(Bad) Jot - ‘Bridge’ thing

Reform Islam, Muslim coexistence in Europe, USA etc.

Paradigm really needs to shift. Or have one more. 

1 ) How Muslims are thinking about/being lead(guided) about it - is one certain thing. 

But doing that alone doesn’t make much sense. 

We need next paradigm. (Hope it’s already around???)

2 ) Are Muslims and non-Muslims having satisfactory communications and interactions - for all the issues at stake - for both or all sides. 

Communications and interactions - buzzing and humming? Informing, dissolving, building bonds, updating issues etc - between Muslims and non-Muslims. 

Not only about - how much reform talks and thoughts held and updated ‘within’ Muslims.

  1. I am aware of his issues. Past remarks. And current way of ‘writing’. 
  2. Moderate - or ‘Reform’ Islam still are not in shape - in my view. 
  3. But - long term view? I’m taking.
  4. That he still has 30 years to keep going.
  5. And in that while, something more sharp and critical can take place.
  6. He is a first ‘attempting’ generation - in my categorization. Following generations will have something much more sharper and clear. At least few or some will come out that way.
  7. Critical of MENA cultures, critical of modern Islam and political Islam - and also of ‘West’ (and even how ‘Left’ affecting the qualities of dissenting voices coming out of (educated) Muslims etc) 
  8. Those sharper really clear voices (thinkers, artists, or just ‘people’ kind/type) will come out. Even few. But sharp enough. 
  9. I’m seeing enough voices here on Tumblr. Not many. Never majority. But few and those individuals are sharp and keen enough. 
  10. They will cut through clutters and fudges - we are still muffed about, or fudging.
  11. I have no doubt on that. 
  • I really don’t consider him - yet - educated enough to talk about - those his (pet?) subjects - often done by borrowing Western intellectual traditions. 
  • That’s the reasons you get all these strange metaphors deployed all across his writings. 
  • But that kind of stuff will improve. By him. And also by others (they will probably show up.) 
  • As he repeats - it’s about intention or principle - direction - not ‘(current) models and codes’ you or we are stuck with. 
  • And as he says or implies? - these sort of stuff can’t be done by one guy chivalry - takes historical time and changes - including shits in changes in voices and general intellectual climate - 
  • what kind of books are selling and read - 
  • one or two more round of such ‘homogeneity’ have to pass us - 
  • til we get real clear, reliable and thorough representations of voices on subjects currently his types are dealing with.
