Invitation to a Debate
 
Sep 4, 2006
During the recent years Islam has become the target of sever criticism andvilification not just by members of other religions but by a growing number of ex-Muslims. The Internet has allowed these critics to come out and speak their minds at an alarming rate. These criticisms have had devastating effect on theminds of the Muslim youths who unable to answer the critics on their own are bewildered that the Islamic scholars also have not come forth with satisfactoryanswers.In the interest of unraveling the truth about Islam and clearing the minds of theyoung Muslims I am formally inviting the Islamic critic Ali Sina and the modernPakistani ‘state appointed’ Islamic Scholar Javed Ahmed Ghamidi to engage ina debate on Islam.
ALI SINA
 Ali Sina is probably one of the most eminent critics of Islam, an ex-Muslim whorenounced Islam after reading the Quran. Ali Sina has managed to create amovement against Islam and has grouped together a group of ex-Muslims who

share his opinions on Islam. He has challenged Islamic scholars to disprove thefallacies that he has identified in the Quran and Hadith.
JAVED AHMAD GHAMIDI
 Javed Ahmad Ghamidiis a respected Islamic Scholar who has been recentlyappointed by the Pakistani Government to help facilitate the government in‘modern’ interpretation of Islam and to do Ijtehad for the development of acosmopolitan modern Islamic Society. Javed Ghamidi has been under thetutelage of Amin Ehsan Islahi and idealizes the writings of his teacher withutmost reverence. Initially expelled from Jamaat e Islami due to some differencewith the party’s founder Maududi, Ghamidi has managed to develop a restrictedfollowing of his own. He has been actively involved in the government’sinitiative to revamp and restructure Islamic Ordinances in Pakistan like HudoodOrdinance and Zina Ordinance.
