Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?
in response to reader comment: What do Sunni Muslims think of al-Ahmadiyya? Let me help you: they are regarded as weird and liars and not real Muslims

Yes, I read Arabic and yes, once again (how many times must I say this?) I realize they are a sect, deemed heretical by Sunnis. And jihad in abeyance is certainly better than active jihad. Now, even if you don't agree that the Ahamdis are moderate/reformed, what is your (expert) opinion on the Ismai'ilis and various Sufis and Ibadis?
