Please Mo Answer

My post on Mo Ansar’s interview “Isn’t Islam Anti-Women” narrowly focused on the issue of women in Islamic countries, and Mo’s positions on compared to Muslim feminists I know who make him far from enlightened.

That post “Islam and Women” – and my thanks to those that shared and continue to – can be found here.

Other issues with the interview include the historical accuracy of what Mo said and his credibility as a spokesperson for enlightened Islam.

On these points historians Llewelyn Morgan and Tom Holland have used twitter to ask the questions that Mo Ansar could have been asked during Vicky’s interview. She invited such questions to be posed to her.

As they appeared they are from Llewelyn Morgan:

Whether Mo will answer we shall see.

  1. This post really should be called “But Ansar, came there none.”, or possibly “No Ansar, came the stern reply.”

  2. He’s been suggesting that all those who disliked the interview, or want his views to be challenged, are bigots.
