Here I do my duty as a sane human being by pointing out the absurdity that is the very prolific, Islamic scholar Maulana Imran Hosein. Let me just note what this particular ‘alim wants to do: Establish a Muslim village in Trinidad and Tobago.
Speaking of the plan yesterday Maulana Imran Hosein said it was born of the need to protect and preserve Islam from the ills of society such as alcohol, fornication, adultery, illegitimate children, homosexuality, lesbianism and murders.
He said there would be no mansions and since toilets were considered unclean places, buildings in the village will have no toilets.
What Islam is this? This pure, antiseptically clean Islam that shuns toilets? The proposer of this grand idea is the ex-khateeb of Friday sermons at the United Nations mosque in Manhattan. He lived in NY until Sep 2001. You can read his brilliant take on that as well.
I do not like ad hominem attacks. I hate calling people names. I do not believe that anything is served by me calling this guy a wacko. He can believe the Martians are responsible for Islam’s woes. I do not care. But this guy has a following. People listen to him. Heck, all the people praying at the UN mosque listened to him for 10 years. And he is espousing such bigoted hatred, such millennialism as some Grand Elder of Islam. That is why I believe it is crucial to point out the absurdity of his claims. To be fair, the Muslim community in Trinidad has rejected this village with no toilets, murder or smoking. But what to do about Imam Hosein? Should we have a public rating system for Imams? Less than 2 stars and you are OUT. sigh.
At the very least, we can expose them for what they are.
