Academic career[edit]

Moinul Hassan comes forward to reciprocate the true meaning of Islamism to those who have started identifying Islam with the sporadic incidents carried out by some separatist radicals in the name of Islam. Moinul Hassan, in his editorial, has very efficiently depicted the requisiteness of an integrated apprehension of this religion. Unfortunately the propensity nowadays is to apprehend the Quran by its few isolated perspectives like war, jihad, enemy country etc. which have been very insignificantly mentioned in this holy book. At the time of crisis of Islam, his books successfully bring out some very important issues regarding its relevance in today’s world, and discuss at length its concordance with different phenomena in the world history and how this religion evolved through such events.
