Throughout our relatively short history many charges have been brought against the site regarding who it is run and funded by. Some times the claims are simply ignored for their absurdity whereas other times they are addressed in the comment replies.
Firstly, we are not funded by any special interest group, political party or ‘zionist organisations’. Recently a claim was spread on social networking sites that we were funded by the Israeli intelligence agency MOSSAD. This is another farfetched and false claim however there are people within the Islamic community willing to believe this. Any criticism of Islam they try and write off as part of a Zionist plot or Jewish persecution instead of examining the legitimacy of the claims.
Regarding the details of who we are for various reasons much is veiled. This is not to deceive but it is for the protection of our authors who come from all walks of life. If authors wish to bring their identity forwards they may and many do by referencing themselves by name as the author of their articles.
Some of our contributors include people from the United Kingdom, the US, Australia, Pakistan, India, Lebanon, Indonesia and other locations that are not known to myself. The credentials of our various authors vary from no formal academic qualifications to doctorate students. Non-Muslims, ex-Muslims and even Muslims. We have regular articles by published authors, public debaters and even lecturers.
We will soon be expanding our format and will reorganise articles accordingly as when this site was originally conceived we did not expect such a great influx of visitors and contributions.
