Petty rhetoric.

Reader comment on item: Non-Muslims Who Fast for Ramadan
in response to reader comment: Hypocrisy at its best

Submitted by Amin Riaz (United Kingdom), Dec 27, 2013 at 21:32

Our dear Amin Riaz very categorically and very self righteously stated that KSA (Kingdon of Saudi Arabia) has every right to ban whomsoever it wishes.

Correct. It is up to KSA.

Hypocrisy, as showcased by Amin Riaz, is exacty what all people in the world have to oppose at every juncture. Amin Riaz will probably not entertain the idea that the western and eastern democracies should ban belief systems that they do not like. But he does not mind if KSA bans some belief systems.

But dearest - you did not bother to ask my opinion over this . . . hence you passed judgement based upon hatred/prejudice/bias/dogma

I have no problem with West banning whatever it likes . . . a country and its people surely have the right to choose [up to a certain extent] the system of government they wish to establish . . .

It is this hypocrisy that is the biggest enemy of Islamism. It is under the weight of this hypocrisy that Islamic politics will be forced to change.

Nonsensical rhetoric.
