Saleem Reza Noor was raised in a liberal, free thinking Muslim family. His father fought against the Jamaat-e-Islami party and Political Islam and was killed by them. Noor is a writer on internet forums against Jamaat-e-Islami and its ideology. Here is an excerpt from the interview followed by a link to the whole article:
My father was a newspaper man in 1969 when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. He was very excited about that great scientific adventure and was publicizing the news day and night with alluring headlines and photographs, but the Jamaat-e-Islami was telling ignorant people in villages that it was a ploy by Jews and unbelievers.
They said the moon was a “holy place” so no human being could make an imprint on it and if they tried to do so, then Allah will take revenge with unthinkable destruction to them and humankind. They confused people by representing Allah and the religion of Islam in such a way that made people believe conquering the moon was only possible in the imagination.
