Iftekhar Hai Iftekhar A. Hai, one of ten children in a Muslim family, was born in an 'untouchable' community near Mumbai during British rule. He spent 11 years in a Catholic school, graduated from Podar College, a center of Hindu revivalism, and was able to come to the United States for graduate work, where his American mentoring came from his Jewish landlady, who became a close friend. After 25 years in the business community, he dedicated himself to interfaith education and became a leader of leaders. For three decades he has given hundreds of lectures and workshops in school, congregations, and conferences around the world. He was a founding member of United Muslims of America in 1983 and directs its Interfaith Alliance. He has been a trustee of United Religions Initiative, the San Francisco Interfaith Council, and the Interfaith Center at the Presidio. A columnist for the San Mateo Times, Iftekhar is a nationally recognized Muslim leader championing interfaith peace. He became a CESJ Counselor in 2006. TOP>>
I have been reading the emails of Iftekhar A. Hai, President, United Muslims of America (UMA) Interfaith Alliance (www.umaia.net)/(firstname.lastname@example.org) and trying to understand him and his views/analyses in the messages on interfaith.
Coming back to Iftekhar A. Hai, although they seem very interesting, informative and perfect but I have found his emails, shared with learned people of different religions, as very confusing and disturbing and could mislead and misdirect people from the truth and right path and create misunderstanding and wrong impression about God, original holy books and the divine messages. With due respect, Iftekhar A. Hai, in his emails on 'Hindu-Muslim Unity' and 'Heaven For All Good People - Says Quran', might be trying to explain facts properly, sincerely and honestly according to his analyses and understanding of the divine messages. I can be wrong but in my opinion, analyses and understanding Iftekhar A. Hai has failed to do so and instead seem confused and creating confusion. He needs to review them all so that he could deliver proper messages of Quran, other holy books and humanity and get the desired results of creating proper awareness, understanding and unity of people of all religions. Iftekhar A. Hai says: "The minimum criteria to please God are three points: Iftekhar A. Hai says and I agree: "All believers are equal in front of God from All Faiths". Yes, no denying but God has clearly explained in the original holy books about both the believers and non-believers, their nature, character, contribution, fate and final places. Iftekhar A. Hai, the criteria to please God are not three but FOUR POINTS and the fourth one is extremely important. Iftekhar A. Hai let's all guide, support and help put the misguided and lost Muslims on the right track first instead of trying to reform others.
