Ida Glaser and Mehdi Hasan's discussion takes in the Qur'an, revelation and authenticity
Mehdi Hasan and Ida Glaser Ida Glaser and Mehdi Hasan Ida Glaser and Mehdi Hasan I must say I laughed out loud when we cut back to Ida's speechless face after Mehdi told her the Quran came down from the clouds, has no textual history, and therefore must be infallible. We don't have textual data to back up the traditional claims that Mehdi makes here. Mehdi: "That's a good objection." Here Mehdi comes across as the confident, but rather ignorant, first year student ill-advisedly taking on the prof. There is only going to be one winner. I could go on, and if Mehdi can explain any of these basic scientific errors I'd be very impressed. For bonus points he could tackle the intergalatic star-goats reported by Muhammed set out in these "reliable" hadiths that he relies on... (iii) Mehdi says he is glad this "centralisation process" happened because ... it prevented Biblical inconsistencies. It is hard to believe that Mehdi genuinely thinks the 'truth claims' of the Qu'ran have passed every test. Though for him the key test is the one he tellingly calls 'the test of time'. Basically it is the institutional weight of Islam that convinces him. The clincher for him that it is a 'great religion' and that he was brought up in it: manifest destiny in action. There has been masses of this in the case of Christianity, but very little in the case of Islam...which definitely puts Peter, and Glazer, in the stronger intellectual position...Peter and Glazer have already taken into account all the problems of textual and historical interpretation - Mehdi seems to be unable to engage with them at all and resorts simply to assertions. There is clearly no future for 'truth tests' as Mehdi has already decided it is an 'infallible book'. Mehdi, that's not vindication, that is the Quran and its proponents falling flat on its face amid tears of laughter. That is an unworthy response, Mehdi. Much better from Ms Glaser, more of the same from Mr Hasan. Mr Hasan says It's quite remarkable to read someone following that tradition use it as an assertion of being a 'liberal' as Mr Hasan does - 'I slag off Muslims too!' Of course you do. It's what your Saudi friends do, all the time. Finally, it may well be odd that Mehdi Hasan is political editor of the New Statesman, but the mag is now a complete irrelevance to the left - it's only a rich man's toy now, part of the reason it has problems with the NUJ.
