Dear brother Dr. Shabbir,
Invitation gratefully accepted. It's my pleasure and privilege. Although I am no match for the brilliant and inspiring company you keep. Quran's message must go forward anyway. We must reach our destination. Great Pervaiz pinpointed that destination by saying that new and novel interpretations of Quran will continue to come up with the advancement in knowledge and intellect and with new scientific discoveries. The last word will have to be left up to the last man.
Right now we have to keep busy in discovering the genuine interpretations from the rubble and debris of Jewish infiltrations. The counter revolution by Jews was carried out starting 40 AH. The dynastic monarchies of old Qureshi despots sponsored them by aiding and abetting in their criminal manipulations and fabrications into Quranic meanings. We only have to keep our visions open and broad. Sentimentality detracks. Keeps our intellect dormant.
Intrusions into our 'comfort zones' of thought should not make us impolite and violent. In my humble opinion, this is the essence of evolution.
We have to do away with myth, worships, rituals and dogmatic creeds. I am all praise for brother Bob. He very successfully tried to do just that in his detailed thesis. May God add to his knowledge and wisdom
God bless you and all the friends who are shouldering this great responsibility.
