Even Al Ghazali was criticised by some such as Al Tartushi, Ibn Al Jawzi, etc I believe. Didn't some scholars of his time burn the Ihya? It happens sometimes- it doesn't mean that these other scholars are not respected in their own right. In the same way, if someone doesn't like Imam Ahmed Rida, it doesn't mean they're somehow not worth listening to. We are not a cult. It turns out scholars can find fault in other scholars and still be sunni ulema worth respecting Of course, illegitimate criticism from wahabis etc is a different matter.
