If you just tuned in, you will see how Iran's TL is full of images and videos of protests all over the country following the death of #Mahsa_Amini who was accused of improper wearing of Hijab.
Here are few thoughts. 1/
Since I attended late Shah funeral in Egypt, I developed deep interest in Iran, which increased immensely, after I visited the country years ago. Unlike Egyptians, the people of Iran fully understand the pain of living under an Islamists regime and have no illusions about it 2/
Protests against Islamic Republic is not new:
-1999 Students protests
-2009 Presidential election
-2011/12 protests (influenced by Arab spring)
-2018/19 strikes & protests against economic situation
-2021 uprising of thirsty due water shortage
All failed to uproot the regime 3/

Remembering the #SixDayWar, #Egypt didn’t just lose #Sinai, it lost its progressiveness and opened the gate to #Islamism that slowly controlled its society like a cancer that is hard to uproot.
We regained Sinai, but until we regain our modernity, Egypt will continue to struggle
Immediately after the #SixDayWar, Islamists creeped in, claiming that we lost the war, not because of reckless Nasser, but because #Egypt became godless decedent society. They preached that victory will only happen when women wear hijab, and religiosity dominate! 2/
In 1971, Sadat didn’t just release many Islamists imprisoned under Nasser, he changed the constitution, asserting that Islam is *the* source of all legislations.
This *the* is what Islamists still use to argue for enforcing Sharia on society.

One of many losers of the tragic murder of Palestinian journalist #Shereen_Abu_Aqleh is what I describe as Supremacist Islamism.
#Thread 1/
First let’s define it:
It is a hard core conservative vision of Islam that sees Muslims as superior to others, including Other Abrahamic faiths.
It also views every rule of Sharia as sacred tenant of the faith that can’t and shouldn’t be subjected to modern interpretation 2/
With the rise of Islamism in 70s, Supremacist preachers gain dominance and popularity in many Muslim countries including Egypt & Gulf states.
Sheikh Sharawi in Egypt was one example. His interpretations are still popular, but many didn’t take as suitable for modern era 3/

I always competed two countries which have been & still are effected by Islamist Terrorism.
Pakistan and Israel, but the matter is, Counter & Creator.

Israel is busy countering terrorism on her daily basis.
Pakistan still creates extremists for their political agenda. 1/
I completely agree with what @fawadchaudhry said in his tweet but the issue is, these time bombs have been and still are planting by the powerful institution of Pakistan.
#TLP was created to counter PML-N by Pak intelligence agency which is not hidden anymore in Pakistan. 2/
I agree that #ISI with the help of other foreign Intel services created #Jihadists & nurtured #Islamist ideology from Schools to Madrasahs in order to counter Communism in Afghanistan.
Two world economic powers, #Capitalism and #Communism fought their last war in #Afghanistan. 3/

It was meant to be a national holiday and a cultural festival of diversity, a festival that so many of us as non-Hindu but Bengali have shared for centuries in #Bangladesh My girlhood was informed by Sharodio Durga Puja.

Now this is scene for carnage. See @guardian by @HannahEP
Ironically there's so little discussion on the issue. The ethnic minorities in the Chittagong Hill Tracts have already been cleansed. We were silent about @SaveCHT.

Now we remain silent on Hindu cleansing. It's not sad.
It's Outrageous #Islamism #Hindus_Attacked_In_Bangladesh
Problem is that every time an incident like this happened we signed a statement and published as this 👇Some of us took to the streets for a few days or a week. But no policy follow-up…

News like these are anti-US propaganda and self-consolation. I don't think the #CCP politburo is celebrating this lol, they're just tryna manipulate public opinions against US.

US withdrawal from AFG is probably a risky strategic gamble. AFG neighbours are no longer free riders.
AFG neighbours such as China, Russia and Iran need to deal with the national security threats posed by Taliban's soft power (#islamism) and hard power (#jihadism). Taliban is never trustable, and they were one of the supporters of #Xinjiang islamist militants, according to China.
Apparently, China took down the government study as Taliban seizes power in Afghanistan. Here's the archive:…

لَبَّيْكَ اللهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ – لَبَّيْكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ لَبَّيْكَ – إِنَّ الْحَمْدَ وَالنِّعْمَةَ لَكَ وَالْمُلْكَ – لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ۔

