Saudi worse than Modi

The act of ex-communication (of the Muslim Brotherhood by the Saudis) in its sinfulness quotient ranks even higher than genocide (of muslims). This is the considered opinion of one of the top-most ranked Ulemas in the world.

Is there any method in this madness? Is it truly the case that an insult to the faith (and the faithful) is more significant than the taking of (innocent) lives? It is indeed fortunate that we have now Thane Richard to guide us past these treacherous moral sinkholes.

As an aside, this reinforces my point about Indian muslims (only elites count in such discussions) sharing the same world-view as their brothers in the Ummah. Now that the I-M management has taken the lead in such an emphatic fashion, the opinion makers elsewhere will surely follow.  

The king is dead, long live the Caliph (Sheikh Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi to give him a name) !!!

Describing the government of Saudi Arabia as more 'zalim' (cruel) than Narendra Modi, Nadwatul Ulema in Lucknow cancelled its March 16 appointment with a delegation from the Islamic kingdom as a mark of protest against its decision to declare Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

The institute has compared Saudi Arabia's move to tag Muslim Brotherhood as an act "more cruel than the genocide of hundreds of Muslims in 2002 that was allegedly led by then chief minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi".

Official reason assigned for the cancellation of this trip was described as a move in line with the institute's commitment towards the religion, community and reformative ideology. Nadwatul Ulema happens to be one of the most renowned Islamic University in Asia.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had on March 7 designated Muslim Brotherhood (MB) as a terrorist group. The kingdom had also downgraded diplomatic ties with Qatar as a mark of protest against their support towards MB. On Sunday, the United Arab Emirates also lined up behind Saudi Arabia and its decision to recognize MB as a terror outfit.

Saudi Arabia listed the 86-year-old Brotherhood with al-Qaida and its affiliates which are categorized as terrorist organizations and as per the Saudi Arabian law, anyone who joins or supports these banned groups could face imprisonment ranging from five to 30 years under the new Saudi Arabian government policy.
