The Intellectual History of Ummah and Pan-Islamism: Seminar Lecture by Prof. Cemil Ayedin

The Intellectual History of Ummah and Pan-Islamism: Seminar Lecture by Prof. Cemil Ayedin

As per Professor Cemil, the contemporary notion of Pan-Islamism has been boiled down to some simplified tenets throughout the 18th century: a) Creation of an Islamic state b) Forming global Islamic unity and c) the narrative of ‘clash of civilizations’. He highlighted the problem with this simplification was primarily that a lot of Muslims themselves have bought into these pervasive and popular narratives. He juxtaposed them with examples of sub-altern literature, citing the work of Malek Bennabi, an Algerian philosopher and author. Bennabi was very critical of the Timurid empire, and believed that it was their attack on the Ottomans resulting in the Battle of Ankara (1402), that may have otherwise prevented or delay European expansionism into the region.

The colonial world order is responsible for the Rohingya crisis

Myanmar has become a sad story of state violence against its own religious community who are shamefully still waiting to be recognized as citizens. Issues intensified once again in the recent conflicts left unresolved by the outgoing British colonial administration and the successive administrations in Myanmar, Bangladesh and India. The Rakhine region, for its geographical and strategic location, remained a battleground during the world war period, and both British allies and the Japanese fought many wars in the region to control the important coastline. Britain captured most of the Muslim dominated areas that were then called Arakan, in 1824, which started economic activities across the region and brought more Indians to the region.
