Zia Sardar has a go at emel

Did anyone else see Ziauddin Sardar on BBC2’s Culture Show in the feature on emel magazine last night? He had the gall to criticise “emel” for being too “orthodox”, something he’s not too keen on, judging by the article they printed by him in which he welcomed the “bogus Jumu’ah” led by Amina Wadud in New York a few months ago, pouring scorn in a style distinctly similar to that of Muslim WakeUp! on those who opposed the event. I don’t know about anyone else, but I think it speaks volumes that he thinks emel’s orthodoxy is something to criticise, even as it has features on musicians like Sami Yusuf and the boxer Danny Williams - and his own article! There’s gratitude for you.
