Ali K. | 10 years ago | Reply | Recommend Good Riddance. He spent his life dedicated to making the lives of others especially minorities miserable. Mawdudis children must be taken to task for the suffering they have caused not lauded in death just because it is not PC in our society to do otherwise. The cultural imprint these a**holes have left is not something that should be taken lightly.
IMRAN MALIK | 10 years ago | Reply | Recommend A great loss to the Muslim Ummah. its end of an era. But unfortunately we have not utilized his services and thought process in our country and banned him for baseless reasons. Media too has not given his death any importance. They have treated it as a normal death.
