Tariq has often been touted as the Islamic Luther. However a reading even of his English written books indicate that he is more like his grandfathers co mentor Sayyid Qutb but a little more suave. I have begun a study to compare the two and hope to have something available at the end of the year. I have a blog on Sayyid Qutb and Islamists in general that explores the Islamists mind set. You may be interested in visiting and contributing
to this blog that explores the totality of Qutb and Islam in the form of considered essays.

Not one to spread gossip you may be interested in some gossip. In Wikipedia in the article about the gentleman there was a section which announced his son was gay and “marrying” his lover. I was able to save the piece but when I went back it had been taken off. I have put the section on my Blog and have the original. Possibilities are (1) some one out side the family was being smart and some one (Tariq? ) removed it or (2) the son put it on to tell his old man as he couldn’t tell him face to face and the family? removed it. Though this is a very private affair I hope for the son’s sake , if its true, that Tariq is being extremely supportive. Anyone out there know anything??
