Congratulations, Sultan. Your bold criticism, against
OIC, that comprises 57 countries and more than a billion Muslims, is
commendable. Criticisms are vital to take a community to another level. You are
doing wonderfully. Certainly some OIC leaders will be infuriated at your
comments. You may be knowing that apart from Vatican Council I and II, Pope
regularly invite Bishops for meetings and conferences. Similarly Protestants’ World
Council of Churches, that comprise about 500 denominations, too have
conferences. These meetings, conferences and councils are all but self-criticism.
Unfortunately Islam does not enjoy such self-criticism. I don’t see any other
great Islamic leaders like Saudi’s MBS, Turkey’s Erdogan or Egypt’s el Sisi are
genuinely interested in lifting the Muslim community to a higher level. Their inaction, in this regard, is a hindrance
to the process of ecumenism or religious pluralism. For me, it looks you are
doing it alone. May Allah bless you and protect you.
