Islam - Islam in the UK - Mo Ansar



Defence of Hefazat-e-Islam




Mo Ansar

Mo Ansar is promoted by the BBC and the Guardian as a "moderate" Muslim. So it is no surprise to discover he is a right-wing Islamic reactionary.

He promotes the Muslim Brotherhood's Anas Altikriti.

Shocking support for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood from this extremist.
Tweets from here and here and here and here.

Mo Ansar has a problem trying to explain Islam's long support for slavery and lack of interest in ending it.
Muhammad himself bought, sold, captured and owned slaves and all of Islam supported slavery until recently.
Indeed, for centuries Islam was famous in Europe for capturing Europeans to use as "white slaves" (including sex slaves).
Faced with all this background, Mo Ansar attempts some ham-fisted defence of slavery itself.


Mo Ansar, 7 May 2012, defends the Saudi arrest of tweeter Hamza Kashgari for "blasphemy".
He faces a possible death sentence for harmless tweets about the Prophet Muhammad.
And Mohammed Ansar supports this.

Right-wing cleric supports arrest for blasphemy, 7 May 2012.

He supports sharia law.

He's not just a nutcase. He's sinister.

Mo Ansar, 29 Aug 2013, says everything was great in the Ottoman Empire 100 years ago.
Reply from here.


Mo Ansar keeps making "moderate" statements that only sow confusion when compared with other statements.

For instance, Mo Ansar promotes Yusuf al Qaradawi, who says gays and apostates should be killed. Does Mo Ansar condemn this?

I have repeatedly tried to get clarity, but no luck.

Exchange in Nov 2013.
It starts off well but quickly leads to confusion rather than clarity.
His reply was here.

I try again in Oct 2014, but get no answer.

I finally got my answer.

Defence of Hefazat-e-Islam

Islamist mobs from Hefazat-e-Islam march in Bangladesh, Apr-May 2013, calling for atheists to be hanged.

Mo Ansar defends the mobs, 7 May 2013: "Orthodox Bangladeshi Muslim? Protesting blasphemy & marginalisation by a violent secular govt? You're now 'Islamist' says the media."

Hefazat-e-Islam mob calls for death to atheists.
Mo Ansar defends Hefazat-e-Islam and complains about them being labelled as "Islamist".


He hates Israel.
And more.

Mo Ansar, 13 Oct 2015, is angry that a Palestinian terrorist boy is called names after he stabbed and critically injured a Jewish child.


He claims Muslims discovered America.
This is of course just pious Muslim pseudohistory.


He is a creationist.

He believes in Noah's Ark.

Sums it up

Ultimately, Mo Ansar's real problem is that "Allah" does not exist.

Best tweet ever about Mo Ansar.

Who I block on Twitter: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who: (a) target my job, (b) target my appearance, or: (c) libel me. Also, since 2016, abusive reporting has become a thing. I was targeted with abusive reporting by an Israel-hater pretending to be "Jewish". So I now also block: (d) any account that even hints that it reports its enemies, and: (e) any Israel-hater that claims to be Jewish. It is just self-defence.
