Muslim cleric who trashed Christianity in Easter address named

The Muslim cleric who made the address in the controversial Easter Sunday video that FBC News was forced to apologise for has been named as Shaykh Anwar Sahib AlMadani.

In the video posted on Youtube, Almadani is said to be Senior Lecturer of Islamic Online University, but an examination of the website reveal no further information and the suggestion his details have been taken down.

Inquiries to the university prompted the information that students can contact him via another teacher who forwards queries to him. 

We have sent him an email with a list of questions including how he came to be making the address.

In the 25 minute long video, AlMadani addresses everyone as 'respected audience and brothers and sisters' and asks people to listen with an open mind but goes on to openly rubbish the Christian faith and Jesus Christ.

He was neither named and nor was the denomination he was representing revealed in the program.

AlMadani's address has been seen as a wider conspiracy by the station's CEO Riaz Khaiyum and his brother, the illegal attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, to destroy the Christian faith in Fiji and promote radical Islamic agenda.

FBC apologised for airing the broadcast saying: “This was a paid programme and the views expressed in it are not those of FBC’s. 

"FBC adheres to strictly scrutinise all programmes that it airs to avoid the issue of causing any particular person or community any offence. 

"We apologise sincerely for any sensitive material that was broadcast on the day that we failed to scrutinise”.

Apology aside, the broadcast shows FBC not only insulted the Christian faith but considers itself above Fiji laws.

Contrary to requirements in the Fiji Media Industry Development Decree, the FBC TV program also failed to inform the viewers if the program was paid for, and if yes, then by who.

And despite a number of viewers complaining, just one Letter to the Editor was printed in the Fiji Times with the Fiji Sun running a small apology from FBC TV.

FBC could also be accused of promoting disharmony and inciting religious hatred. And ultimately, the question can be asked: Would Christians be allowed to call Muslims 'Talibans' openly in public and in a paid ad, just as the AlMadani denounced Christianty as a pagan faith?

We are reminded of the regime decision to punish the Fiji Times editor and publisher with a $300,000 fine and suspended six month jail term (and $10,000 for its publisher) for carrying a report from a New Zealand newspaper that noted the absence of the rule of law in Fiji.

There is also the more recent decision to bury the investigation into the nine minute video that exposed army, police and Corrections Officers beating and torturing an escaped prisoner and a second man accused of harbouring him.

Read the excerpt below from the broadcast or listen to the video and decide if Fiji authorities like the Media Industry Development Authority or the Catholic Church in Fiji should be taking this matter further.

“Easter celebrations did not begin when Christianity began. The Bible does not command Easter observance. Easter was celebrated by pagans in their worship of evil spirits thousands on years before Jesus was born. God condemns the practices of Easter type worship and calls it an abomination. Many of the Christian leaders know the truth about pagan Easter but refuse to repent. Muslims believe Jesus was a wonderful and humble messenger of Allah who came down and revealed the Gods’ word to his people. Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God nor they believe that God ever chose to come down to earth in a form of a man to die for your sins. According to Islam, Jesus never died on the cross nor ever wanted to die on the cross, nor ever was born to die on the cross. He never died for anyone's sins.”

Thank you Dan ( @Dan 3:16) you answered that very well. I don't know much about Islam. All I know is that any god that rewards his followers who kill by having a f!@#$ with 21 virgins must be a pretty screwed up god. After you've f!@#$%^ 21 virgins, they would be no longer virgins right! Then what do you do for the rest of eternity. What sort of religion is that!

Now you telling me that all these verses are out of context? You know Arabic so you should understand the Qur'an and its message which is clear and not ambiguous. These verses below are clear and someone with little intellect can tell that its quite contextual in meaning and that is - THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD!!!! 1. Deuteronomy 4:35,39 — Unto thee it was shown, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. (39) Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. 2. Deuteronomy 6:4 — Hear, O Israel: The LORD thy God is one LORD. [Note in Mark 12:28-34 how Jesus and a Jewish scribe he encountered understood this text.] 3.

Isaiah 37:16,20 — O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou has made heaven and earth.

Isaiah43:10,11 — Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he:before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior. 14. Isaiah44:6,8 — Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.Fear ye not, neither be afraid; have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

15. Isaiah 45:21 — Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time: who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Savior; there is none beside me. 16.

And the second is like, namely this, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question. 21. John 17:3 — And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 22.

