    খুবই দুঃখজনক ব্যাপার যে, মূল বইটি ১৯৯১সালে প্রকাশিত হলেও বাংলাদেশে এখনো এর অনুবাদ কিংবা মূল বইটি এ্যাভেইলেবল নয়। জামায়াত নেতাদের আর বকা আর দেব কি, ইসলামপন্থী বুদ্ধিজীবী ভাইদের দায়িত্বহীনতা তো আর কম নয়… আর তা না হলে এত দিন পরে আবার এসব বইয়ের রিভিউ পড়তে হবে কেন…

    The debate between Dr. Effendi and Taji Mustafa shows the poor intellectual condition of the ummah. I don’t see anything in this debate except debaters’ parroting their own opinions without properly defending and elaborating their respective opinions. They were constantly repeating the words like ‘Model’ and ‘values’ without defining it. So how could they expect to reach a settlement?! On one hand, there is Taji Mustafa who surprisingly doesn’t understand what a model is or elaborate what was the model of Prophet and the righteous caliphate. Nor he could encounter Dr. Effendi for his overt mistakes. On the contrary, there is Dr, Effendi who was giving such a obvious mis-account of Muslim history and hadith. To defend his position on the falsity of the hadith of killing the second claimant of caliphate, he said that this hadith couldn’t be true because Aisha, Jubair and Talha were then supposed to know this hadith and hence wouldn’t fight Ali and If the hadith were true, ansars wouldn’t propose for two Imams at saqifah banu sa’idah. The obvious flaw in this argument of Dr. Effendi is that no sahabi was hafidh al hadith. So it’s very much normal for a sahabi not to know a particular hadith. Moreover, Not all the ansars were present in Saqifah. The most shameful blunder that was made by Dr. Effendi was to bringing the argument of Aisha, Jubair and Talha’s fighting against Ali. Where did Dr. Effendi get this idea that they were fighting Ali to claim caliphate?! They fought ali just to demand the prosecute the murderers of Uthman.
