Here is an example and it is from the embarrassing story of the "Satanic Verses" in the Qur'an

Now compare the Arabic tafsir by Ibn Kathir of Q22:52 where the story is mentioned:

http://quran.ksu.edu.sa/tafseer/katheer/sura22-aya52.html

copy-paste and use googletranslate (yes it is not the best) and compare it with this English translation of Ibn Kathir's tafsir of Q22:52

http://www.qtafsir.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=2495&Itemid=77#2

The story is almost all gone, because it is embarrassing to Muslims!

So if you cannot read Ibn Kathir in Arabic you will miss the whole story. Those translators have no shame!

Next: I will review the lies of Pakistani Muslims about the translation of Q25:52 and the translation of al-Basmala in Sahih International
