Cancer Often Kills By Mass Effect

John O. Voll, Professor of Islamic History at Georgetown University reports the follwing sad observation:

‘A report of the impact of international Islamic education in China…notes that Chinese Muslims studying in the University of Medina had a more narrow and rigid definition of Islamic practice than those who had studied with the Grand Mufti of Syria in Damascus.’

– Asian Islam At The Crossroads

Of course, this is unsurprising.

No doubt Wahhabis will see this as wonderful news (or like ‘Imam’ Sudais, see it as another reason to try and kill opposing scholars/civilians/onlookers/children: ).

The rest of us however can only share Voll’s note of sadness at the pervasiveness of the malaise…
