Best of The Right Hook: Muslim cleric resigns

umar

 

He’s joined by Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri, Imam at the Al-Mustafa mosque in Blanchardstown, who explains the reasons behind his resignation from the Irish Council of Imams.

It is clear that Umar Al-Qadri is not actually taking a position on evaluating the mosques in regard to their connections with radicalism. He is putting his religious belief in the unity of Islam above his message of peace. He clearly does not name names and in fact his letter of resignation is more about process than substance. He is on a journey but still does not name what is going on. Clonskeagh and the SCR Mosque are clearly linked with the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas so it is time to see what his analysis is.

Up to now his commentary is big on peace but very limited in its analysis of the actual of groupings that he has concerns about.
