Mr Moderate clears up any misunderstandings

A letter dated 7th January 2007 from Shouaib Ahmed, Secretary General, Markazi Jamiat Ahl-e-Hadith UK to Andrew Smith of HardCash Productions Ltd, the C4 Dispatches programme maker - in which the SG is very concerned about bigotry and hatred. Only not the kind that is being spread in the mosques he attends. No - this would be the imagined kind that was expected after July 7th and never materialised etc etc. He also goes on to make it quite clear its ok to smack your wife and kids about a bit and that amputations are a very effective deterrant. No time to comment on all but have a read. Parts of the very long letter which does him no favours - below.

I am writing in response to your letter dated the 28th December 2006 which appears to have been written just when you knew we would be celebrating the ‘Id al-Adha, thereby giving us less time in which to respond to what in any case appears to be a programme whose content has already been decided.

Naturally I am surprised that you appear to have already more or less decided what words you are going to put into my mouth and that you did not even have the courtesy to request an interview with me so that my viewpoint could be included in your programme. In my humble opinion the mark of balanced investigative journalism is to do just this, to talk to everyone who is going to feature in an article or documentary, even if this means that some preconceived notions may prove to be unsustainable before they are aired.

If, which I hope is not the case, this is going to be just another attack on Islam and Muslims, which is very much in vogue nowadays, then I must remind you that if I or any member of my staff or anyone who worships at the Green Lane Mosque or the Mosque itself are subjected to any form of physical attack as a result of your programme then you, HardCash Productions Ltd and Channel 4 will all be liable to prosecution for incitement to commit a criminal act.

As regards corporal punishment, the teachings of Islam permit a light smack as a mark of disapproval, but never the violent physical abuse of either children or marriage partner ..

As regards amputations, whippings, and crucifixions, [...] Some of the hadd (fixed punishments) punishments in Islam work as an effective deterrent, even for those who do not fear Allah and the Last Day.

Has that cleared that up for everyone?

oh yeah it's crystal clear....

What is clear is the way they whine about being attacked by everyone When what they are calling an attack is exposure of what they are, but when the attack they self explode and kill women and children. I guess in their twisted reality it's a fair balance.

'Mr Moderate' should be asked when are his 'moderate' moslem friends going to protest about the daily bloody killing of ordinary Iraqi people. Iraqis trying to make a decent life for themselves, i.e.,queueing for jobs, attending university. Also maybe he would like to write to the MSM indicating his indignation at the plotting and scheming by members of his religion to blow up innocent people. Yeah put words in his mouth...and they should be 'stop the blood shed and join the 21st century" in the name of God/Allah.
