It is a sad reflection of the Muslim world that some court ulama are prepared to distort the teachings of the Qur’an and the Prophetic Sunnah to appease their paymasters. And they do so from the most sacred Mosque, al-Masjid al Haram in Makkah.
No informed Muslim would say that most rulers in the Muslim world follow the injunctions of Islam yet paid preachers offer them respectability by urging Muslims not to rebel lest it leads to greater fitna. It is a shame.
Incarceration, meant as punishment, is turning out to be a medium of education for victims.
