Being England's greatest criminal with a network of people I can say half the problems would be resolved if: 1 students of knowledge, who probably live in the same city and study with the same teacher, could discuss these issues behind close doors. Placing discussions on forums prior to a private discussion makes things worse. All the problems would be resolved if: 2 all teachers and public figures involved should desist from divulging stories of private meetings and discussions to laymen, students and others who it does not concern. Stories are circulating now of different things. The piety of all involved is only known to their Creator. 3 a body of scholars need to be formed. Until no committee for issues of disputes is not formed these types of disputes will continue. Why will they continue? Because people who are considered 'sheikhs' in the UK or the west believe they are ultimate authorities and as long as that is the case they do not like being corrected. Otherwise why wouldn't people retract once they have been notified? Like when Munawwar Ateeq retracted on an issue as soon as he was notified. The afforementioned was one of those who advised that Aslam should have been contacted and notified. When a public figure refuses to acknowledge a mistake or retract once the mistake is public, he has left the door open to be refuted from all angles. If he is able to counter the refutations then let him do so. The minimum that could have been done is to take the video down now that people contacted the party involved. Refusal to do so is a clear example of what makes people refute such positions. If the video remains and the person keeps the same view then this becomes an open dialogue for everyone to correct the erring position as it is in the public. Some of these public figures are kings of their own little corner, unfortunately.