To the indigenious Fijians and all Christian fellow human beings - if you have not read the Qur'an then how can you be judgmental about it. Where does it promote terrorism, incest, killing without just rights, murder etc etc which most of you are blaming it for. If you only read then you will know the truth. How can you pass a judgement if you have not heard the case and both sides of the story. I read the bible and come to a conclusion that the basic message of worshiping one GOD is TRUE and then later on someone added and falsified it with the ideology of trinity. Now its your turn to read the Qur'an and pass the judgement and not be a blind follower and a scared skeptic throwing abuse without knowledge. I have answered Dan who is trying to blame me for quoting bible out of context. How many verses have I brought to prove that within the bible itself both NT and OT is the command to worship ONE GOD (THE GOD OF ABRAHAM) that we Muslims worship. I will make this my last post as it is up to you what you believe and there is no compulsion in religion as stated in the Qur'an. Regards. I have not used any foul speech and if you so godly and faithful then neither should you. Let the foul speech be the speech of the atheist who DO NOT believe in any GOD or CREATOR and hence are heedless and thus opportunistic in such circumstances. Take care

religion of preace and tolerance? said...

anon 6.17:

forget about the book. let's see what islam, the religion of 'peace and tolerance', as you claim, does in practice, because that's the real indicator:

Recently, Syrian rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed dogs with parts of his body, according to a nun who says that the West ignores atrocities committed by Islamic extremists on the Christian community.

Sister Agnes Miriam Cross, said: "His only crime was to be a Christian." She said she found the decapitated body on the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs.

He had just married and was about to be a father.

Now is the time for you to answer questions using your book....
You do not know the Bible...so stop commenting on it because you will only reveal more how blinded and lost you are....
Why don't you take some time and read the Bible yourself without any coommentary from your beloved muslim scholar who has succeeded in brainwashing you to believe evrything they fed you without riticaly analysing it...thats at least what serious christians do...
You just quot
ed the name Lord God again...I told you...
the Hebrew meaning of the two nouns....Lord God...if I break it doown to you analytically. ....Lord is an adjective Noun....and is singular....God is a plural Noun....translated singular in English....Why do I have to waste my time trying to explain in details when you won' t even bother to read it with an open mind....
Answer all the questions being thrown to you first by tne people in this forum. and we will continue again....

Many commentators have said compared to their population size in Fiji the Muslims are holding a disproportionately large share of the top jobs in the country. Some have even said the current coup is a "Muslim coup" and that is the reason why the Muslims are enjoying a favoured status in the regime.
This probably explains why we frequently notice the following kind of letter in the local newspapers:
I would like to thank Mr Bainimarama.You are doing a wonderful job in moving Fiji forward.May God bless you and Fiji.
Rafi Saheed
New Zealand".
Bainimarama is no doubt doing a "wonderful job" - for the Muslims in Fiji.
The pro-regime letters by Muslims is not coincidental,is it?

Iman's inciteful Talibanistic speech said...

Eda kurabui ena levu ni nodra sasaga taka toka me o ira taudua ga na 'vakabauta dina' e noda vuravura raraba.

What a bunch of fanatical lying lunatics these radicals are! They don't have a foot to stand on, can't hold their weight against the historical bearings of Christianity, they seem like a bunch of fanatical so-called religious extremists, who carry a huge grudge on their shoulders all because of the LIE that they call as 'their faith'. hah. I guess that's why they can't stand Christianity because it shows them up for who they are : fanatical, religious fraudsters who perpetuate a LIE with violence - against their own and against those who are non-muslims, as witnessed in all muslim countries.

Well whatever, since for all we care they can go worship the swaying coconut palm as their 'god', but please don't insult the rest of the HUMAN RACE by making the mother of mistakes of trying to impose a made-up set of plagiarized beliefs, on others. LOL.

I think this bearded guy should face the full brunt of the law, along with Riyaz Khaiyum, the self-imposed CEO of FBC and brother of treasonous, illegal AG, to be charged as a knowing accomplice in inciting hatred and insults against the Christian faith in Fiji. Da mai leqa vei ira qo!!

"...Sahib, in a sermon at Masjid At-Taqwa mosque in Manukau, said the Fiji broadcast was "the right message and delivered it the right way. I know that maybe I may become a target, but we have to know that we have to sacrifice ourselves".

Fiji-born Sahib said he arranged the broadcast with FBC head Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, the younger brother of the most prominent Muslim in Bainimarama's regime, Aiyaz.

He paid between $300 and $400 to go on FBC, to say God condemned Christian practices, calling Easter an abomination.

"...Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God nor do they believe that God ever chose to come down to Earth in a form of a man to die for your sins," Sahib said. "He never died for anyone's sins."

"Muslims make up seven per cent of Fiji's population but fill key roles in Voreqe Bainimarama's military regime."

Islam: Fraudulent and jealous said...

Muslim radicals attack Christianity to legitimise their own fraudulent and bogus religion. In their they know that Islam was plagiarised from Christianity and Judaism. This uncomfortable truth sees then relently attack Christianity and brutally kill christians.

They are jealous of the success of non-Muslim countries - especially the Christian West and Israel- because they themselves are stuck in the medieval world of polygamy, beheadings, child brides, and fatwas.

They hark back to the centuries when 'Islam' was the dominant imperialist power and can't accept that their power has ebbed away through their own fanaticism, while other religions have flourished because of their liberal and egalitarian societies.

Moderate muslims do not directly take part in atrocities, but unfortunately many keep quite or quietly cheer and applaud from the sidelines and provide a cover for the radicals.
