The Times discovers something shocking about religious believers

They want to convert you to their religious beliefs and are utterly convinced their own beliefs are “the truth” whereas others are false.

Shocking, I know.

A Muslim group that wants to open a giant £100 million mosque in London has set its sights on “winning the whole of Britain to Islam”.


Norfolk gets paid for this? Perhaps there was a lot more truth to Farangi’s attack on journalists than I first realised.

What next? The Pope is still preaching Catholicism? Marxists still write about class struggle? Evangelical missionaries seek to save souls for Christ? (See more discussion on this story by Indigo Jo.)

Norfolk namechecks Yoginder Sikand, a writer whose work I am familiar with. Sikand was editor of the now defunct Qalandar e-magazine. He is the author of a work on the madrassas of the subcontinent, Bastion of the Believers : Madrasas and Islamic Education in India. Some of his writings can be found at the Indian Muslims website. Sikand also has a piece on Deobandis published in Pakistan’s The Daily Times back in 2005.
