Assalamu Alaykum brothers, Despite the ridiculous and outright disgusting statements made by the brothers at Quilliam Foundation

not a single Sunni Alim has said or done anything about them, because they sell themselves as anti-Wahabi, anti-terrorist, hoping to use the strong anti-wahabi feelings among us to trick us into silence or support for them. In fact, they are much worse than Wahabis as you will see. We need a round of denunciations of these people, because they are confusing and deviating many Muslims with their false claim of support from Sunni Ulema. 786

The Quilliam Foundation - A Warning
We focus on the Quilliam foundation because they unlike other secularist organisations they try to claim their authority & reference for their beliefs from classical Sunni Islamic sources, use deceptive methods to get access to masajids and Islamic institutions, and trick influential people and the government ministers into believing they have the best insight on how to deal with terrorism. This group is led by 2 people: Ed Husain, and Maajid Nawaz, who are both co-founders and co-directors of the Quilliam Foundation. It is funded a million pounds a year by the government, Maajid Nawaz and Ed Husain both get £85k a year, which is more than MPs who get paid £63k a year. [] This short document provides a list of direct quotes from these people ANTI-SHARIAH STATEMENTS This group reject that there are some aspects of Shariah that must be applied by the government. They claim that Shariah has never been applied by any Muslim government, sultan or Khileefah in the past, and say anybody that believes in incorporating Shariah in law in Muslim countries is an extremist or "Islamist". In June 2008 Maajid Nawaz went to give testimony in the US Senate, arguing that; "Sharia as State Law is a Modern and Irreligious Innovation" * "This again is a modern innovation unheard of in traditional Islamic sources. Muslim history is in fact bereft of examples of any type of Shari'ah being wholesale adopted as state law...On the contrary, ordinary Muslims are perfectly happy for the Shari'ah to remain a personal code of conduct....." *Maajid Nawaz in the Senate: *"The Concept of State has no Importance for God"*: *"How realistic is the expectation that Muslim-majority countries can really separate church (religion) and state?"*: He also tried to argue in his tour that there is room in a modern interpretation of Islam that would allow homosexuals. Ed Husain says that belief in *" Islamic state under Sharia Law – engendered anti-Semitism, homophobia, intolerance of Muslim women who did not adopt the hijab, and hatred of 'hedonistic Western lifestyles' – everything from clubbing to feminism."*
