A hundred years later, this seems a relevant basis for an effective counteroffensive. But before we can solve the problem we must learn to recognise it. Fudge will not serve.

The rationale for contemporary Islamist violence was first provided by two doctrinaires, Shah Waliullah in Mughal Delhi and Muhammad ibn Abd-al Wahhab in Ottoman Arabia. They were born in the same year, 1703, and watched a historic comfort zone crumble. Their prescription (restricted for Sunni Muslims) was simple and stern: Allah had not abandoned Muslims; Muslims had forsaken Allah.
Muslims had slipped into decadence, compromising purity of practice in prayer and trust in the sharia; their behaviour and dress had been corrupted by other cultures, whether it was Hinduism in India or the growing influence of Europe among Ottoman elites.
Their rulers no longer believed in the supremacy of Islam, chosen by God as the final testament for this world. The umma no longer displayed the courage to grow a religious beard, proclaim the faith, or pick up the sword — or a gun in Paris, a bomb in Peshawar — in defence of Islam.
Ironically, this revisionism went against innumerable tenets of the Quran, which advocate acceptance of other faiths, particularly “people of the Book”, and explain why Christian communities like the Yazidis continued to live in Muslim Iraq for 1,400 years until the supremacists of ISIS began their rape, pillage and murder of the “infidel”.
But as a sense of loss, and fear of the future, intensified, the ideas of exclusivity, separation and dream of dominance began to gather momentum in the 20th century.The warriors of this Islamic jihad are the masked vanguard of a movement that found its spurs in the 19th century, when the last two Muslim empires, the Mughal and the Ottoman, began to wither and then die. Behind the masks is a supply chain that, like all religious extremism, is magnetised by inspiration beyond the control of boundaries.A decisive battle between modernity and regression is fought in Malaysia before 1945.PAS used, often and provocatively, the rhetoric of superiority in its pursuit of Islam.offered the counter-narrative, that true strength lay in faith equality, not faith supremacy. For him, dharma represented the underlying truth common to every religion. The singular duty of the state was to enshrine freedom of faith as a basic right; the citizen was enjoined to treat every faith with equal respect.

Presidents come, presidents go. As do prime ministers in parliamentary systems. But can liberal democracy, once it has established firm roots, go on inexorably as the winning solution for organising society in an orderly, if hardly perfect, structure at “the end of history”?With the end of the Cold War and the subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union, Francis Fukuyama’s bold assertion was that the history of argument over the validity of liberal democracy had ended. It was the end of history in that sense. The only workable system of structuring society was a framework of democracy guided by the light of liberalism.

Politicians who come to power feeding and feeding off a majority’s imagined sense of victimhood have to genuflect, once in a while, to the bogey they rode but would, if they have sense, concentrate their energies, having assumed power, on building up an alternative
Hitler chose to persist with the Jews, pursuing their extermination to the Holocaust and associated politics by other means across the globe.
