It is my personal opinion that postings by people like Dr. Badar and Muhammad Irtaza (Rashad Khalifa group) should be strictly kept in check. It is quite obvious that they are fermenting discord rather than spreading knowledge. Irtaza was slyly posting Submitters-themed messages and freely using Khalifa’s wayward translation, until someone had the good sense to alert the moderator. Irtaza has not been seen since.
Dr. Badar, I should humbly say, needs to do some serious introspection. If so many people, all at once, have stood up against his ideas, there must obviously be something wrong. I’m not saying that “might is right”, but I think the forum members are well-meaning people who know their Islam better than many others. They wouldn’t be discouraging someone just for the heck of it.
