"If I were a Hindu, I would hate Islam...": Hindu-Muslim reconciliation w/ Sheikh Imran Hosein

LISTEN to the FULL episode 15 of "Independent Thought & Freedom" w/ paradigm-shifting Islamic Scholar Sheikh Imran Hosein BELOW! 

As a Hindu, I was shocked to hear my guest, the renowned and paradigm-shifting Islamic scholar announce in our conversation: "If I were a Hindu, I would hate Islam."

This is based on his very scholarly Sufi study of Islam and Islamic Eschatology -- "the roadmap to the end of time", in his definition.

Just as Christians must repent for their sins of Imperialism, Sheikh Hosein also says that Muslims must repent and reconcile for the sins of oppression and imperialism committed in the name of Islam.

A strong critic of what he calls "Protestant Islam", he is critical of the present Turkish leadership, the Ottomans, the Mughals, the Saudis.

A former Foreign Service Officer, he has devoted his life since 1985 to the study of geopolitics withing the context of Islamic Escatology -- a field of study which he pioneered -- and transcending destructive sectarianism of all sorts.

This amazing conversation is incredibly wide-ranging and iconoclastic.

We talk about New Zealand, Islam, Russia, China, the Ottomans, the Mughals, the US, Christianity, Hinduism and much more. 

It is an amazing, paradigm-shifting interview.
