It’s helpful when reactionary theocrats spell out how reactionary and theocratic they are. There’s this guy Ghulam Esposito Haydar for instance. He’s not pleased that a liberal Muslim has been invited to speak at the Living Islam festival.
So at this years Living Islam, the ISB have invited a speaker from the BMSD.. who’s also a part of Tell Mama..
Don’t feel it’s appropriate. Wasn’t required. .
Really? He doesn’t want the founder of British Muslims for Secular Democracy there? So he disapproves of secularism and democracy, and thinks they’re not “appropriate” at such a festival?
Wow. Good to know.
His last comment on that post is even more informative.
I know fairly well who she is. She’s from the group ‘British Muslims for Secular Democracy’ & ‘Tell Mama’ as well. She’s pretty much against everything normative Islam stands for, and I mean the things that are agreed upon by the people who call themselves traditional Sufis, Salafis, Brewlvis, Deobandis, Ikhwanis, Ahlul Hadith, etc
So “normative Islam” is against democracy and secularism?
Good to know. I hope it gets taken over by people like Tasmina.
