It was asked Why Arunji can't come to debate against Zakir. Firstly it seems as if the whole muslim world is dependent for its survival on Zakir! Which is both Good News and Bad. Its Good as Zakir actually tells a lot of lies. Evident from his planting of Fake Shankracharya Devananda saraswati see youtube. Mistranslations of Bhavishya Puran which states that Muhammeds religion will be demoniacal and not what Zakir claims. Mistranslations of Veda. Borrowing ideas from Heretical Ahmediya writers and not acknowledging its source. His very interaction whith Qadhayani writings itself demands that he be stoned to death by shariah. Ha! Ha! Never mind, won't be missed. Zakir is not an intellectual, otherwise he would not subscribe to thought police or resort to plain lies. Arguments need a rational answer not lies or intimidation. The good news is of course that if the best islam can produce is a lying showman then why would anyone worry about islam? And that makes bad news for muslims, Worrying isn't it?
