An intriguing and thoughtful post on the blog of the current chair of the Pakistan Youth Alliance. Glad to see thoughtful insights into Sufism.
The Mullah, Sufi Paradox: Of Mullahs and Sufis « Syed Ali Abbas Zaidi’s Blog.
“Truly, Mullah Sufi is an intriguing name. Intriguing because Islamic history is full battles between Sufis and Mullahs, both critical of each other to every extent possible One would like to meet Mullah Sufi of the Swat-fame and inquire as to what are his thoughts regarding this undeniable clash between mystical and orthodox Islam. He might give a fatwa therein declaring Sufis as heretics and non-Muslims or He might claim to be a bridge between the two extremes.”
