It’s politically antiquated to keep asking why the regimes in Muslim-majority countries are not standing with Kashmiris, Rohingya, Uyghur, & the millions of other Muslims facing war, occupation, genocide. The repression of the Arab Spring uprisings by the governments of Egypt, Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, now Iraq, the repression of the Turkey, Iran, & other regimes make it absolutely clear that there is a massive disconnect between the regimes in Muslim-majority countries & the political, economic, & social aspirations of their citizens.

Those repressive governments are not guided by a commitment to Islam but by capitalist realpolitik. To suggest theses murderous regimes are guided by Islam impugns the faith of those millions of Muslims in the leadership of fighting inequality, repression, & war.
