I have no reason to believe that any engagement with the local Ulema will be productive given that the last time I presented proof of the despicable origins of the moon and star as […]

  • The crescent and star are signs established in paganism and are not representative of Islam in any way at all. Given its pagan origins, consider what that means when you prostrate on a mat that has this symbol on it, or when you pray in a mosque that is decorated with it as its highest […]
