  • If Hats Off is not a lumpen element, he certainly is a tireless besmircher of moderate Muslims. Of all the apostatic websites available to him on the internet he can't find one to vent his venom. He wants to bare his fangs on New Age Islam!

  • the two most inscrutable kinds of religious wingnuts are
    a) the extremist moderates
    b) the moderate extremists

    the real night mares are those who do not know where they belong. so john lennon tells them, "get back!"

    "get back to where you once belonged"

    an emigrant from a female genital mutilation country is really lost when they start telling him that the most regressive of his practices are actually freedoms of conscience and religion.

    but they never tell him whose conscience and whose religion.

    but he tells the world that every murderous edict must be respected because it might hurt his egg-shell-religious-sensitivities.

    the child needs to get home. the parent needs to pipe down and the adult needs to practice honesty.

  • Dear Ghulam Mohiyuddin Saheb, you say: "To insist that religions are stuck in that time frame serves the lumpen elements who have made badmouthing religions their religion."
    I don't think these people can be dismissed as lumpen elements. If that were the case, it would be much easier for the rest of the communities, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, etc to deal with them.

  • Hats Off says, "absolute, unconditional belief as demanded by all religions (at the pain of excommunication, damnation or death) can never be pawned off as "rational"."

    To insist that religions are stuck in that time frame serves the lumpen elements who have made badmouthing religions their religion.

  • Charles Taylor writes in A Secular Age: "in human history, you come to archaic societies in which the whole set of distinctions we make between the religious, political, economic, social, etc., aspects of our society ceases to make sense . In these earlier societies, religion was “everywhere”, 2 was interwoven with everything else, and in no sense constituted a separate “sphere” of its own."
    Probably this 'everywhereness' of the religion in case of many Muslims is keeping them from maintaining a balance. 
    Overall, a good article. Muslims should adhere to maintaining a balance in all walks of life. 
    As it happens, I spoke extempore on this same subject, using the same quotes, to buttress my arguments, in a parallel UNHRC event. I was thinking of penning it down. But now there is no need. Thank you, Kaniz Fatimah.

  • rationality is based upon doubting.

    absolute, unconditional belief as demanded by all religions (at the pain of excommunication, damnation or death) can never be pawned off as "rational".

    belief based on rationality is temporary. just for as long as a better set of evidence comes along.

    not the case with religion. especially if what you are stuck with is a final and only religion acceptable to some obscure god.

    religion is fact-free, evidence-free and is basically enforced by threats of damnation. either here or in the hereafter. how can you squeeze rationality into that?

    to pretend that discordant "beliefs" can ever live in peace is not to be moderate, but only a means of closing your eyes and drinking up the milk. sure that no one can see you as you cannot see anyone.

  • Extremism in religion springs from blind faith. Belief based on rationality and an understanding that no one has the monopoly on truth conduce to healthy moderation.

  • Nice article but in Ma'ariful Quran - Tafsir by Usmani sb many things are objectionable.
