of Captivity

Qasim Rashid | Posted 02.27.2015 | Religion

The same clerics who stand to lose everything if the Muslim masses turn away from them took yet another cowardly and barbaric step to ensure they keep their masses captive -- either mentally, physically, morally, and spiritually.

In gauging the responses to my writing, I have a personal rule: don't just look at what is being written, but why it is being written.

An Honest Open Letter to Moderate Muslims

You've likely heard the old saying, "You can't wake up someone pretending to be asleep." This thoughtful proverb crossed my mind as I read new atheist Ali Rizvi's letter, which I can only assume is addressed you and I.

Why a Muslim and an Atheist Are Fighting Side by Side

We are inviting everyone -- not just Ahmadi Muslims and atheists -- to join us and let us build some novel unity between our untrusted, and often marginalized, groups and to take the fight for universal freedom of conscience a step further.

Pakistan's Second Amendment is Root Cause of Sectarianism

Kashif N. Chaudhry | Posted 11.30.2014 | Politics

Forty years ago this day, Pakistan passed the second amendment to its Constitution, forcibly declaring the Ahmadis non-Muslim. It was this day that Pakistan started drifting away from the vision of its valiant founder.

The Key to Defeating ISIS

ISIS is bad ideology and the best cure for bad ideas are better ideas. The obvious question, therefore, is does a superior version of Islam exist today and if so, where is it?

Who can argue that greed and deceit has polluted the religions of the world? Islam is no exception. Because of their fear of losing power and control, Muslim leaders have shown shameful complacency and duplicity.

Notwithstanding that the overwhelming majority of Muslims loathe terrorism, the myth that only Muslims engage in extremism falls flat on its face with a cursory review of any US State Department Report, FBI Report, or Human Rights Watch Report.

Does the Koran Endorse Apostasy Laws?

Kashif N. Chaudhry | Posted 08.31.2014 | Religion
Kashif N. Chaudhry

Muslims consider the Koran the word of God. Hence, it is the primary and supreme source of jurisprudence in Islam. The practice of Prophet Muhammad, Sunnah, is second in line. Both leave no doubt that apostasy is not a punishable offense at all, let alone by death.

If "Islamist" means one's admiration for the values of an Islamic system of governance, it would make the founder of Islam and his companions Islamists of the highest order. So how will visitors walk away without associating Islam with extremism?

Like other American communities, the Muslim-American community condemned the actions of the Tsarnev brothers right away. The actions of the two brothers were not just an attack on Americans and our values, but also on the values of the Islamic faith.

I Left 'America' for Its Hatred of Muslims... This Is My Story

I often wondered why there was not a single Christian student, out of the thousands at Harvard, who had the moral integrity to tear down the hate stickers on campus -- hate stickers that openly attacked me for being Muslim.

Today, Pakistan is the only country in the world to deny a section of its citizens the basic human right to identity. Ahmadi Muslims are forbidden calling themselves Muslim by the State's constitution.
