More on the fury at Maajid Nawaz.
There’s an exceedingly vivid and nasty threat, for one thing.
I would be glad to cut your neck off, so your kufr friends won’t be amused by your humour.In sha Allah may my dua get accepted
That account is now gone, so that’s something, but still – what a revolting sentiment.
Via Homo economicus’s blog, Nawaz’s response to all the shouting:
Shiraz Socialist has a post In defense of Maajid Nawaz.
5Pillarz, a blog written largely by and for British Muslims, has decided that Nawaz should be their top candidate for ‘Islamophobe of the Year’. The EDL is mentioned at the bottom of their list of suggestions, as a kind of afterthought.
As Maajid Nawaz says:
“Why are many on the “Left” largely silent on Muslim reformers. Want to defend minorities? Well, we’re a minority within a minority, defend us”
As someone from the ‘Left’ I’m happy to defend and support Maajid Nawaz – though I’d draw the line at voting for him.
All this, because a cartoon.
