'Statements about mocking the scholars' "Remember! Only the Sunnī scholars of Aĥl-e-Sunnat are to be respected. As far as the Scholars of other deviant sects are concerned, you should alienate yourself even from their shadows. Respecting them is strictly forbidden. To listen to their sermons, or to read their books or to sit in their company are all prohibited acts and are a lethal poison for one’s faith."
