Such is the narrow mindedness and extremism of some Sunnis that they will ostracise anyone who sees things from a slightly different perspective, even if their beliefs are perfectly sound and they have always stood against things like sulh kullism. It is religious fanaticism to sever ties with fellow Sunnis just because they don't deal with matters the exactly the way you do. Have those extremist not learnt adab al-ikhtilaf? Differing with someone doesn’t mean hounding them, and resorting to verbal abuse them and threats. These are toxic patterns with a good dose of underlying personality (read mental) problems. Imam Shahid Ali thinks this is Cobra Kai Karate “Strike first, strike hard, no mercy”, and not one person is spared from his Su al Dhann should they not entirely agree with him or differ with his methods. His extremism is the result of either extreme naivety (I say this because it’s impossible to believe that there aren’t people in the background using him for their own personal agenda) or simply a failure to properly identify and separate issues in order of severity. A Sunni openly promoting kufr is far more severe than him differing with you in how to address a certain problem. The irony is, when people point out Shahid Ali’s inconsistencies, the kickback is immediate and what we call ‘victim mentality’ becomes his main line of defense. People are labelled as thugs, bullies, cult followers, or simply fitna. Well, like they say, don’t dish it out if you can’t take it. To Imam Shahid Ali I say: There is more than one way of dealing with matters. Calm down and learn how to critique without insulting and burning bridges. You might be right, but there’s a way to do and say things. Keep going on the same track and it will be at the expense of all your relationships. Be fair. Not everything requires you to spit out your dummy.
