Anonymous comments

There can be genuine and understandable reasons why someone may send comments anonymously. This blog is willing to accept them and respond. However, when the purpose is deceit and trickery, this is unacceptable behaviour. Deceit is to pretend to be a different category of person from what you actually are. This "Muslim from Pakistan" has previously sent comments as "An Ahmadi", pretending to be a member of the Qadiani Jamaat, and falsely writing "(as)" after the name of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. To write "(as)" like this is to pretend before people that you are praying to Allah for him ("peace be upon him") while actually you are cursing him. This is hypocrisy of the worst kind. Then there is the deceit is supplying someone else's e-mail address as your own.

Trickery is that by posting anonymously, you can say things, in order to get out of a difficulty, which you would not be able to say if you were identifiable. A known person has known views, which can be attributed to him, and he is forced to work within a framework.

Anonymous posters can also make ridiculously inflated claims about themselves, such as these people claiming that they have vastly superior knowledge and arguments to defeat Ahmadis than did the opponents of previous times. Then why remain anonymous? Why not come in front of the Muslim world and receive acclaim? (If these people were scientists, and made unprecendented contributions to scientific knowledge, presumably they would post these anonymously and shy away from appearing in person to receive the nobel prize!)

Blog readers should know that these people claim that they tricked me, about 4 or 5 years ago, into translating into English Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din's book about Causes of the Split in the Ahmadiyya Movement, by representing themselves as disenchanted Qadianis who wanted to read, and perhaps accept, the Lahori point of view. This shows how grossly stupid they are! They tricked me into doing something extremely useful for the LAM cause, which, without being tricked, I might not have done!

"Muslim from Pakistan" has been sending comments from time to time under different names, a few of which I included and others I did not. The more comments he sent, the more it revealed about him, his thinking and his mode of operating. So now, through use of a fake identity, he has let slip his location and an educational institution he is connected with. These people want to remain floating in cyberspace only, and don't want to be linked with anything in the physical world lest their real existence becomes known.

  1. At least "Muslim from Pakistan" could do us the courtesy of letting us know if I am right about his location ("O" in California) and his college "M".
