Br Damon, AA!

1) You say,

a) "I understand fully ... the results that you hope to see from such an endevour, but Dr Shabbir is right, it will not change anything." and

b) "But I do believe that you are on to something when you mention that knowledge of the Arabic language can be a possible solution to said problem."

Apparently, the two above statements are contradicting each other. Could you please explain how they are in reconcilliation with [each other]?

2) According to your analysis, "It is NOT the language that causes people to follow N2I, it is the MINDSET and SHIRK TENDENCIES which cause people to embrace N2I."

Is there any way to avoid human bias and be sure of the True Messages of Allah swt without knowing its language in the first place?

Did even Ghulam Ahmad Pervaiz and Dr Shabbir Ahmad do without learnig the language of the Quran?

3) Br Sidqi is talking of teaching Arabic language to all kids starting from the KG -- so once they have grown up, they will have a chance to understand the Quran directly, without latching on some ulama or mullas. In this context,

where does your asking "Invite to the Quran with the maximum possible fidelity. Invite EVERYONE!! ... all human beings" fit in? Please explain.

4) As pointed out above: Br Sidqi is talking of teaching Arabic language to all kids starting from the KG -- so once they have grown up, they will be in a position to understand the Quran directly, without latching on some ulama or mullas. In this context,

where does your point "Arrange a program ... for teaching the Arabic language ... to EVERYONE... chinese, indian, ... straight, gay, democrat, republican... ALL HUMAN BEINGS" fit in? Is he saying that teaching Arabic will be restricted to some specific children only?

5) Related with the above:
Are there "straight, gay, democrat, republican" among kids? Starting right from the KG? If not, why have you put that condition in there?

NOTE: NOTE:
There are two distinct groups within us for learning Arabic: Adults and Children. Brother Sidqi is talking of the latter only. Conceivably because, covering all the adults is not as straightforward as covering all the children. This is implied from his statement "some thing has to be done instead of feeling pain and hurt and curse N2ism."
