1 Interesting Times  Mon, Mar 7, 2011 8:31:11am

How common are these extremist views in the UK's Muslim community? I hope it's not turning into a mini-version of Pakistan's situation, where a vicious, violent minority is overwhelming and intimidating moderates.

re: #1 publicityStunted

It's pretty bad. From Wikipedia:

The majority of mosques are Sunni; in 2010, the affiliation of the mosques was 47% Deobandi, 25% Barelvi, 6% Salafi, 3% Maudoodi-inspired; of the remainder many were part of other Sunni traditions or unaffiliated, while 66 were Shi'a (4%).

Deobandi, Salafi, and Maudoodi are hardline fundamentalist. Barelvi has had conflict with all the Deobandis, they have also been related to radical actions, namely the assassination of Salman Taseer. It's fairly safe to say that Britain is already a miniature version of Pakistan.

Here is a post from Dr Hasan's blog.

[Link: unity1.wordpress.com...]

With the Name of Allah, All-Merciful, Most Merciful

A FURTHER CLARIFICATION &
RETRACTION

Further to my detailed statement dated 15th February 2011 about evolution, I would like to state, after reflecting on the matter and listening to the advice of others:

1. I regret and retract some of my statements in the past about the theory of evolution, especially the inflammatory ones.

2. I do not believe that Adam, peace be upon him, had parents.

3. I seek Allah’s forgiveness for my mistakes and apologise to others for any offence caused.

4. This does not excuse the cowardly and fraudulent campaign spreading lies and slander against me over the last two months.

5. Neither does it excuse those who have continued their mediaevalist, hair-splitting theological and jurisprudential discussions whilst remaining silent about the clear incitement to murder uttered by some in their midst. “Slaughter the people, but worry about killing mosquitos.”
