Pervez Hoodbhoy the Hypocrite

جون 1, 2010

In an interview with Buddhist/Atheist Dr. Khalid Sohail, Pervez Hoodbhoy acknowledges that he is a munafiq and says that his guru Eqbal Ahmad was one too and did not believe in the existence of God or in the Quran or the Angels or the Day of Judgement right upto the time of his death (May Allah protect us all from such a state):

Sohail: Your book, your articles and speeches make you appear as a Muslim scholar, Muslim scientist. Why do you not leave the religious podium and speak completely on secular terms?

Pervez: Well, that is a very vexing question. I think if you want to have any degree of credibility with people whose destiny you want to change, then you cannot say, “I am not one of you”. The reality is I was born a Muslim. I was for a while a very strongly practicing Muslim. All of us were brought up in a Muslim tradition. We cannot completely cut ourselves off from our roots. Let me tell you a story about Iqbal Ahmed. When he was dying, Raza Qazim’ s wife, who adored him, stood outside the room and read Quran for hours. When I informed Iqbal Ahmed. He invited her in and asked her to sit down. She was reading Quran even when inside. At one point I scribbled a note asking Iqbal Ahmed if I could request her to stop. He shook his finger, asking me not to do that. Later on when she left, I asked him, ‘Why did you tolerate this? You are not a Muslim’.  “Of course I am,” he said.  “No, you are not,” I insisted. “You don’t believe in Allah, the Quran, angels or the Day of Judgment”.  “Yes, I am,” he still insisted. “I was born a Muslim and I will always remain that”. Although he never made any supplications to God, never asked for forgiveness, yet to the very end, he felt he was rooted in the culture he had lived in. I think it is a dilemma we all have. Though we may not believe in it, yet we were born in something and that something stamps us forever. So we are Secular Muslims.

Husain Haqqani: Enemy of the Ummah

اپریل 19, 2010

Haqqani presents the occupation of Muslim holy lands as primarily an `Arab not a Muslim cause. He denigrates the importance of al-Quds to the Ummah. He presents the Jewish lobby which more or less controls US foriegn policy as a beleaguered lot forced to confront the awesome influence of the Saudis. He endangers the Muslims in America by characterizing their advocacy groups as extremists.

Haqqani is presently a co-Chair at the Center on Islam, Democracy and the Future of the Muslim World established at the Hudson Institute by the neoconservative Hillel Fradkin.

Previously he has collaborated with another neocon pundit, Stephen Schwartz on the Institute for Islamic Progress and Peace, a project of the notorious Islamophobe Daniel Pipes[1]. While on a tour Schwartz to promote the think tank, both were reported attacking mainstream American Muslim organizations. They claimed that "[e]xtremists dominate all of the major Muslim advocacy groups”. According to the Cleveland Jewish News, Haqqani said:

There are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world and only 18% of them are Arabs, Haqqani points out. In the U.S., only 200,000 of the 4 million Muslims are Arabs. Furthermore, only one-third of the Arabs in the U.S. are Muslim. A little more than half of one percent of American Muslims are Palestinian.

"Yet Muslim leadership in America focuses on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as its core issue,”…

Haqqani and Schwartz then went on to say:

The Jewish lobby has to organize, write letters, and continue to contribute to politicians to counter the Saudi lobby, which has extraordinary influence in Washington [4]

"FLOWER DAY”

Believe it or not; Before the Wahhabi heresy raised its head, the Sunni orthodoxy were liberal pacifists! The traditional response to kafir aggression is to hold a flower day and invite everyone to a Hadra!

The "But the Hadith is Dhanni” Crowd

جولائی 21, 2008

Yeah, the Hadith is dhanni and on the other hand fanciful innovated tafaseer of the Quran from your "Allamahs” and "doctors” with which you counter the hadith, those are completely qati’i right?
