Britain's Grooming Gang Crisis - Quillette
We cannot cure an illness before we have understood it. It is therefore important to be careful and nuanced. But I empathise with the frustration of those whose blood will boil on seeing those words. Like terrorism, this is a phenomenon that would not have existed on a comparable scale if not for the unprecedented top-down cosmopolitanism encouraged by the same political and media classes who now tactfully look the other way. Nuance was not a priority while that process was taking place, which is why its architects were tragically and appallingly unprepared to deal with its complications.

Across Myanmar, Denial of Ethnic Cleansing and Loathing of Rohingya
A couple of hours outside Yangon, the country’s largest city, U Aye Swe, an administrator for Sin Ma Kaw village, said he was proud to oversee one of Myanmar’s "Muslim-free" villages, which bar Muslims from spending the night, among other restrictions.
"Kalar are not welcome here because they are violent and they multiply like crazy, with so many wives and children," he said.
Mr. Aye Swe admitted he had never met a Muslim before, adding, "I have to thank Facebook because it is giving me the true information in Myanmar."

Adhan - Wikipedia
The adhan (Arabic: أَذَان‎ [ʔaˈðaːn]) (also called in Turkish: Ezan)[1] is the Islamic call to worship, recited by the muezzin at prescribed times of the day. The root of the word is ʾadhina أَذِنَ meaning "to listen, to hear, be informed about". Another derivative of this word is ʾudhun (أُذُن), meaning "ear".

Little known story of the Muslim community in Hanoi - News VietNamNet
In early 19th century, traders from India and the Middle East went to North Vietnam to purchase fabrics and exchange currency. According to statistics, in 1830, there were about 1,000 Indians in Indochina. They were wealthy merchants and held large market share of silk and cloth.

In Hanoi, they concentrated in Hang Dao Street, Hoan Kiem district today. To meet the religious needs, in 1885, the Indian community from Bombay (now Mumbai, India) raised money to build the Al Noor mosques.

Officially put into use in 1890. The mosque was quite small, with an area of about 700 m2, but the place of worship was built in the typical Islamic style, with a dome, the curved doors and the pinnacle.

After more than 100 years, the Muslim community in Hanoi has been changed in the number. In 1975, there were only 16 members. After the great exodus in the past, now the number has increased to 55, including about 26 households.

Doostdar, A.: The Iranian Metaphysicals: Explorations in Science, Islam, and the Uncanny (Hardcover, Paperback and eBook) | Princeton University Press
"What do the occult sciences, séances with the souls of the dead, and appeals to saintly powers have to do with rationality? Since the late nineteenth century, modernizing intellectuals, religious leaders, and statesmen in Iran have attempted to curtail many such practices as "superstitious," instead encouraging the development of rational religious sensibilities and dispositions. However, far from diminishing the diverse methods through which Iranians engage with the immaterial realm, these rationalizing processes have multiplied the possibilities for metaphysical experimentation.
"The Iranian Metaphysicals examines these experiments and their transformations over the past century. Drawing on years of ethnographic and archival research, Alireza Doostdar shows that metaphysical experimentation lies at the center of some of the most influential intellectual and religious movements in modern Iran. These forms of exploration have not only produced a plurality of rational orientations toward metaphysical phenomena but have also fundamentally shaped what is understood as orthodox Shi‘i Islam, including the forms of Islamic rationality at the heart of projects for building and sustaining an Islamic Republic.
"Delving into frequently neglected aspects of Iranian spirituality, politics, and intellectual inquiry, The Iranian Metaphysicals challenges widely held assumptions about Islam, rationality, and the relationship between science and religion."
