Dr Zafarul-Islam Khan on 'Islamic Extremism'

This is the text of a lecture was delivered at the 3-day International Conference on 'How to Understand and Co-exist with Radical Islam' at RCA Girls PG College, Virindavan, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, on 18 November, 2015.The author, Dr. Zafarul-Islam Khan is the Editor of The Milli Gazette, New Delhi.

Dr Zafarul Islam KhanThe theme of this international conference is “How to Understand and Co-exist with Radical Islam.” But when I read the concept paper, or the brochure, it became clear from the very first paragraph that the issue at hand is “Islamic terrorism” and that, in the view of the writer of the concept paper, the only terror that exists in the world or should be fought is the Islamic or Muslim terror. The concept paper also tells us in the very first paragraph that “The terrorists are immersed in Islamic history and doctrine.” The concept paper then goes on to say that “The world had yet to devise a strategy to understand, manage or counter the menace,” and that “We either have to score a victory in this war, which at the moment appears not possible… or have to design a framework to learn to co-exist with this growing global militant threat.”
