Farid Esack on "Towards an understanding of Islamic Liberation Theology"

1 comment:

  1. Whilst I agree that oppression should be challenged, why does he have to attack "moderate"/"liberal" Muslims and dispute the value of talking to non-Muslims? There is no need to take a hard theological line when calling for justice. He doesn't acknowledge the part Christians amongst others have played in developing liberation theologies. He used the term "option for the poor" which comes from Christian liberation theology and also in the past he spoke of how he valued cooperating with people from other religious backgrounds in the struggle against apartheid in his native South Africa.
