It's been ages I didn't listen any Ghamdi Sahab's lectures. So, today I just opened YouTube, and to my horror I saw one video why Gahmdi left Pakistan.
That video was uploaded in Jan 5, 2011, at the time of the assassination of Salam Tasser, Governor Punjab who took the clemency appeal of that Christan woman sentenced to death over blasphemy allegations. Well, only Allah knows the best who did what. His own body guard killed him. After that everyone became so careful because no sane person want to be assassinated like governor.
I knew that he is no more in Pakistan, shows up in some news shows via telephone from Malaysia and Dubai tough I thought he is a scholar and might be traveling for lectures or for some other reason. He has " left " Pakistan never occurred to me.
He said extremist has been threatening not only him even his neighbors too, so he decided it is better to left.
What an unfortunate nation, aha !!!!!!!!!!
Then I saw two another videos Vid -1 and Vid-2.
The vid -1 is whole propaganda against him by typical jahil mullahs, with their typical 100xs repeated bogus talks I can't buy in this lifetime. And vid -2 's main focus is on his two cents on Hijab mostly and pointing his other statements.
Who gave YouTube and Facebook to this jahil nation ?????????????????
Every time they do this. Here someone said or did one thing they don't like, here they are gonna exploite that individual via YT and FB. Man, ban media, every kinda media and let them be in caves.
Why this happened to him?
Just cause he is a liberal scholar. He does have long beard. He does not wear taupi on his head. His tone and tune is mild. His logic are excellent. His knowledge is superb. I never saw his angry, yelling, and imposing his point of view on others. His views are moderate. He is discussing issues, not converting anyone. Teaching Islam but leave the decision to people, whether they want to follow it or not. And this is quite a pain in ass for many.
He is not rubbing religion on others face. This is his crime, right ?
The problem with this nation is that they want to follow bidad and pretty happy with it. They love extremism. Islam in Pakistan is in its worst form. And when ever some one gives a crack to teach them right thing with logic and explanation, no one understand. So, good na. What ever happening here in the name of religion, and God is all inevitable.
All I will say is that one of the biggest enemy of Pakistan is jahil mullah mafia who has spread the ugly picture of Islam. According to them anyone who don't follow them blindly is kafir. Shia is kafir. Sunni is kafir. This whole world is kafir .Only they are doudh dhulay angalic creatures
It is so sad to see that how people are so scared to say any thing new, and logical. People are scared to stand for the right things. Shia is scared of Sunni. Minorities are scared to death. Scholars like Ghamdi is scared.
He never spread any extremism and anything which is kufur.He is not giving fatwas to kill women if the singing or dancing, marrying of their own choice. He is not preparing brained washed students to blow up themselves, or killed anyone who is non-believer. He is not throwing acid on woman face.
There is a huge difference between being liberal and moderate. But yeah, I am totally aware of the fact that the word "moderate ' ain't in our dictionary. And those who claim themselves liberals are laughable.
His leaving has made me so sad.
I started my Qur'an very very late. My parents send me to the local Masjid for Qur'an learning at the age of 4 or 5. It is pretty normal age for any kid to start, and mostly kids over here complete their Qur'anic studies at the age of 6 to 7.
But I ran away after one week. That environment, the crowd, the Mullah was too much for me. Till my 20s I was so far away from religion. I still am.
Then Geo TV started one show called " Ghamdi. " I wanted to learn my religion, but I can't find anyone to tell me, what I was looking for _________peace, harmony, and God's true words. I was not buying the single world main stream mullahs was selling despite that I am born Muslimah. They repulse me.
That show was something I wanted so badly. Whole show was based on discussion and logic. So in the nut shell, I learned all my religion from him. His way of teaching is so off beat.
After that I started my Qur'an and still learning.
Everyone need a teacher, and books to learn. Our Holy prophet and his books are there for us. Just sometimes we need humans to make things easy for us. I ain't also not saying I follow him blindly. He could be wrong. However, he is an intellectual, and his teaching base on character building. And his shows are just merely discussion.
Nation who treat their scholars like this, and can't put up with discussions are pretty unfortunate.
Aur is qoam ka tu khudha hee hafiz. hai !!!!!