For their militant designs & political relevance, #TLP has corrupted & innovated (بدت) the above Talbiyah recited by Muslims at Hajj & Umrah
Upon entering state of Ihram, Muslims recite Talbiyah & keep reciting it during Hajj or Umrah.
Its translation:
"At Your service Allah, at Your service. At Your service, You have no partner, at Your service. Truly all praise, favour and sovereignty is Yours. You have no partner."
What do #TLPterrorists keep reciting again and again?
لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ یا رسولﷲ؛ لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ یا رسولﷲ۔
Notice no pause for ﷺ and a vile nefarious attempt to associate our Holy Prophetﷺ as a partner to Allah SWT?
May Allah SWT Forgive us all!

@andreas_krieg has a sad habit of peddling third rate Qatari and Islamist propaganda. In this dismal essay he blames the UAE for “merging the narratives about ‘Islamism’ with ‘terrorism’.” I hate to break it to Krieg but #Islamism does indeed merge with #terrorism. I pity him.
After 30 years of experience with Islamist networks, I find it grotesque, distasteful, disingenuous, horrific that a whole cadre of superficially educated western scholars-for-hire continue to hold a candle for Islamist fascism and expect us Muslim to accept it. We will not.
The tactics and stunts of Islamist groups inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood are nothing new, so Krieg and his ilk need to stop pretending that all of us are oblivious to how Islamist networks function, support, interpenetrate, dovetail and coalesce with extremism and terrorism.

19 years after #TwinTowers atrocities, it is scary to see many in West, particularly in America, flirt & appease #Islamists and Islamism.
Islamism is NOT Islam; it is a sick ideology that must be fought.

Do not be fooled by cute Islamists posing as liberals folks!

#TwinTowers is not just terror attack by a terror group
Al-Qaeda is almost dead, but #Islamism is alive and will continue to produce sisters and cousins for AL-Qaeda.

The best way to honour #Remember911 is to stand against #Islamists, especially inside the U.S.
Today, most of American mosques are under the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood —the mother of all terror groups, spreading hatred and intolerance among Arab Americans.
While some Congresswomen and men whitewash Islamism

Another #AntiIndia #Hinduphobic development thanks to #Islamists, #WokeRadicals, and last but not the least @EqualityLabs

Here's @shambhav15 on these EL geniuses :
@EqualityLabs @shambhav15 That this farce was allowed to happen in #SiliconValley with thousands of Hindu Indian techies there speaks to their collective apathy to #Hinduphobia and #Islamism
Local Indian and Hindu associations should introspect and regroup to block further drama from these malicious parties.

#RIP Secular #Turkey
Goodbye #Musuem #HagiaSophia, the once was a place for harmony and tolerance—-before dogma and regression prevailed! ImageImage
The implications of #Erdogan’s decision to convert #HagiaSophia to a mosque are enormous.
For starter, who can stop #Israel now from using the Turkish precedent to convert Al-Aqsa mosque to a Jewish temple?
How about the endless mosques scattered around the globe that were once Churches and Temples?
Who can stop the tit-for-tat?

Revelation that #Muslims from #TablighiJamaat r wilful #superspreaders of #COVID19 in parts of India, highlights a bigger issue that secular, democratic (and diverse) societies like India face.
It should serve as a lesson for US & other democracies.
My take on this thread below-
Most democratic societies around the world (including US) used to turn a blind eye towards the activities by #TablighiJamat, because they thought (& some still think) that the "non-political nature of Tablighis" make them less likely to indulge in anti-state terror activities.
But the true pan-Islamic nature of #TablighiJamaat makes them one of the most efficient half-way-house for terror groups like #AlQaeda,#ISIS, et al, that actually indulge in anti-state activities.

Fascinating conversation @DandiaAsad @Simon_W_Fuchs on #Shiism in #Pakistan tradition and reform, decentering #Lucknow, rise of #Shii claims to Islam and not just content with polemical vernacularisation… 1/
And as @Simon_W_Fuchs says those #VernacularTracts volumes in the @BLAsia_Africa are really neglected treasure troves - just yesterday discovered three philosophical texts never seen before 2/
One of the key findings @Simon_W_Fuchs is the role of the scholarly debates in #Shii journals on the nature of religious authority demonstrating a dynamic and involved relationship between religious elites and communities in #Pakistan and in #Najaf… 3/
