My understanding of salat is that millions of others who think without any prejudice including my very respectable brother Shabbir. I was trained namzi since the age of five. So you can imagine the amount of force it took to break those shackles of training, bonding and sense of belonging one has to loose if he tries to even think otherwise. It was the most dificult and challanging issue at that point. Only a person who has been there can understand that it's not laziness but the realization of the fact that what we are doing is not what Allah wants from us... and we have actually made an easy way out of our true duties.
My brother who was a hard headed no2 Islamist after hearing what I understood said that what i was saying about salat was even more difficult to carry on, so who would even want to understand! :)
