Historically, Muslim intellectuals suggest that extremist interpretation of the Quran for political gain within Islam dated back to the Kharijites group who appeared in the 7th century Common Era.
The Kharijites established dangerous dogmas that distinguished them from both orthodox Sunni and Shi’a Muslims from their fundamentally political stance. The Kharijites as a group were predominantly renowned for espousing a deep-seated approach to takfir, through which they professed that other Muslims were disbelievers; hence, their blood can be shaded without recourse.
Additionally, the succeeding Muslim dynasties came to power using Islam as an umbrella to gain political leverage and interpreted the Quran to suit their political aspirations.
In essence, political Islamism is an ideology of resentment directed toward a prevailing order. So long as the political order remains closed, the militant insurgents will have a place in society. Their defiance of the oppressive order and their criticism of the stagnant autocratic rule will resonate with a populace segment.
For over six decades, a rebirth of an ideological movement called Islamism has been at war with the West.
Over these decades, militant groups under the pretext of establishing the Caliphate. Which in their mind is connect ed with an idealize Muslim past. The Militant groups have made worldwide headlines – on various occasions – due to their malicious terrorist attacks on the West in general and predominantly against Muslims whom they deemed opposing to their dogmas.
The rise of Political Islamists and militant groups in various parts of the Muslim world from South Asia, the Arabian Peninsula, the North African, the Sahel, Sub-Saharan, Horn of Africa, Europe, and Australia pose alarming threats to the global security and, more so, regional stability. These militants’ appeal stems from their ability to tap into and persuade marginalized communities, particularly youth, that their grievances can be rectified by establishing a more pure Islamist culture.
Justifications given for attacks on civilians by Islamic extremist groups come from extreme interpretations of the Quran and Hadith, and Islamic law. These include retribution by armed jihad for the perceived injustices of unbelievers against Muslims (especially by Al-Qaeda); the belief that the killing of many self-proclaimed Muslims is required because they have violated Islamic law and are actually disbelievers (kafir); the need to restore and purify Islam by establishing sharia law, especially by restoring the Caliphate as a pan-Islamic state (especially ISIS); the glory and heavenly rewards of martyrdom; the supremacy of Islam over all other religions.[Note 1].
