Barnabas Fund in trouble?

lick on the title to see the page from Engage.

'ENGAGE is a not-for-profit company that was founded in 2008 to help empower and encourage British Muslims within local communities to be more actively involved in British media and politics'. The article is entitled, 'Charity Commission may investigate booklet on ‘The Islamisation of the UK’'

'The Barnabas Fund is a charity ‘dedicated to supporting persecuted Christians’ and is lead by Dr Patrick Sookhdeo. Sookhdeo, whose other publications include 'Global Jihad: The Future in the Face of Militant Islam' and 'Islam the Challenge to the Church,' has frequently written articles which distort Islamic texts and teachings to give the false impression that Islam is an aggressive, usurpatory religion.'

What they do not relate is that Patrick Sookhdeo was born to a Muslim family. He is an apostate in heir eyes.

It appears that Engage is hopeful that the Charity Commissiones will be kind to them and judge that PS's voice should be silenced.

'In an essay he wrote for the Spectator entitled ‘The myth of moderate Islam’, Sookhdeo argued that in the Qur’an one could “find texts which specifically command terrorism, the classic one being Q8:59-60, which urges Muslims to prepare themselves to fight non-Muslims, ‘Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies’”

I trust the Barnabas defence will be that all they have published is fair comment which should not be judged, caught 'out', off the spin of ENGAGE.
